Top Tips For A Wonderful Waterpark Birthday Party
If your child has been wishing for a birthday bash at a waterpark, then wipe your worries away. Just read on and find out how to put together a winning birthday party that will surely make a splash for your kid and all your guests.
Splish, splash! What a birthday bash!
Waterparks are one of the best places to hold a birthday party. Kids of all ages will surely have a whale of a time trying out all the amenities and attractions available. There are certainly a variety of exciting things to do at a waterpark that not only involve frolicking in the water. There are slides of every shape, size, and color that even kids-at-heart will love.
Aside from the exhilarating water activities, there are also facilities that make it an ideal place to hold a birthday shindig. There are cabanas where people can lounge at, cafes, restaurants, and bars to hang out in, an infinity pool to swim in, or maybe even a ‘lazy river’ where you can just float around and be swept away at leisure.
There are even huge waterparks that have an event venue to cater to their guests’ particular needs. Such a venue can hold company outings, team conferences, and even school programs and activities such as summer camps.
Waterparks that are passionate about delivering excellent service also make it a point to create fantastic birthday packages as well as other special offers and promotions to ensure that guests are delighted with their service.
If you have decided to gift your child with a birthday bash at a waterpark, here are some top tips to remember so you can all have a terrific time:
1. Decide on a theme or concept
When you’re going for a waterpark venue for your child’s special day, then make sure that you prepare well for it. Not only is it a celebration of your child’s life, but it is also a symbol of your love and affection. This also means that you will need to invest time, effort, and resources to ensure that everything will flow as smoothly as possible.
Start by deciding whether there is a specific concept or theme for the event. Even if it is a waterpark and kids will already be thrilled to swim and slide, some kids would still go for a mermaid or pirate theme for their party. For older kids, ask if they have other preferences. Better yet, involve them in the discussions and planning (unless it’s a surprise, of course).
2. Choose and confirm
You also have to decide on the number of guests, the venue, and other party elements such as costumes (if needed), prizes (for games or raffle events), or party favors. If you want, you can also hire a birthday party organizer, especially if putting together a party is not your cup of tea.
Premier waterpark birthday venues already include party invitations, party decorations, kiddie meals, party games, and even a party host.
Make sure to send the invitations at least two weeks ahead of time. Other waterpark venues also take care of electronic invitations that you can send out to your invitees at least a month before and will serve as your save-the-date invitation. Make sure to inform your guests about waterpark rules such as proper swimming attire, height restrictions, and other park regulations.
Confirm the number of attendees at least a week before the party. Since it is being held in a waterpark, you might have to book tickets ahead of time. Similarly, the number of confirmed guests will also dictate how big an area you need and how much food you need to prepare.
3. Book early
When you have decided on the event particulars, you can already ask your party organizer to go ahead and make reservations. It is best to book in advance, as there are venues that get packed fast. The same goes for suppliers like photographers, party entertainers, and an audio-video production team.
You should also make sure to double-check details such as the time and date of the affair. Check if you will also need to book transportation for your guests, or need to organize a carpool for everyone.
4. Safety first
Since the party involves water activities, it is better to be safe than sorry. If you can, put together a short and reader-friendly snapshot of the park rules and safety regulations and email, send online, or physically mail it to your invitees.
If there are guests or anyone in your family who has allergies, food restrictions, or current medical conditions, then you should also align the waterpark staff in charge of your birthday party. This way, they can also prepare accordingly.
Try to also find time at the start of the party to have a safety briefing with all the kids. This can help prevent mishaps during the event. You can make the briefing fun and interesting if you make a mascot or cartoon character deliver or act out portions of the talk, for example.
There are places at the park where they can slide, splash, and surf to their heart’s content, but make it a point to remind them that with such great fun also comes great responsibility.
5. Have fun and enjoy!
When you have checked, double-checked, and confirmed all the details, then it is time to finally just relax and have fun.
Even if you don’t have a dedicated birthday party planner, you can still rely on your arrangements with the waterpark events team. Trust that they have already gained experience and expertise in staging birthday parties. For sure, they will do their best to accommodate you and deliver excellent service to make your party a splashing success.
Sunshine and rainbows
There might be instances when even your most ironed-out plans can still go awry. When this happens, breathe and calm yourself. Try to find a rational solution and see if it can be something that you or your events team can fix. If it is something beyond your control, then let it go and try to focus on the good things.
Just look at how your child is beaming with the birthday party that you have lovingly prepared.
