Ocean Party Tunes
Dip your toes in the sand or dive right in to our ocean party music. We’ll visit some of your favorite under the sea creatures and soak up some rays on the shore. Don’t forget to bring your sunglasses and splash along!
Listen to the rhythm deep in the jungle! Grab some binoculars and keep those eyes peeled for lions, tigers, and bears! Oh my! We’ll sing and dance with all our favorite safari animals!
Fasten your seat-belts — this party is full of drive, fly and zoom action. If you have your own little speed racer, this bash is the perfect song-filled vehicle to celebrate a birthday!

"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!"
