Should we arrive early?
We will organise everything for you. You may wish to arrive shortly before your party is due to start but please note that your dedicated Party Host will not be available until 10 minutes before your party.
What clothing should we take?
We ask all the children to wear sensible clothing which enables them to be active and have fun on our play structure. We recommend clothing that covers arms and legs to prevent injuries on our slides. All children must wear socks at all times. Socks are available to purchase from our reception for any child that forgets to bring them. Depending on your choice of party room, dressing up costumes will be provided before the party banquet.
Do parents have to stay whilst the children are at the party?
Parents must sign their children in and out but parents do not all have to stay. However, we do request that at least 1 responsible adult per 15 children remain on site during the party.
How long will the party take?
We allow 80 minutes for children to enjoy the play equipment and imagination rooms and a further 40 minutes for the party banquet.
What happens if we have some guests with allergies to certain types of food?
Please let us know as soon as possible, and preferable at least 7 days prior to the party, regarding any dietary requirements. Our chefs will always do their best to accommodate your needs but we cannot guarantee a full alternative menu if dietary requirements are not made known to us within the 7 days requested.
Can I bring in my own birthday cake?
Yes of course. Just let us know and we will provide the matches (please do not bring your own matches or lighters) as well as arrange plates and forks for you all as part of the party.
Are parties non-refundable?
Unfortunately, our parties are non-refundable. We are more than happy to move your party for you if you contact us 4 weeks ahead of the party date.
On the day
