Events & Parties for Children
Please note that we do not host parties or events for children or anyone under the age of 18 Except for high school graduation parties hosted by an adult.
The responsible adult for any event must be at least 21 years old (due to legalities related to alcohol).
Unfortunately, we have found that our space is not designed well for children’s events & therefore we have a standing policy that only adult events are permitted. As a service, however, we would like to recommend a couple of great alternatives:
The Big Bounce trampoline park, 1645 Gateway Circle, Grove City (just up the street from us). You can host parties for any number of guests, or even rent out the entire facility if you want! Parties include pizza, beverages, and a party host. 614-792-2582 (e) BigBounceGroveCity@gmail.com
The Cheer Center, 1761 Gateway Circle, Grove City (also down the street from us). Keep the kids active with a fun party at this renowned gymnastics facility, complete with Tumble Trak, trampoline, spring floors & plenty of mats. Special party packages available. 614-539-5970
COSI (Center of Science & Industry) 333 West Broad St., Columbus, OH 43215. Have a fun science themed party with age appropriate activities, including Liquid Nitrogen ice cream made at the party. 614-228-COSI

Skate America Roller Skating, 4357 Broadway, Grove City. 614-875-3181
The Grove City YMCA, 3600 Discovery Dr, Grove City. They have all kinds of options for children’s parties, from “space only” that includes just tables/chairs, to a full party package that includes décor with balloons and an onsite party planner to help run it! You can a themed pool party, a basketball party, a climbing wall party, or several other options, and you can bring in food or have it delivered by one of the many places they recommend. To get more information, call their event planner Annette Jennings at 614-871-9622
You might also consider these ideas, although we haven’t actually visited all of them ourselves:
- a bowling party
- ice skating
- an arcade party at Dave & Busters
- the Columbus Zoo
- go-carts at Grand Prix Karting
- laser tag at Lazer Kraze
- or a Lego party
We hope this is helpful in your planning, and please keep us in mind for your other future meetings and events!
