Birthday FAQ

How much are your birthday parties?
We offer two unique birthday party packages. Click here to for a list of packages and pricing.

What’s the minimum number of guests to get the party package rate?
All birthday packages require a minimum of 10 paid guests.

Is there a deposit required?
Yes. A 25% deposit is required at the time of booking your reservation. Cash and major credit cards are accepted forms of payment. Reservations made by phone – or online – require a credit card.  Sorry, no personal checks are accepted.

Do I have to pay for the adults and have them on the party package too?
Regarding attendees seated with your party but not on the Birthday Party package, there will be an $8 fee per non-package guest. Non-package $8 guests will receive a $10 Game Card. To accommodate parents, each party will receive 2 extra seats for no charge.

Are the party tables decorated?
Party tables come with a colorful table cover, birthday centerpiece for the table and birthday-themed paper plates and cups. Balloon bouquets are available at additional cost. Guests are welcome to bring in their own birthday paper goods.

Do you provide party invitations?
Yes. We provide free downloadable party invitations for your convenience. Click here to download.

Do you supply a cake and candles or can I bring my own?
Birthday parties with an advanced reservation may bring their own birthday cake, or may purchase a cake from us. We do provide birthday candles.  No other outside food may be brought in unless it is due to a medical condition such as a serious food allergy (i.e. gluten allergy). Please call at least one week prior to your party date if you need to make special arrangements. Snacks, ice cream, chips, etc. are not permitted.

Do we eat or play first?
Parties are scheduled on the hour. During your 1 ½ hours of reserved table time (which begins at your scheduled party time) your pizza and pop will be served, your guests may participate in karaoke and stage games, enjoy birthday cake, open presents and if you wish, play games and win tickets with their game tokens. Following your table time, your guests may spend unlimited time in the game room and/or amusement park.

Can I bring outside food?
No. Other than a birthday cake, we do not allow any outside food. If your guests follow a kosher diet, please contact the restaurant manager.

Can I order additional food off of the menu?
Yes. We offer a variety of menu items other than pizzas.  Our menu includes a variety of sandwiches served with fries, salads, appetizer platters, etc. Click here to view a copy of our restaurant menu.

Can I just come in and bring in a cake and/or presents if I don’t have a reservation?
You must be on a reserved birthday party package in order to bring in a cake and presents. Due to seating limitations, we are not able to accommodate “walk-in” birthday parties. Advanced reservations are required for all birthday parties so that we can provide the best birthday experience for you and your guests.

After the table time, can you keep our presents (coats and/or purses) until we leave?
Unfortunately, we are not able to store personal belongings.  We recommend, and will assist you, in bringing these items to your car for safe-keeping.
