Bouncing and playing has always been a hit for kids of all ages and our parties make celebrating easy! Our indoor inflatable park offers private kids birthday parties in a dedicated section of our indoor playground. This allows families to relax & enjoy the party. The other area of our play space is open to the public to pay-to-play.
We make kids birthday parties fun & easy!
Cowabunga’s kids birthday parties are two hours long.
Our kids birthday parties follow a rotation through our rooms dedicated for our private parties. Whichever area you’re in, is completely private to your group! Other private parties may be in other rooms but you don’t intermingle.
This means friends play together without the distraction from strangers!
Enjoy your time with family & friends!
Kids love moving from room to room as they get to play on different equipment! Parents enjoy it as it keeps kids together playing with friends! Plus, our second private party gym can be a glow experience if you’d like!

Frequently Asked Party Questions ...
If you are hosting a public party or a private party (15 kids), we can not have pizza.
The town health department is no longer allowing us to partner with Andrea’s to provide hot, prepared food like pizza in our facility. For over five years, our family business was happy to support another local business in providing food for our parties. Due to the town orders, we CANNOT have any homecooked food or food from any other restaurants delivered. Prepackaged snacks and bakery-made cakes are still allowed and encouraged to bring in.
We have been working with the town for well over a year and a half on our new kitchen build out. Due to circumstances beyond our control, there continues to be delays. We hope our new kitchen will be ready for our guests in Winter 2022/23! Please remember we are a nut-free facility.
For both public & private parties, Cowabunga’s provides all white paper supplies, cups, silverware and napkins. Drinks, goody cups, balloons, decorations and food can be added to your party package for an additional charge.
Cowabunga’s allows you to bring the following items to your party. We ask that any decorations be put together.
- Decorations (assembled)
- Unopened themed or color paper goods
- Goody bags (nut free & assembled)
- Cake (nut free from licensed kitchen/bakery)
- Hoodsie cups
- Water bottles
- Individually portioned drinks
- Individually portioned, nut free snacks
Cowabunga’s does not allow home cooked food, food from other businesses or any food that contains nuts. The only exception to this rule is a nut free cake from a licensed, commercial bakery or supermarket.
We do not allow alcohol either.
- Theme packages & decorations
- Goody cups
- Character visits
We’re a cast of characters! Surprise your child with a special character visit during his/her party. Characters will drop in during your party for up to 20 minutes for pictures, interactions & more!
Character visits are recommended for private parties, as this allows dedicated time without distractions from other kids. Character visits can be done during your private play time or in the private cake room. Your party planner will talk through the options with you.
Princess & Superhero visits are extra special, but only done on a very limited basis at Cowabunga’s in Manchester. While we work really hard to staff these visits when requested, we have very limited staff options that fit the “look” of each character. Sometimes princesses will wear wigs, and characters may be required to wear masks during their character . Please inquire with the store manager about your special character visit.
We will contact you the Tuesday before your party to go over all the details of your party. During this time, you can order food, balloons, goody cups and add a character visit. All orders must be in by Thursday at 3 pm before your weekend party.
We ask that you bring your party supplies with you on the day of your party!
Public parties will be able to decorate the party pavilion at the the start time of your rental.
For private parties, we will have plenty of time to decorate while your guests bounce and play! Typically, your party pros will start decorating 40 minutes after the start of your private party. Since our private parties follow the same rotation, you may not have access to the cake room before then, as another party may be in there.
Typically we can not accommodate requests to come early, as we have other parties using the space before your party.
We work our magic & everything gets cleaned and sanitized between parties but doesn’t allow for time to set up early.
