Birthday Party FAQs (with answers!)
How much does an Aspley 10 Pin Bowl party cost?
We need 50 of your favourite dollars as a booking deposit - it's the only way to keep Meryl from accounts happy. Then, we need the final balance prior to the start of the party.
What is the minimum number of guests for a birthday party booking?
A minimum of six (6) guests will get the party started.
If there are more than 6 children coming, how many lanes would be booked for a party?
A minimum of 2 lanes will be booked side-by-side.
If I was to hire a Full-Time Host for my child’s party, what do they do?
Save the lives of parents, that's what! Your party host will keep the kids entertained on the day and sort out all the nitty gritty organisational details before. But remember: your party host is not an actual parent, so while he/she will guide activities for the duration of the party, we still need the parents, guardians or carers to stay close for supervision.
What does a 'carer' mean?
A carer is a parent, guardian or adult responsible for supervising the party kids and acts as a touchpoint for our hosts. We recommend that carers are present for the duration of your party. Carers are there to ensure the kids are all in attendance during each activity, escort the kids to the bathroom and ensure they are behaving appropriately in the venue. If there is a problem the host will inform the carers, so it is necessary to remain in the venue to be able to supervise the party.
Can I bring my own birthday cake?
Yes! But if you can't face the hassle of baking, you can always purchase an ice cream cake from our optional extras.
Can I / we bring my own food?
Nope, sorry. It's not you, it's us: our food options are just way too yummy, so you must experience it! One exception: If you need special munchies to cater for food allergies, just give us a heads' up.
Where do we eat?
While we don’t allocate party tables until the day of trade, these will either be setup in the concourse area or in a party room, subject to availability.
Can Aspley 10 Pin Bowl organise party invitations?
Absolutely! Head into Aspley 10 Pin Bowl to pick some up!
Do you provide bowling socks?
Nope. Remember to remind all guests to bring their own pair of socks! Socks are also available for purchase in venue.
What time should I arrive for our party?
We suggest arriving 15 to 30 minutes before your start time: this will help with organising shoes, food, details etc, and ensure that your party begins on time and that none of the guests miss out on any of the fun. Your party will commence at the booking time. Latecomers can still be added onto the scoring system's scorecard to allow a catch-up with everyone else.
