How do 100% private parties make it safer to celebrate?
As always, our 100% private parties (play arenas and celebration rooms) provide you the opportunity to be in control of who attends your event and allows us to clean and sanitize the party space between each event. In addition, we have implemented the use of sanitization procedures between events on inflatables and surfaces. This method offers far great coverage, short drying times, and a 99.9% kill rate for viruses and bacteria within the facility to keep our guests and employees safe.
What are your cleaning procedures?
Diligence in keeping areas sanitary is, as always, of the utmost importance. Team members receive extensive training on the proper cleaning methods and protocols for every area of our facility. Detailed checklists are utilized for all routine cleanings and our management team enforces that standards are met at all times. Floors and surfaces are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected daily. Party rooms: all tables and birthday thrones are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each event. We have increased cleaning time for sanitization and added team members dedicated to disinfecting between events using an EPA approved disinfectant for use against SARS-CoV-2. We request guests to direct any concerns on our cleaning procedures to the supervisor on duty so it can be immediately addressed.

You say that the party includes a certain number of guests. What if some parents want to stay and watch? Do they count as party guests?

Can I have the bounce room for a longer amount of time?
