Birthday Parties

We leave the cake and decorations to you and then do what we do best-launch, shoot, fling and Fly!

We provide pre-party access to our facility at no charge so that you can decorate and set up as needed. Our party room accommodates up to 25 people with seating and tables. We also have a refrigerator, freezer, toaster, oven, and microwave for your serving convenience. Papa John’s in Palomar delivers to Newton’s Attic and will give you the school price of 50% off a large, single-topping pizza.

Newton’s Attic has both indoor and outdoor space for birthday parties and also offers outdoor activities throughout the winter. Please ask your guests to dress warmly if you choose an outdoor activity.

If your child’s friends have never been to Newton’s Attic, it will be a true treat for them.

How it Works

We provides hosting, activity staff, fun and unusual activities, and private party space for your party. Our parties are most appropriate for ages 7 to 14, but adults love our birthday parties, too! All of the activity options are appropriate for this age range.

Newton’s Attic parties are private, so you will not be sharing space with another group. You provide your own hospitality and are welcome to arrive 30 minutes (more by request) before the party start time to set up and decorate as you wish. Parents are welcome to drop their children or stay and enjoy the fun. We do not charge for adults (unless it is an adult party) or non-participating siblings. Because you provide your own hospitality, our parties are “adult friendly” in terms of the beverages you choose to serve. Your Newton’s Attic host will help you greet guests and will kick off the party when it comes time to start the activities. Our host or activity staff can help you set up and will take care of cleanup after the event.

Our parties range in price from $250 up to about $475 depending on the size of the group and the number and type of activities selected. The base price of the party package is for the total number of participating children. The $200, $250 and $300 base-price packages are for the full group, not per person, and do not include activities, which are priced separately a la carte. For example, if you have a party of 9 to 14 kids making rockets, the base price is $250 and the activity price is $50 for a total of $300.

Papa Johns in Palomar offers our guests the “school” discount they share with us. You can take advantage of this discount by following the instructions below:

Pizza Discount Instructions

1. call the Papa Johns in Palomar at 859-223-9500 and press Option 5 to get connected to the local store. Otherwise, you will end up at a call center that doesn’t know about our discount.

2. Tell them you are a guest of Newton’s Attic and give them our office phone number (859-368-7334) to pull up our discount and delivery address. Ask them to verify the $8.00 price (sometimes they miss the discount) for a large, single-topping pizza. This does not include a one-time $3.50 order delivery fee or the tip for the driver, both of which are extra. You can avoid both of those by picking them up if you will be starting the party with pizza.

3. So that you don’t have to second guess how busy they are or how long it will take them to deliver, you might do a “plan ahead” order earlier in the day. If you do this, call at least a hour ahead and give them a 15 minute window for delivery (anytime between X and no later than Y) so that you are not waiting for the pizza. We can help you figure out what time that should be depending on other details.

Parties are custom-scheduled at a time of our mutual availability, including evenings and weekends throughout the year. We do not offer Saturday or Sunday parties during our busy summer camp season June through mid-August, but Friday evening parties are very popular during this time of year.

We recommend selecting one or two activities depending on the size and age of the group, your child’s interests, and your budget (find activity descriptions, pictures and some video by clicking on the activities below).

Rubberband Crossbows and Slime are the only two activities that are always and entirely indoors. SPINtron is indoors in the winter and in a covered pavilion spring through fall, so attendees should dress for the weather if SPINtron will be outdoors. Rockets are made with paper and cardboard and launched with compressed air. The rockets are made inside (about 20 to 30 minutes) and launched outside (about 10 minutes). Rockets can be launched from a covered area in a light rain, but would not be recommended in stormy weather. We do not recommend Rubberband Crossbows for groups of more than 12 children. Kiddos get to keep the rockets, rubber band crossbows and slime they make. Children use power tools when making rubber band crossbows.

Outdoor Activities

Indoor Activitites

Are you brave enough?  Sling shot down a 125′ long track.  A mini roller-coaster in our front lawn.

Design and build a custom model rocket and then 3-2-1 launch! Watch as it soars up to 300 feet.

AKA the Pumpkin Chunker.  Designed in the form of a medieval siege engine, the Ballista can shoot a pumpkin over 400 feet.  You supply the squash – we supply the launch!

This fun and exciting NASA-inspired ride flips, spins, and rolls, simulating the motion of a tumbling space capsule.

Build your own 10″x10″ handheld, wooden Rubber Band Crossbow and then test your skills on targets.  You will get to use tools in the shop and everyone gets to keep what they make.
