plan a party
Birthdays are a blast at Knock Knock! Why just have a one-activity party like swimming or bouncing when you can dance, sing, climb, create art, pilot a boat, race cars, and much much more in our 18 Learning Zones. Your guests will be having so much fun, they won’t even realize they’re learning. And as a parent, you’ll be one smart cookie!
