Your birthday package includes 2 hours which includes; a 1/2 hour of games and instruction with the next half hour of supervised free time. The final hour is time for families to enjoy cake and present opening in the desiganeted party area. Due to scheduling of our birthdays, we cannot change the amount of gym time offered during birthdays. Our staff will be happy to clean up at the end of the party time.
Typically, we book parties on Sunday only; 9:30, 11:00, 12:30, 2:00, or 3:30. This is a very popular program, so plan to book about 8 to 12 weeks ahead.

Due to high demand of our parties, we often will have one birthday in the gym area, and one birthday finishing in the designated party area. We ask that you arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to allow time for our staff to clean the party area. We appreciate your understanding during our transition.

You are welcome to bring cake, ice-cream, and any other food or non-alcoholic beverage into the facility. Garbage cans are provided for your convenience. We do not have a refrigerator at this time so please consider this when making your food choices. Feel free to bring a cooler if you like.
