Birthday Party FAQs

Rink area temperature averages 40-60 degrees year round. Our lobby averages 70 degrees during warmer months. Dress in warm, comfortable clothing that will not restrict movement (and dress in layers). Long pants and gloves or mittens recommended. Hats and helmets are recommended for beginning skaters. Dressing in layers gives you the option of removing a layer if you get too warm. Don't forget a tall, thin pair of socks!

You must wear socks to rent skates. One pair of tall, thin socks is recommended.

We recommend bringing a bicycle helmet for children and adults alike. We also have hundreds of loaner bike helmets sizes XS to XXL.

Child Toddler Size 6 Figure Skate (usually fits children around 2 years old). We also have double-bladed bob skates for kids.

Men's Size 14 Hockey Skate (fits men's size 16).

A parent chaperone can skate for the discounted price of $10 (which includes admission, skates and/or Spikey rental).

No. Our Skateguards will give an on-ice skating lesson during your party. With our lesson and skating aids, most kids who have never skated before learn to skate the first time on the ice and have a blast.

No. We do not allow walk-in parties or rent party rooms. We do not allow outside food/beverages, presents or birthday desserts. You ARE welcome to skate and then host the food/gift portion of the party at a different location.

Yes, but not necessarily during the party. The names of the children present for a Skatetown-hosted birthday party are entered into a drawing for a chance to ride the Zamboni (ice resurfacer). If your child's name is NOT drawn, you will be issued a certificate to come back and ride at a different time.

The GoKart ride is for your birthday celebrant only.

We don't allow outside food in the building. You may bring your own birthday cake or cupcakes if you book one of our party packages.

Additional cheese pizza $19.89 each; pepperoni pizza $22.04 each; three-meat pizza $24.19 each (prices subject to change without notice).

We require at 24 hours notice (prior to your party).

We supply napkins, cups, forks, spoons, plates and table covering.

You may bring your own paper products and decorations - just let us know before the day of the party. We do, however, ask that you do not attach anything to the walls or ceiling of the party room. No Silly String or confetti or table top glitter/confetti permitted. You will have 1 hour total time in the private party room, so you may want to recruit friends to help decorate. The café will set up the table and paper goods for you if you provide them in advance.

We surely do!
