Birthday Parties at the UBC Aquatic Centre

Book your child’s Birthday Party at the UBC Aquatic Centre! You bring the kids, we provide the fun! Our enthusiastic staff will supervise and provide age-appropriate games and activities in the water to help throw a truly memorable birthday celebration! Whether your child wants to float in the lazy river, race against the rapids, fly off the diving boards and Tarzan rope, or run through the floating obstacle course – each birthday party is tailored to your specific child. To top off the in-water portion, the birthday child will blow out a floating birthday ring!
