Planning the same old birthday party each year can become boring. Not only for you, but also for your guests. Everyone chooses to have a night out or go for a meal in a fancy restaurant to celebrate. Maybe it’s time to mix things up a bit and do something completely different? There are so many cool birthday party ideas, most of which are fun and extremely memorable. Organise one of these ideas and your friends will be talking about your party for a long time to come! There might not even need to be a hangover either!
Murder Mystery Night
There are different ways to plan a murder mystery night. You can buy games that you set up at home. Each game has a story that your group will have to play out through the night to find out which character is the murderer. Alternatively, you can book places at a professionally organised murder mystery event. These are often hosted in historical buildings, such as stately homes. Throughout the night, you will get the chance to interact with actors to try and find the culprit.
If you love being active in the outdoors, then paintballing will be right up your street! Popular Paintball Sites often get booked up well in advance, so organise your birthday party in plenty of time to guarantee a spot. When you arrive, your group will be given safety outfits to wear, and then split up into two teams. You’ll then have to go into hiding and try to hunt down the other team! Paintballing is a lot of fun and you’re guaranteed to have some laughs!
European City Trip
If you have the money, organise a weekend away for you and a couple of very close friends. European breaks are very affordable these days, thanks to budget airlines. If you want, you could turn this into a romantic birthday trip and head to Paris with your partner. Other fantastic destinations include historic Prague and chic Copenhagen. These are both popular destinations for large groups.
Birthdays are times for pampering, so what better way to celebrate than taking a trip to your local spa? If you want to keep within a budget, you can simply spend a couple of hours in the sauna. But for those who want to push the boat out, booking an entire weekend at a spa hotel is a great birthday treat. You can lounge by the pool and treat yourself to a variety of massages and beauty treatments.
If you like the idea of laser tag, but don’t fancy getting covered in paint, you could try out laser tag. It is just like paintball, except it takes place indoors. Also, instead of shooting paint at each other, you have laser guns. Sci-fi fans will especially enjoy laser tag as the setting is usually very futuristic!
Make sure this year’s birthday stands out from all the rest by planning one of these unforgettable parties. Your friends may even like the idea so much; they’ll swap their birthday nights out for one of these cool activities too!
