How Much Do You Spend on Your Childs Birthday Party?
26% of parents say that they have paid $500+ on their child's birthday party! Some moms say they spent more than that, especially if they have multiples. I did some research about the actual cost of some of the popular places to have a birthday party in the Tri-State, and this is what I found out:
I had my son's 5th birthday party here, and I did splurge on the VIP stuff. The current Premium VIP Party starts at $249. That includes a private jumping area for up to 20 friends. Food and drink are extra. When you figure in the extra cost, for food & drinks (And you'll probably be feeding some parents, too) Your final bill will be around $340. This does not include cake or a tip for your host.
With the Walther's Style package, you get a bit of everything that they have to offer. Their pricing is $35.99 per person, with a 10 person minimum (Not including the birthday child. So, for a party of 10, it costs around $360 X 2 if you have 20 guests.
3. Sky Zone
Sky Zone's pricing depends of the number of jumpers and the day of the week. The Supreme Air package accommodate 20 jumpers, and runs $399 on a weeknight and $429 on a weekend. This does include 4 pizzas, drinks and Dippin' Dots for everyone.
4. Elite Air
Elite Air offers 3 types of parties; Private Room, Glow or Ninja. Pricing begins at $235 for 10 guests and the birthday child. Additional children are $12, so a basic party of 20 totals $343. This does include drinks, but not pizza. That can be added on for $10 per pizza.
Parties with 10-12 guests range from $215 for basic bowling and 2 pizzas & drinks, up to $399.50, and that includes a little bit of everything: Bowling, Lazer tag, $10 arcade game cards, pizza & drinks. Additional guests can be added for a fee.
