NUMBER OF GUESTS – Discuss with your child, and decide how many guests to invite to the birthday party, allowing for siblings and relatives, to be taken into account:
TIME GymBus birthday parties can be for 1hr or 1.5hrs for older children. Have the guests arrive at least 15 minutes before the bus. This allows for latecomers, present opening, general welcoming as well as chatty parents. When deciding on a time consider the age of the children. Younger children respond better to an early part of the day. Advise your guests the time the GymBus will be coming and to wear appropriate play clothes. Allow 30-45 minutes at the end for the party food and birthday cake. A total of 2-2.5 hours from start to finish, works best for most ages.
Please note that the GymBus can be up to 15 minutes late depending on traffic and weather conditions. In this instance, we will still stay for the full 1 hour or 1.5 hours (depending on what you have booked). If we are running late we will advise you of our estimated time of arrival.
VENUE If you’re planning your party at home.
PARKING THE GYMBUS Consider the following when choosing a parking spot for the Gymbus:
We recommend that the Gymbus parks on the street outside your house. If your street is busy, a park is always a great alternative, perhaps the local school or a hall. Ensure GymBus has your mobile number so we can contact you anywhere. Arrange for the parents to drop guests off at least 15 minutes before the Gymbus, and move cars away from the GymBus parking area. It is a good idea to park your own cars where you want the GymBus and move them when the GymBus arrives. Balloons on the letterbox or nearby tree will assist us and your guests locate you.
Your childs birthday party is not considered confirmed unless full payment has been made at the time of booking. Please check the date and time on your confirmation. As the children arrive, have a drink and perhaps some fruit for them to snack on while they wait for the GymBus and other guests. Have a couple of birthday party games prepared to fill in time if needed. Ensure the space you have allowed for the GymBus is clear- section it off if necessary. Set up a present table, as the gifts arrive, put them on the table, either to be opened later or for safe keeping. Wet ones come in very handy, especially for younger children and a big bag for the presents if your childs birthday party is not at home. We recommend that no party food be served while the GymBus activities are in progress. Having the main meal afterwards is preferable for the children as the activities are very physical. If it is raining, have an umbrella and some old towels handy.
BOOKING ALTERATIONS Cancelling, altering or rescheduling a booking within 48 hours of the event date will result in a forfeit of 50% of the total cost. At all other times, a $75.00 charge will apply.
