We found out that there has to be one adult to every two under-8s physically in the pool for the duration of the party, as H is one of the oldest in the year, I figured that this would put parents off and so we encouraged him to think of something else and told him we'd have a pool party next year.
One afternoon H brought home a copy of Primary Times in his schoolbag and spotted an advert for a Go-Kart Party, so he asked if I would find out about them. I emailed and got a prompt reply from Gaynor & Mark who gave me all the relevant information and pricing, and the Mister & I agreed on a Go-Kart party for 12 for early December at a cost of £165 and got it all booked up.
The Go-Kart party offers a full experience with optional extras of medals, party bags and catering and is suitable for kids between the ages of 4 & 10 years. We opted for medals for our guests, and everything else was included (venue hire, invitations, certificates & a trophy for the birthday boy).
It was lovely & straightforward to book & pay and we did it all online via BACS and email which meant that all I had to do on the day of the party was get us there, and enjoy the day.
The Mister & I got up and finished packing H's Cars 2 party bags with Cars themed favour packs (consisting of Maze Puzzles, Disc Shooters, Siren Whistles and Mini Flags), gummi sweets & cake pops that I had made to save having to cut a cake, and lunch boxes ready to hand out to his guests after the party (as we had opted not to hire a party room).
The lunch boxes are really sturdy and had plenty of space for the potato snack, wrap, cheese, drink, cucumber batons & mini roll that we put in. We then got H, L & E ready & off we went!
Mark & Gaynor were fun, patient and simply lovely with the children, speaking to them individually and keeping them involved at every moment.
Everyone was included and made to feel a part of the activities even when they weren't racing, I honestly cannot praise them enough.
The children each received a (high quality, not plastic!) medal & personalised certificate at the end of the party and H received his trophy and completed a victory lap around the track on his own, my boys haven't stopped talking about it since we got home!
It was a wonderful party experience and I had some lovely comments from parents & the kids as they were leaving, everyone said how much fun it was and what a good time they had had. At school H's friends have told him that it was the best party they've ever been to!
The party was a huge success and I wouldn't hesitate to book them again, it's no wonder that they were shortlisted as a regional finalist for the NetMums Best Party Entertainer award. They really made H's day special and I would highly recommend them, it was absolutely worth every single penny.
We received complimentary Cars 2 themed partyware from Delights UK for review purposes. The Go-Kart Party was paid for out of my own pocket in its entirety. The views shared are my own personal & honest opinions and written in my own words. All links are no-follow.
