Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council consisting of local Marple and Newtown parents, take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
This week's question:
Last year I asked about birthday party venues, but this year I'm looking for something very particular: arcade games. Does anyone have any suggestions on where we can go for a six year olds birthday party that has an arcade?
Answer from Chris (dad of 1): We've done the Winner's Circle multiple times for both birthday parties and sports league parties. Only warning: make sure you have some activities that are non-arcade related planned or you'll drop a ton at the change machine. Works even better for a sports league party. The cake and trophies cost us more than the food and drink at the restaurant.
Answer from Ashley G. (mom of 2): Marple Sports Arena.
Answer from Lydia B. (mom of 3): Dave and Busters in Plymouth Meeting.
Answer from Bretany Pilko (mom of 2): Yesterday we were at a party at Arnold's Go Karts in Oaks when a mom told me about an arcade truck that comes to your home. I came home and did some research–it is called Game Truck and it looks awesome. I think 6 might be too young, but if you have a teenager who loves video games–this would earn you parent of the year award for getting this truck for his or her party!
