Arrival & Check In

When your guests arrive, they can tell the parking attendant that they are birthday party guests and the parking fee will be waived. Guests should proceed to the lobby and then look for birthday party signs with your child’s name. The signs will direct guests to the party room. 

 

If guests arrive more than 10 minutes before your reserved party time, they should go to the Club House on Level 1 to receive their admission wristbands and drop off any gifts or other party items.

If you would like to add your own decorations, please inform the Birthday Coordinator in advance so that we can accommodate you.
