Planning a bowling birthday party can be a lot of fun! Here are some tips to help you organize a memorable event:

  1. Choose A Birthday Triple Play Party Package: Mid County Lanes offers 3 types of birthday parties: Bowling / Arcade – Bowling / Karaoke – Arcade Only. Our parties are 2 hours long and our multiple activity parties are separated in 1 hour intervals so you can enjoy a lot in 2 hours!
  2. Select a Date and Time: Decide on a date and time for the party that works for both you and your guests. Weekends are often popular choices for birthday parties, but weekday evenings can also be convenient.
  3. Send Invitations: Send out invitations well in advance, including all the necessary details such as the date, time, location, and RSVP information. You can opt for traditional paper invitations or go digital with online invitations through platforms like Evite or Paperless Post.
  4. Choose a Theme: Consider choosing a fun theme for the party to add an extra element of excitement. You could go with a classic bowling theme, or get creative with themes like retro, cosmic (glow-in-the-dark), or even a favorite movie or TV show.
  5. Book the Lanes: Once you have a confirmed guest list and a date set, make a reservation with us. Give us a good estimate on how may guests you’ll have attend the party prior to booking so we can gauge your expecting party size.
  6. Select a Party Package:  Choose a package that fits your preferences and inquire to us about any additional add-ons or customization options.
  7. Plan the Menu: Our birthday parties include food such as pizza & hot dog chips as well as unlimited refills on our Pepsi products. Looking for more? We offer party platters and great, tasty options for every age and diet!
  8. Decorate: Add some festive decorations to the party area to enhance the atmosphere. Balloons, streamers, and table centerpieces can help set the mood and make the space feel more festive.
  9. Organize Games and Activities: In addition to bowling, consider incorporating other games and activities to keep guests entertained between turns. You could set up a photo booth with props, organize a bowling-themed scavenger hunt, or plan a few rounds of arcade games.
  10. Party Favors: Send guests home with a small party favor or souvenir to thank them for attending. It could be something simple like a personalized bowling pin keychain or a bag of candy.
  11. Capture Memories: Don’t forget to capture the fun moments throughout the party! You can even have your party host help you get group photos of your party!
  12. Enjoy Yourself: Most importantly, relax and enjoy the party! Take time to mingle with your guests, play a few rounds of bowling, and celebrate the occasion with the birthday honoree.
