How do I know your facility is clean?
We pride ourselves on being the cleanest kid’s party venue around. In fact we’ve always been that way and have been even before Covid hit. Our emphasis is on maintaining a clean, sanitized facility and have strict cleaning guidelines for our employees to follow between each and every party. We use electrostatic cleaning machines that mist tiny droplets of FDA and CDC approved SAFE cleaners which adhere to all surfaces ensuring clean disinfected surfaces throughout our facility. We also have air purifiers in the party rooms as well as hand sanitizers and hand wipes located in each party room, arena, check-in area and each bathroom. Please feel free to call and ask about our sanitizing and disinfecting procedures or stop by to see for yourself.
What happens in case of a snowstorm?
We don’t cancel or postpone parties based on a weather forecast or due to a light dusting when the roads are being plowed and salted and people are out and about. If we do get snow or anything else that could make the roads dangerous we would make the determination early on the day of the storm and postpone the party to another available day and time that works for the customer. Please note that if you postpone your party, you would be responsible for any catering (not pizza or the ice cream cake) that you ordered for that day.
Is the party a private party?
Yes, for the foreseeable future, your party will be the only party in the building. The private and exclusive nature of your event is one more thing that separates Bounce Safari from other children’s entertainment venues.
