Have A Celebration With A Difference On A Children’s Party Bus
Throwing a children’s party can be both stressful and overwhelming.
You want to make sure it ticks all the boxes but most of all you want to make sure that your child has the best time and a party to remember.
Thinking of something new and original can be difficult or expensive, but it doesn’t have to be.
We’ve investigated the fun and colourful world of children’s party buses to bring you the best selection in London.
A party on a bus isn’t only reserved for adults on hen and stag weekends, there are a whole host of different options to help you throw an original and stress-free party right on your doorstep.
Why use a Children’s Party Bus?
There are many benefits to having a bus party, it can go ahead whatever the weather, the children are safe and contained and free to let off steam with no mess to clear up!
You don’t need to feel as though you are sharing your party space with anyone else because it’s your own exclusive celebration.
You can find a few different styles and themes of party bus available but many of them are housed on old double-decker buses which have taken on a new lease of life.
Imagine the look on your child’s face when a big bus turns up and they get to play and hang out with all their friends inside!
You can bring the party directly to your door or to a location of your choice as an extension of a bigger celebration.
Facilities offered on a children’s party bus vary and come with different add-ons to build the perfect celebration to suit you.
Many companies will offer party games, catering and party bags in their packages so there’s even less for you to organise.
If you are interested in a children’s party bus in London, check out these popular options for fun bus hire that we’ve picked out for you.
The Soft Play Party
If you have younger children then this will be the kind of entertainment they will love.
Not just your average soft play, this one comes on four wheels and can turn up outside your house.
They are growing in popularity but we’ve chosen two of the top party buses available in the London area with great reviews.
The fantastic soft play Banana Bus has all the four-wheeled fun you could ever want. A spacious converted double-decker, it had a previous life as the 452 between Kensal Green and Vauxhall.
The bus comes complete with a ball pool, slides, spooky cave, monkey bars, disco lights and your birthday announcement on the destination board!
Parties start at £290 for 90 minutes of fun and you can download free Banana Bus themed invitations.
Jungle Bus will provide a full-sized double-decker bus, full of climbing nets, piano mat, tunnels and much more.
The jungle play bus comes in a variety of packages from 2-hour hire of the bus, to adding party bags or hiring out for a whole day.
There are a number of options for you to choose from and they will travel outward from London to Essex, Buckinghamshire, Middlesex, Surrey and more.
Hire of the bus for two hours is £299 depending on your required location and party bags can be added for £2 per child.
The Gaming Party
Party buses can often be associated with younger children; but gaming parties are gaining popularity too and it gives older children and teenagers the chance to experience a different kind of party.
They can game with lots of friends at the same time which they perhaps otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to do.
Sometimes coming up with party ideas for children over the age of 10 can be tricky, with minimal options aimed at their age bracket, so this is an original idea that is sure to go down well.
If you are looking to organise something a bit different for teenagers then Techzone might be a great option.
If your children are into gaming then why not consider this gaming party. Not on a double-decker bus, but on various trucks and trailers, these niche gaming parties can still come to you.
The various vehicles have equipment for up to 15 to play at once on a choice of consoles, including Xbox ONE/360, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Wii/U/Switch.
Vehicles also feature huge widescreen TVs to show age appropriate films and a surround sound system with a large song selection.
Packages start at £175 for 90 minutes.
Gamewagon parties can be held almost anywhere.
Aimed at children 7 year olds and upwards they offer the simplest option of a specially built video game wagon outside your house, however, for bigger parties they can also set up their equipment at a party venue of your choice.
They will work with you to make sure everything is safe and that the games played are ones you approve.
Game Wagon offers the service of a GEM (Game Experience Manager) who will control the whole experience. They are fully trained in all the equipment and will make sure the children have a great time and that the party can be enjoyed by all.
Contact Game Wagon for prices and to book.
A children’s party bus makes for an extra special birthday event for your kid’s party, it’s something they will talk about with their friends for a long time afterwards.
Having the entertainment sorted takes the stress and pressure away from you to organise everything and offers the convenience of them coming to you so you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home.
You can be secure in the knowledge that the children are contained in one place to have fun and create a mess in a place other than your home!
