Grand Rapids Indoor Birthday Party Ideas Kids Will Love


Did you know that kids as young as two or three can have a birthday party – indoors – at Karin’s Horse Connection? This one-of-a-kind birthday experience let’s kids do gymnastics moves on a tethered horse. Kids also play games with the horses, care for the horses, and in general have an amazing time!


The best kind of birthday parties may be the ones where kids can run, tumble and run! For an acrobatic good time try Gymco, GR Gymnastics, For the Kidz, Rising Starz or the Horizon Complex. For an event with a little more structure and board breaking, have Flees Martial Arts host!

If all-out running around mania are more up your alley then give Jester’s Court, Sky Zone, Catch Air, RebounderzMVP or Radiant Sportz a call. And then get ready for your kids to hit the sack early that night!

Swimmers can get their kicks in at the Kroc Center or Goldfish Swim School.


The Mud Room is the perfect venue for your creative spirits. And if they’re more like free spirits, Dilly Songs/Picklehead is sure to entertain your young crowd.

Hudsonville Lanes is a nice idea for a party with a sports theme. Or you can go retro-sports with a skating party at Tarry Hall Roller Rink.

Girls who are a little obsessed with pink would love a Princess Ballerina Party.

Now there’s no excuse for not planning your child’s next birthday party!

Give one of these guys a call and let them do all the work. Your house will stay clean (or…not so clean, if you’re looking at my house), kids will have an epic time, and you probably won’t be nearly as exhausted afterward. Using our Rebounderz is a no brainer!

    Party themes really matters, as boys like superhero or sports birthday themes and girl like princess birthday themes. Thanks for sharing the party theme ideas.

    The mud room is going to be my choice since getting the kids to do something new will surely be a high for the group of kids I get around for my 8 year old son. Getting all the kids to try something new keeps them engaged and you just have to worry about the food.

    Looking for a venue for my daughters first birthday. We will be having kids we want a laid back environment where the kids can have fun and the parents and family can have some wine and drinks. Any idea? We will have about 30 people showing up.
