When you’re a teenager, birthdays are an opportunity to celebrate important milestone years. Gathering friends and family together is a great way to feel a sense of community, while also making your teen feel extra special. But as a parent, picking a satisfactory venue in which to hold your teen birthday party can be a challenge, especially when you want it to be a fun and memorable event.
Many options that were appealing to your kids when they were younger are no longer preferred. No more pool parties or gatherings at home. The ideal location should offer many things to do that are popular with teens and include food options.
That’s where Bullwinkle’s comes in, offering a wide array of activities for your teenager and their guests to partake in. Our birthday party packages are ideal for anyone turning 13 or older. And the numerous options available are guaranteed to keep everyone having a blast the entire time. This takes a lot of planning pressure off parents or anyone else organizing. Also, know that pizza is either included or available as an add-on with all of our packages, so you don’t need to worry about food, either—but you can always bring your own birthday cake!
What are the most popular teen birthday party packages? Let’s go over some details for each.
Pins and Pizza Package
Who doesn’t love pizza and bowling? The Pins and Pizza package keeps it simple, bringing together two classic teen favorites in our one-of-a-kind bowling alley. There are comfortable couches and high-definition video, premium sound, and state-of-the-art scoring technology. Your teenager and his or her friends will be thrilled to show off their bowling skills here!
This is also a great option because it’s flexible in terms of the size of your teen birthday and the number of guests. The overall price covers everything, rather than pricing per participant. You can select the package for up to 12 people if you’re keeping the party smaller. This provides you with 2 lanes and 2 hours of bowling, shoe rentals, 3 large 1-topping pizzas served laneside with soda, and a $60 credit in the arcade. Or you can choose the second option for a larger group of up to 24. This includes 4 lanes instead of 2, 6 pizzas, and a $120 arcade credit.
Groups always enjoy the Pins and Pizza Package, no matter what age—13- and 16-year-olds alike will enjoy the challenge and fun of bowling, especially when played within our exciting and innovative space. If parents are present, they can join the fun as part of a team or simply relax and enjoy our couch area while the pizza and soda are served laneside.
Pins and Pizza is offered at Bullwinkle’s on weekdays only. We also have popular weekend options for teen birthdays, like the Late Night Bash or the All Access Pass.
Late Night Bash
While the Pins and Pizza Package is a popular weeknight option, Bullwinkle’s also offers a Late Night Bash option on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. With a minimum of only 10 participants, this package offers tons of options to keep those teens busy for the full 4 hours. Each participant will receive a $5 arcade credit, plus unlimited bowling, go karts, miniature golf, bumper boats, and laser tag.
In addition to the above classic favorites at Bullwinkle’s, this option also includes unlimited access to the Sky Trail ropes course and the Soaring Eagle Zipline! Last but not least, make sure to check out our XD Dark Ride interactive movie experience.
With all of those activities, fuel is much needed! The Late Night Bash includes an hour-long table reservation featuring a personal All-You-Can-Eat Pizza and Soda Buffet, so everyone will have plenty of energy to take advantage of the fun.
The Late Night Bash package is typically more popular for teen birthdays in the 15- to 16-year-old age range, but any age can participate in this package. The only requirement is a height restriction for certain rides. Bullwinkle’s offers this package on Fridays and Saturdays from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., but for those groups that still want access to all the same amenities at an earlier time frame, there’s the Sunday option from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
3-Hour All Access Pass and Pizza Party Package
Another option that allows lots of flexibility is the 3-Hour All Access Pass at Bullwinkle’s. It includes a $5 arcade credit, as well as unlimited access to many of the same activities as the Late Night Bash: bowling, go karts, laser tag, bumper boats, miniature golf, and more! This package is $30 per participant and requires at least 10 guests.
We also recommend adding the Pizza Party Package for $60 with this option. Hot pizza goes hand-in-hand with the fun at Bullwinkle’s, and you’ll have an hour in our restaurant to enjoy bottomless sodas and two large one-topping pies. Set-up and cleanup are covered by our staff. And you can bring your own cake or enjoy our sundaes for $2.
The 3-Hour All Access Pass is an option that’s popular with all age groups and all teenage birthdays. It allows for flexibility with scheduling and is available anytime during our regular hours. Parents can be non-participants or jump in on the package as well and join the fun!
Where do I sign up?
Bullwinkle’s is one of the premium spots in the area to host a teen birthday, and for this reason, we ask that you make advance reservations with us online so that we know when to expect your group.
