Considering your favorite Englewood, CO pediatric dentist, Dr. Paddy, is a kid at heart, it should come as no surprise that he has lowdown on the best children’s birthday spots. Whether you want to ring in your kiddo’s special day indoors or outside in the fresh air, you prefer a blow out or an intimate gathering, you’re on a budget or you’re ready to splurge, Kids Mile High Pediatric Dentistry has you covered. We’ve got Denver-area kids birthday party venue ideas to hit all of the items on your wish list. In no particular order, here’s our favorites:
Children’s Museum of Denver – 2121 Children’s Museum Drive, Denver
There are a variety of party packages and price points at the Children’s Museum to suit different budgets and group sizes. For a laidback gathering that works for all ages, let the kids explore the museum before having cake in the private party room or go all out with a Teaching Kitchen party (for kids five and older) where guests create their own ice cream sandwiches, pizza or snacks.
Belleview Park – 5001 S. Inca Drive, Englewood
Celebrating a birthday in late spring or summer? Belleview Park is an awesome place to have an affordable outdoor kids party in Englewood, CO. Set up a picnic and let the little ones enjoy the playground equipment. Then, ride the miniature train. Top off the day with a stop at the Belleview Children’s Farm to pet the animals, learn some cool facts and see farm life in action. For groups larger than 10 people, you’ll have to make reservations a few days in advance to visit the farm.
Denver Firefighters Museum – 1326 Tremont Place, Denver
Let your child be the hero for the day with a birthday party at the Denver Firefighters Museum. The first hour of the event is spent celebrating at the party tables and the second hour involves a visit to the Education Center where the birthday boy or girl gets to be the Fire Chief. Partygoers can play on the red fire truck, dress up in firefighter gear and practice sliding down the firefighters’ pole. You’ll need to bring your own food and decorations, however, you can purchase goody bags for guests.
Adams Mystery Playhouse – 2406 Federal Boulevard, Denver
What kid doesn’t love to solve mysteries? The Adams Mystery Playhouse isn’t just a cool old mansion children can explore, it’s also a unique birthday party venue for kids in Denver. Little ones can join in the interactive mystery theater show performed by professional actors and help solve a crime. The Saturday afternoon events are public so there may be more than one birthday party going on, however, we think that probably adds to the fun. At the end of the show, there is time for cake and presents.
Denver Botanic Gardens – 1007 York Street, Denver
The Denver Botanic Gardens is a great outdoor birthday party spot for children and offers sustainable birthday celebrations for kids up to 14-years-old. Guests can explore the gardens and learn about plants and the natural world. You bring your child’s favorite food and the Gardens will take care of the rest while ensuring the party is eco-friendly!
AMF Belleview Lanes – 4900 S. Federal Boulevard, Englewood
You can’t go wrong with a good old fashioned bowling party. AMF Belleview Lanes offers different customizable party packages. They even have lightweight balls and bumpers for younger children. A major perk? They’ll take care of the food.
The Denver Puppet Theater – 3156 West 38th Avenue, Denver
The Denver Puppet Theater offers two different birthday party packages for children ages five and older. Either take in one of their amazing marionette shows in reserved seating or have the whole theater to yourself. You can bring snacks and cake to serve after the event in a private room. Each guest gets to make their own puppet to take home.
Epic Escape Game – 37 W. Floyd Avenue, Englewood
This option is probably best for older kids or teenagers but it would make for a one-of-a-kind birthday party. The venue offers four different escape rooms of varying difficulties. Partygoers are locked in a room and they have 60 minutes to find clues and solve puzzles to escape the space before time is up. Depending on your budget and needs, you can reserve a single room, all of the rooms or the entire mansion for your party.
