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. Host the party that everyone will be talking about!
No two parties are exactly alike. Be sure to let our group coordinator know what you have in mind for your special day, and we’ll do our best to make it happen!
All birthday/party packages include 2 hours of fun, and an additional hour to unwind, relax, play games, and/or refuel on cake and ice cream. Every group also has their very own, private, reserved shade(s) the entire duration of the party.
The aqua park and superslide are our most popular attractions. As such, most groups want to play and fly the entire time. However, feel free to choose any activity that works best for your group. All participants must be participating in the same activity at any given time, in 1 hour increments. Some of the activity options include:
- Launching off our brand new superslide (the most thrilling experience of your summer and our most popular activity for ages 10+)
- Playtime on our giant floating aqua park (popular with ages 6-16)
- Food/cake/ice cream time. Outside food and beverage is 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.
- Free games for kids & adults (cornhole/bags, giant jenga, giant connect four, giant checkers, etc.)
- Scavenger hunt with puzzles, riddles, and prizes (age appropriate so it’s not too hard)
- Wakeboarding or kneeboarding* on the main cable (if you already know how to wakeboard.) This activity must be completed by 2pm on any given day.
*Kneeboarding is easy, safe, fun, and has an extremely fast learning curve. It’s a great first step to being towed by a boat or cable. Wakeboarding is also allowed if the participant already knows how to ride on the main cable. We operate our main cable slow until 2pm each day. If you would like to kneeboard as one of your activities, we require that you complete this portion of your party by 2pm, while the cable is slower. Kneeboarding when the cable is operating at normal/fast speeds is too intimating for most beginners, so we discourage it.
- Our party packages are a flat rate, based on the number of participants.
- Spectators and non-participating individuals are always free.
- Parties include 2 total hours of activities, and one total hour of relaxing time, games, cake/ice cream, presents, etc.

- Food, cake, and ice cream are not included. Outside food is not allowed, however we make a single exception for cake and ice cream. No glass containers are ever allowed. Our reasonably priced, onsite food and beverage menu has many of the popular items you may want such as pizza, burgers, snowcones, adult beverages, etc.
- Pet friendly. Your friendly, well-behaved pup is always welcome. Be sure to plan for shade, fresh water, and dog care if you plan to participate in an activity. Always pick up after fido.
- Wake Nation has plenty of free shade/shelter from the sun and weather (for games, eating, seating, etc.) and an additional private shade is provided with each birthday party (up to 3 total hours).
- Birthday/other parties are not an exclusive “facility rental”. If you are wishing to rent the entire facility, with no other customers present, please contact us to discuss your needs.
- Our Aqua Park season is approximately late May to mid September. The Superslide season can extend into October. See our calendar page for the exact dates and hours of operation.
- The waiver that all participants must sign (or parents on their behalf) has a complete list of our safety rules. We expect all participants to know these rules. During your orientation upon arrival, we will review some of the most important safety rules.
- At the end of your party, we ask that you help, or ask your group to help clean up your party area. We’ve never had to enforce it, but we do have a $100 clean up fee if your area is left a disaster and our staff has to do extensive clean up. If you need assistance or additional trash bags, be sure to ask your party host.
