Every year parents must decide what they are going to do with their child on his/her birthday.
Many parents want to invite several of their children’s friends to attend. Having it at their home has at least two drawbacks. First, there probably is not enough room to accommodate all the children. Secondly, kids like to do something exciting and having a birthday party at home just doesn’t do it. Besides trying the obvious places like Chuck E. Cheese, why not try a roller skate rink. It is a place that is a very healthy alternative and has a good possibly to inspire a child to take up this sport!
If you live in a city, there probably is at least one if not many rinks available.
Contact them and find out their rates, availability, and options they provide for a birthday party. Also, ask some of your friends if they have taken their children to a skating rink. Perhaps they can tell you which of the roller skating rink in your city would provide the best experience.
There are some benefits of having a party at a rink.
First, there are no limits set on the number of children that can attend a skating party. The rink will have one or two rooms which are decorated with fun scenes, and festive colors that are sure to put children in a great mood from the moment they arrive at the time they leave. The rooms are usually equipped with ample seating to accommodate the largest party crowds imaginably.
You can call the roller skating rink several weeks before the birthday to reserve the room. Even when you wait to the very last few days, sometimes they might find an opening, if you can be flexible. After a parent confirms the color scheme of the room, they can pick out balloons, etc. and take them to the rink. Many rinks provide certain amenities for birthday parties. For example, some offer plates with matching cups for all the guests to use and plastic silverware will be placed at each place setting.
Some roller skating rinks have personalized birthday boxes at the front door so guest can put their gifts in them. Many times the rink workers or parents of the child bring the box into the birthday room either at the start of the party or at a planned time. Doing this helps to raise the excitement of the child. When the party is over, the guest knows that there will be hours of skating ahead of them. This makes the party seem more joyful to the parents and kids.
