7 18th birthday party ideas for boys

Turning 18 is a big deal when you’re a teenager. While it’s tempting to bunch your son and his friends into a pub for the night now he can drink, we think there are so many more great 18th birthday party ideas to give it the special sense of occasion it deserves.


Got a teenager that loves the slopes? Good news – you don’t have to take the party abroad when there are two Snozone venues in the UK. They’ll be able to while away the afternoon learning how to perfect their turns on a snowboard or freestyle down the main slope.

Use your brains

A fright night with a difference – your teenager will never forget being chased by the walking dead on their 18th birthday. For a terrifying few hours, they’ll be on the run and trying to dodge real-life zombies who’ll stop at nothing to get their hands on your party’s flesh.

 Mountain biking 18th birthday party ideas

In this country, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to cycling trails so if your son and co are keen mountain bikers, make the most of these. Let them hit the tracks from the array of centres dotted around the country, and the fact that cake is nearly always a surety on bike rides makes it a perfect birthday treat. 

Fares, please

There’s no worry about them getting lost on public transport here. And no need to stress about everyone getting home safely after the party, because the transport is the party. A lot of party buses offer everything you need to throw a good one including lounge areas and WCs and they’ll get the added bonus of a tour round the city of choice.

New Call-to-action

Scrum down

Rugby-mad boy on your hands? Then you’ve got yourself a guaranteed winner here. Push the boat out and book a hospitality box for a special social gathering for your birthday boy, and he’ll even be able to get a few beers in at half time.

Get that festival feeling

Let your 18-year-old party away without a care in the world when they’re in charge of their own festival hosted in an inflatable igloo. They’ll be able to cherry-pick catering, drinks and music to make the festival of their dreams in a venue that screams ‘come inside and party the night away’.

Crash and ball

Gather your teen and their best buddies for a game of zorb football, a wacky take on the beautiful game. Once they’ve donned their bubbles, they can play with as much or as little skill as they like and take advantage of the huge zorb surrounding them and break the rules without hurting anyone.
