Where to host your kids' birthday bashes
While you won’t be able to chope the entire water playground, you can book out one of three rooms, each bearing a different aquatic theme and able to fit 20 kids and 40 adults. Go for the Frills Package ($790-$840): it includes 3 hours of use, finger food, gifts, a ‘party facilitator’ and easy access to the park proper. Be warned, though: the booking comes with a laundry list of regulations. Like no alcohol, no footwear, and ‘no release of helium balloons’.
If your kids are the kind to go nuts in mazes, tunnels and slides, then Amazonia is where you should hold their birthday parties. The huge jungle gym offers six party packages (from about $980 to $1,900) that go from space- to wildlife-themed. There’s even a package that includes a few rounds of laser tag ($1,650). Each package comes with a cake, food, goodie bags and, the kicker, 3 hours of playtime in Amazonia.
Make like Tarzan and swing from the treetops, 4 metres off the ground, when you book a party package ($865, $40 for additional child) with Forest Adventure. You get 90 minutes of exclusive access to the Kids Course, which features 16 crossings and finishes with a zip line, and two instructors to show you the ropes. A cake, beverages and t-shirt cap off the experience. Oh, and by the way: kids need to be taller than 1.1 metres to take part.
