Birthday Party Activity Ideas for Day & Night
The right activity for the right time of the day is the key for the ultimate birthday experience.
We have a range of brilliant birthday party activity ideas for all hours of the day. Whether you're an early riser or a nightlife lover, we're sure to have something for you. If you're undecided, then we've put the sun and moon together with the best activities for either time of day.
The Smartphone Pub Treasure Hunt
If the sun is shining bright and it's beer garden weather, then there's no greater birthday party activity than the Smartphone Pub Treasure Hunt. It's a super simple self-run activity which you can take part in over any time period of a 24-hour day. All you need is one mobile phone per team and the right app.
Utilising GPS and facial recognition technology, you will venture around the best bars in the town or city you're in whilst completing fun challenges and quizzes along the tour. A must for a summer birthday when the weather is in it's full glory, you can chill out in the sun with a pint in your hands and have a catch-up with your friends.
The best thing about the Smartphone Pub Treasure Hunt is it's crazy cheap for what it is since it's a self-run event. There's no need for venue hire, the streets are your playground, and no event staff present allows for prices to come down.
Zorb Bubble Games
Zorb Bubble Games are easily one of our most popular birthday party activites and a ton of fun for everyone involved. You'll be playing a variety of games using giant inflatable zorb bubbles like Bulldog, King of the Hill and many more. You and your friends will be in fits of laughter as you bounce and roll over the events area.
The event will be fully co-ordinated by a master of mayhem who will make sure everyone is having a great time, explain the game rules and ensure that health and safety is followed, making it a safe game to play by all ages.
Also available is Zorb Football, for all you footy-mad guys and girls out there! Similar activity with more of a 5-a-side focus.
