Planning the perfect birthday party, whether it be for your children, a spouse, or even yourself, can be daunting. There’s a lot that goes into the planning process, so it’s easy to become overwhelmed. You’ll need to send out invitations, prepare the food, select a venue, purchase decorations, and so much more.
But what if we told you that there were several birthday party places in MA (and the surrounding Boston area) that could help relieve some of your party-planning stress? Why put all the weight of planning the party on your shoulders when there are places that’ll do the hard work for you?
We’re here to help you give your child the ultimate birthday adventure. That’s why we’ve picked our top 8 spots for the ultimate Boston/Metro West birthday extravaganza.
The Best Birthday Party Spots in Boston & Metro West
1. Connors Farm
Connors Farm has everything that you can imagine a farm would. Here, you’ll find farm animals, fishing spots, pick-your-own fruits, hayrides, corn mazes, and more! This farm is the perfect spot for throwing a child’s birthday party.
When booking a party here, you’ll receive print-out invitations for the event to keep your energy focused on the big day. Included in the party is the party area, which is located inside the party barn. You’ll also be able to use the bounce house, receive a hayride, and enjoy all the play areas.
All children will receive one cup of animal food to feed the animals, and the birthday child gets a free t-shirt!
If your children love animals, we’re not sure if there is a better spot on this list for you to consider.
You can find Connor’s Farm at 30 Valley Rd, Danvers, MA 01923 and can learn more at their website here.
2. Burlington Ice Palace
The Burlington Ice Palace is the perfect birthday party venue for those who enjoy ice skating. This venue is located indoors, which means you get perfect skating conditions and don’t have to worry about the weather impacting the celebration!
Party packages start at $8 per guest for the basics. You can also select the Ultimate party package which includes 3 pizzas, 24 drinks, 1 hour of private skate time, and invitations!
Burlington Ice Palace is located at 36 Ray Ave, Burlington, MA 01803.
3. Laser Quest
If you haven’t played laser tag in a while, then you’ve most likely forgotten how fun it can be. As an adult, you don’t have as much free time to enjoy all of the things you once did as a child. Planning a birthday party for your child at Laser Quest is a great way to not only allow your child to have fun, but to have some fun yourself.
There are several different party packages to choose from, but most importantly they all include a lot of laser tag for the kids.
You can learn more about Laser Quest on their website.
4. Guard Up! Family Swordsmanship
One party venue that you might not have thought about is the Guard Up! Family Swordsmanship venue. When choosing to have a party adventure at this venue, there’s no question it’s one you won’t soon forget. Here your birthday adventure will include some awesome live-action adventure in your own custom story!
You’ll get to select a theme for your birthday party, which is what will lead your party goers on a customized adventure through a live-action story. Instructors at the venue dress up to play the part of monsters, zombies, villagers, and other characters. You’ll have a mission to complete and the outcome is up to you!
You can learn more about the themes and birthday parties on their website here.
5. Extra Innings
Extra Innings is an indoor baseball and softball training center. It’s the perfect spot for the baseball or softball fan in your household. They can invite their friends, teammates and more to a fun day at the cages.

6. A Girl’s Place, Party Boutique and Spa
For a more relaxed atmosphere, we can’t recommend “A Girl’s Place” enough. It’s a birthday party that offers a spa-like treatment experience for young kids. These party packages are geared towards children ages 3-13, where the staff will bring the party to you.
They offer packages that include hairdos, manicures, and makeup. You can also choose a face painting package, which includes face painting and manicures. The parties last two hours long and you’ll be given the option of adding on a few extras as well.
Think of this as the Spa Day your kids never knew they were missing. It’s one they’ll be talking about for a very long time.
7. Chocolate Therapy Birthday Parties
Who doesn’t love chocolate? If the birthday child or even adult loves chocolate, then a birthday party at Chocolate Therapy is a way to impress them! A party at this venue includes a tour of the facility, a chocolate mold for decorating and taking home, and a chocolate fountain experience where you can dip favorite food items.
It’s the perfect spot for those with a sweet-tooth, although everyone attending may have a slight sugar rush after the party!
8. Boundless Adventures Aerial Adventure Park
If you’re looking for an outdoor birthday party that includes ziplining, aerial ropes courses and more…you’re going to love Boundless Adventures.
That’s because for those who love spending quality time outdoors, booking a birthday party at Boundless Adventures will easily be the best party of the year. Here, you’ll be given an option of an all-ages party or a party for ages 7-11. When booking a party, it’ll include the aerial and zipline experience, a picnic table for the party, and a t-shirt for the birthday guests.
We’ll walk you and your party through the entire process: from safety setup to ziplining through the trees. We have guides available to help anyone get through the course, and parents are also welcomed to join in on the fun.
All we can promise is that it’ll be the talk of the school. We know because so many of the past birthday parties here have resulted in more visits from family and friends on their own time. There’s something about being up in the trees that makes it feel like the ultimate birthday.
