One-of-a-Kind Celebrations Full of Playground Street Cred.
Unforgettable Celebrations for Every Occasion
Our Kids Parties are the envy of the playground. Step up your game and throw the kind of event your child will never forget—with blacklight bowling, kid-friendly menus, convenient party packages, and state-of-the-art amusements like laser tag and arcade games (available at select locations). Our rockstar crew of celebration specialists will make planning your child’s party totally easy (and super fun). When your child’s next big occasion rolls around (birthdays, bar/bat mitzvahs, confirmations, graduations, after-prom parties, you name it), bring that bash to Bowlero and experience something more than special:
How important is the headcount when planning my party?
One word: Very! We want to custom-tailor every event, which means we rely on your headcount to determine things like your lanes/party space, the amount of food we’ll need to prepare, and any added staff we may need to make your child’s party the best it can be. An accurate headcount also saves you money, since we are unable to refund the costs for any party guests who are unable to attend your event. Remember, we can always accommodate more guests if space allows.
When’s the best time to schedule my party?
There’s really no “best” time—but some times are better for some parties than for others. Many of our centers assume a more adult-oriented atmosphere after about 9 p.m., so we’d definitely advise against scheduling your child’s family-friendly birthday party at, after, or around this time. If you’re unsure, feel free to ask one of our party planning professionals—they’re happy to answer any and all of your questions!
I know that some establishments “pre-set” shoes for an event… why don’t you do that?
Simple—because we care about you. It’s true. We avoid pre-setting shoes because it forces your guests to search around for their right size. That takes time—time that you could be bowling! So instead, we have all of our guests simply visit the front desk and ask for their size in person. (If you’ve ever tried to watch a giddy horde of 8-year-olds fall over each looking for bowling shoes, you know exactly what we’re trying to avoid…)
What if I want bumpers during the event? (We expect a lot of gutterballs.)
Then bumpers you shall have! Whether you’ve got kids on the lanes or adults who haaaate gutterballs, bumpers are available and can be requested at any time—right up through when you show up for your event. If you haven’t completed your reservation already, just indicate your request for bumpers in the “additional information” box of the Guest Info section.
What staff will be available to keep my guests happy and my party rolling?
Our lane servers! They’re here to help you with everything from imputing your child’s name into the scoring systems to serving your child’s party guests all of the delicious, kid-friendly food of our laneside menus. And while all events receive exceptional guest care from our servers, parties do not receive private hosts unless they are specifically requested and added (for an additional charge) to your event.
How do you serve food during your events? Is it sit-down or on the lanes?
Our bowling parties are all about action—so you shouldn’t expect traditional seated dining for your event. Instead, we set up buffets right behind your lanes so that you never have to deal with the complicated back-and-forth of separate lanes and party rooms. Kids love it because they can eat while they play; parents love it because it makes keeping track of their child’s guests so much easier; and we love it because you love it! (It’s a win-win-win.) If you do happen to require a private party space, please speak with our party professionals to see what options may be available.
Are there any activities besides bowling that we can add to my child’s party?
You betcha! When it comes to our kids parties, bowling is just the beginning. Our venues feature a host of activities that you can enjoy off the lanes, with some centers featuring arcade games, rec-room classics like billiards, ping pong, and air hockey, as well as larger scale amusements like laser tag at select locations. Give us a call to learn more about all the fun features and party packages available at your nearby centers!
I’m a chef/my friend’s a chef/I know this great caterer, so... Can I bring in my own food & drinks?
You know that we’d love to accommodate, but unfortunately, no outside food or beverage is allowed into our venues with the exception of birthday cakes. We do this to ensure the health and safety of all our guests (since so many people these days have allergies, we want to limit the possibility of anyone experiencing a preventable allergic reaction from an outside ingredient). Plus... have you tried our food? That’s something we wouldn’t want to deny anyone!
“They were very accommodating in every way possible. It was a FABULOUS time, and the kids had a GREAT TIME.”
