Incredible New Year's Eve Celebration For $25 per person you can usher in 2009 with the fine folks at Incredible Pizza. There'll be a "special balloon drop, door prizes, trivia contests, and a non-alcoholic midnight toast, in addition to its unlimited buffet, go-karts, bumper cars, mini-golf, and bowling." Essentially, what they're saying is "You give us $25 and we'll keep your kids busy for a few hours," which really sounds worth it to me. Starts at 8pm, ends at 1am.

Ice Rink in The Woodlands Open from noon to 1am, this could be a filler activity between other daily traditions. And with tickets being either $9.50 for anyone over five, or $5 for anyone under, it's light on the pocketbook as well.

The Ice at Discovery Green If you're looking for ice skating a little closer to downtown, this is the place to go. In the Battle of the Ice Skating Rinks, they lose points for only being open until 8pm on New Year's Eve, but they gain points for having a toddler-specific rink and being about an hour closer to my house. Objectivity, schmobjectivity. $10 gets you in (includes skate rental).
