Birthday Parties

To ensure a successful birthday party, it is necessary to make a reservation request at least three (3) weeks before the event date. Payment on reservations are due two (2) weeks before the event and a booking confirmation will be provided after receiving the signed agreement and payment.

Guidelines:

  1. Every birthday celebration lasts for 2.5 hours, which includes both the setup and teardown times (2 hour rental with 15 minutes before and after). Should you need additional time, you can choose to add it at a rate of $50 per hour (1 hour minimum).
  2. Party times:
    1. Numerica Skate Ribbon – Hours Info.
    2. Looff Carrousel – Hours Info.
    3. North Bank Shelter – Inquire about available times.
  3. We kindly request that you avoid using glitter, stickers, or any material that could potentially cause damage while decorating the room. If you plan to hang any decorations, we suggest using painter's tape. Additionally, balloons should be kept within the party rooms at all times. Thank you for your cooperation.

Am I allowed to bring in my own food and beverage?
  • We are currently transitioning to a new food service provider and do not have an on-site caterer to service your event; therefore, there are a few options for you to consider:
    1. You may order food from the Sky Ribbon Café located inside the Numerica Skate Ribbon. *Hours of operation may vary
    2. You may bring your own food.
    3. You may hire an off-site caterer for a 15% administrative charge. All caterers must serve Coca-Cola beverages and be a member or our Qualified Vendor Program.
  • If your birthday is at the North Bank Shelter, you are allowed to bring in your own food and beverage items. Gas grills and heating appliances are strictly prohibited from the park.
