Xbos is one of the best fun centers in Delaware, with one of the largest soft play areas on this side of the country. I’m not just talking about mats to jump on with colorful balls, There are slides, obstacle courses and rope bridges all inside a multilevel soft play area. Never fear for the teenagers there are arcade games and bowling.
Xbos is one of the best, if not the best, place for children birthday parties in the Middleton, Smyrna, Dover Delaware area. For an Xbos party all you need to bring is the birthday kid and cake. Xbos party packages range from $169 to $219 but they also have the $99 party package that’s full of fun and play. For birthday party packages Xbos does everything from providing invitations to goody bags. Each party comes with a hostess during party time. For party packages over $160 you get a party for 11 children with game tokens, all day access to the soft play area, a party room and hostess for 45 minutes, pizza, soda and a Xbos shirt for the birthday child. For the bowling party package Xbos includes free shoe rental, two lanes and an hour of play time. The Xbos $99 party package appropriately called the X-stimulus package is for 8 children and includes everything the basic package does except tokens, party room and hostess. With this package you get use of a large private table in an open area.
Xbos has multiple lane bowling with the ever popular cosmic bowling, think flashing lights, black light and glowing balls, on Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm to midnight. Monday to Thursday bowling is $12 an hour or $2 a game. Fridays before 5pm bowling is the same as the rest of the work week but after 5pm and on Saturdays & Sundays bowling is $4.50 a game or $21 an hour. Holidays are the same as weekend charges. Group rates are available Monday through Friday.
While the bowling is fun and the arcade games are cool you go to Xbos for the awesome soft play. Soft play passes are all day with a cost of $2-$4 Monday to Thursday and the rest of the week $4-$7. Holiday rates are the same as weekend rates. Remember for soft play to wear your socks, shoes are not allowed. Also Xbos has a separate soft play area just for toddlers for when the older kids get a little rambunctious.
Xbos is not only great for toddler parties but also elementary age kids while pre-teens and teenagers love the cosmic bowling and arcade games. Of course since it is a fun center food and drinks can be purchased. No gourmet fair but pizza, hotdogs, soda and such. So if you need to take the kids somewhere on a rainy day or looking for a cool children’s party place, Xbos of Smyrna Delaware is worth checking out. Have fun!
