    For a school party - i might think it was a bit ott to make the party far away from everyobe, but it Would depend on time of day, duration of party etc. 1/2 hour can either be across town or the next suburb depending on where you are.

    Nope. I live rurally and had the girls birthday party at Kidzone which is almost an hour away, everyone that was invited came.
    It wouldn't worry me.

    Not an issue for me at all, over an hour maybe I'd think twice but 30 mins is no big deal at all.

    I would, but I can understand that lots of people wouldn't. And I've found people generally decline when you offer to provide transport in that age group.

    30 min drive isn't a big deal, I'd easily drive that long to go to a party. Going to our closest indoor playcentre, takes almost 20 min, so what is another 10 min?
    I'm sure most parents won't mind.

    Where I live, everything is so spread out that half an hour travel is normal.

    Yep I would and have. To get to any venues (shopping centres, restaurants anything really) I'd have to drive into town which is at least 20-25mins so driving 30mins to a venue is no problem to me.
