Style File: Cool Kid Parties
Bounce houses, clowns, magicians, you've been there, done that. When it comes to your child's birthday party, you've probably covered it all. In today's Style File, Seven's Belkys Nerey shows us the newest ways to throw a Cool Kid's Party.
WSVN -- You know the drill. You sing the same old song, eat the same old birthday cake. Not this year.
Get your kid's birthday party started with Games on the Go. It's a big old bus full of arcade games that comes right to your party.
Terry Shae: "We got the hottest games. Need for Speed, the Fast and Furious, Arctic Thunder, which is an awesome snow mobile racing game, Mrs. Pacman, Galaga."
Kids pile into the mobile arcade for hours of fun. It's tricked out with Air Conditioning and offers more than 200 games. You can even ask for specific games for your party. Everything is on free play, so the kids can play as often as they want.
Terry Shae: "We do a two hour birthday party for $600, half a day is $1000, and a full day is $1400."
And good luck tearing them away.
Andrea: "Yeah, this is really fun!"
Seth Prezant: "Do you guys want to see me put a scorpion in my nose? Yeah!"
Another way to get a big squeal of excitement at your birthday bash, invite bug master Seth Prezant.
Seth Prezant: "It's creepy, it's crawly, it's everything that kids love."
During his creepy crawly adventure show, Seth gives kids the chance to hold all sorts of bugs and snakes. They're all harmless of course.
Seth Prezant: "We bring different types of roaches and beetles, millipedes, praying mantis."
It's so fun. The kids don't even know how much they're learning.
Seth Prezant: "They're learning about how bugs impact the earth, and why they're important."
Carter: "The bearded dragons, because they're big, and they look creepy, but they're not."
Madison: "It was fun."
Brennan: "The bug that can look like a leaf."
Each child also gets a bug house and bug catcher, and Seth leads them on a real bug hunt.
Katya: "The kids really seemed to enjoy it, and it was very different."
Lin Nash: "I don't like this stuff, but if they're happy then it's worth it."
Seth Prezant: "She's going to come over and give you a little kiss."
Parents might be scared, but the kids will be bugging you for more.
Seth Prezant: "Have a creepy crawly birthday!"
Belkys Nerey: "For those of you who like the Fear Factor thing, Seth can customize the show and even add edible bugs to the mix. The parties cost about $280."
