Flip through our album for all the places you can burn big energy — and then come home to a calm (and clean) house.

For Superhero Adventures: POW! Kids

For kids who harbor fantasies of being a superhero, Ninja warrior, or any other leaping, jumping or swinging creature, Pow! Kids offers fantastic birthday party options. The base party, Athletic Play, gets kids moving with relays, obstacle courses and agility exercises. From there, you can add a theme like Ninja, Nerf Skills, Martial Arts, or our favorite, Superhero (complete with capes and masks!). Customized parties are available, too.
