- Parties can be postponed to a later date or brought forward to an earlier date at no extra cost, provided that the required date is available
- A full or partial refund of the deposit can be issued for any cancellations up to 3 weeks prior to the party. In such a situation a full refund can be issued on request if we have not incurred any costs on purchasing specific materials or incurred any staff time in preparing material for the party. A partial refund can be issued after deducting any costs that have been incurred specific to the party
- No refunds will be issued for parties cancelled within 3 weeks of the party as it doesn’t allow up enough time to fill the gap. However, we will be happy to issue a credit note for the amount of the deposit, which can be used against a future party booking or general entry activities
Due to the nature of the service we offer, unlike other regular play centres we have to incur costs in ordering materials and preparation of materials etc., prior to the party, to ensure that the party runs smoothly on the day. The deposit charged to lock in a booking is also utilised to cover these costs. In addition to this, last minute cancellations prevent us from being able to book in any other parties to fill in the gap created.
