Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

Can we bring in our own food and drinks? Décor?

Yes! While we work on offering party-sized meals through our café, you are more than welcome to bring in food for your party or even have it delivered. All drinks must be non-alcoholic. Decorations are included in the birthday packages (except Solar), but you may bring in additional decorations or use your own decorations entirely.

There are things within the package that I’d like to add/remove. Is this possible?

Yes! While our packages do cover almost everything you need, we can build a customized package to better suit your party plan.

What time can we arrive for the party?

We allow the party parents access to the party area about 30 minutes prior to the start time while the birthday team puts the finishing touches together.

Do my guests have to leave once the party is over?

Not at all! While the party area is only available to guests during the set time, the admissions associated with the party packages are valid for the whole day! We encourage you to let your guests know that they may arrive as early as one hour before your scheduled party time and may stay as long as we are open.

Are balloons included with the decorations?

We do not include balloons with our decorations as we understand the impact they may have on our environment. Partygoers are allowed to bring balloons, but we ask that they are secured so that they cannot be released and that they are not filled with any sort of material (i.e. confetti, sequins, rice, glitter, etc.).
