17 Epic Places to Have Birthday Parties in Council Bluffs
There are currently three birthday party packages available at Thunderbowl and they start at $8.95 per person. All parties include bowling, and depending on the package you choose you will get things like pizza, soda, game cards, and more.
We’ve held several birthday parties at Godfather’s on West Broadway. They have a party room that is free to use, and the only requirement when we booked it was to order pizza. It’s a decent sized room with plenty of tables and seating, and I usually give the kids quarters to play the video games and claw machines. You do need to clean up after yourself and you can even do a little decorating aside from putting tape on the walls.
