Our space is decorated with nature murals, and the combination of music and floating bubbles creates a fantastical environment for guests to roam, romp and socialize!

The Enchanted Forest Party
One of the most popular parties of the Adventure Series, the Enchanted Forest Party is exciting for boys and girls alike. We will dance and enjoy special effects, interactive video and beautiful imagery while encountering silly toads, disappearing gardens, unicorns and an imaginative fantasy world! This party is best suited for children turning 3 or 4.
In this action-packed party, we will learn all the skills needed to save the universe! Superhero students will spread their capes as they fly into the “training center” for lessons in super speed, morphing, balance, agility and strength.
Experience a truly enchanting ballet class together with all your friends (tutus included)! We move to classical music with a twinkling, modern twist. Dancers will jump, spin, leap and wiggle together in a celebration adventure worthy of a storybook. Your tiny dancer and friends will create a routine of their very own to perform for family and guests!
High kick your way to an AWESOME birthday! The birthday child and friends will train with one of our experienced leads — gaining ninja strength and stealth. We complete an extreme ninja challenge to earn the title of Bubble Belt.

Let's meet some magical creatures! After painting, glittering and decorating your very own Unicorn, we'll gallop into the next room to activate our own Creative Movement magic. Using wands, rainbows, some help from our magic screen and of course our own enchanted spells, we'll transform into unicorns! Your big kids are sure to love this art and adventure party!
Under the Sea
Dive into an ocean of fun! In the Under the Sea party, we make sea creature masks using sequins, tissue paper and paints. Next we will swim to our activity room to celebrate the deep blue sea with video imagery, creative movement and songs of the ocean!
This party is designed for children who are fascinated by transportation. Each child will decorate his or her own three-dimensional car. Guests will then steer and scoot into the activity room: a highway of beeping, zooming and flying with friends via video imagery, props, songs and creative movement!
Creative Movement Birthday Party
Get your birthday energy out in one of our frolic-friendly play spaces at your own Creative Movement Birthday Party!
Birthday guests will both move their bodies and express their imagination in tandem. This party is excellent for those who love to climb, run and jump.

Creative Movement Birthday Party variations include Construction, Zoo, Transportation, Beach, Monster, Princess, Knight, Circus and Jungle.
"I knew going into it that it would be a fabulous time, but I was really blown away by how on top of it the staff was in terms of timing and fluidity. There was something new to happen for the kids so exploring and playing never stopped. With the energy that my little guy had, I was actually nervous about walking into the room with the blocks and tunnels and the staff assured me that it would change up after the music and they were right and very smart. The kids warmed up to the blocks and tunnel, engaged in the music without too many distractions then had a blast with the whole array of open play toys, to the point that we extended it! I also appreciated the fact that I didn't have to look at my watch once. The staff alerted me when something was about to happen. That is something that all parents are constantly doing at parties because they want to keep the flow going without the party going too long (or kids getting hangry) and I did not have to worry the whole time we were there. THANK YOU beyond words!"
"I want to thank you so much for coordinating a fabulous party that as one guest said was a "massive success"! Brittny did an outstanding job engaging/entertaining the kids through the creative movement activities and Zoe and the other facilitators did a top notch job managing the agenda and keeping events on schedule. It was truly a wonderful party and ran smoothly thanks to the staff preparation. The facilities are really great space for hosting a party and seating for eating in addition to clean and inviting. Thank you and their party was everything I had hoped for them."
"Bubbles went beyond our expectations. The open play was perfect for our kids and their friends. There were also some nice touches that we we weren't expecting (like the minion sign-in card, the minion projection in the food area). Without even asking, the decorations really supported our minion theme. Tyler and the staff made the party a success. They were so helpful with the setup and getting the kids from the play area to the food area. I also liked that the kids can go back to the play area after food. I also really appreciated the staff having the kids put on hand cleaner before going inside the food area. And Tyler cut the cake perfectly!"
"The entire process was seamless - from my initial call, to receiving the party packet information and contract, to the day-of set up. It was perfect. Seriously. The room layout was ideal for our party size, the staff was so helpful in setting up all my pinterest inspired DIY decor; they were especially helpful in just managing everything. I didn't have to worry about anything, but watching our sweet baby girl interact with every body! Thank you to Bubbles for creating a wonderful first birthday memory!!"
"What a fantastic space for big kid-friendly gatherings!!! I hosted a big 150 ppl Heritage Night event there and I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful it went thanks to this great spot with extremely helpful staff and perfect layout. Everything from their high tech music equipment to awesome toys made our party a huge success. Sierra and her helpers were super accommodating, fulfilled every request we had, helped us to set up food and cleaned the whole place afterwards! And all of this for a very reasonable price!!! Definitely coming back to host another school event at bubbles!!! Those guys are priceless!"
We offer you access to a compassionate team of teaching artists; a bright community of families to form lifelong friendships with, and overall piece of mind that the experiences enjoyed with us invaluably contribute to your child’s growth, happiness and confidence.
