Birthday – Full Park dates FAQ

Q. What is the Minimum and maximum number of Children for a Birthday Party?

A. The minimum number for all our Birthday parties is 10 Children. The maximum 18 children.
(please call if you would like increased numbers)

We suggest that if you are unsure of your exact numbers, you book for the MINIMUM 10 children, and let us know 48hrs before your party what your exact numbers will be. We will amend your booking and you can pay the balance on the day. All catering numbers will be charged. No refunds for non attendance.

Q. What if it’s wet?

A. Wild Thing! and our Theatre Shows will give hours of undercover excitement. Whatever the weather – the party goes on!
(We do not offer refunds in the event of adverse weather)

Q. Are the outside rides and attractions included with my package?

A. All full park parties included access to the outside rides and attractions and the indoor play centre as standard. Please note: Some rides and attractions have height/age restrictions. Not all attractions may be available on all dates. Last rides outside are dependant on date of visit. Not all rides share the same open/close times. Queue lines may close earlier than the last ride times, dependant on queue length. ALWAYS check our ‘Before Visit’ information to plan your day at the park.

Q. What benefits do I get for booking a Birthday Party if I am a  Member?

A. If the birthday child holds a current valid Membership they will receive their place free, plus if you book online you will still receive a 10% Discount. (Please note: The birthday party must be booked on a date that is relevant to the Membership type. If your Membership has not started yet or you are a winter member the free place will not apply on full park opening dates between Sept – Mid March)

Q. What if other current members are attending the party

A. The cost, per child, of the party includes the use of a party room, meal, ice lolly, squash, party bag and the meet and greet service of the party host and meal delivery to the party room. Due to this no other members can be added to any party package without paying the full party admission rate.

Q. What can the adults do?

A. Adults can enjoy all of the rides and attractions in the park with the children. In Wild Thing on the mezzanine area they will find comfy sofas, and widescreen TV!

Q. Our arrival to the park

A. Please ensure your guests all arrive at your selected arrival time and gather at the ticket booth. For ‘Really Wild’ and ‘Toddler’ Parties please ensure your arrival time is at least 45 mins before your booked eating time. For Pony Parties please ensure you arrive at least 30 mins before your Pony Party starts. For ‘After School’ parties please ensure all of your guests arrive as close to 3:30pm as possible to ensure you get the most out of your party.

Q. Where should children arrive and be collected?

A. The Party Organiser should arrive at the Meeting Point by the Ticket Booth in plenty of time to gather all the party-goers together. It’s a good idea to arrange with parents who are dropping their children off that collection is from the same point at an agreed time.

Q. Can the adults eat too?

A. We provide a good quantity of food for the children, but if you require extra for the adults to eat as well, then please let us know and we will be happy to supply a buffet for adults at a discounted rate. This must be pre-booked 48hrs in advance.

Q. How do I pay?

A. The Party Balance is to be paid for by the Organiser before the eating time of  the Party. You will be charged for all the children present at the Party (minimum of 10, maximum of 18.), any additonal adult buffet and extra adults. We suggest that if you are unsure of your numbers at the time of booking, that you book for the MINIMUM 10 children and let us know  final numbers a48 hours before your party . If the adults want to pay for themselves it is simplest for you to collect their money and pay the whole balance, rather than them paying at the Ticket Booth on entry.

Q. Can we bring a ‘costume character’ to entertain our party guests?

A. Customers are not permitted at any time to provide a costume character to entertain their guests. As we are a business open to the public, any character within our park has to have permission form the copyright license holder for the character to be used. Our special event character days are provided by Rainbow Productions, London with full copyright permission from the license holder.

Q. What if my numbers change?

A. Please let us have your final numbers 24 hours in advance of the party (48hrs in the case of a cold buffet or adult buffet) so we may guarantee a sufficient supply of food for all the children. All catering numbers paid for will be charged.

Q. Childrens ages

A. The cost of the party is calculated on the age of the children on the day of the party and not at the time of booking

Q. Siblings

A. If parents decide to bring siblings or other family members they will be charged at the standard group admission prices, this will not include party food. No exception to this rule.
