Sometimes your backyard or house just isn’t big enough or doesn’t have what you need to throw the perfect party. That’s where a local party venue comes in. No matter whether you’re throwing a birthday party for your little one or hosting a family gathering, there are many awesome locations in and around Oklahoma City to have your next bash. Here are six spectacular family-friendly party venues near OKC.

SoccerCity OKC

SoccerCity OKC is an enormous indoor soccer facility with three large fields. Not only does this location play host to local soccer leagues, training sessions, and clinics, it also serves as a fun and unique place to host a kids’ birthday party or large family gathering.

This facility allows you to host your party on the smaller field or upgrade for a few dollars more and get the large field. Each package comes with one hour of play with more playtime costing extra, free soda, one hour in the party room, and a T-shirt for the birthday kid. You can buy food at the concession stands or get pizza for a little extra. However, this place is BYOC and BYOD: bring your own cake and bring your own decorations.

Or, consider hosting a lock-in where your group gets a field, a party room, and exclusive access to the facility for six whole hours. If you’re trying to make a whole day out of a birthday party or family gathering, this is the option for you.

Rustic Roots is a local farm and outdoor event space in Lamont, Oklahoma, about an hour-and-a-half drive from OKC. But the long drive is well worth it if you’re looking for a place that has a bouncy pad, animal farm, climbing wall, jungle gym, and many more fun outdoor activities. They even have seasonal activities, like a pumpkin patch, corn maze, and Christmas lights.

You can call the farm to reserve space for a party and get free roam of the area. This might be a great spot to celebrate the birthday of a kid who loves farms and animals or just has a lot of friends who love to run around and play. Party packages come with access to all the fun facilities, a ride on the barrel train for all the kids, tables and chairs, and a bucket of feed for the kids to give to the animals.

Skate Galaxy OKC

If your family loves to rollerskate, then Skate Galaxy OKC might just be the perfect place to hold your next kids’ birthday party or family gathering. The standard party packages take place during regular open hours, so you’ll be skating with other patrons. With each party package, you get a reserved table with settings, admission for up to 10 children with complimentary adult admission, regular skate rental, soft drinks, and pizza.

The Super Star Package adds upgraded skate rental, ice cream, glow sticks, and a free admission pass for guests to come back to Skate Galaxy. If you want a party room, you can upgrade to the Rock Star Room package, which includes everything in the Super Star Package plus the private party room.

You can also book the whole place for an exclusive event, like a late-night Friday night skate party or a private party with lots of people. On occasion, this venue also allows you to book all-night skate sessions so you can skate late into the night.

Breakaway Indoor Playground

Breakaway Indoor Playground is 9,600 square feet of indoor fun, including a three-level playground structure, tube slides, a trampoline and foam pit area, and an infant and toddler area. There’s even a lounge space for parents to watch their kids play and for everyone to relax after running around for a while. This venue would be a great spot for a birthday party or a kid-focused family gathering.

You can book a small party during the week, a weekend party for up to 50 children, or an exclusive-access party where you have the whole place to yourselves. With all of the party packages, you can order food with the facility or bring your own for a small fee. They offer different kinds of pizza, juice and water, and ice cream. You can always hit the snack bar, too, for even more good eats during the party.

Unpluggits Paint & Play

Unpluggits Paint & Play is a family-friendly venue where you and your guests can express your creative selves. For kids’ birthday parties, guests can pick a piece of pottery to paint or a craft to make, play on the indoor playground, and celebrate in one of the themed party rooms. You can also book a custom painting party for kids, teens, or adults where an instructor leads your group in creating a canvas painting, tie-dye item, garden stone, or bubble painting.

Oklahoma City Zoo

If your birthday kid or family loves the zoo, then you have to have your next party there! The Oklahoma City Zoo offers a few different packages for birthday parties, all of which include access to a party room, general zoo admission for multiple guests, a special gift for the birthday kid, and tables and place settings.
