Middle School Birthday Party Ideas

Best Birthday Party Ideas for Pre-Teens

Your pre-teens still get excited about their birthday party, but their friends may be a little harder to impress than they used to be. Show them you are the “cool parents” with a party at Urban Air. Pre-teens love the independence of exploring the park while you’re watching from a safe distance. For adventurous pre-teens, we recommend including Platinum or Ultimate passes so they don’t miss out on any of our fun attractions. Find your local park to explore pass options.

Fun Party Themes for Pre-Teens

Even though they’re trying to be cool, your pre-teens will still appreciate a well-thought-out party theme. Here are some of our favorites for those middle schoolers.

Sports Team

Perfect for the Active Kid in your life. Theme your party based on their favorite team and get everyone cheering!

At Urban Air, your sports fans will love the competitive challenge of Slam Dunk or racing to the finish on our Warrior Course.

Party Favor Ideas for a sports fan’s party include:

  • Miniature squishy versions of their favorite sports ball,
  • Wristbands,
  • Team hats or banners.


Superheroes are cool no matter what age you are. If your kid loves comics and superhero movies, give them a super-powered party.

If you bring your heroes to us, we recommend some time in the arcade, a thrilling spin in our bumper cars or around the go-kart track, and flying high on our trampolines. What better way to feel like a real-life superhero?

Party Favor Ideas for a Superhero party include:

  • Super Hero Masks
  • Party poppers,
  • Balloons.

Best Urban Air Attractions for Pre-Teens

Those pre-teens will want to explore all of the areas in your local Urban Air Park. We recommend the Ultimate or Platinum level attractions to increase the cool factor of your pre-teen’s birthday party. And remember, those pre-teens always eat more than you think so add an extra pizza or two to fuel the party. Don’t worry, our pizza tastes great leftovers too if you end up with too much. Check out the Ultimate and Platinum attractions at your local park and get excited about the best party….ever!

No matter what age your kids are, Urban Air Birthday Parties make the party planning easy and help your kids have an epic day that’s all about them. Learn more about Urban Air Birthday Parties and see just how simple and affordable your kid’s next birthday party could be.
