Planning a special birthday party can be really difficult, especially if you want to do something out of the ordinary for the event. Sure, you can round up a few friends and go bar-hopping, but if you’re looking for something extra special and truly memorable, then you might want to consider one of these great birthday party ideas for adults. From escape rooms to scavenger hunts and even an interactive murder mystery dinner, there are plenty of fun ways to celebrate your birthday with a little creativity.
Be A Scavenger
Who doesn’t love a good scavenger hunt? Combine some well thought-out clues with a few of your best pals and you have the recipe for a fantastic celebration. The folks at Watson Adventures can even take care of all the work for you. They’ll put together a fun hunt that incorporates clues and history of some of your favorite Denver locations, like the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Lo-Do or the Denver Art Museum. There are so many different types of hunts that there is sure to be something for everyone. Be sure to invite people with a variety of skills, as you’ll need all your best sleuths on the job to help you through this interactive and engaging scavenger hunt.
Go Golfing (Sort of)
If you’ve never tried Top Golf, you’ll be glad to know there is a location just south of Denver in Centennial. Top Golf is like bowling meets golf. Instead of playing out on a giant course, you golf in a bay and you hit micro-chipped golf balls into targets to score points. It’s ridiculously fun for all ages and all skill levels, as the machines do all the work keeping score and helping you through the game. The average came is much like bowling, in that it runs about an hour to 90 minutes or so, and is perfect for up to six people. If you have larger groups, then plan for a few bays and make a competition out of it.
Escape From It All
Escape rooms are all the rage these days, and why shouldn’t they be? It’s a great way to work with your friends to solve a complex problem together, all while having fun in an interactive and creative setting. There are a lot of fun escape rooms in Denver to choose from and the Denver Escape Room is one of the best. There are lots of different themed rooms to check out, including one called “The Crimson Storm” which has you locked in a pirate ship searching for hidden treasure or “Grim Stacks” which takes place in a mysterious bookshop while you work to rescue a magical creature. Book early and plan ahead for a group of just about any size so you can split up and see who can solve the room first!
Solve A Murder
For small parties or even large ones, The Dinner Detective is the perfect solution to all your party planning needs. As you arrive, you’ll assume an identity and you’ll begin to interrogate everyone – even your friends. As you dine on a delicious four-course plated dinner, the murder will happen somewhere in the room. Two Detectives will burst onto the scene to help guide you through the case. And as you enjoy course after course, you’ll get more clues to help you figure out who committed the crime. Be sure to be very thorough, because the killer can be anywhere, even at your table. Plus, if you’re looking for a truly special party event, you can book a private party with the Dinner Detective – they’ll provide all the actors, clues and everything you need for a truly memorable (and hilarious) experience.
