Indoor Party Venues in Gauteng

Indoor venues are popping all over the region in Gauteng. They’re popular, easy and carry half the stress of travelling, setting up and watching the weather report. 

City Slickers- party venues in the cities

Busy Mums and Dads often don’t have the time to plan a party, forget travelling out of the city to greener pastures. Most shopping malls and restaurants are home to some of the best indoor party venues for kids. These range from laser tag, gaming arcades, to ski decks and more. Ideally convenient for travel and catering purposes, as well as time constraints, and the risk of non-refundable activities should the weather behave badly, this can be the “all under one roof” solution for last minute parties. In fact, urban dwellers of Johannesburg and Pretoria may prefer the lights, technology, scientific discoveries, wifi connectivity and warmth these venues offer.

Don’t be fooled though- there’s just as much action indoors as there is outdoors- jumping, skiing, driving, virtual reality, shooting, golf,  cooking, baking, arts and crafts – there’s room for itchy fingers, enquiring minds and even those couch potatoes.

On the Outskirts- party venues in surrounding suburbs

Spacious and calm, the outlying areas to the cities offer just as many indoor kids party venues as the City. Without driving into the fumes and traffic congestion, residents of the East Rand, West Rand and the Vaal will also find suitable venues that ward off the rain or intense heat a stone’s throw away. Of course these venues offer all the conveniences of those in the city: catering, entertainment, and fun, fun, fun! No need to keep a tab on weather predictions, no need to lug shade, gazebos, sunblock and jackets ” just in case”. It’s pretty much book, arrive, eat, socialise and literally have a blast!

Take a ride on the local fire truck, jump on a giant inflatable or tough trampoline, paint, draw, or throw a ball, you may find there’s more to do at home than the local park. City lights are but an illusion- look close, you have it all! Shrieks, shrills, smiles and smirks: put a roof on it! Remember, what happens at the party stays at the party “all undercover, Mum.”
