Things to do for a An Awesome 16th Birthday

16th-birthday-party-ideas

Sixteenth birthdays are a big deal, and they deserve a big celebratory bash! But not every family has the resources to organize an elaborate extravaganza, and that’s not what best suits most teens anyway. When you’re looking to have a unique, exciting sweet sixteen birthday party, Denver is one of the best places to find party activities that will amaze the birthday boy or girl and their entire party too. Here are the top three attractions Denver has to offer so you can coordinate a party no one will ever forget.

Urban Air Adventure Park

Is your party full of adrenaline junkies, athletes, or people that are just so full of energy you don’t know how to handle them? For an active sweet 16 birthday party, pay a little visit to Urban Air Adventure Park. They’ve got everything you need to get teens’ energy out with a spread of attractions that includes a high ropes course, laser tag, a trampoline park, go karts, and even indoor skydiving. If all that isn’t enough to convince you, they have even more activities for partygoers to try out, as well as an in-house cafe where you can get food and refreshments. Does Urban Air sound like the total package? That’s for you to find out!

EscapeWorks

Is your 16-year-old-to-be not that into the idea of breaking a sweat at their party? No problem. There’s still a way to get their hearts racing and give them a jolt of adrenaline, and it’s called EscapeWorks Denver. Choose one of five worlds to become a part of, and let the games begin. You’re locked in a room, and you have to race against time to work your way out of the room by deciphering clues and solving puzzles thrown your way. EscapeWorks is one of the most prestigious escape rooms in Denver and is wildly popular amongst both teens and adults. The facility may not have its own restaurant, but luckily it’s in a spot immediately surrounded by so many eateries you won’t know what to do with all your options.

Putting Edge

Golf facilities such as TopGolf are popular in the birthday party realm, but they can be intimidating to adults and teens who aren’t well versed in the world of golf quite yet. Instead, you can bring your sweet sixteen birthday party to a classic activity that got a bit of an upgrade: glow in the dark mini golf. Putting Edge is a revolutionary take on the traditional game of put-put that enlists special the special effects of blacklights to create a trendy ambiance that’s appealing to all ages. For an other-worldly, galactic party, visit Putting Edge in Lakewood, just outside Denver.

Turning sixteen is an achievement to commemorate, and it deserves a party that will go down in history. Make some memories and experience the best Denver has to offer by visiting any of these places to organize a party and celebrate the person of the hour in style.

The Reviews

  • review rating 5  The 1920’s Speakeasy was a ton of fun! I did this with my coworkers and it was a great team bonding experience that was just challenging enough. Our Escape Room Host, Sierra, was fantastic and made the experience that much better!

    review rating 5  Troy and Tommy Bohan with my son Paul Garcia-Lance and myself had the best of times trying to get out of the Egyptian tomb. We were seconds away but fell short of solving the mystery and we’re buried alive. Thank you so much for an enjoyable evening and a special shout out to Taylor and Sierra who moderated our adventure ! We have to return for our group picture and another great adventure!

  • review rating 5  We had so much fun at the Casino Heist room today! Savannah was amazing. The team has created difficult challenges and drop hints that are just enough to move you forward. We can't wait to go back and try another room!

    review rating 5  My group almost missed the entrance at first which you have to buzz into, but the staff were so helpful! Selena and Matt greeted us, had us sign waivers, and gave a few tips quickly so that we had as much time as possible! They were great at giving us helpful and creative hints throughout. We made it out with almost 10 minutes to spare! Some of us had been to an escape room before and others hadn't, but the outbreak room was just right for us! Thanks so much for a great time!

  • review rating 5  This was our very first Escape room we've ever done and it was the perfect choice. Both our guides were phenomenal! Energetic and you can clearly tell they enjoy what they do. We experienced the Egyptian Tomb and finished with 4:33 left on the clock. Next we did the Beyond the Flower Shop. We barely missed it but we had a blast. Will definitely be back!!!!

    review rating 5  Emilia was fun, helpful and friendly. My husband and I were joined by a family to attempt an escape out of the Egyptian Tomb and unfortunately failed {if only we had 2 more minutes and we would have escaped!} but had a fun time and would definitely recommend!

  • review rating 5  We completed a team event here where we split into teams and competed to finish first. Both rooms had amazing puzzles and it was really fun. I think our company team thoroughly enjoyed both rooms. We completed The Egyptian Tomb and the Casino but one of our members in the casino team can't seem to stop mumbling numbers and math equations.

    review rating 5  I rented beyond the flower shop room for my wedding party. We had a blast! The puzzles were challenging but fun. There was plenty of room for everyone to work on different puzzles at the same time. We got out with 2 minutes to spare. Shout out to Trace, he did a great job at only giving us hints when we needed it. I don't like it when they're too generous with the hints, takes the challenge out of the experience. This was my third escape room in Denver and I've used a different company each time. I would definitely come back here to try a different room.

  • review rating 5  Very considerate and nice staff and a great time! My group was placed with two other people randomly and they kind of took over the whole puzzle. The employees pulled us aside to let us know what they saw and they wanted to make sure we had a great experience of our own so they gave us a coupon to come back another time. They were really helpful from beginning to end and it was super fun!

    review rating 5  Went here as a small group recently and had a great time. Instructions from the staff were pretty clear at the beginning and helpful in their instructions in explaining how to try to solve the room. Trace was a great guide for this experience and would happily go again.

  • review rating 5  Went as a group for a team building exercise and did the Outbreak room. The puzzles were challenging and complex but we did manage to escape! It was a great time and a really immersive experience. Thanks to Sierra for sending us hints that were helpful enough to get us unstuck but didn't just give away the game.Overall a really great experience!

    review rating 5  We had a blast! We originally did the Casino Heist, however, there were some complications with the room. Dice and Emilia provided us with wonderful customer service and had us do Outbreak instead. We appreciated how much they cared about experience and we ended up having a great time. Highly recommend if you’re in the downtown Denver area and looking for some fun!

    review rating 5  Their flower shop was quite enjoyable, and Dana delivered with a lovely performance. Give her a raise 😁I've only done one room, but it was a great time. It was a bit challenging, yet did not feel too difficult for all levels of problem solving.
