As moms, one of the things we juggle (on top of everything else) is planning birthday parties around Columbia for our children each year. At Columbia SC Moms Blog, we want to make that task easier for you by bringing you our Guide to Columbia Birthday Parties! We hope this guide will help you make your child’s birthday truly memorable at one of these awesome locations around Columbia.
A special thanks goes out to all of the sponsors who helped make this guide possible. If you would like your business included in this guide, let’s chat.
The Ausome Gym
We play our way through every birthday party at The Ausome Gym! We host parties any day of the week. Parties are an hour and a half in length, typically broken up into an hour of play and half an hour for the ‘party’ portion. The Ausome Gym offers multiple rooms to play in and a large open gym area for all friends. You’ll find a friend size ball pit, gel squares floor, BEAM interactive projectors, swings, bubble tubes, traverse climbing wall, climbing dome, seesaw air plane, crash mat, and so much more! The Ausome Gym also features a quiet room for sensory overloaded friends. You’ll get a separate party room just for you and your guests, which you are welcome to decorate. There are no food or drink restrictions, however, we do not allow pinatas or confetti. The Ausome Gym has plenty of outlets, easy side door entrance without any stairs, and a full size fridge and freezer available if needed. Additional time may be added for $50 per half hour, or add extra friends for $7 each. A $50 deposit is required to hold your spot, with the remaining balance being due at the party. You can book by yourself online using our website, feel free to stop by any of our business hours to tour, or give us a call to reserve your party today!
