We all want to offer our kids birthday parties that they’ll remember for years to come - ones that light up their eyes and wow their friends. Many companies have caught on to how many parents could use a helping hand and a fun venue for a kids’ party - and many of them charge an arm and a leg for the privilege.

That’s why today, we’re going over seven great kids’ party packages in Dundee that offer excellent value for money. As a bonus, we’ll share a couple of ideas for party bags to give out to guests for an extra special touch. Happy party planning!


1. Ice Skating Party at the Dundee Ice Arena


Especially for birthdays near the winter holidays, an ice skating party is a lot of fun. The Dundee Ice Arena offers birthday parties for kids over 7 on Saturdays and Sundays during the open skate session. 

The two-hour parties are split between the ice rink and time in your private party room. You can simply enjoy gliding on ice or play some fun party games. A dedicated party planner, food and party bags are also included.


2. A Bouncy Party at Ryze Dundee Indoor Trampoline Park



Have an unforgettable party with some fun trampolining! A birthday party at Ryze Dundee Xtreme Airsport is filled with new experiences, exciting challenges and lots of laughter. 

You’ll start the day with an open bounce session with a chance to try all the different, fun activities available at our indoor trampoline park. These include a range of oversized trampolines, a huge stuntman airbag, foam pits, obstacle courses and much, much more. It’s the best place to go trampolining in Dundee! All our birthday party packages include an hour of free bounce time which you can upgrade to a full hour and a half for just £3 per jumper.

After working up an appetite trying out the trampolines and learning cool tricks, it’s time to kick back in your private party room. If you book one of our popular Pizza Party packages, the partygoers will have delicious pizza to eat while listening to their favourite tunes and having a bit of a boogie. Other snacks and drinks can also be added to your booking.

We offer party packages for all ages, from tots to teens - even adults! We take the stress out of your birthday party planning with a dedicated party host and party room setup and cleanup. To start planning your amazing birthday party, email us or give us a call on 07739 383 561.


3. CSI Party at Dundee Science Centre 


The Dundee Science Centre offers birthday parties with a variety of different themes, but the CSI party is our favourite. This birthday bash will have the kids become detectives for a day to solve the case of the missing party bags. You’ll also get the chance to enjoy the hands-on exhibition at the centre. Food and goody bags are also included.


4. Aqua Park Party with Foxlake Dundee 


For a splashing good time and a bit of adrenaline rush, Foxlake Dundee is sure to please kids big and small. Here, you can take on a floating obstacle course and try your hand at paddleboarding, wakeboarding or a thrilling ringo ride. The party packages are flexible and customisable to make sure you can offer the partygoers exactly what you want. Located at the heart of the city at the waterfront, Foxlake offers a convenient location with pretty views of the city.


5. Airsoft Party with Viper Strike


For kids over 11, this party at Nuke Town is bound to offer an adrenaline-filled, exciting party. Airsoft guns, masks and a hot lunch are all included, so all you need to worry about is bringing yourselves and the cake. During the session, your partygoers will play a range of airsoft games based on popular video games, making this a great option for avid gamers. You’ll also get to battle zombies! 

Parties at Viper Strike are priced at £35 per person, making this the most expensive party on our list. However, for a special treat or a big birthday - maybe your child’s 18th - it’s great and offers good value for money.


6. Climbing Party at Avertical World 


If you want to offer the kids something a little different, why not have an adventurous party at this climbing centre? Climbing parties at Avertical World are available for groups of two to six people per instructor, making this a good option for small, tight-knit groups of friends. Bigger groups can also be accommodated by arrangement. After the climbing session, you can enjoy refreshments at your assigned seating area. Parties are available for kids aged seven and up.


7. Skiing Party at the Ancrum Outdoor Centre 


The Ancrum Outdoor Centre offers a variety of party packages with different activities. These are especially great for older kids and teens who’ve outgrown princess and superhero-themed bashes. You can learn to ski or snowboard on a dry slope, while other activities like climbing and archery are also available. A party at Ancrum gives your partygoers a chance to enjoy fresh air, learn a new skill and engage in a bit of friendly competition.


Fun and easy party bag ideas


1. Kids love slime, so giving some away as a party favour is sure to be a hit! Not to mention that crafting some slime with the birthday boy or girl makes for a fun afternoon. This simple recipe makes a small ball, so size up the recipe based on the number of guests you’re expecting. Get your child to choose the colour and add some sparkles and yummy-smelling essential oils for an extra touch.


2. As for what else to add to your party bags, we think that crafty and creative party favours are great! Think small watercolour sets, some crayons and a small notebook or a mini plant pot and some seeds. These are sure to entertain your guests for weeks, even months after the event.

3. For packaging your goodies, you can jazz up some basic brown paper bags. Some ribbon, stickers and craft scissors are all you need for fun and unique party bags. Write each guests’ name on the bag for an extra special touch.
