You can be certain this will be a party to remember for the birthday child and all their friends. Parties get a dedicated tour guide who will make sure your child gets special attention as they meet the animals.
The tour lasts about 90 minutes and you can choose from a number of themes depending on the age and interests of your child. Following that, you then get your own party barn for your birthday meal (food extra or you can bring your own). This is cosy in the winter as each has its own wood burning stove.
You can extend your party by adding a disco session or by adding a visit to the Big Play Barn,see Party Extras.
Alternatively, if you wish to have a party just at The Big Play Barn, it offers its own parties - see their website for details!
