> Most commonly asked questions

Will my location have mileage fees?

  • It may, but off the top, Milton Burlington, Mississauga, Oakville for sure do not have additional travel fees
  • Travel fees are $25 to $50, any location requiring a greate fee would be out of our range for a birthday party
  • Please contact us for an exact quote

What’s the difference between a small and a large group experience?

  • This is important, a large group will have more of an action show, lots of fun, plenty of hands-on interactions, but at a quicker pace to ensure everyone has fun, and that the kids don’t get restless.
  • A smaller show is more laid back with the ability to take more time and have everyone more involved. Both are great, just a different kind of energy.
  • While our shows are fun for both small and large groups, we find that the sweet spot is somewhere between 12 and 18 kids.

What if I have 31 kids?

  • After 30 children you’ll be in our event pricing category which is a million times more expensive.
