Birthday & Other Parties / Small Groups
If you are looking for the ultimate place to host a birthday party, look no further than Wake Nation! With one of the most thrilling birthday party venues in the Cincinnati area, a party at Wake Nation is sure to be a hit! We have everything you need to make your special day an amazing experience. We can help a little or a lot while you play, swim, bounce, jump, fly, ride, and enjoy your time with family and friends.
No two parties are exactly alike, but all birthday/party packages include 2 hours of fun, and an additional hour to relax and refuel on cake and ice cream under your very own reserved shade! Choose the activities that work best for your group in one hour increments. All participants must be participating in the same activity at any given time. Some of the options include:
- Playtime at our floating playground (the aqua park)
- Launching off our brand new superslide (the most thrilling experience of your Summer!)
- Scavenger hunt with puzzles, riddles, and prizes (age appropriate so it’s not too hard)
- Game time for kids & adults (cornhole, giant jenga, giant connect four, giant checkers, etc.)
- Food/cake/ice cream time (Outside food is normally not allowed, however cake and ice cream are exceptions to this rule.) Refuel and rest in the shade after your activities or take a break in between activities.
- Wakeboarding or kneeboarding* on the main cable (if you already know how to wakeboard.)
*Kneeboarding is easy, safe, fun, and has an extremely fast learning curve. It’s a great first step. Wakeboarding is also allowed if the participant already knows how to ride on the main cable. If you kneeboard, we always recommend starting your party earlier in the day when the cable is moving slower, usually the first 2 hours of operations on any given day. Kneeboarding is more intimidating when the cable is traveling at normal/fast speeds.

- This is not required, but will certainly save you time when you arrive. Encourage all Parents/Over 18 participants to fill out the waiver ahead of time. (Links are at the bottom of any page on this website.) Minors/children will be listed individually on the parent’s waiver under the “minor” section. If you are able to provide us a list of Parent/Over 18 participants (first/last name) before your arrival, we can verify waivers ahead of time and be ready for you as you arrive. Otherwise, plan on arriving 30+ minutes early depending on the size of your group.
