Make sure that the fun activities venue you choose includes bumper cars for kids, and that all of the kids attending the party meet the height and/or weight requirements (for example, at iT’Z, everyone needs to be at least 44” tall to ride the bumper cars).

You also want to make sure that the place you choose offers birthday event packages that include multiple activities. For example, at iT’Z, our birthday event packages include access to our attractions (including the bumper cars) and redemption tickets to be used toward any of our fun activities, from laser tag to, yes, bumper cars. Then you can plan an incredible party that includes the excitement and fun of riding bumper cars.

Bring your own themed cake to the bumper car birthday party.

Many birthday party places will allow you to bring your own cake, especially if you choose to use a birthday event package. Put this benefit to good use by bringing a themed cake to your bumper cars birthday party.

There are lots of options for turning a cake into a miniature bumper car arena. From complex designs including fondant bumper cars and arenas (that you might want to hire out to a professional cake decorator) to the simple DIY hack of placing mini racing cars on a frosting bumper car arena, you can create any look you want.

A snazzy themed cake will make a welcome addition to the bumper car fun the kids are having at the party, and will help you to tie the whole party together with a single theme that runs throughout.

Turn your decorations into a bumper car birthday party theme.

If you want to go all out with a bumper cars for kids birthday party, consider turning your streamers, balloons, and other decorations into a bumper car theme. For these decorations, anything car themed should work to spark your kids’ imaginations. For example, purchase paper plates decorated with cars, or bring car themed balloons.

You can even build your own mini bumper cars with Legos, remote controlled chassis, and/or cardboard. Creating these decorations can become one activity in your bumper cars for kids party. Or, you can put them together beforehand and bring them to the birthday party place to delight the kids as soon as they arrive.
