Birthday Party FAQ

 

HOW SHOULD THE CHILDREN/GUESTS DRESS?

Nice and warm! It can get quite chilly, so we recommend wearing warm, comfortable clothing, including long socks (to help prevent blisters) and gloves. Dressing in easily removable layers is also advised, as the kids will warm up quickly once they get going on the ice - it's far easier to remove a layer than to add one that you don't have!

 

WHAT TIME SHOULD EVERYONE ARRIVE?

About 5 minutes before the party's start time, to make sure everyone is ready to begin the party on time and together.

 

WHAT IF THEY HAVE NEVER SKATED BEFORE?

Every iceHQ birthday party group is assigned an experienced party host, who gives the children a 15-minute lesson on how to skate. Most children are confident on their feet after this lesson. However, if they are still struggling, we do offer skate aids for hire at a special party rate of $3. This can be decided after the lesson. Your party host will also there to assist them after their lesson.

 

HOW LONG IS THE LESSON? / HOW LONG DO THE KIDS SPEND ON THE ICE?

The lesson will last for around 15 minutes, after which they will get to enjoy 45 minutes of free skating time during the public session. So in total, they will spend approximately 1 hour on the ice.

 

WHAT'S THE RUNNING ORDER OF THE PARTY?

·      0min-15min: Arrival, guests are shown to their private birthday area

·      15min-30min: Party host assists guests with putting on skates & protective gear

·      30min-45min: A 15 minute skate lesson, in a sectioned off area of the rink

·      45min-1hr 30min: Free skate for 45 minutes (1hr total ice time)

·      1hr 30min-1hr 45mins: Removing ice skates and returning to the party room

·      1hr 45mins - 2hrs 30mins: Food served (and cake, if supplied)

·      2hrs 30min: Party concludes!

 

DO YOU OFFER LATE NIGHT BIRTHDAY PARTIES?

Absolutely, we offer Saturday nights from 8pm-10:30pm. This time frame is designed more for older children. We also flip the party schedule and offer the food package first, before the skate.

 

IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE FOR KIDS THAT ARE SKATING?

There is no minimum age, however we suggest that children under the age of 7 are accompanied by an adult on the ice, to help assist during their 'learn to skate' class.

CAN PARENTS SKATE TOO?

Absolutely. Parents of the birthday child skate free and parents/friends of the party guest receive free skate hire. This can be decided on the day.

 

HOW MANY HOSTS WILL MY PARTY GET?

The numbers of guests will determine how many hosts your party will require. We will make sure the birthday party is always well staffed with our bubbly, experienced team members.

HOW DO I SECURE MY BOOKING?

Easy! Make a booking (including any questions we've not covered here) and we'll check the availability of your preferred date/time, and get back to you within 48 hours. Alternatively, you can call us on (03) 9478-2876 to check availability.

Once a date and time selected, a $50 deposit is required to secure the booking (which is taken off the total amount payable).

 

WHEN DO I HAVE TO CONFIRM THE FINAL NUMBER OF GUESTS AND PAYMENT?

We require the final numbers and full payment 7 days before the birthday party.

 

CAN I PAY ON THE DAY?

The full amount (minus the $50 deposit) needs to be paid 7 days prior to party, however we do accept payment for an extra guest or two on the day as we understand numbers can change.

 

WHEN DO I HAVE TO CONFIRM THE FINAL NUMBER OF GUESTS AND PAYMENT?

We require the final numbers and full payment 7 days before the birthday party.

 

CAN I DECORATE THE ROOM?

We decorate our birthday rooms free of charge, but if you would like to supply balloons or additional decorations, this is more than fine.

 

WHAT IS THE MIN/MAX NUMBER OF GUESTS ALLOWED?

We have a minimum of 10 children (including the birthday child) OR a minimum spend of $320, which can include items from our extras menu (e.g. food platters/lolly bags). We don't have a restriction on the maximum number of guests allowed, but for groups larger than 25 people, we ask that you call us to discuss your booking.

 

CAN I PROVIDE MY OWN FOOD/ARRANGE OUTSIDE CATERING?

Sorry, but we have a “no outside food” policy. We do however allow you to bring your own birthday cake that we can store in the fridge/freezer for you, but we ask you bring your own plastic plates, spoons and candles. We will supply a cake knife.

 

CAN YOU CATER FOR ALLERGIES/DIETARY REQUIREMENTS?

As long as we are informed in advance, we can cater for most dietary requirements. However, with for guests with allergies such as anaphylaxis, we ask the parent provides a lunch box with their meal, as we cannot guarantee that there are no traces of allergens in the food that we prepare. A reduction to the food charge would be made, to reflect this.

 

 DO YOU PROVIDE INVITATIONS?

Yes, we have two options available to download and print.
