Kannapolis Cannon Ballers
Sarah Calamita: The Kannapolis Cannonballers are a great birthday party option. You can rent a suite, get seats together or sit on the lawn in the outfield. I love that stadium because there is a splash pad and playground in the ballpark! It is super easy and fun for kids. They have lots of promos for kids as well ($2 popcorn, Saturday fireworks, etc.) Kannapolis downtown (across the street from the stadium) has lots of cute shops and restaurants.
The Speedpark at Concord Mills
Amanda Banta: From mini golf to go-karts to ice skating kids can have their pick of activities for their birthday party at the Speedpark at Concord Mills. The starting package includes one choice of a fun attraction, use of a covered party area, snacks and drinks, and goody bags.
Sarah Calamita: If your little one loves gymnastics, Everest is a great birthday party place! The location is huge, almost brand new and has a nice little party area. Choose the Cornelius location!
Sarah Calamita: Spare Time has several Charlotte area locations. Bowling + arcade is a great option for any age!
Urban Air Cornelius
Sarah Calamita: Urban Air in Cornelius is the best option. The kids will have a blast and they do everything for you! Plates, napkins, pizza! Just bring dessert :)
Inner Peaks Climbing
Amanda Banta: Kids and teens will love rock climbing the walls at a birthday party at Inner Peaks Climbing Center. Instructors will be on site to help and teach. Teen parties will include extra challenges and the use of additional equipment.

Team mascot, Sir Purr, will be on hand to visit with your child and guests. Parties also include a stadium tour, party favors, mascot autographs and more activities.
Charlotte Star Room
Amanda Banta: If your child has dreams of being a pop star then you need to check out the birthday parties offered by the Charlotte Star Room. The professional team will help bring your child's musical dreams to life as they perform and record their favorite tracks alongside their friends. Party packages can include a multi-song recording session, professional pictures, red carpet entrance, and snacks.

Parties include art project supplies, table decorations, and private studio time.
Pineville Ice House
Amanda Banta: Bring your skater and friends to the Pineville Ice House for a few spins around the skating rink and a birthday party to remember. Parties are open during the rink's public skating sessions but include a private party area for your group to eat pizza and cake.
Amanda Banta: With themes including slime, dinosaurs, glow-in-the-dark and kids' favorite characters and games kids will love birthday parties at Atomz Lab. Kids will experiment with the science behind the party's theme, like making sugar scrubs at the spa parties or see their slime glow in the black-lit lab. Party packages are hassle free for parents.
Art Space Studio
Amanda Banta: Creative kids can express themselves artistically at an arts and crafts birthday party with Art Space Studio. Your kid's friends will paint pottery pieces as they celebrate your child's birthday. Boardroom designing and glass fusing are offered for older kids, too.
