Not Your Average Sweet 16

Not Your Average Sweet 16

Turning 16 is an exciting time—you will be eligible for your driver’s license, college is getting closer, and your 16th birthday is a great excuse to spend a fun evening celebrating with your closest friends. Instead of throwing a run-of-the-mill 16th birthday party at home, consider these creative ideas:

Get Your Heart Racing at EscapeWorks

Bring your group of up to 8 friends to EscapeWorks for an exciting time trying to escape from the best escape room in Denver. Work together with your friends to figure out puzzles and clues in order to escape from the room within the hour time limit. You will find a variety of clues in the room, with some leading to more clues, others helping you escape, and some even revealing hidden rooms.

You get your choice of three cool themed escape rooms: The Big Game (perfect for Broncos fans), Egyptian Tomb, or Casino Heist. Why not make things even more fun by having your friends dress up in costumes to match your chosen theme?

Get the Adrenaline Flowing at iFly

iFly offers indoor skydiving for adrenaline junkies who want to try flying in a less scary environment than traditional skydiving. Indoor skydiving offers the fun of flight without having to jump out of an airplane. You will start with a class on safety and skydiving techniques and then each of you will take turns skydiving inside a vertical wind tunnel. The room where you skydive is surrounded by windows, which will lead to some great Instagram photo opportunities for your group.

Get Dressed up and Hit up Union Station

Ever since Denver’s century-old train station was renovated a few years ago and became host to several excellent restaurants, it has become the perfect place to have a classy and special birthday dinner. Restaurants at Union Station include Stoic and Genuine and The Kitchen Next Door. If a nice sit down dinner is out of your budget, your group can still get dressed up and enjoy ice cream and coffee at Milkbox IceCreamery and PigTrain Coffee. Then, find a spot to sit and people watch while you catch up with your friends.

A Day at the Nature and Science Museum

Denver’s renowned Nature and Science museum is centrally located and a great way to spend an interesting and fun day with your friends. Learn about everything from valuable gemstones to Egyptian mummies, to dinosaurs at the well-designed exhibits. Then, check out an IMAX movie, visit the planetarium, and grab lunch at the on-site cafe and restaurant. If you grew up in Denver you probably have fond memories of visiting the Nature and Science museum on field trips, so why not pretend you’re a kid again and explore with your friends?

By using a little creativity, you can easily plan a Sweet 16 birthday party that your friends will truly remember. If you really want to go all out, combine two or more of these experiences for the ultimate birthday party.
