Summer Birthday Party Ideas

Looking to create an unforgettable birthday party for your child this summer, but short on time and green?  Well then let us offer a few summer birthday party ideas for you! 

Your first step to a successful party is corralling everyone so that you can arrive at the destination at the same time. A Platinum Party Bus is just the ticket.  You can stock it with videos, snacks, party favor bags to occupy the little ones on the drive to and from the party. 

To check on date availability and pricing, call Platinum or complete the reservations request form on our website. You’ll be pleased to learn that everyone can buckle-up for safety, since all buses are equipped with seat belts and have PAX-certified drivers. If you’re planning a weekend party, choose a Sunday when buses and sites are less busy. You’re more apt to get the date/time you seek, as well as lesser crowds and possibly some deals!  By the way, also consider choosing a site that has an indoor option. You can never predict NE Ohio weather and no one wants rain to dampen festivities! 

Best Spots in Cleveland for Kids Birthday Parties

Cuts N Curls — Whether you’re looking to provide a haircut for your child or a unique birthday party experience, Cuts N Curls can turn your visit into a piece of cake, birthday cake that is. They offer a fun environment for routine visits, field trips, and parties for children and supervising adults.

The children’s birthday packages give you several options. The Princess Spa Party and The Royal Treatment include facial tattoos, a red carpet fashion show, and a tiara for the birthday girl. If you’re hosting both boys and girls, you may prefer The Build a Stuffed Animal Party. This gets guests to wear superhero capes or spa robes and get to take home their own craft masterpieces. You can add lunch into all of the party packages, but you will need to bring your own cake. Contact Cuts N Curls for pricing, dates and more information.

Make Believe Cleveland –This Parma kid party site offers varying play packages based on age and size of the group. All give your group immediate entry (no waiting in lines) and a cart for your presents, jackets, etc. There are physical challenges in addition to video gaming. Once everyone is tuckered out with play, presents can be opened in a dedicated space.  Some birthday packages provide snacks while others do not.

Café O’Play — Have your child’s birthday party at Northeast Ohio’s premier indoor play café in Stow. If you’re a parent who appreciates healthy food options and physically active play, this may be the place you’ve been seeking. Cafe O’Play is designed for children under 10 and their parents/caregivers. There’s a coffee house area for parents and a huge indoor playground that includes the 2 private party rooms. Parents can choose from 3 packages for their birthday boy or girl. All packages include a trained staff member who’ll be the “Party Hero” managing the logistics and keeping the kids engaged. There’s lots of fun stuff at the Stow location like a climbing structure, a Glow Dance room, a Sports Court, a Gaga Ball Court (a gentler form of dodge ball). Little ones can also experience a unique feature of this venue — an EyePlay interactive floor! It has an almost unlimited amount of games that are projected onto an 8’x 12’ white floor. Difficulty of games change based on the party group’s age.

Summer Birthday Parties for the Adults

Let’s not forget that “big kids” like birthday parties, too! And what’s trending for adult birthday parties this summer is Pickle ball! Courts have been around for some time but, lately, new ones have been popping up everywhere!

Pickle ball can be considered to be a hybrid of tennis, table tennis, and badminton. The court is smaller than most outdoor court games. This means it requires less movement, making it a great choice for all ages and  novice players as well as a unique birthday celebration.

The game has only 5 rules:  serving must be done at the baseline and can’t land in the no volley zone. The ball must stay inbounds on the court, only one bounce per side and the game ends at 11, 15 or 21 points (determined at the start of play). To find courts in a specific area, click here.

Most locations do not offer refreshments or cake, so select a location and book Platinum Party Bus for a round-trip drive there. Our party buses will accommodate up to 28 passengers, have padded seats, an amazing audio system, remote-controlled party lighting, ice and more to create a memorable birthday celebration.
