Party Planning Ideas for 2023

Here in Kansas City, every season is party planning season! It doesn’t have to be a special occasion to host a fun and totally unique gathering with your loved ones, colleagues or friends. So as you’re starting to plan for events both big and small, here are a few ideas for getting creative and making really magical memories with your friends and family. Let’s get ready for party planning in 2023!

Summer in January

Once the holiday season wraps up, many of us start to feel those winter blues keeping us down. We’re all eager for sunny summer days! While we can’t change the weather, we can do the next best thing: help you create a Summer in January party with our new Slippity Slide!

This wet/dry slide is flexible for both indoor and outdoor use and is a blast with or without the water! So if you don’t have an indoor space that can handle a waterslide, just run it dry and have an imaginary pool party, complete with sno-cones!

Ready to take things to a new level? Guests will love the High Voltage Dual Slide, which features multiple slide lanes and is a great fit for indoor and outdoor events.  

Challenge Accepted

Raise your hand if you’re competitive! If your hand is in the air, you’re going to love this next Kansas City party planning idea. Fill your event space with obstacle courses and carnival games to get the competition rolling. This party idea is great for kicking off or wrapping up a sports season, or as a super elaborate birthday party for your little athlete. It’s ideal for spring, summer and fall.

Our new X Factor Obstacle course is perfect for allowing kids to race to the finish while making supervision safe and easy with both entrances and exits on the front. On your marks, get set, GO!

Even the younger kiddos can get in on the obstacle course fun with the Rescue Squad inflatable game! This inflatable game has a rescue worker theme, including police, fire and emergency service workers and their vehicles. Kids will love the three-dimensional ambulance climb and slide, a 3-D police cruiser with pop-up obstacles and 3-D fireman and nurse pop-ups!

Another fun challenge for younger guests is the Lego Combo inflatable. Jumping area? Basketball hoop? Slide? Check, check and check! This brightly-colored inflatable creates a great space for creating great memories!

Backyard Waterpark

Once we finally roll into summer days, turn your backyard or outdoor event space into a waterpark for a day by filling it with inflatable waterslides! You know we’ve got your waterslide needs covered, but here are a couple of new slides you won’t want to skip.

The Dual Wave Wet/Dry Slide is perfect for large events and parties because it allows two people to slide at once, saving you space and keeping the fun going!

Want to add something a little different to the mix? Our new Surf N Slide is just what the fun times ordered! It’s all the fun of the classic slip n’ slide — made bigger, better, and safer.

Casino Royale

If you like to throw parties with a really distinctive theme, might we suggest creating a casino that really wins over your guests? We have everything you need — from card tables to slot machines (and even casino dealers!) — to simplify your Kansas City party planning! 

If the party will be multi-generational, add some carnival games for the kids to enjoy. For 2023, we added three new games that are perfect for all ages:

Of course, we know that not every celebration calls for going all-out with a massive guest list and huge rentals. Here are some ideas for cozier parties with close friends and family:
