Birthday parties are the most special part of our childhood memories. All children are most precious to their parents and when their birthday arrives, they get into top gear to make their day a special and memorable one for them and their buddies. Birthday party, thus, is the most important event of the year for a child. Due to paucity of space, or not wanting to mess one’s house, or lack of interesting stuff to keep the kids thoroughly and constantly engaged and entertained, we look at other interesting options. Here’s a round up of some interesting kids birthday party venues.
11,000 square feet spread out area, abuzz with frenzy and excitement, arcade games, bumping cars, a 9 D virtual reality movie experience, a soft play zone, Funky Island is an indoor amusement park in itself. They have an exclusive lounge party space, various enticing and economical packages and tie up for food with Basil Tree. Though the adjoining food court also provides an ideal spot to unwind at once the kids are all tired out.
