Where would you want to have your birthday party? I surveyed 93 kids in grades three to five, and asked them where they would want to have their birthday party. Here are my results:

Air Trampoline: 47

Dave & Buster’s: 30

Long Island Aquarium: 10

Bowling: 2

Chuck E. Cheese: 2

Sayville Mini Golf: 2

Air Trampoline in Ronkonkoma won. Dave & Buster’s, which has a lot of locations, came in second, and the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead ended up in third. I asked each voter to write a short answer as to why he or she chose that place. Here are their comments from the voters: “I picked Air Trampoline because it’s fun and you can play games. Also, while you are playing games you are still getting at least 40 minutes of exercise. Air Trampoline is fun and gives you time to talk and interact with your friends. So if I could have my birthday party at any of these places, I would go to Air Trampoline.”

Another comment was, “I would want to have my birthday party at Dave & Buster’s because I never get to go there. Dave & Buster’s is also super-duper fun! It has so many games.” One other comment was, “I chose the Long Island Aquarium because I love, love, love animals. To me animals plus my birthday plus parties equal awesomeness! And the aquarium is one of my favorite places to be.”
