If your party is canceled (for any reason), a cancellation fee will be applied and your refunded deposit will be reduced. If cancelled within 72 hours of your scheduled party, your entire deposit will be forfeited. (More information below on our cancellation policy.)

When should we arrive for our party?

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled party begins to review the information we have and order any extra food items, guests list questions, etc. The party will not begin and party guests will not be allowed in the designated play area until the person responsible for paying the bill is present.

Do I need to provide a guest list?

Yes, a guest list is required for our Employees to refer to while guests are arriving for your scheduled party. If a list is not provided, you may be charged for someone you may not have intended to be on the guest list.

What happens if I am late for my scheduled party?

We will do our best to accommodate you and your guests; however, our party rooms run on a strict schedule and your party may be asked to relocate to another location if available in our facility.  There are no exceptions for late arrivals.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled party so we can review your guest list, place any extra food orders, purchase ride tickets or wristbands, and answer any questions you may have.

When do I need to give a final guest count for my birthday party?

Birthday Party Package: Our party rooms comfortably accommodate 24 children. If your scheduled party exceeds that amount, please contact Party Central as soon as possible. If you need more room, you may consider scheduling an extra room for $50 to be certain you have enough space, especially if you will be expecting a large number of adults to attend. If your guest count does not exceed 24 children, it is not necessary to provide your guest count until the day of your party.
