My son recently had his 6 year birthday party here.  They have this place down to a science.  They have the kids run around, get the energy out, then do a magic show.  The magician was patient and knew how to handle kids that often times can be pushy or bratty, reacting with a smile and directing them with a funny joke.The place was clean, well maintained, and there were rules to keep the kids safe such as up to 4 per bouncy area, not being allowed to run in the open area, etc.I was very happy with this place!

Jeff, the owner, was a delight to coordinate with on my daughter's 4th Birthday party; and the magician killed it with the kiddos. They were engaged, and amused, and laughing their heads off. I even saw a few parents chuckle. He really was a highlight of the day! More...

I was pleased after I had a party here and was not pleased the manager was a great help in understanding my frustration and helped me get a refund plus the princess goody bags I was supposed to receive the day of the party and offered a complementary magic show as well

I would call this place cozy. Unlike bounce U or the other bounce house facilities I have been to, Abra-Kid-Abra is a great place for small groups of kids to have a party with out being lost in the throngs of people you may share a facility with in other venues. It is clearly a small operation and I appreciated that. The staff were great with kids. Remembered their names and genuinely seemed to care that they got a great experience. The magic show always on their level and mist of all it was fun. Our kids and the adults had a blast here. More...

Our son's 6th birthday was great! All the kids had a wonderful time and it was nice to have a different party. Bradley was great with the kids and very knowledgeable and helped me remember everything we needed for the day. He was also accommodating to our Pokémon theme and our son loved that. My son had an extra special day and I think that is really all you can ask for! More...

Our 3-5 grade students at Drummond Elementary loved the magic show! Our school enjoyed the Anti-bullying assembly. It was very engaging and the kids loved being able to participate along with Mr. Howie.

We had my daughter's 5th birthday there today and everyone had so much fun! Brad, our magician, was so good with the kids and knew all their names because he introduced himself to everyone who arrived. They seemed absolutely committed to giving the kids a fun experience to remember and I'm so grateful to them! You can tell they have experience and the event went off without a hitch. Very professional and worth every penny! More...

Everyone had a great time! Expectations were set in advance, which helped with understanding how the day would flow. They have enough entertainment and variety for an enjoyable time. We had the place to ourselves after the first 20 minutes. This was very nice! The magic show was full of giggles from the kids. After the prize room, every child got a goody bag and balloon animal. The kids loved it! And most of all, the birthday girl enjoyed every minute. This was a great choice for us. More...

I could not be more delighted with these Abra-Kid-Abra. They sent a face painter and a magician to my Sant Automotive event in Crestwood. These guys drew a crowd and engaged them. The kids and their parents loved Abra-Kid-Abra. I could not have chosen better people to represent Sant Automotive than Abra-Kid-Abra. Thanks for making my event so great! More...

We just had my daughter's 5th birthday there this morning. The snowstorm hit just before the start of the party.  I couldn't get my van up the hill in the snow so Brad helped me carry my kids up the hill.  The kids loved the sequence of the party and my daughter loved being the star of the magic show. It really was the perfect set up. Many of the parents commented on how cute it was. I would recommend this place to anyone. GREAT SERVICE!!!! More...

The Amazing Ben did my son's 5th birthday party, and wow did he set the bar high. I did go for all the bells and whistles so my kid could participate in the magic show and the tunnel thing after. It was perfect for his age group. I thought the bounce time was a little small, but it really was enough to allow them to sit still through the magic show. And while the kids bounced, Amazing Ben learned all their names while bouncing and used those names in the magic show. He lived up to his name! The room is nothing fancy, but my son is seven now, and he still says that was his best birthday party by far. We invited the whole class to a party on Friday night. We had 24 kids, and most parents dropped off. Amazing Ben did it all. He was professional and even called before the day to find out what my son was into. The kids laughed so hard.  It was the perfect party. More...

I had my son's 1st birthday here and it was a HUGE success.  I love to plan a party and wanted to make sure fun could be had by all ages.  Who doesn't love a little magic, right?  The guests included 75 people: 50 adults and 25 kids.  No problem with space, but I was super worried about it before the event.  We did bring in about 10 extra chairs so all the adults could have a seat.  The kids sat on the floor.The party started with 30 minutes of bounce houses.  There are 3.  One is an obstacle course and the other two are your standard bounce house with a basket ball net and a couple foam balls.  The obstacle course was the favorite and had a line of kids patiently, waiting for their turn.The next 30+ minutes was the magic show.  The kids were so engaged and Jeff, the magician, did a fantastic job of reading his audience.  Even his toughest customers were eventually drawn in.  I cannot tell you the number of parents that texted, emailed, called and wrote me notes to let me know how much fun the kids had.  Isn't that what it's all about?  The kids having fun and seeing their faces light up!  After the magic show, the kids had a magic workshop and the magician showed them how to do some of the tricks.  Needless to say, this was another big hit.  Again, I had countless parents send pictures of their "magicians" putting on a show over the next few days.While the kids attended the workshop, the adults ate.  Then the kids ate, so it worked out well to have 2 shifts.  We had the party catered and the food tables were set up by Abra Kid Abra before hand, as I had requested. The kids received Goodie Bags compliments of Abra Kid Abra.  The Goodie Bags contain 5 magic tricks.   After dinner, we sang Happy Birthday and then my baby boy got his smash cake.  Again, Abra Kid Abra was very accommodating.  A few days before the event, the magician called to go over EVERY detail of the party.  This was very helpful.  We were on the same page. Some extras that I did, but are not necessary: ordered magic wands, magician hats, magic tattoos, invisible ink and personalized M&M's on line to add to the Goodie Bags provided by Abra Kid Abra.  I asked Dierberg's to make fruit kabobs with a pineapple in the shape of a star on the end.  Some stars had sprinkles, some did not.  I also had signs made to put at the corners of Brentwood and Atalanta, Atalanta and Lafayette and at the Parking Lot entrance to indicate more parking behind the building.     I am very pleased with Abra Kid Abra's attention to detail and willingness to accommodate our large group in order to make the party a success.  The greatest compliment I can give them is to share the testament of a 7 year old attendee, "I want to have my birthday party at Abra Kid Abra."

We had our 5 year old's birthday party here. The bounce house prelude to the magic show was long enough to get the kids settled down but not so long that kids were getting loopy. Dan the Magic Man was very good with this age group including some sleight of hand that surprised everyone. The magic show was a hit and also was just the right length. After cake Dan made balloon dogs for all the kids. I do think they need a rubber mat at the exit if the bouncey obstacle course, the kids were slipping on the tile floor as they jumped out, but no one fell, luckily. All in all a great party. More...

Abra Kid Abra is a very unique and fun place to have a child's birthday party! My son attended one of their camps over the summer and loved it so we decided to have his birthday party here. We had a great experience! Very well priced for all that you get. I loved that it involved very little setup and clean up and everything was arranged for us. We just showed up with our birthday cake, drinks and serve ware. The kids loved it and talked about it even days after the party was over. The magic show was very engaging! The kids loved the bounce houses! Jeff was very friendly and accommodating and made our son feel very special on his birthday! Abra Kid Abra is very unique place to have a child's birthday party and will have your child and his friends talking about it for days! More...

My twins and their friends had a great time at Abra-Kid-Abra to celebrate their 5th birthday. Jeff could not have been more helpful, accommodating and professional in all of our communications leading up to the party. Our event was handled by Dan the Magic Man who was great with all of the kids. They got to bounce for about 30 minutes and then they have all the kids sit down for the magic show, which was perfect. They were just worn out enough to sit and watch the magic tricks, and Dan included several kids from the audience as assistants. Then they showed the kids how do some tricks at home on their own using the items in the goody bag that each kid received. The goody bag included 4-5 tricks plus each child also got a hat and a magic wand. Then we went into the party room that they already have decorated for you, to sing and have cake. Everything went very smoothly and kept the kids engaged and entertained. Many of the parents commented to me at the party as well as days later how great of a party it was, that their kids had so much fun, and they were having fun at home showing off their new magic skills.  I would highly recommend having your kids party here, so much fun for the kids, and easy for the parents. Thanks Abra-Kid-Abra for making our party magical! More...

Q&As

The creator of Abra-Kid-Abra, Jeff Lefton, was given his first magic kit at age 10. By age 13 he was earning money performing at Birthday Parties for his friends and neighbors. Forty plus years later we've harnessed that enthusiasm and experience to create the best parties available.

Our shows are always new and fresh, so what we could take you through in detail today will be different tomorrow. However I can say that they are fun, interactive, guest centered shows. We know the truth--the magic doesn't come from the magician. It comes from the audience.

I love making people laugh, smile, and wonder. Whether its a 4 year old child or a 99 year old senior, when the smile reaches their eyes, we've been a success.

The help and support of friends and mentors motivated me to continue making this business grow.

We know how to entertain you. Its as simple as that.
