Have a kid that likes to get in on the action, rather than jockey the sidelines? Invite your star and their biggest cheerleaders to do everything from rock climbing to circus acrobatics to indoor skydiving. Flip through our album for all the places you can burn big energy — and then come home to a calm (and clean) house.

For Soccer: Players Indoor Sports Center

Players Indoor Sports Center tailors its birthday party packages to different age groups so that little ones are not overwhelmed and big kids are not bored. The “Wee Wildman” package for 3-6-year-old kids sticks to tried-and-true games like kickball and T-ball. Big kids can play more competitive games like dodge ball or floor hockey. We want to try Bubbleball (age 9+) – a game where players wear an inflatable ball and roll and bounce into each other.
