    you miss one of our favorite birthday party we have had so far, Erik Nelsen surf camp birthday party in Newport Beach! My son’s 7th birthday was with them and everyone surfed, and had a blast! Agnes were 5-9 at the party!!!

  2. Emmanuelle says:

    What a nice list, very well done! To save for sure,
    !

  3. You miss another place for kid’s birthday party is Gameworks. we arranged birthday party for my daughter’s 5 th birthday. Party Platters for kids with plenty to do to keep all ages occupied.

  4. Jasmine says:

    Looove this list! I am not from California so it was so nice to see such a comprehensive list!! Kudos Super Mom!!

  5. alecia says:

    Thank you for making this extraordinary list! My son will be turning 4 years old soon and I think you have enough ideas on this page for me to plan parties until he is 15. Amazing and awesome!

  6. Cal Driver says:

    Thanks so much for this post! I’d so much rather peruse this page than scroll through endless listings of related companies. This is a great one-stop resource. Thanks for the research and care you put into making this list.

  7. LeAnn says:

    Hi. Nice list! Here’s a few notes based on our experience….
    We have had parties at:
    1. My Gym in Yorba Linda. Really great for kids 3 years-old and under. My Gym’s strong point is their energetic staff who organize and direct activities throughout the party. Non-stop fun. Best for a smaller party – under 20 kids.
    2. Seascape Kidsfun – very organized party staff makes mom’s job easy. Kids had a blast. Highly recommend.

    We have attended parties at
    Bounce U and Pump it Up – they do the work for you – the staff seemed well organized. Kids had a great time.
    Irvine Railroad is a beautiful park setting – requires parents to rent Bounce house, bring food, etc. 3 year-olds really got excited about the train ride. Great for times of the year with good weather.
    Santa Ana Zoo – you can spend the day at the zoo after the 2 hour party time. Zoo has a playground, merry go round and train. The collection of animals is not extensive like the San Diego zoo – SA Zoo has monkies, reptiles, farm animals, birds, turtles, llamas and camels. (Note. the Zoo is located in the city of Santa Ana.)
    Gymboree – The staff was really nice. I would recommend for 2 years-old and younger as their play equipment is geared toward younger children.

    • Carin says:

      Just curious—why are you clarifying that the Santa Ana Zoo is in the City of Santa Ana? Isn’t that implied?

      • Consistency. I have the city on all the other listings.

        • Jamie says:

          It says the Santa Ana Zoo is in San Juan, no biggie. I am sure everyone can find it. Great list! Rockin’ Jump has opened since this list, and it is awesome too! (Trampoline park)

  8. Haleh says:

    Any ideas on where in OC to have a 5 year old beach birthday party, somewhere with a table to set up and easy beach access.? Thanks.

  9. Lauren Martinez says:

    Black star equestrian at the Huntington Central Park equestrian center offers kids birthday parties. It was a blast for my 4 year old. All the kids got to ride the horses, plus a craft and then painted the horses with water based paint. She had a great time!
    I’m looking forward to using one of these suggestions for next year!

  10. Jessica Rodriguez says:

    Great list! My daughter is turning 1 in August and I wanted to have a beach birthday party. I’m looking for beaches in the OC where I could have the party but I would like a covered area or place where I could reserve. Do you know of anything?

    • Jacklyn Wurtz says:

      Mothers beach in long beach is a must! Mellow water. Lots of restrooms. Play structures.

  11. Priya says:

    Thank you SO much for this list it’s awesome!! Definitely a go-to resource for an OC Mom <3 <3 <3

    It would be awesome to have parks or beach areas that are especially ideal for birthday parties.

    Also, I clicked on the Laserquest link and it seems their locations are not Irvine/FV but Chino, Fullerton and Mission Viejo. Just so you know 🙂

    Thanks again for this great resource!

  12. Veronica says:

    Love this list! I have one that you definitely will want to add on……Storymakery in Irvine! Had my daughters 4th bday there and they were amazing and my book loving & creative daughter absolutely loved it!

  13. Mary coleman says:

    What a great resource for the 6-7 year old and under. I need big help with our 13 year old daughter’s Birthday party about 20 little ladies and gentlemen. Trying to do this for about 350.00. Thank you,

  14. adam says:

    Great list, is there any teams in orange country that would throw like a sports party for 9 year olds in a park? Like sports challenges and games, like soccer goal, football, baseball challenges if we have the park and they have the equipment?

    • Tiffanie F says:

      I know this post is old but just in case try Core Athletic training. They do a lot of school programs and after school programs – probably something they could help with.

  15. Regina says:

    Heads Up! Tustin Lanes is permanently closed.

  16. Michelle says:

    We have had parties at Fountain Valley Skate, Scooters Jungle, and Seascape, We loved our experience at all places. The kids had a blast and the parents got to enjoy because all the work is done for you. Scooters in Anaheim Hills the party room is a little small but the play area is huge!! So its a give a take. Seascape does face painting as well. They just opened a Glow Zone in Huntington Beach as well that does parties. I have not been yet but have had friends say it is pretty cool. My twins are going to be 8 this year so all these places still work for me. Roller skating party was a big hit as well and you can have a lot of kids for a cost effective party!

  17. Kristi Daw says:

    What places would you recommend for a boy turning 3? We did Chuck e cheese last year, so I wanted to do something a little bigger. He has ZERO friends so he would be the only child. We’re going to go for a Spongebob theme this year too, so it would be great if I got to bring my own decorations! Plus his birthday is October 19th, so close to halloween

  18. Kim says:

    You have to add the place- once upon an island. All Disney princess parties in balboa. Super special and amazing. Just being in the presence of theses princesses will blow your little girls socks off! Check it out

  19. Heather says:

    Hi,

    Live the list! Where did you take the family photo with the blue door?

  20. Tanya says:

    Unfortunately Howies is closing 🙁 I tried booking a date for my son’s party but was informed both locations are closing. Any chance you could find another place like this?

  21. Natalie says:

    Any ideas on where to have a birthday party related to music for a 2 year old??? It seems like you have this OC idea down pat!
