Indoor Playground or at Home, Which is Better for Kids Birthday Bash?

The question of where to hold a kids birthday bash can make the difference between a dull and an awesome party. The venue of a bash will place restrictions on what activities you can do and how many guests you can invite.

Birthday bash at home

The pros of holding the bash at home are;

  • There are no costs for venue
  • No Transportation of party goods and decor needed
  • Ideal if the guest list is not long

The biggest cons for holding a birthday bash at home are;

  • There is restriction of space. The average home will likely not have the space for seating all the guests and playful kids,
  • House Clean-up before AND after the party is needed,
  • Need to do LOTS of decorating if want a FUN themed atmosphere,
  • Limited activities. The games that can be played at home are limited as the equipment and playing items are not many,
  • Adults usually expect alcohol at a home party, increasing expense and changing the quality of the kid’s birthday party experience,
  • There is the danger of antagonizing the neighbors as the kids play around.

Birthday at an Indoor playground

Indoor playgrounds like Scooter Jungle are a better alternative for birthday bashes as they offer more space and a wider range of activities for both adult and children guests. The advantages of a birthday bash at an indoor playground are;

  • There is ample space for comfortable seating during food and drinks for all invited guests
  • More fun and games indoor playgrounds have a wide variety of game equipment like inflatables, balls, swings etc,
  • More fun for the parent as the birthday venue handles everything leaving the parent to enjoy along with the other guests,
  • The indoor playground has qualified staff to supervise the kids during play time making it safer and interactive,
  • There are no worries for cleaning up after. You get in, enjoy and leave others to clean up which is a big relief,
  • Alcohol free zone…get’s rid of the hassle of deciding if you offer liquor at your child’s party,
  • There are no worries about the neighbors calling the authorities in protest to noisy on goings. The bash can get as fun and noisy as the kids want it.

Holding a kid’s birthday bash at an indoor playground takes most of the work from the parent’s hands and is handled by people who do it as a profession ensuring a better experience. Some will get worried that holding a bash at an indoor playground is expensive.

Look for money saving packages and deals when booking to save funds on your party. Cutting out unnecessary extras and handling some of the work is a way to get a good discount. Some venues will allow you to bring some food and drinks further cutting the costs and giving a nice variety to your food offering. At the end of the day, with a good arrangement , you are sure of loads of fun for kids and adults.

Achieving Your Wishes, Hopes & Dreams With Scooter’s Jungle

Recent economic events, and subsequent uncertainty in future employment and financial independence are primary factors leading many individuals to explore franchising as a career alternative, a way to control one’s own destiny, and a vehicle to achieve long-term wishes, hopes and dreams.

As there are many different franchise opportunities to explore, and if you’ve actually begun exploring franchise opportunities, you’ve most likely had just enough time to gather preliminary information with the intent of doing some additional research online. Quite frankly, that is very typical. Unfortunately, as you’ve probably realized, it’s not enough, as exploring your options requires significant assimilation of information followed by careful consideration. Many people faced with this seemingly overwhelming task often cast aside their objectives or procrastinate to the point of never following through.

Hottest Sectors for Franchising

Entrepreneur magazine recently covered the “hottest sectors for franchising.” Included on their list is a range of categories from fitness to hotels and motels, but most interesting to us is the “miscellaneous children’s businesses” sector, in which Scooter’s Jungle is listed.

“Year after year, franchises based around kids perform well while those in other industries struggle. The reason? In lean times consumers tend to cut down on spending for themselves rather than for their dependents” as stated by Entrepreneur Magazine.
