Planning a birthday party for a teen is no easy task; they are too young to enjoy a night on the town, but too old to have their party at a venue designed for children. Thankfully, San Antonio presents many options that can ensure your teen has a memorable birthday party.
Splashtown San Antonio
Located three miles from downtown San Antonio, Splashtown waterpark (splashtownsa.com) is the perfect way to experience thrills while keeping cool. The park has more than 50 rides and attractions, including twisting, plummeting waterslides and a large wave pool. Guests can even enjoy a "dive-in" movie while at the park. Splashtown offers several birthday packages, which include guests' admission, pizza or hot dogs and a private birthday area. Thrill seeking teens will enjoy the park's numerous rides, and with free life jackets and professionally trained lifeguards on hand, parents can rest easy during the party.
Party guests will have a blast at University Bowl (ubbowl.com), which has thirty-two lanes of bowling, automatic scoring and automatic bumpers that can be raised or lowered based on the bowler's ability. This venue also boasts Your Lane Your Way, a unique feature that allows players to choose from 13 different themes for their lane. The themes range from Happy Birthday and Sport to Disco and Vintage. University Bowl also offers a video game arcade and a snack bar.
The Rollercade (therollercade.com) offers roller skating party packages for both private birthday parties and parties during a public session. Both packages have a flat rate that includes birthday party invitations, skate rental, skate time and a snack. The private party package also boasts a party host, games and entertainment and a special song for the birthday celebrant. For additional fees, you can also customize your party and add glow sticks, additional balloons, hot dogs or pizza, party bags or roller blades.
The Incredible Pizza Company
The Incredible Pizza Company (incrediblepizza.com) has something for everyone, from go-karts and bumper cars to a Route 66-themed mini-golf course. There are also more than 100 interactive video games to enjoy. True to its name, the venue boasts delicious pizza options and other good eats. You can purchase a birthday party package, which includes a private party room, an unlimited buffet and drink, a party hostess and tickets for the attractions.
