Rinky Dink: The Ultimate Winter Birthday Party in Akron

There are a lot of options for summer birthday parties for kids but the options for a winter birthday party in Akron are more limited.  This year we had my son’s 7th birthday party at Rinky Dink Family Fun Center in Medina and we could not be happier.  The kids had a blast and I barely had to lift a finger.  It was by far the least stressful party we have ever thrown.  I did a little bit of planning on the phone with Rinky Dink and then they handled all the rest.

Rinky Dink really is a fantastic option for your children’s birthday parties.  They offer a variety of birthday party packages.  We went with the Winter Cove birthday party package.  We had the whole place to ourselves.  Rinky Dink provided a party host who ran the party for us, organizing the activities for the kids and serving the food.  For 2 hours our kids had the run of the indoor playground, inflatable bounce maze, and the Pirates vs. Aliens game.

My kids were especially enthralled with the Pirates vs. Aliens.  It’s this room with these air guns that the kids can use to shoot soft nerf balls at targets to compete for points.

After play time we went to the party room where our party host served the kids pizza, drinks, and cake.

Speaking of cake… the cake, pizza, and drinks are included in the party package price.  They also included all the tablecloths, paper plates, serving ware, etc.  When I set up the party over the phone they asked us what kind of cake we wanted.  I just thought that they would provide a generic cake, but no!  I was able to pick from all of the different cakes offered by that the Dairy Queen that they use.  My son is majorly into Star Wars so he chose a cake that had Storm Troopers all around the edges.

Another bonus about this cake… I didn’t have to order it or pick it up.  I let Rinky Dink know what we wanted and they handled ordering and picking up the cake.  Not having to make or buy any of the food for the party was amazing. Also amazing was not having to serve all the foods and drinks.  Our party host and another helper took care of all of that for us.

Seriously, instead of worrying about all the food and everything, I was able to chat with other parents and enjoy watching the kids have fun from the comfort of these soft couches all around the cove room.

All throughout the party our host gave the kids these tickets.  He hid them in the bounce house, they played games to win them, and he even shot some out of the air guns in the Pirates vs. Aliens game.  At the end of the party the kids got to turn the tickets in for some little prizes to take home.

Overall, we could not be happier with our party experience.  Our seven year old felt like a king and I didn’t feel one iota of stress.  I highly recommend Rinky Dink Family Fun Center for any winter birthday party, and they have a variety of packages:

And if your child has a summer birthday party they have even more options for fun outside- go-carts, mini-golf, batting cages, and bumper boats.
