A mom was recently looking for suggestions on spots to hold a birthday party for a bunch of energetic eight year old boys.  Since then this post has been edited to include ideas for slightly older boys as well.  Lots of great options!  Need more ideas?  Check out our Stuff to Do page.

The foam pit at Crossfire Commandos

Crossfire Commando was always fun.  EMM review

Cordova Bowling Center
The bowling alley in Cordova offered pretty good birthday packages (& affordable).

Priddy Farms
Priddy Farm pumpkin patch. It was our best party ever. Super easy.

Mason YMCA
YMCA indoor pool party

USA Karate-Bartlett

Shelby Farms Woodland Adventure Playground

Sky Zone an indoor trampoline facility EMM review

CMOM! Or the Memphis Zoo

ClimBridges can do rock climbing parties.

We did a YoLo party and it was awesome. Easy, no clean-up, and the kids had a blast making their own stuff. We brought some indoor games like corn hole and ring toss to keep the fast-eaters occupied. 

Cedar Hill Farm

Menagerie Farms in Collierville is brand new and supposed to be a lot of fun for kids of all ages.

Laser Quest

Collierville Arts Academy
Jedi Adventure and Battle Bash parties (or create your own)

Golf & Games has miniature golf, BattleZone (water fight), Sky Trail, arcade, batting cages, go karts, laser tag, bumper boats, and more.

We had a birthday party at Fox Ridge Pizza in Cordova a couple of weeks ago. They have a private room, let you bring in your own cake, and their pizzas are reasonably priced. Very nice people to work with and they cleaned up after! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Ice or Roller Skating options here

We have Game Truck coming to my 10 yo’s bday next month. The truck comes to your home and it includes Xbox, connect and wii and a huge amount of video games. The truck is air conditioned and has LCD screens. The kids can play each other. Ideal for boys.

Incredible Pizza!

I just did Seize The Clay for my 9 year old. It was great. Nothing to clean up when they are done! You just get to leave! Lol! No cake in the carpet.

Take a few of his friends camping for a night.
