End of Soccer Season Party Ideas - Frisco
I searched, but the most recent posts I saw were from 2008.
My son's soccer team is deciding on what to do for our end-of-season party. All boys, 4yo, in Frisco. The coach's wife mentioned GattiTown and I really had no other suggestions (other than Chuck E Cheese). We'll be doing it right after the last game, which is at 12, so it will about 1:30 or 2. So not really lunchtime, and I figure the kids will want to play games and such.

Frisco has a Main Event at the Tollway and Main Street. They have private party rooms for cake and such plus a snack bar for anyone else that didn't have a real lunch before the game. 12-years is approaching too old for C-E-Cheese.

There's also Strikz (Preston & Lebanon) for an alternative... both Strikz & Main Event will do the bumper guards on the bowling lanes. And give them pre-loaded cards to play the games. Pizza & snacks, etc.
You could also look into Pump-it-Up right there behind Pizza Hut park. (That always gives me the willies... I hear the knocks of heads coming together when I think of that place, but I know how much kids love it!)
Here's a thought - if it's coming up soon you could have a pumpkin decorating party in someone's backyard. All of the parents will be there, right? Get everyone their own pumpkin & a large trash bag - one set of "tools" - some stencils (printed free online), and some dollar store accessories... Let the moms know in advance whats going on so they can bring their ideas & anything from home that they want to decorate with.
Set everyone free for a pumpkin carving "CONTEST" - - - just watch how competitive things get from there.
We've done this with our friends and it ends up being one hot mess! AND FUN FUN FUN!
Good luck - C.

Main Event has packages(bowling/pizza/drink/games). The kids may be too young for Laser Tag. I'm not sure of the age limit on that, but Main Event is right in Frisco and the kids always have a blast. We have had several soccer parties there. Also, GattiTown is a ripoff. It is way over priced and you have to buy the buffet to get in. Chuck E Cheese is good, but a little far to drive. Each player usually spends about $13 for Main Event.

why not have it at a park or someones house and play games and possibly rent a bounce house. Have a soccer cake made and order a party platter of sandwiches and waters or capri suns. Oh and a face painter would be fun! Which I happen to be. Teehee. I'm with Dallas Face Painters and we have really really good rates. If your interested in booking us for your party you can give me a call. I'll person mssg my cell # to you. Oh and just FYI we are the official face painters for FC Dallas soccer team. We paint at all their games so you might have seen our work if you have been to a game. Thanks!
