Hi,

Can anyone recommend fun, sanitary birthday party venues for a 7-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy, respectively?

Looking for venues in Northern Bergen County...Demarest, Closter, Tenafly, Paramus, etc.


I'd love to hear your good AND bad reviews so I know which places to avoid.

I would love to hear about good bounce house/active places as well as good ice skating arenas, but I am open to all ideas.

Thanks!

i did my daughters 1 year birthday at my mother in laws low income living facility. it worked out great and didnt cost me a penny. for a fee she can say you are her son/daughter and you can use it also. it was very sanitary.

Thank you both. I should have mentioned that I wanted a structured play venue (if that makes sense), meaning a place where kids can have fun, not just a room I can rent out. This explains the "sanitary" reference, LOL, for any of you who have never had the misfortune of visiting a Chuck E. Cheese.

Velocity 17, Monster Mini Golf, Bounce U, (all these in Paramus). Another choice would be Bowling.

Oh yeah, I've had that misfortune.

There is a place in Waldwick, Unbelieva-Bills.

The Y in Wyckoff really does cute birthday parties too by the way. You could try Ridgewood's Y or whatever one is near you.

I think that one closed. Another one in Montclair and they may also do something tied in with velocity-17.

I was going to suggest space odyssey too.

I think OP's kids are a little too young for v-17 that place is very pricey and the kids are not old enough to drive the cars.

NJ children's museum is FOUL, definitely not sanitary.

We went to a party at the Classic Athletic Club in Lyndhurst the other day the kids had a blast.
