Children’s Birthday Parties

    Check Out Our Birthday Party Options and Fuel Up For Fun!

    Looking for unique birthday party ideas? All our kids parties start in a private party room where your dedicated party host turns up the magic. First, we’ll take a custom tour of the hangar in which our host will explore planes, helicopters and other aircraft from a kid’s perspective! We will compare “big, bigger and biggest” and “fast, faster and fastest.” Older kids will take a serious look at some real-life test aircraft in our hangar–the ones that flew, almost flew, never flew–and the tales they tell.

    It all adds up to awesome fun!

    Is it Science? Or is it Art? 

    Your party host will engage the kids with a fun activity such as:

    • Bubbles
    • Paper Planes
    • Helicopter Pencils
    • Paper Rockets

    After Cake and Presents …

    Children will be invited to explore our Skyways Discovery Zone. They’ll pass through a “security station” complete with bells and whistles, and of course, a counter with a tray filled with “stuff” that goes through the scanner. They can fly a 4-seater plane with a complete cockpit, test out the wind tunnel and “lift” machine. They’ll be able to push buttons and pull levers until it’s time to go. The area is brightly lit and situated next to our Flight Deck (where moms and dads can relax and watch the airport traffic come and go.)

    • Exclusive use of a private party room for up to 2 1/2 hours with access to our kitchen facilities
