So your child’s birthday is fast approaching, and they’re asking what they’ll be doing for their big birthday party. If your kids is more of an active type, you may be wondering how to give them a birthday party to remember.

Kids of all ages love our birthday parties at Rock and Rapid Adventures. We offer a range of exciting birthday activities, from rock climbing to coasteering. If you’re looking for birthday party ideas that are a little different, and will also help your child and their friends build essential skills, keep reading for our top three suggestions for adventure birthday parties in Devon!

Climbing party for kids

For kids that are full of energy, rock climbing is the perfect activity for a birthday party. But don’t worry – you don’t have to hike to some unknown rock face in the middle of the North Devon countryside! With us, you can enjoy all of the comforts of an indoor kids’ party whilst the kids get their taste of adventure!

A climbing party is a fun way to get kids trying out a new activity and working together to develop new skills. We are one of the top birthday party venues in North Devon for adventurous kids, who love feeling the thrill of climbing high off the ground, learning all of the moves and techniques that it takes to become a climber. Kids will be able to climb on both the top ropes and in our bouldering cave under the expert supervision of our professional instructors.

We offer both one hour and two hour climbing birthday parties for children. One hour parties cost just £13.50 per person, whilst two hour parties cost £20 and must be booked for a minimum of six children. For an additional £4 per child, you can enjoy a tasty lunch of pizza or chicken nuggets and chips, plus a free slush puppy!

Alternatively, you could book our balcony area for just £10, where you can eat a picnic lunch overlooking the climbing wall. If you’d like to bring a cake and decorations, you are more than welcome to do so – just arrive a little in advance to set it all up! Of course, if any of your group have any dietary requirements, just let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Better yet, groups of any size from 2 to 27 children and adults can join in the party\!

Low ropes parties

If you opt for a two-hour party, your child and their friends will also have the opportunity to try out our outdoor low ropes course! As long as the weather is on our side, we will head out to the low ropes to climb, balance and swing our way through our leafy outdoor area.

From traversing across tyres to tiptoeing across ropes and swinging from ropes, this is an awesome experience for kids of any age to participate in. Low ropes are a brilliant group activity, as every child will cheer each other on, either playing individually or banding together for stimulating group challenges.

Whilst our expert instructors take care of the fun and madness, you can simply sit back with a  coffee from our fantastic on-site cafe!

Coasteering birthday activities

When it comes to unique birthday party activities, it doesn’t get much more exciting than coasteering in Devon! Kids aged 12 and above will relish the opportunity to get out on the coast, scrambling, climbing and jumping in the waves.

Book in a birthday party group and you will be taken coasteering by one of our experienced multi-activity instructors. The kids will learn how to safely climb over rock pools, jump and swim in the water. Coasteering combines aspects of sea-level traversing, climbing and wild swimming, making it the perfect exhilarating activity for kids in search of a thrill!

One thing’s for sure – book your child a coasteering party and they’re sure to remember this incredible day for the rest of their lives (and so will their friends!) Contact us to discuss the arrangements for your party – including bringing a picnic lunch – and we will be more than happy to help you plan the perfect birthday party!
