This is a FABULOUS option for a birthday party. We hosted nine 9-year old boys, and they loved it. In fact, we have had Gamin' Ride for two years in a row. The kids all had a blast, and were given age-appropriate games to play. Each child was engaged in something that interested him. The time flew by, and it was so cool having a huge semi parked out in front on our street. And even better that the boys weren't in our house! We would definitely choose this option again next year!
