Weekends are for parties…birthday parties, that is! Beginning on Friday nights and continuing through Sunday evenings, the KIDS FIRST pools are available for your child’s special event. These two-hour-long parties begin with an hour of private splash in the pool. Here, Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, family, and friends are invited to join in the fun. At a balmy 90 degrees and a very comfortable 55% humidity, you can be assured that the weather will be perfect for your guests.

Following your hour in the pool, your group will move into and enjoy the privacy of one of our large party rooms. You can decorate the room as you wish, and bring in any refreshments that you like. Most of our locations have negotiated discounts with local pizzerias so that you can enjoy the purchasing power that we receive when we do dozens of these parties each weekend. Games and gift-giving complete your child’s special day, and parents… just think… no clean-up!
