Looking for a unique kids birthday party idea for your special boy or girl? Hot Ground Gym specializes in memorable parties only we can do. At Hot Ground Gym we created the ultimate birthday party. The skills that they will be participating in can be seen on American Ninja Warrior!

Our birthday parties are always a blast. Our experienced instructors will make sure that your kid’s birthday party is fun and safe. Each party package is 90 minutes. We’ve got the ultimate birthday party place…the bulk of the party is guided obstacle courses—think monkey bars, tire climbing, canvas nets, etc. In the first hour, we will go through obstacle safety rules and techniques, team building, critical thinking drills, team competition, and other fun games. Whether or not the kids have seen the show, the energy level is always very high.

Afterward, we have a half-hour for cake and presents. We cut the cake with a real sword; the birthday boy/girl will have the option to use a samurai sword or military saber. The birthday boy or girl will receive 1 week of Junior Boots kids fitness training in our kid’s gym. Kids love these parties so much they can’t wait to come back!


  • We have been voted as best active birthday party in the Chicagoland area.
  • We close the gym for every party, so it’s a completely private event.
