Whether you have a five year old or a twelve year old, I’ve found the ultimate birthday party destination for BOTH my child, as well as my husband and I!
I love celebrating my child’s birthday – seeing them hold court with their friends, open presents, cut the cake and generally run around like kids should, having the time of their lives. What parent doesn’t like that?! What I don’t like is the hassle set up, running the games, keeping a careful eye on all the kids, and especially the clean up! Wow, can kids destroy a place quickly!
This is why I just LOVED holding our recent party at BOUNCE Singapore. Located just off Orchard Rd at Cathay Cineleisure Orchard (level 9), it was easy for everyone to get to, whether by car, bus or MRT (across from Somerset MRT).
Once inside, we were greeted by our “Party Host”, who made us all feel very welcome and excited. She laughed and joked with the kids while giving them some grip socks, wristbands and a safety briefing. Then they were off! The kids were ushered around the venue, playing games on every trampoline – the Big Bag – where the kids jumped from trampolines into a big airbag, doing flips etc and landing safely, Dodgeball – where the host organized a game and the kids had a ball, Slam Dunk – basketball on trampolines, and Free Jump – a huge area of interconnected trampolines where the kids had a great time. Some kids even tried the Performance trampolines which have a little more spring, but that looked more for the older kids, who were doing some crazy tricks. The kids were then taken into “X-Park” – a ninja-warrior-style obstacle course, where they had fun climbing, jumping, swinging, before taking a zip-line (flying fox) back to the finishing line! To finish up, the birthday boy / girl receives a turn on the “Leap of Faith”. A huge tower where you are put into a harness and helmet and climb up five metres above the ground and launch yourself out to a grab bag, before being gently lowered to the ground – not for me thanks!
While all this was going on, the parents were able to follow the kids around the venue and take photos, or sit back in the café area and have a great coffee (freshly flown Australian coffee beans!). Some even went out to Orchard Rd to do some shopping!
After the hour of activities, all the kids came back to our own private party room, where the staff had all the food and drinks waiting for us. There was a great selection of food to choose from, and the kids (and adults) enjoyed the variety, and the delicious birthday cake! The host took care of everything, kept engaging with the kids and made sure everyone had a great time.
The best part (for me), was seeing how much fun the kids had, how well they were looked after by the host, and not having to worry about the clean up! A fantastic party experience for all.
