Parties, like pie-eating contests, are not considered successful unless everyone leaves smelling permanently of lemon meringue. Leave the clean up and party planning to professionals with today’s Groupon: for $750, you get a 2.5-hour Rockstar party package for up to 40 children at Space Odyssey USA (a $1,500 value) in Englewood. Parties can be scheduled on Thursday and Friday afternoons, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
Space Odyssey USA is dedicated to curing chronic boredom among children, teens, and adults with the use of its expansive event space. Rockstar children are given name tags and wristbands emblazoned with their group’s name and, just like actual rock stars, are supervised for the duration of the party by staff members. The perks of the party package begin with a personalized menu and a posh VIP room adorned with sleek white leather couches. Fun-finders can divide their time between Space’s myriad activities. A heavenly host of black lights and LED disco flickers flank lanes in the glow-in-the-dark bowling alley, turning white pins into a tapestry of about-to-supernova cosmos. An arcade features an array of fresh titles to tire out hyperactive thumbs, and obstacle-laden laser tag and paint-free paintball arenas offer unfettered exhilaration for kids 12 and up. Traditional sports are also offered to sweat-seeking partiers, in addition to a three-level indoor playground.
Space Odyssey USA
What could be better for a kid's birthday party than a fully-stocked arcade? Maybe a laser tag arena. Or maybe a fancy dining hall with gourmet catering. Or maybe all three in the same place. Established in 2005, Space Odyssey USA makes children's dreams come true with thrilling activities for all ages. A futuristic warehouse space lit by cosmic, neon-colored spheres, Space Odyssey USA offers video games old and new, from the adrenaline-pumping racing game Nitro to a competitive take on an old classic in four-player Pacman Battle Royale. And then there's birthday activities such as an indoor train, glow-in-the-dark sports, and elaborate floral arrangements so that older kids can enjoy a touch of class and younger ones can enjoy their favorite activity: counting small objects.
