Guide to Birthdays in Flagstaff

As winter approaches I always start thinking about birthday parties, since my boys were born in November and December! We have had a lot of birthday parties in Flagstaff and I am always looking for new ideas. Here is a list of a few cold weather parties locations and a few warm weather ideas too (since you never know with the weather here in Northern Arizona!).

Some years I prefer paying more to host a party somewhere and sometimes I love to host the party at home or at a park, where you save some money but are doing a bit more work to help entertain the kids.

For younger boys, we had loved a scavenger hunt party, a Lego party and a Hot Wheels party. One of the best ones we hosted was a sledding party in the woods a few years ago! Pinterest is full of ideas for at home birthday parties for all ages.

Here is a list of a few places in Flagstaff to have a kids birthday party, with some ideas for all ages:

Aquaplex– swimming, climbing, game room and more!


Cabin Fever- Laser Tag and Bounce House

City Parks- so many options here!

Climbing Gyms- Flagstaff Climbing and Beta Bouldering

Escape Rooms- Flagstaff Escape Space and Flagstaff Escape Rooms

Flagstaff Extreme Course 

Gymnastics- Summit Gym (among other things Summit Gym offers a nerf gun party!) and Flagstaff Gymnastics

Ice Rink

Lake Mary

Martial Arts – Maximun Martial Arts, Sleeping Lion and Academy of the Martial Way

Movie theatre

Music Together 

Peter Piper Pizza



Splash Pad Sedona (summer only)

Sports Events at NAU

I would love to hear your ideas, as I need to get planning for a few special boys in my life! Please let us know your favorite party locations and ideas in the comments below.

    We had a Minute-to- win-it party for my son in February. Pinterest had ideas on games. Chose a few and alternated indoor vs outdoor to keep the noise level sane. The best game was eating a donut off a string using only mouths. Prizes definitely kept boys motivated!

    Party Central Inflatables rents bounce houses and other party stuff.

    Xcape Flagstaff, in the mall, has glow miniature golf, escape rooms, and a large party room.
