Our Build-A-Party program is beary popular so the earlier you schedule the better chance you have of getting your preferred date. Weekends often fill up 3-4 weeks in advance. Party hibernations (dates parties are not scheduled) occur periodically throughout the year due to holidays and busy store events.

How many Guests do I need and how long will my party take?
6 or more Guests are required for a scheduled Build-A-Party. Parties typically range from 1 to 1 1/2 hours. This is only an estimate. The length of the party will depend on the number and age of Guests and additional activity in the store at the time of your visit. Larger groups may extend the party time beyond 1 1/2 hours.

Should supervising adults attend a child's party?
An adult must be present at every party. We also request that a parent be present for every child 3 years of age and younger. It is not necessary for parents of party Guests above the age of 3 to be in attendance during the party.

Will we be able to have cake and beverage at the Store?
We are not licensed to serve food and beverage in our store. We invite you to visit our Food Partners for a list of participating restaurants in the mall that may offer some type of discount to your group. Call the Food Partners for specifics on what can be offered to your Group.

Is a deposit required to reserve a party date?
When you schedule a party, we do require a deposit to reserve the date. The deposit is applied to the cost of your party on the day of your visit. Parties may be cancelled 24-hours prior to the party date for a full refund or the deposit may be applied to another date if you choose.
