Further Info

Indoor Area

An area will be designated for your party. This area is ideal for meeting guests, storing bags/coats, presents, additional birthday snacks & birthday cake. We do not recommend decorations as you will spend only a short time in the indoor area. We suggest kids bring just themselves and you bring anything you might need in a backpack to carry with you e.g. party food and any other treats.

Linger Longer

You are welcome to linger longer at Kelburn before or once the party is finished. In order to do this you will need to purchase day entrance tickets for the birthday group & any additional guests. Group discount may be applied. Party costs only cover the 2 hours of delivery. Adults just dropping kids off for the party can either stay and pay full entry or leave and return.
