View Full Version : kids parties

02-Mar-10, 14:07

just wondered if anyone had any information about what is available for kids re parties. My son is having a birthday soon and we were thinking of holding a party for him and his friends and maybe hiring a bouncy castle (for inside - obviously party day the heavens will open and probably 10ft of snow will fall out ! ) ......

can anyone give me any info about what is available locally, he has in the past gone rollerbowling etc but we lived in Inverness then and it seems a very long drive to do this now, besides there must be lots to do locally :-)

Ahh the one foxy posted about is the one they had at the party, it is great, it has a slide and is good condition and really was nice with mesh windows so you can see what the little devils are up to in there!

I've seen a number of kids parties at both Thurso & Wick swimming pools. You hire the inflatable and give them an hour to burn off some energy and have some fun, and then have party food & drink in the seated areas after.
