Best places to hold a birthday party in Chicago

When it comes to finding a place to hold your child’s next birthday party, the options in Chicago and the suburbs can be a bit overwhelming. Here are a few great choices that make parties super easy and extra fun:

Funtopia (Glenview & Naperville)

Why kids love parties at Funtopia: Why wouldn’t they: to climb on dino bones, to crawl in a cave, to go through Ropes course challenges and much more. When you are the birthday kid and hear your friends saying: This is the best party we have been invited to, it doesn’t just make you smile, it makes you proud.

Why parents love parties at Funtopia: Parents always like when their kids are having fun but even more when they are doing something good for themselves. Funtopia’s attractions are specifically designed to be healthy for the body and the mind. All of this plus the seamless experience make our parties a favorite.
