Kids’ party ideas for young adventurers

Plan a party with a difference for your outdoorsy offspring and their friends with CIWW’s bespoke children’s party packages. All-weather friendly and highly customisable, the birthday party experiences we can create for your young ones are guaranteed to never be forgotten!

Choose from the following activities or create a bespoke party package with a combination of their favourites:

White Water Rafting Parties - £22.50-£25 per head for 6yrs+

Our White Water Rafting session will take kids seeking adventure on a wild ride, as they navigate through its twists, turns and big drops that are sure to ramp up the excitement.

Let your children ride the waves and test out their paddling skills with this thrilling watersports must-do! We lower the level of the white water for our White Water Rafting kids’ parties, so the experience is enjoyable for all. Each boat takes 6 kids and a trained instructor, who will navigate them through the waves – so if you don’t want to join them, then you don’t have to!

Stand Up Paddleboarding Parties - £25 per head for 12yrs+

Stand Up Paddleboarding combines some of the most thrilling features of canoeing and surfing, taking your kids out onto the flatwater on an oversized board.

A fantastic way to mix exercise with fun, the course will have your children canoe-style paddling around Cardiff Bay, building up their skills in the trendiest watersport activity around! No previous paddleboarding experience is required, and a paddleboarding party can be tailored to suit all abilities.

Indoor Wave Parties - £22.50-£25 per head for 107cm+

They’ll have a blast bodyboarding in tandem through the waves for an hour on our Flowrider wave machine! Not only is it great fun for all party guests, but also friends and family who can watch from our dedicated seated viewing area.

The ideal Indoor Wave party number is about 10 guests, to ensure that everyone has a good go! Maximum number of guests would be 12. 

Air Trail Parties - £10 per head

For kids who prefer monkey business to riding waves, Air Trail, our high ropes course, will provide the perfect challenge. Towering over the white water course, the steel and timber terrain will take your children on a fun, adventurous journey, as they snake through the Burma Bridge, Monkey Swing, Barrel Crawl and Zip Wire obstacles! Minimum height is 132cm (107cm+ if accompanied by an adult during the session).

This is just a small selection of the outdoor adventures we offer as part of our party packages. Browse our full range of kid-friendly activities and hand-pick the ones your children will love the most.

Catered kids’ party packages

For the perfect finishing touch to birthday parties for teens and children, let us take care of all the catering once they step out of the water.

Our partners, Just Perfect Catering, who manage the CIWW Oriel Café bar and terrace, are specialists in catering for children’s parties, so they’ll take care of the party food and drink while you sit back and relax. Situated on the first floor of CIWW, overlooking the course, the terrace is perfect for your post-activity party celebrations. Alternatively, our weather-proof dedicated party room will fit the bill on cooler days.

We offer a choice of hot and cold party food options to suit every budget and keep your party guests full and happy! Download our kids’ party leaflet for prices.
