Final Thoughts on Mr. Bubble’s 50th Birthday Party

We are home, and once again well-rested.  You might not think that something so fun like Mr. Bubble’s birthday party could be so exhausting, but the excitement of a cool hotel room overlooking the Waterpark of America and the promise of playing in the world’s largest bubble bath, combined with playing in the waterpark for a day, wore us all out in the best of ways.

There were a number of sponsors who made our weekend so exciting.

  • Mr. Bubble, who put on the whole party.  The cupcakes were definitely a hit, as was the big bubble bath.  Throw in some Mr. Bubble t-shirts and towels and beach ball “bubbles” in the waterpark pools, and the scene was set for some great family fun.
  • The Radisson Bloomington, where we had a nearly-perfect room for our combo of parents and four kids.  I can’t seem to find our particular room on the hotel’s reservations site, so if you want one like it, you may have to call.  If you describe it as a queen with four bunk beds overlooking the waterpark, you should get the right one.  I only wish I’d remembered to brink cereal and milk for breakfast, as there’s no complimentary breakfast at the hotel, but there are refrigerators and microwaves in the rooms.
  • The Waterpark of America.  It’s the biggest indoor waterpark in America, and it has something for everyone.  I’m not usually much of a swimmer, but I had a lot of fun in the park with my kids.  (Watch for a waterpark post very soon for more details.)
  • TGI Friday’s.  Friday’s has long been on of our family’s favorite restaurants because of their reasonable prices, good kids’ menu choices, and food allergy friendliness.  We had good food and friendly service when we went to fill up our tummies at the TGI Friday’s near Mall of America after playing all day in the waterpark.
  • Nickelodeon Universe.  Located in Mall of America, which is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the Radisson/Waterpark of America, the amusement park provides a less-wet type of family fun.
  • The Village Company, parent of Mr. Bubble, who makes adult bath products.  A soak in the tub with their bath salts was just what I needed to relax at the end of the day, and I’ll be looking for them in stores near me.

We thank all of these companies for the fun we had this weekend.  Happy birthday, Mr. Bubble! We hope to celebrate many more years of bubbly fun with you.

    Thanks for posting this! We live near Des Moines, Iowa and are thinking of making a trip to the MOA soon. We also have 4 kids and would love a room like the one you stayed in. (It can be such a pain to find rooms that everyone has their own space). Hopefully by staying there we can have one of those quiet nights like you guys did!

    Geneva, just a note that I wasn’t able to find the room type on the Radisson website. When I checked out, I asked the desk clerk what type of room it was and she said “QNBB,” which means queen with four bunks. It also had a balcony overlooking the waterpark, and was on the second floor. Others at the Mr. Bubble party had identical rooms, so there’s more than one available; you just might have to call the hotel directly to book it.

    Enjoy your trip to Minnesota!
