Review from the 2022 Party SurveyVenue was great. Kid really loves the place. You get the whole first floor to yourself and your party and parents can join in (everyone has to sign waivers though). You get a party host to set up your stuff and two parkour instructors to help corral the kids and walk them through activities. You then move to the second floor where there is another set up and a party space for pizza and cake.

2018 Birthday Party ReviewBoys had a blast! The commute is a pain as it's not near the subway but we have families carpool. They have a party room upstairs and can order in pizza. You bring cake, drinks, plates, etc.
Review from Kids Birthday and Bar/Bat Mitzvah Party Survey - 2016Age of child: 6 Venue Review: So the first thing is that Brooklyn Zoo is NOT the Prospect Park Zoo. Lots of parents thought there would be animals... However, it is actually a really fun parkour/ninja training facility. My son (turning 6) and daughter (almost 4) had an amazing time with their friends. They spent 20 minutes on a huge trampoline, 20 minutes on an obstacle course and 20 minutes jumping/swinging/flipping into a huge foam block pit. There were about 18 kids total, divided into groups of 9 and one instructor per group. The coaches were really good with the kids who ranged from nearly 4- nearly 8. Every kid there had a great time and there was no effort on my part! We also had 30 minutes for pizza and cake (we ordered the pizza based on the Brooklyn Zoo guys recommendation and brought our own cake) in a beautiful room 2 floors above that had gorgeous views of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Highly recommend for any birthday parties for kids turning 4-18. When we arrived there was a party for a 15 year old and those kids seemed to be having just as much fun as our kids had!
6 year old boy birthday recommendationsI went to two really awesome 7th birthday parties at Brooklyn Zoo (note, not the Prospect Park Zoo!). They do parkour-style classes and lots of other stuff for adults but also have kids' programs. It's not in the Slope but it's not too far of a walk from the L train. We ended up running into friends on the train out there and also rode back with a huge group of kids and parents, which made the ride go faster. Or of course you could also drive/Uber. At the party they had stuff like basic tumbling, rope swing, jumping into foam pits and a trampoline. It's great for active kids and the teachers/coaches were very fun and encouraging!
