Best Kid’s Party Place

  Readers, upstate: Pump It Up (103 S. James St., Newport, 998-1144)
  Readers, downstate: Bonkersville (17601 Coastal Hwy., Lewes, 645-8774)
  Critics, upstate: What kid could resist chugging along in an antique red caboose on the Wilmington & Western Railroad? Private parties can rent the 90-minute Mount Cuba Express for just $200. Best of all, the caboose is available for use during the off-season, while the rest of the railroad is closed. Just provide the kids and the cake. “My son’s most memorable birthday was when he was 4, and we went to Wilmington & Western Railroad,” Karibjanian says. “The kids loved riding the train, and they had cake and punch in the caboose. Party over.” (2201 Newport Gap Pike, Wilmington, 998-1930)
  Critics, downstate: Way more than your typical daycare provider, Kids Cottage, with its brightly-colored murals, indoor playground, huge tree fort, toys and games, is the perfect place for a kid’s party. There’s a private wing for events, and kids are free to hit the basketball court or the video games in the media room. Party packages are super affordable when you BYO food, or you can opt for pizza, snacks and balloons for a little more. (35448 Wolfeneck Road, Rehoboth Beach, 644-7690)
