Best Kids Birthday Party Places

Some of my best memories from my school years are from the birthday parties of my best friends. My parents also knew how to throw some of the best birthday parties for kids, so it’s no surprise that I’m always planning ahead and looking for the best birthday party places near me. Here’s a list of some of the best birthday party venues, best Indianapolis cake decorators, best Indy children’s entertainers and more. Cheers, and happy birthday!

Incrediplex Indoor Family Entertainment Center

A huge obstacle climber, inflatable play areas, private party rooms, tons of arcade games, laser tag, bowling, a theater screening room and sports fields (soccer, volleyball, flag football, Frisbee, basketball and lacrosse) all make Incrediplex a fantastic place to play and celebrate many occasions, especially birthday parties! School aged children, pre-teens and even teen birthday parties are a blast at Incrediplex on Indianapolis’ east side in the Lawrence area.
