Smarty Party Idea: Adventure Landing


By Rachel H

Through the years, we have had a variety of birthday parties for my son and daughter. Some were held at home, while others were at specific venues. This year my son requested Adventure Landing, and I could not have been more pleased with his choice. Things at my house were unusually crazy around the date of my son's party, so it was a relief to have his celebration at a locale with no stress! Literally the ONLY thing I did to plan for the big day was order a cake and send out an Evite. The day was enjoyable and relaxing for all of us, which enabled us to focus on the real reason for the celebration ... my son!

Adventure Landing is located across from Hanes Mall at 1600 South Stratford Road in Winston-Salem. I am sure you have passed it many times and have seen the miniature golf course. This is only a small part of the birthday experience!

Upon arrival at Adventure Landing, your party host will great you and escort you to the private birthday room. We were able to keep any of our belongings here, as well as gifts and food. The room was fun and festive, and all of the paper products were provided for us.

As the guests arrived, each were given a cup of tokens and were able to play video games in the arcade room.

With 12 boys at our party, this was like a dream to them! They played games and collected tickets to cash in for prizes at the end of the party.

Once we were finished in the arcade, the boys gathered in the party room for pizza, popcorn and cake. Drinks, pizza and popcorn were all provided by Adventure Landing, which was another big perk! We also chose to open gifts at this time and took some pictures.

Next, we all moved out to the Bumper Boats.
This was my son's favorite part of the day. We spent about thirty minutes bumping, dodging, and squirting friends in the bumper boat pond, and it was a perfect way to cool off! Again the party host was with us and was extremely helpful to any of the children who needed assistance.

The boys then moved on to play miniature golf. The staff was very flexible and let us divide up as we best saw fit for our group. I was impressed with the seven-year-old boys making hole-in-ones!

When golf came to an end, parents started to arrive to pick up their children, so we gave out their "goodie bags" which were also provided by Adventure Landing. The boys turned in their arcade tickets for prizes and my son was presented with a souvenir mug for his birthday! The mug had an adorable group photo from his party.

Overall, I have to give our party experience a big thumbs up. I think this venue is perfect for a variety of ages, but it was especially fitting for this rambunctious group of seven and eight year old boys! There was no time for boredom here!

We had a party for our daughter here last summer and I had a similar experience. The staff was very helpful and the afternoon went smoothly. The afternoon of her party was extremely hot, but it was balanced out by the time indoors and the bumper boats.

Great idea. I've got twin boys who will be turning nine and have been trying to come up with something they would like. I think once I show them this blog and the website, they will be on board for this party!
