Daytona Lagoon Birthday Party

This month we celebrated my daughter's birthday at Daytona Lagoon.  If you are looking for a stress free experience, then this is it.  They do all the planning for you!  We showed up with our cake and the rest was done by them - party invitations, party host, decorations, balloons, goody bags, games, plates, cups, napkins, pizza and drinks.   It was so nice to not arrive early to set up or stay late to clean up.  Daytona Lagoon takes care of all of this!!

They have several party packages to choose from.  You can find the details HERE.   We booked the Extreme Package which gave our party all day access to the Water Park and the Dry Park.  The Dry Park includes Laser Tag, Rock Wall, Go-Karts, Mini Golf and Indoor Ropes Course.  The Water Park features two new rides this year, Kraken's Revenge and the Shaka Halfpipe.  My daughter and her friends said they had the best day!

There are 4 party rooms to choose from: The Dot Room (this is the largest room), Cosmic Room (Glow in the Dark), Camo Room and the Princess Room.  I was able to photograph all but the Cosmic Room since another party was happening during the time we were there.


Our party hostess was wonderful!  She was so accomadating and helpful throughout the party.  

The kids had a blast in the entertainment center playing games and doing the ropes course. 

The water park was adventure packed.  There are so many different slides/attractions (lazy river, wave pool, speed slides, raft slides and more!!) that the kids wanted to stay until the park closed.   

Go-Karts was another fun attraction that the birthday party group enjoyed.  They rode the carts over and over again.  They have single and double seated karts.

Thank you Daytona Lagoon for a great and memorable day!!  If you are looking for a fun place to have your child's birthday then contact Daytona Lagoon today!!

Palm Coast's love of trees and commitment to environmental sustainability will be celebrated at the day-long Arbor Day event from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at Central Park in Town Center, 975 Central Ave. Admission is free, and all activities are free. Refreshments and products from vendors will be available for purchase.

Arbor Day is a nationally-celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and tree care. This is the 14th year the City has held the event drawing nearly 5,000 people to the 2018 celebration. This year, the 2019 event falls on the pop culture Star Wars Day ‘May the Fourth.’ With that in mind, there will be Star Wars-themed green technology demonstrations featuring drones.

The tree tent opens at 9 a.m. A Master Certified Arborist will be in the tree tent from 9 a.m.-noon, offering free guidance on proper pruning, placement, planting and root shaving techniques. To get a free tree, bring a non-perishable, non-expired food item (human or pet) to trade for the tree while quantities last! Boy Scouts will be in attendance to help you get your tree to your vehicle.

The native butterfly release will be at 11 a.m. at center stage. There will be other fun activities are planned for all ages, including entertainment by VertiFit Aerial Arts, a bigger-than-ever butterfly tent, a petting zoo, a hay bale maze, train rides and crafts. Additionally, there will be wildlife from the Central Florida Zoo. The Avian Reconditioning Center for Birds of Prey will offer shows and have an exhibit. The Flagler Audubon Society will offer free bird walks in Town Center. Shelldon and Shelly from the Daytona Tortugas will make a special appearance. There will also be performances by the City’s ‘Recyclasaurus’ and ‘Velocirappers’ dinosaurs. Families can also take a picture in the life-size eagles nest. DJ Vern of Pyramid Disc Jockeys and Surf 97.3 FM will provide the DJ entertainment for children's games, dancing, line dances, limbo and hula hoop contests.

Participants who completed the Mayor's 90/90 Challenge for fitness will be recognized and receive their prizes. Medals will be given to those who completed 90 miles in 90 days. The Mayor’s 90/90 Challenge began on Jan. 10 and ended April 9. As of the last count, more than 100 people already logged nearly 11,000 miles. That’s two round-trip treks from Palm Coast, FL to Seattle, WA and back!

Back by popular demand is the free paper shredding service. Plan to take advantage of this hands-free, uncomplicated process as totes will be wheeled to your car to help unload paper and bring it to a chute that dumps all of it into a shredder. For the free shredding service, acceptable items include: staples, paper clips, spirals, notebooks, expired credit cards, check books and folders with small prongs with small amounts of metal/plastic. Unacceptable items include: batteries, three-ring binders, binder clips, hard drives, X-rays and large amounts of metal/plastic. Shredded materials will be recycled, with the ink and color removed to produce new paper towels, tissues, etc.
