Happy birthdays that are a “snap” to plan!

At Snapology, we provide a fun, interactive birthday celebration for your guest of honor, and an effortless, stress-free plan for you.

All you need to do is choose your location and theme, send the invites and show up with the cake.

We take care of ALL of the rest (including loading up the gifts in your car!).

We even give a 2-Hour Play Pass to each of your guests, completely free (a $29 value!)

Birthday planning has never been this easy.

Snapology hosted an awesome birthday party for my 7-year old. The kids loved building a unicorn kitty and its kingdom! We had so much fun and I definitely recommend Snapology to anybody who wants to have an event where the kids stay interacting with each other.

We recently held a 6th birthday part at Snapology and it was a big hit! We had a large age range and none of the kids were bored. Becka was very responsive and helpful during the planning stages, and our hosts were great during the party! My kids loved it and can't wait to go back. Thank you, Snapology!

With 6 party formats and over 40 themes to choose from, we’re sure to make your Guest of Honor feel extra special!

    How far in advance do I need to reserve a spot?

    We recommend that you reserve your party as far in advance as possible.  Party spaces book fast, especially during the colder months.

    One of the best things about Snapology is its wide appeal to children of all ages. We host parties for children from 4 years old to 14 years old. (Parents of all ages love them too!)
