What are the COVID-19 Protocols in place?
The Backyard is committed to following all government regulations and public health guidelines including physical distancing, frequent handwashing and hand sanitizing, avoiding touching your face, not sharing food or drinks, sneezing or coughing into your elbow and staying home if you are feeling ill.
As of July 11th, 2021 masking is optional for staff and guests.
We have a robust cleaning procedure which includes sanitizing the entire party space in between each event using hospital grade disinfectant to ensure you have a clean, safe space for your event.
How much time do we have?
Parties are 2.5hrs long. You will have access to the inflatables for the first 2hrs of your party. The inflatables will be closed for the last 30 minutes for cleaning. This will be a great time to do cake and presents in your private party room.
Please do not show up early as you will not be allowed entry until just prior to your party's start time.
How many inflatables will there be able to play on?
We will have 4-6 inflatables set up. The set up of inflatables may vary from week to week. We choose the inflatables to maximize the fun for kids ages 12 and under.
Do you provide plates, forks, etc?
We will provide plates, cups, forks and knives for your party as well as napkins.
We provide all reusable dinnerware at The Backyard in an effort to decrease the amount of waste we produce. As a result we also ask that you help us ensure all compostables and/or recyclables make their way into the correct bins.
Can we bring our own decorations?
You are welcome to bring in some table decorations. We do not permit items to be hung from the walls or taped/stuck to the tables.
Can we arrive early to set up?
Please do not arrive early. We will be cleaning and sanitizing the inflatables with hospital-grade disinfectant between each booking and we need this time to thoroughly clean the space.
If you arrive early, please wait in your vehicles or away from the door to avoid congestion until your scheduled party time.
Are you fully accessible?

Yes - if you would like to do this please advise your Backyard Party Host. You will be provided with complimentary drip coffee but additional food/beverages can be added to your tab. Tabs must be paid in full at the conclusion of the event.
Can adults go on the inflatables too?
