Children & Youth Party Info

DETAILS & SCHEDULING: The Package Price includes up to 10 children. Additional children may be added for an extra charge per child, corresponding to the particular package price. The rates are available by reservation only, and at least two weeks prior notice is recommended. Parties requested later than this will be accepted based on the availability of lanes as well as a party host.

We will gladly hold the date and time you request via telephone for up to 48 hours. A formal reservation will be scheduled once customer pays the deposit and completes and signs our party registration form at Idle Hour Lanes. Invitations will also be provided at this time. The minimum deposit amount required is $20.00.

Please encourage your guests to arrive 15 minutes prior to party time so each child may check in and receive bowling shoes from your host. The activity period, which is the first 75 minutes of your party, will begin promptly at party time, and will be followed by 60 minutes in your private party room! In order to comfortably accommodate all customers and events daily, we must adhere to this schedule.

FOOD and BEVERAGE POLICY: As we currently do not provide a cake, you are encouraged to bring your own cake or cupcakes. We cordially request that NO other DRINKS or FOOD items be carried into our establishment by patrons because we have an agreement with the restaurant on premises that they are to provide all food and beverages consumed within same establishment. Thank you for your understanding.

FOOD ALLERGIES: If any of your guests have food allergies, please inform us. We will always accommodate your guests, either by providing an acceptable alternative or allowing them to bring a menu item to us for preparation.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If you need to cancel your party, we will gladly work with you to reschedule it at a later available date. Deposits are non-refundable if party is cancelled 3 days or less prior to your reservation.

INCLEMENT WEATHER: We remain open during inclement weather, and take all measures to ensure the safety of our patrons. Our parking area is well maintained.
