We had the pleasure of attending Megan’s 5th birthday party at Jumperzillas, Marina Bay Sands, last weekend and I have to say, it was very very good indeed. As I didn’t give them the best thumbs up in my MBS adventure blog – for my boys anyway, because the venue is just so small – I have to say, I was very impressed at the quality of their party throwing.

From free play in the play area, to an arts and crafts session that my boys actually participated in (shock!) and then a very decent sized party room for some good food (although the Mum in this case did supply extra munchies), it concluded with a cake cutting ceremony and more free play. It was a three hour affair all up, and while the venue was not closed exclusively for the party, if you book it for the first slot at 10am, you are pretty sure to get the space to yourself.

The staff were great and took control of the show, but the highlight for me – the parents of the birthday girl looked very relaxed indeed. Hey if you’re going to outsource a party, that’s the way it’s supposed to be right? Suffice to say, I haven’t had much success with a relaxing party to date.

Depending on what package you buy, the activities are quite different. I’m presuming the party we attended was a “Hippy Bumpee” party – as there was play, arts & crafts, food, and some of the best party bags I’ve seen in Singapore – minus a few items I wish my boys didn’t see. You can’t win them all.

The cheapest party is $450 for 10 kids and $25 for every additional child, all the way up to $1,299 for 15 kids (the “Groovie Greenie Party”) + $49 for each additional child. Or you can tell them what you want to do and customize your own party. It’s certainly not cheap throwing a kids’ party in Singapore – unless you do it yourself – but if you are looking for a different party venue to the one’s you typically attend, I can recommend Jumperzillas. Age-wise, I’d say up to six years’ old maximum, maybe a bit older if the kids are the sort to enjoy arts and crafts or playing with computers? For older more active children, I can’t imagine you could go too much beyond that, but then it depends on what you do right?

I give them a thumbs up and hope the staff keep up the good work.
