Party Themes

Amazon

Adventure with us as we journey deep into the largest rainforest in the world, the amazing Amazon. Your child’s special day will be filled with eruptive fun as they create their own working volcano, meet a hands-on animal ambassador from the jungle, and even make a cork boat to sail the mighty Amazon river.


Bayou

Meet the backwoods of Louisiana like never before with a hands-on encounter with an animal ambassador from the swamp. On your child's special day, feel at home in the bayou by creating your own swamp slime and wildflower kit, and you'll truly experience the wild side of Louisiana in a whole new way.


Outback

Welcome to the land down under! Your child’s special day will be filled with a hopping good time as we immerse ourselves in the unique Australian culture by creating your own working boomerang. Discover the unique wildlife only found in Australia by meeting a hands-on animal ambassador of the island.


Far East

Journey to the far reaches of the world on our ancient expedition. Your child will have a party worthy of the true king of the jungle. We will feel the power of the whales in their vast ocean, meet a hands-on animal ambassador only found in these hidden forests, and learn the art and wisdom of origami.


Savanna

Join us on a safari in wild Africa as we set out to see a few of the most iconic species in the world. Build your own binoculars to see wild creatures up close, meet a hands-on animal ambassador from the savanna, and learn how to track creatures both big and small in this wild adventure!
