Birthday party ideas and venues abound for the adolescent age group. Families can host an at-home murder-mystery party, spend a night at the movies, have a party at a paintball center, attend a concert or have a video game competition. Other party venues include salons, indoor water parks and amusement parks. Does this Spark an idea?
Teens can feel all grown up and enjoy a pampering birthday party at a local salon or spa, with all-day treatments, such as aromatherapy massages, mini facials, manicures, pedicures, body wraps and makeup applications. Alternatively, host a spa birthday party at home. The birthday host can arrange for a day with mobile spa or salon professionals who come to the home to provide a multitude of facial, body and cosmetic treatments. For a less expensive birthday option, the birthday host can arrange a room with comfortable seating, hand and foot baths and a makeup table so that the teens can take turns giving each other manicures, pedicures and makeovers. For party favors, present each guest with a small basket filled with aromatherapy candles and lotions, bath beads and bubble bath. Teen girls who are exploring makeup for the first time will enjoy being pampered at a spa party.
Amusement Park Party
For a birthday party full of fun and excitement, many amusement and theme parks offer birthday party packages for small and large groups, with a private party area and all-day admission to the park. A group of thrill-seeking teens can spend the day braving every daredevil ride in the park, while the less adventurous group could enjoy a day recapturing their younger years by riding the kid’s rides all day long. Teens can indulge in a pizza, hamburgers or nachos for lunch, available at many amusement parks, and then settle their stomachs playing some carnival-type games before another round of thrill or kids’ rides. Active teens will enjoy this high-intensity celebration.
Indoor Water Park
For winter birthday parties, teens can recapture a little bit of summertime fun by hosting a party at a hotel’s indoor water park and select a few friends to stay the night in one of the hotel’s guest rooms. Many of the water parks offer birthday party packages that include a private party room, a pizza lunch and beverages and a birthday cake. Equipment and activities at indoor water parks include wave pools, lazy rivers, daring and sedate water slides, interactive play structures, flow riders and whirlpools. For some dry-land fun, teens can spend an hour or two in the arcade, on site at many indoor water parks. For overnight accommodations, arrange for standard connecting rooms, or go all out and reserve a luxury suite. Sleepovers are synonymous with teenagers, and this luxurious sleepover will help celebrate a teen’s birthday.
