Kids Party Venues in Cape Town

For many moms including myself, the birthday party planning is as much fun of the actual event. Choosing the theme, finding the venue and organising the party makes the days if not weeks, leading up to the party as exciting as the celebration itself. The party doesn’t need to be extravagant, the birthday child will be happy as long as they are made to feel special. However, even a simple party requires planning, and the sooner you get started, the easier the process becomes as there are fewer ‘last minute’ issues to sort out.

This list has been compiled to summarise a few kids party venue options in Cape Town. I have tried to get venues from various locations and suburbs in and around Cape Town as well as various budget options. My personal preference is always a venue at which self catering is allowed, but I have also added some which do not allow self catering.

Bugz Playpark

I used the venue for my sons 3rd birthday party, and have attended a few parties here as well. Although it doesn’t allow you to bring in any food, and platters are a bit pricey, I would still recommend it due to the amount of activities available for the kids as well as for the friendly and helpful staff. There are a variety of indoor and outdoor party venues  to choose from.

Iziko Planetarium and Museum


I hired the  venue for my daughters 8th birthday party. I chose it due to the fact that it’s an indoor venue, as my daughter’s birthday is in the heart of winter! Also, it allows self catering, is reasonably priced and offers ‘educational’ entertainment for kids. Read more about it here.

  • Area : 25 Queen Victoria Street, Cape Town

The Blue Train Park

This is a beautiful outdoor venue less than 25 m from the Atlantic Ocean, with Lionshead, Signal Hill and Table Mountain in the background. Definitely a favourite, and it’s worthwhile checking them  out if you are planning a party in the warmer spring or summer months.

“Rush is an indoor extreme Trampoline Park with 1500-2500 square meters of adventure, excitement, fun and challenges.” – Rush Webpage

I have not attended a party at this venue yet, but it comes highly recommended by many moms and is worth checking out.

  • Is self catering allowed: No

Ottery Barnyard

I attended a party at the venue in December 2015. The staff were extremely friendly and the kids loved interacting with the animals.
