Planning birthday parties can be stressful and require a lot of hard work. An ideal celebration provides hours of entertainment, leaves the guest of honor with amazing memories, and ensures each and every one of the party attendees enjoys themselves.

If you’re at a loss for Portland birthday ideas or want to do something different this year, consider Bullwinkle’s in Wilsonville. A premier spot for fun and adventure in the Portland area, we’re also an excellent birthday venue and can help take some stress out of party planning.

Here’s why Bullwinkle’s is the perfect Portland birthday venue at any age.

Variety of Birthday Packages

When it comes to birthday parties, we know there’s no such thing as a one size fits all option. At Bullwinkle’s, you’ll find different packages available depending on your budget and plans. We want to make sure you can choose whatever best suits your party!

We offer many options that vary based on the ages of the attendees, but most range from $17 per person + $55 pizza party to $32 per person. Already know what you’re looking for? Then simply choose your own adventure and we’ll accommodate your group as requested.

If there are people of different ages at this party, you can mix and match the birthday packages for the different age groups. That way, no one gets forced to do any activities they are too young or too old for, and it just makes things a lot easier. You want to make sure everyone is having a good time!

You don’t have to worry about everyone picking their attractions ahead the time. Guests can choose what they want on the day of the party by just scanning a card at the attractions. This means no one will be disappointed if they want to change their mind because you’re not locked into anything.

If you are planning to eat and open presents at home or another location, you don’t have to make a reservation with us. But if you want to bring cake and/or presents to Bullwinkle’s, this is required. Availability is limited, so requests should be made as soon as possible, at least a week before your chosen date.

You can make a reservation on our website, at Or call (503) 685-5000, extension 101 to speak with one of our Birthday Coordinators who are available to help if you have any questions or need more information about the options for your party.

Attractions for All Interests and Ages

There’s something each and every guest will love at Bullwinkle’s, so you won’t have to worry about anyone feeling bored or left out. That includes the adults!

Younger children will run toward our four-level Kidopolis Playground, where adults’ admission is free, in case you need to be there to supervise.

And for older kids and adults, we have a number of thrilling rides such as the XD Dark Ride.

Anyone who loves a little competition can race go karts. Or, play a game of Lazextreme laser tag. This isn’t your standard laser tag! Our attraction uses virtual reality, strobe lights, fog, and music to create an exhilarating game.

Speaking of virtual reality, go for a futuristic, mind-blowing experience with the VR Challenge game. And the XD Theater, a 6D motion simulated thrill ride that transcends time, space, and imagination!

There’s also classic attractions like bumper cars and miniature golf. We have two miniature golf courses for a total of 36 holes. One of our courses, Arctic Adventure, is Pacific Northwest-themed, with a bait house, bears, and a beautiful landscape to pay tribute to the Portland area!

When it’s warm and sunny enough, try Bumper Boats, our fun twist on bumper cars. From Memorial Day to Labor Day the boats are equipped with water squirters for extra fun!

Bullwinkle’s has special birthday add-ons, too. If the guests are still having an absolute blast after using the points that come with each package, you can purchase extra arcade points and/or attraction cards.

With all these options available, choosing Bullwinkle’s as a birthday venue means hours and hours of fun!

Food, Drinks, and Decorations

To start, there’s the Pizza Package for $55. Who doesn’t love a pizza party? Bullwinkle’s will reserve restaurant seating and serve generous portions of our delicious two large, one-topping pizzas that have twelve slices each.
