Room Rental

All packages include a 90-minute room rental. Decorating setup/takedown needs to take place during the rental time frame. The room is approximately 675 square feet and includes 6 rectangular tables that are 6 feet long by 2.5 feet wide, along with chairs.


A $50 non-refundable deposit is due at booking and taken from the balance due.

Come to Play

Admission to BFK exhibits is included for the day of the party. Guests are encouraged to arrive early or stay late.


Parties include admission for the birthday child and up to 25 guests. Infants under 12 months are not included in the total guests. Additional guests can be added for an extra fee (see Party Boosters).  Invitees who have BFK memberships still count as guests.

Dropping Off Children

At the discretion of the party host, guests of the birthday child may be dropped off. A caretaker must sign the child in and out of the party and leave an emergency contact.

Supervision & Safety

The party host family is responsible for the supervision and safety of all children. BFK recommends 1 adult per 4 kids. No child should be left unattended.


Upon arrival, guests are required to register at the front desk and are able to leave gifts on the party cart. Guests are encouraged to play in the exhibits until the party announcement is made. Party hosts are welcome to use their party cart to unload their vehicle.


Party hosts are welcome to bring in food, as long as it requires no heating (no crock-pots or buffet warmers). Orders or delivered pizzas must be placed through BFK at least 3 days in advance.


Permitted decorations include tablecloths, table-toppers, centerpieces and party favors. BFK does not allow piñatas, silly string or hanging decorations on the wall or ceiling.
