Plan Birthday Parties Your Kids Will Remember


Have you ever been to a lame birthday party? Or, even worse, have you ever had a bad birthday party? I am not talking about being upset because you are turning a year older or being unhappy that someone special didn’t show up. I am talking about having a Sesame Street themed party when you are thirteen years old. Or maybe you had a basketball themed party during football season. Or maybe your parents still think you like the first Hanson album. I don’t know how many times I told them, I never really liked that album. I was just holding it for a friend… Anyway, the point is birthdays are supposed to be special. It is supposed to be a fun day for you and your friends to do fun things that you wouldn’t normally get to do. Maybe you like to go to fancy dinners. Maybe you want to go to a ball game. Whatever it is, make sure it will be fun and special.

It Better Be Fun

If birthdays serve one purpose, it is to enable us to do things we wouldn’t normally get to do. When I was very young, it was to pretend to be a Power Ranger. As I grew older, I became more interested in more daring pursuits. No longer was I entranced by make-believe. I needed to feel a rush of excitement. I wanted to feel wind in my face. I wanted to do something daring! I've always wanted go kart racing birthday parties in South Jersey, and not the slow and raggedy little things at the family fun centers. I wanted the real deal, the big-kid go karts, the ones that go fast!

Now, I wish I could say that a couple years later my interests shifted and I moved on to other interests, and while they did, the desire to cruise in high-quality go karts remained. Luckily, these days I am old enough to plan my own birthday parties. In fact, I am almost to the age where friends are planning their children’s parties, so I plan on making sure none of them make the same decisions that my mother did by planning a boring party. Remember, if you want the party to be fun, the most important thing is that the primary activity is exciting. 

The More Activities the Better!

As any of you who have spent much time with men know, we get easily bored. I wish I could say it only pertained to us as children, but that would be a bold face lie. If anything, we become more set in our ways. With the exceptions of drinking, eating, and playing video games, we are sure to eventually get bored of any activity, not matter how exciting. In other words Moms, unfortunately it is no longer enough to simply take us go kart racing for bithday parties in South Jersey. There needs to be some other activities in between to keep us distracted. You could provide other small board games or card games. Perhaps you can organize a game of hide and go seek for all of the current non-racers. If you want to make it easy on yourself, simply find a place like Speed Raceway where they provide tons other games in their awesome arcade. That way, all you have to do is distribute the quarters in order to give you a moments rest.

Delicious Food Makes All the Difference

First, I want to apologize to my mom because it may seem like I am jumping all over you about this years-old birthday party fiasco. Don’t worry Mom! All of that is in the past. Who can even remember that discount pizza you bought so many years ago? (Actually I can, and so will your son, so please don’t make the same mistake my mom did.) Even children can tell the difference between good and bad food. So if you are going to pick up something easy, like pizza, make sure it’s from the good pizza place in town. In the mind and heart of a child, there is a huge difference! The quality and presentation of your food is very important, so make sure you either make something quite delicious at home, or you can have food catered from the place of your choosing. However you choose to proceed, Speed Raceway will accommodate you.

You Don’t Have to Break the Bank to Have a Good Time

Finally, it is quite obvious that a great party is easy to throw when you have unlimited funds, but if you are like me or like my mother many years ago, that simply isn’t an option. Maybe you have a bunch of kids and are always throwing parties. Maybe you simply have too many other expenses. Either way, you need to find a way to make this party affordable. Speed Raceway is a great option that offers incredible group discounts for birthday parties in South Jersey. After that, it is just up to you to figure out how many people are going to join and how many race they will want to do.


Birthday parties are supposed to be special. Let Speed Raceway help you creat the perfect party. Parents, take it from me: your son wants to have his next birthday party racing go karts. There simply isn’t a more fun and exciting activity that is both affordable and available no matter the weather outside. It may have seemed like a lot of work at first, but after you experience the thrill of not having to clean up your house after a bunch of sugar-crazed little monsters, I am certain it will become a birthday mainstay in your family.

You have mentioned some really effective points. I would love to add a point in this. One can hire birthday games for a kid birthday party. Kids love games a lot. Specially the bouncy castles. There are many more games available which can give a real fun time to kids. Rodeo bull, mini golf and other Inflatable hire are available on internet.

Amazing post! I like the suggestions mentioned above for kids birthday party activities. Birthday parties put a major milestone in kid’s life where all the kids get together, enjoy the food, game and each other’s company. Themed birthday parties can be a nice to make the party more happening and entertaining. Parents can also hire some professionals to arrange all the activities. Along with delicious food and surprises, you can also plan to perform some games and fun-loving activities to keep the kids engage and entertain.
