Party FAQs

What if I lost my confirmation number?
If you provided your email address, you can locate your reservation information by clicking here. If you did not provide your email address in the reservation, please feel free to send us an email with your party information.

What happens if my guest count changes?
We cannot guarantee that we can increase your seating once a reservation has been made. Therefore, if you think more guests will attend, add seats if they are available. Additionally, we charge for the number of children booked. If not all the children attend the party, we would charge the original reserved amount minus four. (For example, if you reserved for 16 and only eight show up, you would be charged for 12) Therefore, we recommend that you confirm your reservation or call back with your confirmation number should you need to decrease or increase the seating arrangements.

How much does a party cost?
Prices and packages vary by location. To check the price at a location near you, click Pricing & Details. Then select the desired location. The screen that follows will provide you with our standard birthday package prices and for that specific location. Please note, most locations also offer special packages for hosting weekday parties.

How do I get my free tokens for booking online?
The restaurants know when a party has been booked online and will issue the tokens on the day of the party.

I was not offered the time frame I needed. What can I do?
The party times are set schedules and cannot be altered. The time(s) you were offered is what we have available on that day. If you want an earlier time, you are more than welcome to come into the restaurant early and let the children play. However, your table and host/hostess will only be prepared for you at the scheduled time of your reservation. If you need a later time, we recommend that you try a different location or date.

What if I want to stay longer than two hours?
We offer unlimited time at the table if you host your party Monday-Thursday; otherwise your table is reserved for two hours. You may stay and play games, but you will not have guaranteed seating.

Is there a cost or charge for adults/parents to attend the party?
There is no charge for these guests, unless you choose to purchase food and/or drinks for them. If you will be doing so, you can order these items during the reservation or on the day of the party through your host.
