Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a birthday party and a package?

Birthday parties are large celebrations that require a minimum of 10 guests and include a dedicated party area at the lodge, pizza, beverages, birthday cake, and customization options such as water park access for your guests, attractions passes, and more.

Birthday packages can be added to reservations for guests staying overnight at the lodge and provide smaller-scale birthday essentials in your private suite.

Does the birthday child need to be included in the party number?

Yes, the birthday child needs to be included in the party guest count. The guest count includes all adults and children in attendance and must have at least a 1:4 ratio of adults to children.

When can my party go to the water park?

If you select a birthday party package that includes water park access, the party host can check in as early at 10:00 am on the day of your party to collect the wristbands to hand out to party guests. Guests with wristbands may access the water park until closing time the evening of your party day.

Can I bring my own food and drink to the birthday party?

You may bring your own birthday cake, but no other outside food or beverage is permitted. The cake must be prepared in a nut-free facility and a receipt for purchase of the cake from the licensed business must be presented to the Birthday Coordinator on the day of the party.

Should I include family or friends who are not going to play in the water park in the party size count?

Any guest who expects to enter the water park, even if not actively playing, must have a wristband. In order to receive a wristband, a guest must be a part of the final party guarantee.
