Planning birthday parties for kids is always a challenge. Invite lists! Food! Loot bags! Oh and where to host? Summer parties, which seem easy in theory – think beach, pool, picnic, backyard – are still at the mercy of the elements – from too hot to too wet. Sometimes, it’s best to head inside and enjoy the cool. For a guaranteed party hit, book a party in the air-conditioned comfort of The World of Kidtropolis. Here’s why!
Five reasons to book a summer birthday party at Kidtropolis
The kids will love it!
The kids will love discovering Vancouver’s only interactive model city that lets kids be whatever they want to be – whether it’s a veterinarian, fire fighter, dentist, pilot or restauranteur. Pretend play is the name of the game here, and there are 18,000 sq feet of mini businesses, theatres and roam-able area for the kids!
Stress-free party planning
More importantly, a birthday at The World of Kidtropolis is stress-free for you. They can take care of the catering, loot bags, decor and even provide all the party supplies .
Special weekday pricing
One advantage to summer parties is you can book them during the week, and Kidtropolis is offering special weekday pricing on birthday parties all summer from June to August!
Invite a princess or superhero to the party
Invite a special character, princess or superhero to make an appearance and spend some quality time with the birthday guest of honour, or add face painting or balloon twisting for some extra wow.
Keep the party going at no charge
The party room is booked for two-hours but the children can keep playing in the Kidtropolis city for as long as they want after the party finishes at no additional charge.
Did we mention that it’s nice and cool inside: No mosquitos, no picnic ants, no heatstroke and no sun burn! AC FTW!
PS: Did you know that, you can book out the entire space for an after-hours party? As a summer bonus, add an extra 1/2 hour ($75 value) to your party for free.
