Updated April 17, 2017

The 16th birthday is a milestone in a teenager's life. They are closer to being an adult and further away from being a child. For the majority of teens, a 16th birthday means a celebration that includes friends and fun. Planning a 16th birthday party for a boy can be challenging, with most party options catering to the teen girl. The key to planning a successful 16th birthday party for a boy is to be creative and to keep them engaged in entertaining activities.

Laser Tag

Laser Tag is a version of tag played with electronic laser guns that will keep teen boys occupied for hours. Players engage in a laser tag competition while inside a black light-lit obstacle course. The goal is to be the last person standing by avoiding being shot with a laser. Most laser tag locations offer birthday packages, including a room for hosting the eating portion of the celebration. Some establishments will even rent the entire venue for private parties.

Night At the Movies

For teen boys who enjoy the cinema, a great idea for a birthday party is a movie night. Regal Cinemas, the largest cinema chain in America, has birthday party packages that include use of their party room and reserved seating for party goers. For boys who have a lot of guests, there is an option to have a private showing of the movie of their choice in one of the theatre's auditoriums. After the movie, guests can indulge in food that is selected to go with the movie's theme.
