There’s no excitement in the world quite like the anticipation a child feels for his birthday. If your kids are anything like mine, the day after their birthday, they are already asking how much longer it is until the next time we celebrate with cake and gifts. We’ve always enjoyed celebrating with our kids on their special day, and a couple years ago we made the transition from family gatherings at home, to hosting a larger party with friends at a fun destination.
As my son’s sixth birthday approached this year, we were thrilled to learn that our most favorite place – Silverlake the Family Place – would be able to host parties in their brand new Active Entertainment Center.
We joined Silverlake around the time our son was born, because we knew we wanted a place that would be fun for our entire family, and allow us the opportunity to be active together. While most features and activities are designed for members (and if you live in Northern Kentucky, I highly recommend looking into a membership!), nonmembers are able to sign up for sports, gymnastics, camps, and even book the most exciting birthday party ever.
Here’s why you should have your next birthday party at Silverlake the Family Place:
Silverlake has long been a great birthday party location, but with its new 55,000 Sq. Ft. Active Entertainment Center, there really is nothing else like it in the Tristate.
They offer party options for 1-year-olds all the way up to 16-year-olds, and there really is something for everyone. The absolute best part of hosting a birthday party at Silverlake is the variety of entertainment to choose from. No matter what your child likes to do, they have it. Choose from trampoline jumping, wall climbing, bowling, swimming, a ropes course, or perhaps a combination, which is what we went with! Our active 6-year-old chose to spend time in both the Clip n’ Climb area and the Trampoline Park, and it worked out perfectly.
In addition to the variety of fun, every aspect of hosting a party with Silverlake was effortless. As a parent, this may be my favorite part of having a party at a location other than my own home. But, if you’ve ever done this before, you know it does not always go so smoothly. However, from the moment we wanted to book a party, to the follow up beforehand to confirm everything, to how prepared and excited they were when we arrived on party day – everything was handled with professionalism, safety, and fun!
Parties and pricing vary based on which activities you choose and how many children attend, but most situations include activities for 10 boys and girls, pizza, drinks, cupcakes, and other little surprises like a birthday shirt for the guest of honor. If you want to be hands-off with the party, you literally do not have to do a thing. Our Party Pro, who was with our group the entire time, did a wonderful job engaging the kids, keeping an eye out for them, wrangling them up when it was time to go on to the next thing, and even helped our son with his gifts! Especially compared to other experiences, I was incredibly impressed with this aspect of a Silverlake party.
Whether you live in Northern Kentucky, or really anywhere in the Tristate, Silverlake the Family Place should definitely be a consideration for your next birthday party celebration. Pricing is comparable to other similar destinations, but honestly, there is no comparison to what is offered at this massive entertainment center. And if you would like to consider a membership, then there’s even more opportunity for endless memories at this ultimate place for family fun in the Cincinnati area.
