We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause but the party times are set schedules and cannot be altered. The time(s) option(s) provided are the only times available on the day you selected. The good news is that you are more than welcome to arrive earlier at the day of your party and let the children play before your event starts.

If you need a later time, you could also check the availability of a different location or date.
Once you book your party online, the restaurant will be notified to issue your free play points on the day of the party.
Package prices are not guaranteed and will vary based on the date and time selected. Package prices are subject to change daily and are only guaranteed after your party has been booked.
