Best Locations in DFW for Birthday Parties

20-Plus Ideas for Unique Events


11. Fort Worth Zoo

The Fort Worth Zoo is one of the wildest places to celebrate your child's birthday. A party at the FW Zoo includes a Wild Wonders animal presentation, all-day admission to Zoo for 30 participants, use of an Education Center room for two hours and wildlife games/activities that you can facilitate with your guest, a Zoo souvenir for each child participant and a special Fort Worth Zoo gift for the birthday child. Maximum group size is 30 participants and may be any combination of children and adults.

Fort Worth Zoo, 1989 Colonial Pkwy, Fort Worth, TX 76110. 817-759-7200

12. Frontiers of Flight Museum

Angela Patterson
I recently attended a birthday party for a 4-year-old here and it was the perfect place for a party. It had lots of room so kids could run around and play before time for cake. Slide out the end of a mini jumbo jet, jump inside an indoor bounce house, climb the (play) air traffic control tower, and take a tour through an actual 737. Parties are set for 2 hours each and you can bring your own cake.


Frontiers of Flight Museum, 6911 Lemmon Ave. - Southeast side of Dallas Love Field on Lemmon Ave, Dallas, TX. (Exit Lemmon at University). 214-350-1651.

13. Going Bonkers

It's a large indoor playground where kids can climb through the largest, tallest soft-play areas in DFW. Ride the zip line, climb, slide, bounce and just go bonkers. Separate toddler area for 3 and under. Older kids can score points and prizes in the arcade. I personally like skee ball. The restaurant area offers hamburgers, pizza, sandwiches, cookies, mini tacos, salads, fresh fruit and funnel cakes. Party rooms are available for birthday parties. It even has a quiet adults-only room with free WiFi.

Location: 2565 MacArthur Blvd., Lewisville, Texas 75057. 972-315-9000

14. Main Event

How about a game of adrenaline-pumping laser tag or indoor climbing in Texas' only indoor gravity ropes course? Your kids can go nuts with video games, bowling and laser tag and more. Party Hosts serve up (and clean up) refreshments in a Private Party Room. You sit back and enjoy the party of the year. It doesn't get much easier or much more fun than this. Parties are geared specifically to younger children, tweens/teens and adults. Everyone can have a fun birthday at Main Event.
