  • Glow ball hire
  • A cool refreshment
  • Their very own glow bracelet

Twilight Putt Putt Glow Parties

Putt Putt & Pizza Party

The best kinds of kids party ideas are:

A. Easy to organise

B. Loads of fun!

With a putt putt and pizza party, your children are bound to have a hoot of a time!

Choose a putt putt course to play, then order Dominos pizza delivery. Yes, you heard right. Here at Putt Putt Mermaid Beach, we don’t think you should be limited to the food options we have on-site. So we invite you to have your choices brought straight to you (or even bring your own!).

Sea Themed Party on Waterways

Do you have an Ariel lover on your hands or argh pirate? Maybe sea creatures and dolpins are their new favourite animals!

For this Gold Coast kids party idea, we recommend making dress-ups mandatory! Mermaids, jellyfish hats from cellophane, perhaps even a washing basket sea turtle shell!

Our dazzling Waterways course has two flowing lagoons, a water jump hole, arching dolphin and spurting whale… You’ll even find some cheeky pirates on course too!

Come by for a game and some dress up fun – Of all the party ideas Gold Coast has available, this sure is one worthy of a seal clap!

Hire our Private Party Room (for Free!)

Did you know that we have a spacious party room hidden away? It’s true! Our party room is available to those who book a party with us, or opt-in for a group play package! Seating up to 24 children, our air-conditioned party room is the perfect streamer and balloon canvas – rain, hail or shine.

Indoor party room at Putt Putt Mermaid Beach

Our favourite part about this kids party idea Gold Coast has on offer? You’re free to decorate the room however you choose. And if you want to take your party next-level, why not have it catered for too? Now’s the time to dial up your cake-making expert friend and ask for that favour they owe you!

Here are some of our favourite cakes we’ve seen at our parties:

 Mini Golf Birthday Cake

Games Marathon Party

After almost 50 years entertaining kids (big and small), we’ve discovered a few ways to tire the little tackers out – wink!

With this party idea, you’ll combine arcade games and mini golf.

Did you know that you can add extra arcade game tokens to any party type?

Our arcade games centre has pool for the adults and all kinds of games for the kids! We’ve even had groups hosting adults vs kids competitions in our arcade games room! Who will be the ultimate winner?! To make the stakes even higher, why not have the winner score a free dinner?!

Follow all of these shenanigans up with a game of putt putt (or two) and the kidlets will be just about ready for bed. You can thank us later!

Sure, we have some lush hinterland spots on the Gold Coast. But our putt putt jungle is located right here – in the heart of Mermaid Beach! Cook up a feast in our Jungle Retreat BBQ area or have Ubereats deliver some treats. We even offer jungle themed tableware as a party extra!

Here’s a snap of Toby’s party in our Jungle BBQ Zone to give you some more party ideas!

Nothing Else Platters


Superhero Themed Party on Fun Run

Fighting off dragons, saving princesses and creeping through the spooky haunted house. Let your kid’s imagination run wild with a superhero-themed party on our Fun Run course! Play rain, hail or shine on our undercover putt putt course!

If you’re fresh out of interesting party ideas for your Gold Coast kids party, this could be the easiest of the lot to rustle up! Cut up a sheet for a cape, whack on a pair of goggles or a sleeping mask. And there you have it – a superhero costume!

But heros need strength too, of course. So pick up some tasty snacks from the 19th hole kiosk like hot dogs and hot food platters. Kapow!

Family BBQ Party

Don’t let these kids party ideas fool you. Putt Putt is the perfect location to celebrate the birthdays of little ones, right through to grandparents!

Gather up your gang for a fun-filled tournament on the green and a relaxing afternoon BBQ in the shade. We’ll even store your cake for you and bring out the candles when you give us your secret nod. Don't let a little drizzle rain on your parade, our Jungle Retreat BBQ area is undercover, just like our Fun Run course and indoor private party room!

Still not sure which party option is best for you? Maybe these unique party themes will give you some more ideas. And here’s how booking a party with us works too! You can check out all our party packages here or call for a chat with our friendly team on 07 5575 3381.
