Best Birthday Party Place

Peter Piper Pizza

The pizza might be tasty—and the word "pizza" is part of Peter Piper Pizza's name—but the pie is an afterthought when kids get a glimpse of all of the other stuff around the place. Every imaginable game or plaything that dings, dongs, sings, buzzes, flashes or otherwise makes lots of noise packs the floor; kids can tally up tickets with certain activities to win useless yet exciting prizes. What might be a night in hell for parents—especially if the birthday party comes complete with a gaggle of screaming kids—is heaven in Tucson for children. C'mon, isn't your kid worth it?
