Please note: we do not allow confetti, silly string, piñatas, or loose glitter.
How do I book a party?
Please give us a call during open hours to inquire about booking your Birthday Party. We have limited dates available, so it is suggested reservations be made in advance.
At the time of the booking, we require a $200 deposit. Deposits are fully refundable until 30 days prior to the event. Deposits are then non-refundable within thirty days of the party, and are then applied to the party balance.
We require contact information (name, phone number, email address, etc.) and information about the Guest of Honor (name, age, etc.).

Do I need to fill out waivers if my kids have been there before?

No. Only parents or legal guardians can fill out waivers for fencers under 18. Waivers can be filled out at the party or in advance.
Can I bring party favors/goodie bags?
Yes, just let your Party Host know that you have goodie bags when you arrive.
What are the age limits?
Children must be at least 7 to participate in a party.

While gratuity is not expected, if you are pleased with the experience feel free to tip them directly. However, we cannot put tips on a credit or debit card.
Can parents stay and watch?
We only charge for anyone who is fencing. We encourage parents and other party guests who are not fencing to stay and watch.

All you need to bring are the camera, the cake/treats, and/or signed waivers. Water bottles are often appreciated. We will take care of the fencing gear!
Wearing baggy or loose clothing is not recommended.
When should we check in?
We recommend all party guests arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled party start time. This allows all guests to fill out waivers and get checked in before fencing time starts.
