How does my party time work?
A – Your kid’s birthday party will have one of our multiple private party rooms exclusively for your group. Your group will also have MANY exclusive game time ON/OFF intervals on the spongeball field. Games consist of approx. 15 mins on the field then approx. 15mins off the field. After your groups 15 mins on the field, players will return you the party room and take an approx. 15min break.
Why the ON/OFF intervals?
A – Gladiators Spongeball wants your group to enjoy their visit to the MAX! We have found the intervals of play THROUGHOUT the entire reserved 2 hour time works best to keep everyone busy and looking forward to their next game time on the field.
During your 15 min breaks another kid’s birthday party MAY be on the field. This will give your kid’s birthday party time to enjoy a food, drink or cake break.
Spongeball Party Scenario Example:
Reserved party start time:
When your guests arrive, waivers must be completed & signed. Next, all present guests will be instructed on the rules and expectations of Spongeball play AND they will be fitted with their OWN MASK.
NEXT – Guests will then be escorted to the Spongeball field, by a team member staff to begin their 1st interval of play. Play will be for approx. 15mins. This will give you some time to continue your prep or enjoy your kid’s birthday party.
After this 1st play interval, the participants will be escorted back to the party room for a quick 15min break interval. This transition will be done with the assistance of the team member staff. This 1st break gives the participants the chance to rest and maybe enjoy some refreshments.
And then?…. After approx. 15mins, the team member staff will call upon your party’s participants to grab their masks and return to the Spongeball field to play some more!! Once again, the participants will have approx. 15 mins to play.
And so on…
Pizza and cake can be incorporated into one of the many rest intervals in the party room.
Not to worry about the transitions, a team member staff will be there every step of the way!
When do I request the pizza?
A – Anytime you would like. We suggest sometime in the first hour of your reserved time. Don’t worry…if the pizza arrives when the participants are on the field…they will be back to the party room…really soon.
Are the masks cleaned?
