Birthday parties

We offer a wide range of themed birthday parties, where the children get to try their hands at something special! Parties usually consist of 1,5 hours of activities, and 30 minutes of eating towards the end. We offer different choices of food, and are happy to accomodate any allergies or intolerances. You can also choose to add cupcakes, candy, or ice cream for dessert.

 

 

Our themes:

Virtual Reality

Choose from a selection of virtual reality experiences like BeatSaber and Job Simulator, and play away! Note that we don’t recommend parties of more than 10 for this party, as time is divided between each participant.

 

Make a video game

Turn the party into a valuable learning experience, where you get to learn the basics of computer programming! Using scratch, we program movement, score-keeping and other game features to make a game that is simple, yet fun!

 

Build an electronic gadget

Learn how electronic gadgets work, while also getting to try your hand at soldering! Choose from a number of different gadgets, ranging from deftness games to digital roulette tables!

 

CSI (Crime Solving Party)

A crime has transpired, and you’re the only ones who can help! Solve the mystery using real-world crime-solving techniques like fingerprinting and blood analysis.

 

Make a short film

Action! Write your script, choose an outfit from our prop room, and record your very own short story.

 

Slime Party

Last, but not least. Try our most popular birthday party, where you get to make 3 different slimes, all made from non-toxic ingredients.

 

See ‘Prices and booking’ for information on how to book a party.

Note that we require a minimum of 6, and maximum of 25 children per party.
