Looking for the perfect place to celebrate your little one turning another year older? Well, we are very excited to present you all with the ABQ Mom’s Guide to Birthday Parties. This guide is a one-stop shop for parents as you decide where to host your children’s birthday parties.
No matter the theme or activity, we’ve got it covered here. Sit back, scroll down, and let us help you make your child’s birthday one they’ll never forget.
Enjoy your event and let us handle all the work! Reserved tables are prepared for you with table covers, plates, forks, napkins, and cups. A tabletop announcement welcomes the birthday child. Guests check in, and you have 90 minutes to enjoy the facility any way you choose. The reserved tables are yours for the entire 90 minutes, and you can divide your time to suit your needs. For every 5 reserved guests, you receive one reserved table, one large pepperoni or cheese pizza, a pitcher of your choice of soda, trampoline socks, and access to all areas of the facility. The birthday child is always free. Add more pizza, soda, tables, or time to your event and make it the party you envision for your birthday child. Cool Springz is a locally-owned New Mexico family business and we want your birthday event to be as wonderful as your birthday child. Share your birthday and family events with us!

ABQ Mom Team Recommendations
We hosted a party at Santa Fe Children’s Museum. We were able to decorate their party room and bring in our own food. All of our guests received a full day’s admission to the museum! It was a bit of a trek for our ABQ guests, so we gave suggestions on activities to do in the area after the party. Our friends and family loved making a day trip out of the event!
We recently celebrated my son’s 5th birthday at Top Golf. They have a selection of small-sized clubs for the kids. He has celebrated a total of three birthdays there and loves it! They also bring out a birthday treat.
My daughter had a birthday party at Electric Playhouse last spring. Obviously, the kids had a blast. I love how physically active it is for them. And I really loved that it’s relatively quiet there. Sometimes I get over-stimulated at party venues, but not at Electric Playhouse.
We’ve been to several birthday parties at Urban Air and our boys love it. Play structures, ball pits, trampolines, climbing walls, a giant zip line, dodgeball. It’s a kids’ dream! They have private rooms upstairs, but I’ve also seen lots of parties at the less expensive tables downstairs.
Recently attended a bday party at Ultimate Ninja Gym. They had a separate party room. It was reserved for the party and the staff was available to explain all the rules and even assist if needed. It is so fun for older and younger alike as they have a fun obstacle course for all ages! Loved it!
We celebrated our daughter’s 10th birthday party at Fallout Trampoline Park and recently attended another party there for my 5-year-old niece. Our party was reserved during regular business hours so other people were jumping at the same time, but we had a reserved room for our guests to decorate and provide food and drinks within. My niece’s party was held in the evening and booked solely for her party guests. This was nice for the younger crowd since they didn’t have to worry about much larger kids and adults jumping too hard around them. Both events provided a great party atmosphere with lots of fun for everyone!
We held our son’s birthday at the ABQ BioPark Zoo. He’s an animal lover so it fit his personality perfectly. We set up in the grassy area and asked our guests to bring their own blankets or chairs. We hauled our food and gifts in with a wagon. Many of our guests had memberships to the zoo, but we did offer to purchase tickets for anyone who did not have a membership. Our favorite was a ticket on the carousel—we got all the kids to go in one big group and it was a blast!
I rented the white bounce house from Tents and Dreams for a birthday party. The staff is just lovely and were perfectly on time with pick up and drop off. But the best thing was how beautiful the bounce house is. I will treasure the dreamy photos and videos from that party forever.
I hosted my son’s third birthday party at Explora this past April. The staff helped us put up decorations and were flexible with us when we had more RSVPs than expected (like 50 vs 30 LOL). It was also cool that all of our attendees got free admission to the children’s museum after our party.
We just celebrated my daughter’s 3rd birthday at The Little Gym. It was the most fun and least stressful party I’ve ever hosted. They do the set-up, play games, serve the food, decorate, and clean up. They have a bunch of decorations in-house or you can drop off decorations for them to use. My daughter wanted a Bluey Gymnastics party, so I dropped off a box with Bluey decor and they had everything set up and ready to go when we arrived. We brought food (pizza, chips, fruit, and veggies), and they served all the kiddos. They had little tables and chairs just for the kids in the party room and adult tables in the big entry room. My kid was so stoked! 10/10 absolutely recommend!
