Custom Birthday Parties for Ages 1-10
Our award-winning, high-energy parties are truly spectacular events, and we make your child the star of the show! Your guests will have a blast and your child will receive All-Star treatment in our amazing Interactive Gym™.
How it works
Start by picking one of our fantastic party themes.
We'll ask you some questions about the party star's interests and personality, and the guests.
Then we'll fully customize the party activities just for you, and pre-program it into our patented Interactive Arena software.
Show up and enjoy the spectacular event! Your child will be the star, and your guests will have a blast!
Themes range from the Olympics, Superhero, Fun and Games for younger children to Zumba Dance
Parties at Great Play take place in our patented Interactive Arena, which make them unlike any other kids' activity. Half a dozen computers control eight projectors, a directional sound system, and over a dozen sensing systems to bring the sparkling clean 3000 sq. ft. space to life.
During our regular sports skill and motor skill classes, the Arena technology is used to turn practicing newly learned skills into play. For parties, we drop the instruction, and include just the playing parts!
Younger parties unfold as stories, with activities based on the interests of the birthday star. For instance, we don't just climb on an obstacle course at Great Play… the projectors transport us to an imaginary play area under the sea where we swim like fish through it, or a magic castle with knights and princesses that we explore. Then the cameras capture the action during freeze dance and show the delighted dancers up on the big screen. And Buddy, our beloved animated mascot, appears (and disappears) on the screens for a running, jumping, skipping, hopping game of hide-and-seek!
For older parties, Players enter the Arena as though they are entering a stadium as the starting lineup in an all star game! The lights come down, music comes up, the spotlights start to shine, and the camera starts rolling showing each Player's entrance up on the giant scoreboard. The Players high five each other on their way into the Arena and then the (animated) crowd goes wild when the MVP of the event finally enters! And that's just to start things up!
Depending on the interests of the party star, there are a wide variety of activities built into each party, including our amazing interactive walls, where the kids can break virtual bottles, kick field goals with an interactive referee, hit in a home run derby, and much more.
When you book a Great Play party, we will ask you a series of questions that will allow us to customize the party for your child, including:
- Interests of the party star (specific activities or sports, passions, etc.)
- Comfort with being the center of attention
- Interest in having (or avoiding) competition
- Age and gender of attendees, etc.
- We also get a digital photo of the birthday star from you for the welcome message on our 100 sq ft scoreboards!
Then we go to work creating a fully custom party and we pre-program it into our patented Interactive Arena software. Every party is unique to the birthday child’s interests and personality.
One thing they all have in common is that they are action-packed, and filled with fun, unique, high-energy activities. We never like to see a child get bored, even for a minute! So one of our hallmarks is to stuff the party so full of games, that we're onto the next one before the fun of the last one has worn off!
