Inside: Teen Birthday Party Places + Ideas.

Just because they’ve hit those double digits doesn’t mean they don’t want to celebrate their birthday with their friends. Of course, the venue needs to be exciting and cool.

When it comes to teen birthday party places, there are quite a few options that make for a fun and different venue to host a birthday party. Instead of a crowded house party or a sleepover, try an activity at an outdoor spot that gets tweens and teens active and offers something off the beaten path.

Party Ideas for Young Adults

Teen Birthday Party Places

Ice Skating Rink

An ice skating rink is a chill place for tweens and teens to enjoy a birthday any time of the year. Indoor rinks are open year-round and are a nice change of pace during the warm weather months.

Rent a Movie Theater

A crowded movie is probably not the best spot for a tween or teen party, but some theaters have been offering party rentals. Teens can catch the latest flick with a theater all to themselves, giving enough room to spread out. If you’re not comfortable with an indoor movie, have an outdoor movie or gaming party instead of in your backyard with a screen and a projector.

Party Places

Night at the Museum

There is something inherently exciting about being inside a museum when it is closed. Many large and small museums offer after-hours-themed events. Attending one of these as a birthday excursion is pretty cool. Some are for adults only, but there are museums with after-hours events for all ages.

Cool Places for Teenage Birthday Parties

 Escape Room

Not going to lie, I’m kind of obsessed with Escape Rooms. To put it simply, you and a maximum of 7 other people walk into a room and 60 minutes to figure out how to get out following clues. It usually requires players to find clues, find keys and find codes that all unlock locks which helps you get out of the room. In truth, there is always an emergency exit for people who need it but it’s a thrilling and fun experience to do with friends.

Indoor Go Cart Racing

Go carts have come a long, long way in the last decade. You can now drive really powerful, really fast go-carts safely inside of go-cart facilities. Usually, they have carts for a variety of ages/heights, so check the website to ensure your guests can participate.  The carts that go excessively fast will usually require that the rider be at least 15 years old with a valid driver’s license. (This is a great party places for 17-year-olds and up)

Teenage Birthday Parties


The great thing about a paintball party is that it’s usually outside. Participants can take their video-game skills and put them to use with actual moving targets. Beginner packages are usually an option for teens new to paintball.

Birthday Places for Teens

Skating Rink Party

This is one of the teen birthday party places you’ll want to run by your kid but many teens still love the skating rink because it’s very social.

Amusement Park

Many amusement parks like Six Flags offer various birthday party packages that include admission to certain sections of the park along with food vouchers and parking discounts.

A tween or teen birthday party doesn’t have to be a big, extravagant event. Friend bases typically shrink during the double-digit years, and kids want to spend their birthday with their close friends doing something fun. With a smaller guest list, you can explore unique venues you wouldn’t normally think of to host a birthday party. Since teens and tweens are on screens a lot, an outdoor spot like the beach or horseback riding gets everyone outside and active. Always build in a rain date for outside parties if possible.

Birthday Places for Teens

Visit the Beach

If your tween or teen has a summer birthday, a beach party is a great idea. When picking a date for the beach bash, remember to have a rain date and include it on the invitation. Celebrating a birthday at the beach gives kids lots of room to spread out and enjoy what they like whether it’s swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, volleyball, or Kan Jam. For teens who prefer something tamer, they can settle in on their towel to savor the sunshine. Pack an array of sandwiches and other munchies along with plenty of water.

Fun Places to go for a Teenage Birthday Party

Pro or College Sporting Event

Depending on what sport or team your teen is into, taking his/her crew of close friends to see a team that they love can be a great social outing around something that interests them. Consider adding money to your budget for kids to get food and snacks while at the game.

Neighborhood Pool Party

Hosting a party at your local neighborhood pool can be great because if you live in the neighborhood you most likely use it for free or for a nominal fee.

Fun Places to go for a Teenage Birthday Party

Theme Park or Water Park Party

If you live in a town with a big or small theme park, consider hosting a party there for the day.  Due to ticket prices, you may not be able to take your kids whole baseball team, but you may be able to make a special day with a few good friends.
