Great Play of Redmond

Athletes and non-athletes alike love Great Play of Redmond’s classes because they build fitness, coordination, teamwork and overall athleticism through directed play. And when it comes to birthday parties, Great Play makes birthday boys and girls the star of the show! Each All-Star party is fully customized with activities that guarantee your guests will have a blast. Sports fanatics will love the Championship Day Party, it's like the Super Bowl, World Series and World Cup combined or the Olympic Party, where everyone in your party competes as a team in unique Olympic-style events (think capture the flag, a mini triathlon and races).

If you’ve got a super hero wannabe, the Super Hero package gives party-goers ages 3-6 the opportunity to play games, earn clues and gain super hero power. However, if your party animal just wants to run around and have fun, the Fun & Games party packages are designed for both the under 5 set and ages 5-10 and include an age-appropriate selection of Great Play’s “best of” games. And finally for those kids who want a rockin’, high-energy party, the Dance Party package is inspired by Great Play’s zumba class and is packed with kid-friendly dance routines and age- appropriate Great Play games.

Good to Know: 90 minute party packages for up to 18 kids range from $299 to $374 and include exclusive use of the facilities, three coaches, a customized party and plates, napkins and utensils for cake. Great Play also takes care of the setup and cleanup!
