Additional players can be included at a rate of $20 per person. Chaperones who are not participating in games incur no cost. You have the option to add pizzas at $13.50 each, with an additional charge of $2 per topping. Additionally, feel free to bring outside food, drinks, as well as cake and ice cream to enhance the celebration.

Weekends are our busiest times for birthday parties. Our party area is also used as an extension of our gaming area and therefore not set up as a function room available to a large number of chaperones. In order to ensure a safe and fun experience for all, we can only accommodate up to 5 chaperones on weekends for each party booked. If you need additional chaperones, they will be charged an admission fee. If you are looking for a quieter birthday party option, we encourage you to look into weekday parties where we can work with you on space and accommodations for additional chaperones more easily. If you need space for upwards of 30 to 40 people, we also are happy to offer semi-private or private rentals. Please enquire via phone or email for more information.

  • Should you need to add more party attendees to your booking, we encourage you to do so within 7 days of your event, we cannot guarantee there will be space for your additional guests but will do our best to accommodate when possible. It is recommended that you estimate your guests at the time of booking to avoid not having space.
  • We cannot allow the use of sterno or crock pots due to safety concerns. Please keep this in mind when planning your food choices for your party.
  • Plates, cups, and utensils are offered as part of our pizza package.
  • Children must be supervised by the party organizers, arcade staff are there to help with games, set up and clean up but cannot supervise party attendees for behavior.
