Party Pacing

 

These kids party pacing examples are designed to give you a general idea of how things will flow during your event. Our pacing is based on the type of event being held, the amount of set-up required, and our experience in hosting multiple events per day.

Semi-Private Party Pacing

All items in party room.

Standard SEMI-PRIVATE Party Pacing

Semi-private parties provide shared use of the playground and private use of a party room. All items brought to the party must be able to fit in the private party room (i.e food, drink, decorations etc). We can coordinate your food and drink requirements to make it easier for you on the day of your event. It is not possible to bring large quantities of food, drink or treats into the private party room.

Semi-private parties provide for 1.5 hours in the private party room, with a total of 2 hours in the playground. The host and guests will need to vacate the facility at the end of their designated time.

As the host, you may arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your party start time. This is an example of a 10:00 am semi-private party:

9:50 am - Host arrival. Access to the private party room is granted.

10:00 am - 10:40 am - Guest arrival and playtime.

10:40 - 11:00 am - Children’s pizza is delivered.

11:00 - 11:20 am - Birthday song and cake cutting

11:20 - 11:30 am - Party room vacated & empty by 11:30 am.

11:30 - 11:50 am - Playtime in the playground

11:50 am - 12:00 pm - Host and guest departure.

For semi-private parties (and all parties in general), it is imperative that hosts arrive on time, to avoid being compressed on time in the private party room. Because of follow-on events, it may not be possible to extend your time in the party room if your event is running long.

NOTE: In order to avoid exceeding the private party room usage time time, hosts should designate one or two individuals to shuttle gifts, food and any items brought to the party to a vehicle, approximately 15 minutes prior to the private party room usage end time.

I’m not bringing much…

Standard PRIVATE Party Pacing

For a private party, if you’re bringing very few items to the playground on the day of your event, our standard private party pacing should work for you. A private party is a total of 2 hours. Additional time can be added, if desired, to increase the total party time. For example, if you’re:

  • Having us handle your food and drink requirements, or

  • Bringing very few food items, or

  • Not bringing drinks with a cooler and ice, or

  • Not bringing a lot of extra decorations, then:

A 2-hour party without additional time should be sufficient. As the host, you may arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your party start time. Here’s an example for a 6:00 pm party:

5:50 pm - Host arrival and access to the playground is granted.

6:00 pm - Guest arrival and playtime.

6:30 - 6:40 pm - Children’s pizza is delivered and served.

7:00 - 7:15 pm - Cake cutting

7:20 - 7:30 pm - Bubbles and Lights

7:40 - 7:50 pm - Personal items brought to common areas. Host should designate 1-2 persons to shuttle items to a vehicle.

7:50 pm - Party room vacated and closed.

7:55 pm - Lights dimmed. Guest departure

8:00 pm - Party ends. Host departure

With this 2-hour party slot, the full time is used for the party, while the host allows the playground staff to handle most or all of the party details. This creates a very easy, stress-free event, as most of the set-up has been accomplished prior to your arrival.

NOTE: In order to avoid exceeding the party end time, hosts should designate one or two individuals to shuttle items brought to the party (i.e gifts, excess food items, etc) to a vehicle, approximately 15 minutes prior to the party end time.

I have a lot of stuff!!

Additional PRIVATE Set-Up or Party Time Needed

If you’re planning to bring additional items to the playground, or simply desire a longer event, consider adding additional party time to your booking. You may need additional time if you’re:

  • Handling your own food requirements and/or bringing food to the playground, or

  • Bringing food items that require set-up and/or heating, or

  • Bringing drinks with a cooler and ice, or

  • Bringing extra decorations, or

  • Interested in a party longer than 2 hours:

Additional time should be added to your event. Either 30 minutes or 60 minutes can be added. Pricing for additional time can be found on the Add-on Pricing and Terms page.

Below is an example of the 6:00 pm party slot, with an additional 30 minutes added which is used for set-up:

5:30 pm - Host arrival (20 extra minutes used for set up)

6:00 pm - Guest arrival and playtime.

6:30 - 6:40 pm - Children’s pizza is delivered and served.

7:00 - 7:15 pm - Cake cutting

7:20 - 7:30 pm - Bubbles and Lights

7:40 - 7:50 pm - Personal items brought to common areas. Host should designate 1-2 persons to shuttle items to a vehicle.

7:50 pm - Party room vacated and closed.

7:55 pm - Lights dimmed. Guest departure

8:00 pm - Party ends.

8:10 pm - Host departure (10 extra minutes used for break-down)

NOTE: With this 2.5-hour party, the host arrives 30 minutes prior to the event start, which is 20 minutes earlier than normal. 10 additional minutes are used at the conclusion of the event to breakdown and clean up the additional items brought into the playground. This helps to avoid additional charges for exceeding the party length limits. Hosts should still designate one or two individuals to shuttle items brought to the party (i.e gifts, excess food items, etc) to a vehicle, approximately 15 minutes prior to the scheduled party end time, as indicated above.
