Hosting a child’s birthday party is a fun and exciting experience. Selecting the right location is important. The location of the children’s birthday party can even help set the theme for the party. Choosing a well suited location can also make or break the birthday party budget. There are many places around the Palm Beach County Florida area that are perfect venues for hosting a child’s birthday party.
CiCi’s Pizza: This all you can eat buffet is a great idea for a child’s birthday parties on a budget.

Lion Country Safari: This fun filled safari animal park is located in Loxahatchee, Florida. It is home to over 800 different animals. Their biggest attraction is a four mile drive though wildlife reserve. They also have a walk through safari that is included with the party packages and general admission fees. The walk through safari area is home to many different birds, reptiles and mammals. They have a miniature golf course, paddle boats, a petting zoo, ferris wheel, a carousel, a flying elephant ride and many other attractions to choose from. There are two great child’s birthday party packages to choose from. The less expensive of the two packages is the deluxe birthday party package. It is $26.00 per person, all children and all adults must pay. The premium party package is $30.00 per person. Both packages include admission to the drive through safari tour, admission to the walk though park, goodie bags for the kids, party plates and some decorations, your choice of three different lunch and ice cream for all guest and special gifts for the birthday child. The premium package also includes free rental of a 15 passenger van for the drive through safari and a ten minute animal presentation for your party. There is a minimum ten guest requirement to book a party and there is also a $50.00 non-refundable deposit that is required when booking the party. I suggest choosing the premium package this will allow most if not all of your party guest to ride together through the safari. Other vans and vehicle are available for rental if necessary. Planning the party in advance and booking a few months in advance is also important. Either package is great deal considering general admission to the park is an average of $24.00 per person. Another great adventure for the children would be to plan a safari camp out or cabin sleepover for older children. There is a KOA campground located next to the park that offers a group rates and special discount rates to the Lion Country Safari. For all the park details and information visit their website.

The list above was chosen from personal experience. My son and his friends have attended many parties and group events at the locations that I have suggested. All the children that attended the outings had a fun and exciting experience.
Although most venues do require a minimum number of guest to receive the party discount packages, do not hesistate to inquire about discounts for smaller groups. You can also check the location’s website for discount coupons that are frequently offered.
