New Jersey's Best Birthday Party Locations and Interactive Party Map

Thursday, February 15, 2018
If you're looking for a kid's birthday party venue and you don't know where to start, relax, The Jersey Momma is here to help! I've joined forces with a fabulous Pennsylvania blog called Been There Done That With Kids to bring you a map of the best locations for birthday parties in the tri-state area. I've also chatted with oodles of local parents to get some advice and suggestions about these venues, so toss some confetti and rest easy, this party is going to be a piece of cake!

*This post has been updated for 2019!

I've been throwing theme parties for The Jersey Momma's Boy for years now. He has a bit of party anxiety, so we usually have our parties at home (you can read about our art themed party and our robot themed party, just to name a few). But we have visited so many different birthday venues over the years and I'm happy to share some of the best with you!

Party Recommendations from Parents 

I asked as many parents as I could about their favorite party venues and here's the line-up of their top choices:

Turtle Back Zoo - West Orange, NJ
Why they like it: Many parents find TBZ nostalgic and fun, with a great staff that caters to all ages. Between animals, train rides and a cute carousel, they satisfy the nature lover in all of us! Read my review of Turtle Back Zoo here.

Branchburg Sports Complex - Branchburg, NJ
Why they like it: Branchburg Sports Complex offers a variety of party options for a range of age groups. A giant play maze, sports parties, arcade parties and their famous laser tag arena are just a few of the draws of this venue. Parties are fast-paced and fun, as well as super easy for parents!

Kidnetics - Montville, NJ
Why they like it: Clean, bright and fun, Kidnetics gets the kiddos up and moving and makes the birthday child feel like a star.

Funplex/Splashplex - East Hanover, NJ
Why they like it: If you've ever visited the Funplex in East Hanover, you know it's an amazing place. There are race cars, a pool, a magic quest, laser tag, arcade games and so much more. It really lives up to its name!

Rizzo's Wildlife World - Flanders, NJ
Why they like it: Rizzo's has been traveling throughout New Jersey with their reptile shows for years, and they've developed quite a reputation for quality and fun. Now they've opened their own location for visitors, and party goers just adore it! Read my review of Rizzo's Wildlife World here.

Sky Zone - Mount Olive, NJ
Why they like it: There are Sky Zones scattered throughout the state of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but the location in Mount Olive is known for its cleanliness and attentiveness from staff. Trampolines, ball pits games and more, Sky Zone is a great way for kids to get their energy out!!

Paper Moon Puppet Theater - Atlantic Highlands, NJ
Why they like it: Paper Moon received so much praise from parents as a wonderful place for preschool age kids to celebrate their special days. If your kids love classic entertainment and puppet shows, then this one's for you!

Painted Grape - Hamburg, NJ
Why they like it: Parents appreciate that Painted Grape also offers crafts for kids, not just paintings. They're also known for a wonderful summer camp program, too.

This map has HUNDREDS of ideas for birthday party venues in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Here's how it works:

This will open up the map and provide a drop down menu of locations. Party venues are marked with a birthday cake icon. You can then click on each venue or zoom in on its locations.

I hope you'll bookmark this interactive birthday party map, since I'll be updating it and adding to it when I come across new venues or if venues close.
