Remember back in the day, when a Long Island birthday party was either at the skating rink or the local McDonald’s? Well times they have a-changed my friends and determining the winner of The Best Children’s Party Place on Long Island, well, not an easy task. But you did it, and now we bring you this years winners for Best Children’s Party Place on Long Island.
Long Islanders Voted BounceU in Farmingdale as Best Children’s Party Place!
1. BounceU Farmingdale
101 Carolyn Blvd., Farmingdale. 631-777-JUMP (5867). www.bounceu.com/cities/farmingdale.ny
If you’re a kid, what do you really want to do on your birthday? Open some presents, yeah, eat some cake, OK, but really? You want to bounce around a castle, feeling like gravity has lost its hold on you. BounceU features a private-party environment in which kids can go a little wild and share memories that will last a lifetime. Furthermore, their facilities and programs are designed to be safe, upbeat and truly memorable. As they say, “Children and grown-ups alike almost always experience the ‘wow factor’ when they first get a look at our incredibly cool bounce houses.”
2. Tiki Action Park
1878 Middle Country Rd., Centereach. 631-471-1267. www.tikiactionpark.com
Tiki Action Park offers a wide range of party options including, Luau, Pirate, Go-Kart, Tween and even Adult. The park provides themed invitations, an Island guide and even distributes individual thank you cards at the end. Their “Aloha Lounge” can fit up to 40 guests and their outdoor tropical picnic area can seat over 150.
3. White Post Farms
250 Old Country Rd., Melville. 631-351-9373. www.whitepostfarms.com
This is the sixth year White Post Farms has been on the Best of Long Island list, and with good reason. What kid doesn’t love pony rides, feeding baby animals and eating pizza? The staff will give you undivided attention during the one and a half hour party, and during the winter the fun continues, as they cordon off a heated indoor area that provides the same amenities as the summer parties.
