Hosting a birthday party for a teen is a challenging endeavor. Often, what they want this minute changes dramatically seemingly milliseconds later. Then, you’re left wondering how to go about planning an event for days, or even weeks, in the future. Therefore, it’s imperative to find teenage party ideas that fit their whimsical and mercurial moods. Finding a venue that hosts a variety of activities for the honoree and party guests helps solve this issue.
Two Teenage Party Ideas that Rock!
Initially, think about what you do at a party. Mainly, the basic goal of gathering friends to celebrate. Generally, it’s to share some experiences and joy together. Since not every teen enjoys the same thing, a diverse game plan helps. Moreover, teenage party ideas typically involve less party games and more social time. The two birthday party ideas below fit all directives!
Plan a Mall or Downtown Scavenger Hunt
Make a list of things to find in your local mall or a safe area downtown. Split party guests into teams and have them take photos of each item found. Once the game is complete, treat guests to a snack in the food court or a local treat shop downtown.
While this is a creative idea, it involves supervision and a bit of pre-planning. Especially, if you choose a mall. For instance, it’s wise to let stores know ahead of time that they’re part of your scavenger hunt. Better yet, providing money to make a small purchase in a few stores is considerate. For example, you could add a few extra dollars in the game for small items. A pair of sunglasses, some nail polish or a candy bar make fantastic treats for the scavenger hunt winners. Also, doing so ensures that your small disruption doesn’t disgruntle store owners.
Select a Venue with Multiple Activities for Party Guests
Since each teen may have a different idea of what’s fun, choosing a place that offers numerous activities makes sense. Better yet, many venues do all the work for you. Essentially, all you need to do is show up!
Almost literally, and our favorite venue, is Rockin’ Jump Winston-Salem which totally rocks! After all, it actually has a ROCK-climbing wall! Plus, there are tons of other attractions that fit nearly any personality.

Second, Rockin Jump provides great glowing evening parties during their After Dark festivities. In fact, it’s one of the few venues in the Triad that hosts diverse neon nighttime fun. During these sessions, enjoy additional party games for everyone. From Instagram contests and giveaways to dodge ball mini tournaments and raffles, it’s a blast! Having a party on a Friday or Saturday night includes the additional fun of the After Dark event! Lights dim, black lights and lasers flash and the music cranks up. The party atmosphere continues from 7 to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
