Last month we celebrated Izebellas 4th birthday. My lucky little princess had two parties, one at home on her birthday and the other at Blackpool tower the weekend before.

Izebella was given the full Lion package for her birthday and in total there were 9 children and 3 adults.
On arrival to the tower there was some confusion about the party and so a bit of waiting around whilst the correct person was located. Once they found our details we were taken straight to Jungle Jims where the party began.
You do get a choice of what you want to do first, such as play or eat or circus. The children started with an hour play in Jungle Jims and jugs of juice were provided at no extra cost
Once play time was over, the children were all taken to a special party room with music and games. Whilst at Jungle Jims the children were all given a choice of food available from Harry Ramsdens and whilst in the party room their food was bought to them. I had bought Izebella a cake and candle from home as cakes aren’t provided. We all did the birthday cake, song and candles after the food.
The food was really good and all kids enjoyed it. The portions are pretty big for kids meals too so they should not be hungry after them.
Once finished at the party room, the kids went up to the circus. Unfortunately we were too early for a showing and rather than waiting around, the tower staff allowed us to go back to Jungle Jims and play again.
We did go back to the circus and watched the full show. It is forbidden to take photographs in the circus so I can’t really show any, but it’s certainly a good show.
My children and especially Izebella enjoyed the party at Jungle Jims but ad adults we do see flaws and things that could be improved. The staff did seem very disorganised and not just when we arrived. I was told by a staff member that they were very short staffed and especially so for parties. The food was lovely and free juice a bonus but I would of liked more party games and better prizes especially for a four year old. Also perhaps some party decorations for the party table in Jungle Jims would of been nice and a present for the birthday child too. The children were given goody bags but again I think these need improvement. I was lucky to get Izebellas party for free, she had a good day as did all her friends but if families have a similar experience then they may just complain about the lack of organisation.
