January 16th, 2018

Each year, you put a lot of time and effort into planning your child’s birthday. From theme and cake to cleaning the house ahead of the big day, your child’s birthday party is a lot of work. This should be the year that you shake things up. You can decide to have the birthday party somewhere other than at home and let someone else do the bulk of the work. Here are 8 outside-the-box birthday party ideas in South Jersey.


There are plenty of local bowling alleys where your child and friends can celebrate and enjoy a few games of bowling. Most bowling alleys will offer a special party room and allow you to bring in a cake.

Movie Theater

If you do not need a lot of private space for your child’s birthday, a movie theater is a great place for a party. You can ask parents to drop off their kids and treat them to the latest children’s movie along with coke and popcorn.

Speed Raceway

This is the most exciting option because the birthday boy or girl gets to zoom around the indoor racetrack on electric go-karts. They offer special packages for birthday parties and a dedicated party room. Your child and their friends will love racing each other around the track.

Roller Skating

With so many skating rinks in the area, there is sure to be one open to planning your child’s next birthday party. In many cases, they can provide a cake, snacks and dedicated area.

Sporting Event

You could take a small group of children to a sporting event in Philadelphia. It is great chance to have an exciting birthday. You will need to plan to do cake and gifts before leaving for the game.

Independence National Historical Park

Gather up your child and group of friends to head over the Walt Whitman bridge for an afternoon of American history. The park covers more than 20 blocks with plenty of restaurants in the area for a birthday lunch.

Indoor Fun Park

In recent years, many indoor play areas have popped up in the South Jersey area. Many of these places are equipped for birthday parties of any size.

Day At The Shore

In just a couple of hours, you can take a small group of children for a birthday party at the shore. Ocean City and Wildwood offer wonderful boardwalks with plenty to do.

Out of all of these choices, go-kart racing offers the most thrilling option. At Speed Raceway, we are ready to help you plan your child’s next birthday. We offer several packages to fit your needs and a dedicated party room.
