How do 100% private parties make it safer to celebrate?
As always, our 100% private parties provide you the opportunity to be in control of who attends your event and allows us to clean and sanitize the party room between each event. In addition, we wipe down high touch areas in the arena between every party and have implemented the use of a sanitizing fogging device at the end of every day. This method offers far better coverage, shorter drying times, and an overall better kill rate for viruses and bacteria within the facility to keep our guests and employees safe.
What are your cleaning procedures?
Diligence in keeping areas sanitary is, as always, of the utmost importance. Team members receive training on the proper cleaning methods and protocols for every area of our facility. Detailed checklists are utilized for all cleaning and our management team enforces that standards are met at all times. Hand sanitizer is available to guests throughout the facility. Floors and surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily. In our party rooms, all tables, and our birthday throne are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each event. We have increased allotted cleaning time for sanitization and added additional time and team members dedicated to disinfecting between events using an EPA approved disinfectant for use against SARS-CoV-2.
What other measures are you taking to follow social distancing protocols?
We have implemented numerous measures to limit contact, including contactless payment options, digital kiosks, reduced cross-traffic and 100% private parties.
Do I need to wear a mask?
It is not required however the CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. See https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html for more information and guidance.

Are your inflatables safe and clean?

Each inflatable goes through rigorous testing for all ages before it is released to any of our facilities nationwide. At our facility, each inflatable is anchored to the floor, wall, and/or ceiling to provide extra stability. Entrances and tunnels are wiped down after each party and every inflatable is cleaned and inspected on an ongoing maintenance schedule.
Is each guest, including adults, required to have a completed/signed waiver?
For insurance purposes, every guest who enters our arenas must have a completed waiver. All guests under 17 years of age must have a waiver completed and signed by a parent/guardian.

Typically not, because there will usually be another party in the party room. However, feel free to check at the front desk to see if it is available. There is no guarantee that you will have access to your room until 15 minutes prior to moving in there. Please keep this in mind while choosing decorations, if they are excessive, there might not be enough time to put them all up.

Balloons must be pre-inflated and only 2-3 mylar balloons if you are bringing some in.
Is my party private or will my guests share the inflatables and party rooms with guests from other parties?
For the safety and security of your guests, your party is completely private 100% of the time. There will not be any other people from any other parties in the arenas or party rooms while you are there. This allows our staff to focus solely on your group and to make the occasion special for your child.

Lots! First, we thoroughly prepare the room so that it’s all clean, tidy, and organized for your group.

Since there may be other parties scheduled after your party time, we may be unable to extend your party time. If your party begins after your scheduled time due to waiting for late guests, you will have less time in the arenas and, possibly, the party room. If your guests arrive late and you have already started your party, we will escort your guest to your party.
Can I have a craft activity during the party?
Because of the potential damage to our facility, we do not allow any craft projects.
When should I order food for our party? Goodie bags? Balloons? And other party options?

We offer sandwiches, vegetable trays, fruit trays, salads, and boneless chicken wings. All items are catered through NYPD.
Can I hire a character, clown, face painter or balloon artist to come to my party?
