Ok Everyone, this is definitely off topic, so this should be the right place. But here's the whole thing that has come up:
My littlest one just turned six. She goes to a private school, and most of the kids where she goes have had their parties at a place called "Pump It Up", a place filled with giant inflatable jumpy houses and slides and stuff like that. After six or so times of going there, it has gotten fairly boring.
We suggested to our daughter to do something different. She went for it, and everyone had a blast. We went to an indoor wind tunnel called "iFly", basically it's indoor skydiving. They take kids as young as three, so it's not like this wasn't safe for them.
It's not that the party didn't go over well--my god did it go over great! Several days later we're still getting e-mails thanking us for the party and kids and parents both telling us thank you for having them there at the party. More than one parent voted that this was the coolest birthday party for the year (several parents got to go in, not just the kids), one little boy who was almost too terrified to do it at the start came out after grinning screaming that he wanted a birthday party there.
Here is the only negative that came up during the whole event, and I'll put it out to ADISC to see what they can come up with. It was pointed out that someone is just going to have to one up us now on the party front (the parent who brought it up hoped it wouldn't be them!), but the question is this:
