Hosting a birthday party for your Denver tween or teen can be a challenge. They’ve outgrown the themed party, are too cool to play in kids activity centers (although they secretly still love it), and even if they are having a sleepover they want to host a main event. Here are a few ideas.
Rent A Movie Theater
Kids of all ages love movies so why not rent a movie theater? What to play? For a pretty penny you can rent out a brand name theater and have a private screening of an in-theaters-only movie or for a more affordable price you can head to the Oriental Theater and play any movie that is already out on DVD.
Book A Mystery Dinner
Adams Mystery Playhouse™ hosts interactive mystery dinner theater events that are kid-friendly, and more importantly, kid approved. The house itself is something special, as it’s a colorful mansion that was once a mortuary. The goal of the evening is to solve the murder mystery but it’s done in a fun and engaging manner. A buffet dinner is included.
Not only do kids love to eat but with the popularity of Kid’s Baking Championship, MasterChef Junior, Chopped Junior, and even the adult cooking competitions and TV series—a pizza party just won’t do. If your teen is a foodie or simply wants a unique birthday party you can book a fully-customized private food tour. We’ll meet at the flagpole outside of Union Station and stop at 6 spots along the way. We will walk about one mile between stops—which is good as it will burn off some of their energy along the way!
Teens and tweens still love to play, they just need something a bit more age-appropriate. There are several options to choose from in and around Denver. Adventure Golf and Raceway in nearby Westminster is a top pick. They have several party packages to choose from including miniature golf, go-karts, bumper cars, and a maze and ropes course. Also consider Boom Sports in Parker for a fun-filled obstacle course, indoor rock climbing at Earth Treks in Golden, or indoor skydiving at iFly in Lone Tree.
Also, consider personalizing your teenager’s party around their personal preferences. For example, a mani-pedi party or a video game day with their friends might be their dream come true!
