Should you be looking for some birthday party ideas for your kids, there are some great options in Los Angeles.
We have picked three popular attractions as possible options, but there will be costs involved. However, as you will probably be inviting family and friends along for the birthday celebration, you can share the expense. From chartering a bus with www.lacharterbuscompany.com to make travel easier, to contributing to group ticket prices at the listed attractions, there are affordable options.
Of course, there are free things to do, as you can see on another of our pages at www.missfrugalmommy.com but if you do have some spare cash, have a look at the following ideas.
The Los Angeles Zoo
Birthday packages start at $150 so this is the most affordable option on our list. With around 133 acres, in a place this size, your only problem will be knowing where to start. You should sit down with your kids before you go in and look at the map at www.lazoo.org to find out what animals they are interested in seeing, from flamingos to elephants. This way, you will avoid broken hearts should you fail to find time to see everything. However, for only $4 you could splurge out on a shuttle ride, which will give your poor, aching feet a rest from so much walking, and help you see everything the zoo has to offer. You could even take a treetop walk if vertigo isn’t a problem, letting you see all the wildlife from up above, though you should probably watch out for any passing eagles!
Mulligan Family Fun Center
There are great options for birthday parties, with food, drinks and two hours unlimited use of some of the best attractions this state of the art park offers, but this will be costly at over $250 per group. Again, share the costs, as your kids are guaranteed a fun-packed birthday party.
Activities include theme park rides, lazer tag, miniature golf, go-karts, batting cages, and waterslides. You can cut down on costs when visiting with a smaller group, and only pay for the activities your kids (and you) want to take part in.
Sky High Sports
Birthday packages are sky high (sorry), starting at $270, but dependant on your group you might also pay individually. You spend more money depending on how long you want to stay, starting at $15 for one hour, but look at the special rates at woh.skyhighsports.com.
Your kids will be bouncing off the walls in boredom when staying at home, so why not let them bounce around here instead! This enormous warehouse is filled with wall to wall trampolines, letting your kids burn off their energy. When they got bored of bouncing, if that’s even possible, there are also rope swings, ninja courses, bouncing basketball and foam pits. Meanwhile, you can take a break in the adult lounge which contains free wifi, a plasma tv, and best of all, an electric massage chair to help you fully relax.
