Kids’ party venues in north Edmonton and St. Albert

When I was a kid, if you were lucky enough to have a birthday party somewhere other than at home, there was only one option - McDonalds. Today, things have definitely changed. A whole world of fun is out there, even in just north Edmonton and St. Albert alone. These party-perfect places are ready to host a memorable experience for your kids on their special occasions, while making you look like a veteran party planner.

Jumpy Things

The building is broken into three self-contained mini-warehouses, called “jump zones,” where you pick the bouncy castle of your choice (there are 24 options, including a Frozen-themed slide castle, a Turbo Rush bouncer, an all-in-one Sports arena and a massive castle called “The Tiki Island”). There’s enough space in each zone to accommodate up to 20 kids and 20 adults. You have access to your own kitchen, fridge, freezer and washroom, plus you can bring your own food and drinks to enjoy in an area with tables and chairs. Pro tip: Bring along a music player for even more fun.

Fun Park Amusement Center Ltd

13535 156th Street NW, Edmonton, AB T5V 1R9

Imagine a warehouse that is filled with wall-to-wall trampolines. Wait … you don’t have to just imagine it, you can actually experience it, and, better yet, book an epic birthday party there for your kids aged two and up. The younger aged trampoliners will be able to safely play in a section reserved just for them, while the older age groups can jump like crazy or get their game on playing dodge-ball, cage-ball or slam-ball. If you book a party, outside food and drink is welcome, which you can eat at one of their party tables reserved for your group.

Glazing Pot Studio & Gifts

108-31 Fairview Blvd, St. Albert, AB T8N 3M5

St. Albert’s paint-your-own-pottery shop is perfect for your creative kid (aged 12 and under). At Glazing Pots, you can do things such as make a clay creation, decorate a piece of pottery, or create fused glass art. There is a party room at the studio where you can bring in your own food and drinks to enjoy after the kids have completed their projects. If you love the idea of a painting project, but would rather do so at home, check with Glazing Pots for their ‘parties to go’ option.

Cineplex Odeon

14231 137 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5L 5E8

A birthday party at Cineplex Odeon, what they call a “Popcorn Party,” can be a real blockbuster. Kids parties (aged 13 and under) includes admission to a movie with reserved seating, a kid’s combo snack tray (which gives them popcorn, a treat and a drink), a ‘popcorn party host’ and a gift card for the birthday kid, treating them to a free movie for next time. If you’re so inclined, you can even opt for a premium package, which will get you an hour in one of their private party rooms and includes the cost of some food.

Servus Credit Union Place

4
400 Campbell Rd, St. Albert, AB T8N 0R8

Located in St. Albert’s Riel Park area, they have party rooms for rent (for a minimum of one hour). If you purchase wrist bands for your guests, kids can have fun swimming (think water slides, a “lazy river,” warm pools for younger kids, a hot tub, etc.), using the indoor playground (meant for ages 8 and under), ice skating, or at one of the gym courts. The option also exists to have a private gym rental where you can book a dodgeball or floor hockey package. Private rentals are also available for the field house and their ice skating area.

4cats Enterprises Inc

23 Akins Dr, St. Albert, AB T8N 3B3

If you have a little art-lover in the family, a trip to 4 Cats will make for a memorable party. With more than 10 options for different party packages, kids can take part in making splatter art, polymer clay figurines, creating a masterpiece painting, or learning about (and imitating) the art of world famous artists. Kids are encouraged to wear mess-friendly clothes, which in the eyes of most youngsters, is the mark of a truly successful party, if you ask me.

This list is all about cool places you could go to book your kid’s next party. With some help from Party City, your house could be that cool place!

Edmonton Humane Society

13620 163 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5V 0B2

The Edmonton Humane Society may not be the first place you think of when trying to figure out where to plan your next party; however, your pet-loving child will adore an event booked here. Parties last for two-hours and are ideal for kids between the ages of five and 12. A Humane Society party package includes instructor-lead activities, decorations, the use of a private party room, and even includes the plates, forks, napkins and kids’ loot bags, too. As an extra bonus, you can even print off birthday party invites from their website.

Girls who learn from an early age the importance of leadership and self-confidence will be better equipped to grow into women who can go out and conquer the world.

The nerd movement is upon us, and it is awesome. People are standing up and embracing their inner-geek, finally feeling comfortable as they rejoice in all that is nerd worthy.

To some, there are few things as exciting as a room full of empty notebooks. Beautiful notecards and correspondence is also equally alluring.
