Party deposits are half the base party amount (EX: Outdoor Parties = $250, so your deposit would be $125). These ARE NOT refundable, but if we have to cancel your party for any reason you will have this amount as a credit with our facility. This means you may use your deposit to schedule another party with us at a different date OR you may use it for admissions and feed until the amount runs out. How you use it is up to you, but make sure you let us know how you wish to use your canceled deposit amount!

Closing Out
This is a Gentle Reminder to please close out your Party/Event tab with us at our ticket booth. This is also the time you may tip your Party Host for helping/leading you throughout your party!

Please note that this is only a recommended party schedule given by us so your Party/Event has the opportunity to engage in everything we have to offer at our facility. It is in no way set in stone and you are more than welcome to change up the order of activities.  Gifts CAN be opened here at our facility, but please note that this will cut into your scheduled party time.

We are not responsible if you show up late to your party. We will try to work with you, but your party start and end times are SET. Additional charges ($50 every 30 minutes) may arise if you do not clear your party space by your allotted party END time.  

We cannot allow...

  • Any drugs/alcohol/guns
    • Including but not limited to: decorations, party favors, toys replicating these items (water/toy guns), etc.
  • Glitter, confetti, or silly string
    • Including balloons filled with these items
  • Grills or any other nonapproved reheating method (see above for approved methods)
  • Balloon releases
    • We will not allow any balloons to be released at our facility. This is due to the safety of our animal ambassadors AND wildlife in the area. If you are considering having a balloon release (not at our facility) we would like to suggest you rethink as these are incredibly harmful to many wildlife species, pets, and other animals. Instead we suggest you try bubbles! They are fun for all ages and SAFE for the wildlife and other animals who all make their homes here!


    • NO balloon arches/large balloon decorations
    • NO piñatas

Additional Information

  • We reserve the right to charge a $25 cleaning fee to the total amount owed at the end of your event
    • Cleaning fee will be charged to your total party amount if:
      •  Cleaning for your party disrupts the next party start time (if there is another party reserved for the space after yours)
      • Any items not allowed were brought and used and/or left at our facility
      • Balloons were released and/or they end up in the party room ceiling 
        • We have to rent the equipment to get these out of our ceiling and it is the same cost to rent for 1 balloon or many, so please be mindful of where your balloons are during your event!
      • If the party space is excessively dirty (icing on the floors, spilt drinks not wiped up, abnormal cooler leakage, etc.)
      • Helium tank is left at our facility

You will be notified before you close out with us if a cleaning fee charge has been added to your party. This fee is to be paid with the remaining balance at the end of your event.
