As a kid, there was nothing better than getting together with all of your friends for your birthday party. Between the cake, presents, and party favors, it was always exciting to celebrate your big day.
So why not recreate that birthday magic as an adult? No matter how old you’re turning, you deserve to have a memorable celebration. Check out these six incredibly fun birthday ideas to bring out your inner child.
This glow-in-the-dark game is a classic kid’s birthday party activity, but it’s a blast for adults too. To play, you’ll need to gather your closest friends at a local laser tag venue and then split up into two teams. Your mission is to attack the opposing team’s base while also defending your team’s HQ. You can find laser tag at family fun centers or at some bowling alleys. You don’t have to bring any of your own equipment, other than comfortable shoes and a winning attitude!
If you have an adventurous side, tackling a ropes course at a local adventure park is the perfect way to celebrate your birthday. There are plenty of gravity-defying activities to try, including tight ropes, rock walls, and ziplines. Some adventure parks even offer birthday party packages, so all you have to do is invite your guests and show up!
Throw it back to simpler times and head to your local roller rink for your big day. Roller skating is an ideal birthday party activity, combining physical activity and family-friendly fun. Plus, it’s easy for friends to drop by, wish you happy birthday, go for a quick skate, and head out on their way – perfect if you’re looking to host a more casual affair.
Theme park or water park
If your birthday falls during the summer months, take advantage of the sunshine and hot weather by spending your big day at a theme park or water park. With roller coasters, carnival games, and junk food, you’ll make long-lasting memories with your loved ones while getting your adrenaline pumping.
Arts and crafts
Unleash your creativity by throwing an artsy birthday bash. If you’re adhering to a strict budget, you can purchase the art supplies at a local craft store and invite guests over to your home. If you have more money to spend, reserve a space at a nearby studio. In recent years, “Paint and Sip” classes have become a popular way to celebrate special occasions.
Make a splash and show off your swimming skills with a birthday pool party. Before the big day, stock up on snacks, drinks, and pool-friendly games. On the day of the event, put your resident grill master in charge of the BBQ to cook up hot dogs and burgers for your hungry guests.
No matter how you choose to celebrate your special day, all that matters is that you’re surrounded by the people that you love. Whether it’s at a roller rink, theme park, or your own backyard, it’s all about the happy memories you make with your closest friends and family.
