Party themes


For children aged 1 - 5 years. Children can enjoy a fun and exciting birthday with our specialised KinderGym equipment. The semi-structured, parent guided party will take kids through activities where they climb, crawl, roll, bounce, rock and swing. We also include singing, dancing and free-play.

Gymnastics party

Using all of the equipment, party guests can roll, swing, climb, jump and balance their way through the party. With organised group games and free-play, it’ll be non-stop!
