We love birthday parties and we've seen a fair few in our time. Just remember, it's not as easy planning for the average 18-year-old - it'll take more to impress them than it did 10 years ago! Luckily, we've compiled some outstanding 18th birthday party venues to get your planning right on track.
Party among the marine life
Don't worry, this doesn't involve getting wet. The Deep in Hull, situated by the Humber estuary, is a real gem of an aquarium. Party away with 250 guests, fish, sharks and rays or maybe you'll mingle with the penguins in the Kingdom of Ice.
Bring the tribe
Great for the adventurous, Go Ape is ideal for those who want to channel their inner Tarzan (or Jane). Swing through the trees while tackling high rope obstacles and zip wires or navigate your way through the forest on a segway.
There's nothing wrong with a little bit of healthy competition and when it comes to paint-balling, it's all about the winning. There are so many venues around the country, and you'll be able to venture through lots of imaginative game zones - just prepare to get splattered.
Have a field day
If you're lucky enough to have the space to place an inflatable dome in your back garden or fields surrounding you then an igloo disco is a real crowd-pleaser. It'll be just like they're hosting their own festival. Or better still, it'll feel like they've got a personal nightclub right on their doorstep - they'll love you forever.
Take to the stage
Theatres provide an ideal venue for parties thanks to the purpose-built spaces for socialising they offer. Unsurprisingly, they also come with great sound systems so if you have a DJ or live band in mind, this type of venue would raise the roof.
Roxy Ball Rooms are popping up across the north, and once you hear about the concept you'll see why. Ping pong and pool with pizza and cocktails (for those of age), make a winning combination for the majority of teens, and for private parties, ask them about a VIP room which comes with its own self-service fridge.
Hop on board
All aboard for a party cruise. What could be more exciting than turning 18 on a ship full of your mates and family? Separate decking areas are perfect to cater for everyone's different needs: adults can relax on deck, take in the views and make sure all's ticking over while guests can let their hair down on the dance floor.
We hope we've given you some inspiration and ideas in your search for the perfect 18th birthday party venue.
