Is there a minimum number of guests required?

Birthday party packages with private rooms are eligible for groups of 15 people or more. If you do not meet this minimum, you will just need to pay for the  base cost of 15 people.

How many people can I bring to my child’s birthday party?

Our private party rooms cannot exceed 40 people, which includes adults and children. You can only bring the amount of people you paid for. This includes adults, grandparents, parents of party attendees, and all children including the birthday child and children under 2 years old. There must be at least 1 adult present for the party.

How far in advance do I need to book?

Please book your party at least 2 weeks in advance with a $150 deposit! You can pay the remaining balance of your party over the phone or in our lobby before your party starts.

Can I bring my own food or use a different caterer?

Yes! We’re happy to accommodate the food of your choice! However, we will not place the orders for you, so please make sure you work with your caterer or restaurant directly and let us know the delivery details before the party starts.

Is your venue handicap-accessible?

Our facilities are designed to be fully accessible to guests with a disability. Our trained staff will ensure that guests who require assistance are transported safely by means of an elevator designated for this purpose. Disabled guests can use a wheelchair and we permit seeing eye dogs, guide dogs and hearing eye dogs.
