Ideas for Kids' Birthday Parties in Minnesota

Save

Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but it is also home to numerous venues and activities for your kid's next birthday celebration. Winters are brutally cold throughout much of the state, so choose an indoor venue during the cold months; try an outdoor celebration in summer to take advantage of the warm weather.

Party Places

  • Minnesota offers a wide variety of birthday party venues. Bowling parties can be hosted at Bryant-Lake Bowl in Minneapolis or Recreation Lanes in Rochester. Bryant-Lake Bowl provides an extensive food and beverage menu, including appetizers, entrees and desserts. Orders must be placed at least two weeks in advance, and you must have at least 10 people at the party. Recreation Lanes offers bowling party packages as well as other activities such as miniature golf and batting cages from May through September. Packages include reserved lanes, shoes and food options.

    For a special birthday experience for your daughter and her friends, host a party at the American Girl store in the Mall of America in Minneapolis. Parties include lunch, dinner or tea, goodie bags from the store and a little shopping for each guest.

Rental Ideas

  • For an action-packed outdoor birthday experience, you can rent large, inflatable play equipment for your party guests. The equipment provides a way for children to enjoy themselves and get some physical activity. Birthday party rentals include a variety of inflatable slides and bounce gyms. Jump 4 Play in the Minneapolis area offers moonwalks and other inflatable jump houses and castles for kids to play on during the party. The equipment needs to be set up outside, so you'll need to host the party in your yard or a nearby park with at least 700 square feet of flat space; larger units will require more space. Jump 4 Play will deliver the rental equipment and help set it up, then take it down at the end of the party. Rental periods last anywhere from 2 to 12 hours, and you must fill out a rental agreement and safety checklist before you can use the equipment. Other Minnesota party rental options include Jolly Jumpz in Rochester, Jumpity Jump in Woodbury and State of Fun in Plymouth, all of which offer similar services to Jump 4 Play.
