Birthday Party F.A.Q.'S
How do I book a party?
You can book a party online, over the phone with a credit card, or in person.
Is a deposit required?
Yes, there is a $75 non-refundable deposit for Regular Weekday/Weekend parties and a $100 non-refundable deposit for Private Parties/Events. If you need to cancel your party, please give us at least 30 days notice to receive your deposit in store credit. If you cancel your party with less than 30 days notice, you forfeit your deposit.
What is the difference between Regular Weekday/Weekend Party and Private Party?
Regular Weekday/Weekend parties are parties where we are open to the public and you have use of the Private Party room during the 1st 90 minutes of the 2 hour party. Private Parties are when we close the entire facility for just your party. For Regular Weekday/Weekend parties the price is based on the number of kids in attendance while for Private Parties you are renting out the entire facility.
Do I need to know the Party Package size in advance?
Yes and no. When reserving a party, you need to choose between "Party for 12" or "Party for 16" due to room size. Our Deluxe Room accommodates 16 or more children while our Standard Room accommodates less than 16 children. You can upgrade or downgrade between the “Party for 8” and “Party for 12” package OR you can upgrade or downgrade between the “Party for 16” and “Party for 24” package but you cannot upgrade or downgrade between "Party for 12" and "Party for 16." If you book a "Party for 16" you will be charged for the Party Package for 16 even if you have less 16 children because you are using the Deluxe Room.
What if I don't have 16 children but want the Deluxe Room?
You can reserve the Deluxe Room by selecting the "Party for 16" package. Since you are paying for 16 children, the tokens, pizza, juice, and water for 16 children will be provided.
Where can I get the invitations?

When do I need to know the final headcount by?
We will call you 4-5 days before the party to get a final headcount and any add-on's. The birthday child should be included in the headcount.
Should babies younger than 1 year or children 8 years and older be included in the headcount?
No, since there is no charge for infants less than 1 year or children older than 8 years they should not be included in the headcount. However, if you would like a seat for them at the kid's table there will be an additional charge for table setup and food (optional).
How long is the party?
The entire duration of the party is 2 hours. You and your guests have access to the Private Party Room for the first 90 minutes of the party.
