Are you conducting any sort of cleaning / disinfecting measure before reopening?
Yes, we are implementing revamped operations that focus on enhanced cleaning procedures and social distancing measures. When you visit our location you may see the following: Extra Sanitizing Stations placed throughout the facility so guests can sanitize between arenas activities and party room. One-time Use Product implementation, such as disposable cups plates and cutlery, which will help reduce person to product contact and add an extra layer of protection. Readily available and sanitized utility carts to help you bring items to and from your car (available upon request). Require use of masks for ages 16 & up. Create a gap between parties to allow sanitizer spraying and drying of inflatables, benches, door knobs, tables etc.
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.
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.
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 space between each event. In addition, we have implemented the use of a sanitizing fogging device between events on inflatables and surfaces. 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 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 between 100% private parties, and introduced individually packaged food items.
