Pierce County Birthday Party Locations for Kids & Teens

Pierce County Birthday Party Locations for Kids & Teens

Sharing is caring!

UPDATED: 8/17/2021, I’ve begun updating this post and will try to keep it up to date. Please be sure to check out the location’s website as we began to see more places reopening. Sadly, I’ve seen a few locations have been closed permanently.
And some are not booking parties but still open, so it’d be great for a small group without the “party” option. 

If you are local to the Pierce County area, we actually have quite a few locations for birthday parties, both outdoor and indoor. There’s places for all ages and a few for the younger children only.

Birthday’s are so magical for children, and they only have so many magical ones. I love planning my children’s birthday parties, because it’s a time they get to shine and everyone can have fun! We do a friends party every other year, we usually have it at a location because it’s a little less stressful.

If you're in the Pierce County area in Western Washington #PNW, here's a list of birthday party locations for kids.

BIRTHDAY PARTY LOCATIONS FOR KIDS & TEENS

If you are planning a birthday party and need an idea, I’ve compiled a list of locations with links for more information and for booking. They are organized by cities/towns.

*Perfect for little ones under 5

  • Skateworld – great price if your child likes skating and you do the public session party, they have plenty of the walker for beginner skaters, a few arcade games. Prices start at $150
  • Narrows Bowling Alley – we’ve never attended a party here but this bowling alley is very fun, has a great arcade and lots of lanes. 3 different party packages; Basic $14.99 each child, Economy $9.99, Themed $17.99

That's a good list, though some of the choices puzzle me. I found DKC 2 and DKC 3 were both more fun to play than the original. I did expect FFVI to be in the top 5, that seems kind of weird. My personal favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, so I would have loved to see that at number 1. But with most people I've talked to that played a lot of snes games, they tend to rank Zelda and Chrono Trigger 1 and 2, so I'm surprised that it is so far down on this list.

Thanks for reaching out and welcome to Tacoma! The new place DEFY is a great trampoline place that I'm sure both girls would love. Another great idea would be park at the parking garage at Freighhouse Square either go to lunch and tea at the Olive Branch Cafe and Tea Party(I took my niece here for her Christmas gift last year and she still talks about it ALL the time). Or take the (free) link and get off at the museums/UW stop, walk around the shops, have lunch/dinner at Indochine(it's very good), eat a cupcake at Hello Cupcakes, walk to the Chiyuly glass bridge.
