Thank you! The party went great and Tory was fantastic! All of the kids had a great time and was a fun event. Mckayla really had a wonderful time on the ice and in the party room.
Ted, October 2014
Thank you Stephanie and Emily. I felt like the party was seamless and the easiest party I've ever held (and I have 3 daughters... That's a lot of parties!). I give thanks to you, Stephanie, as you are an excellent organizer and was extremely prompt for my requests and Emily for her sweet demeanor and flexibility with energetic girls...
Bev, October 2014
Faith and Sierra did a wonderful job. They accommodated to my needs as well as my guests. I can't believe how calm and patient they were. But most, they knew how to work with kids. They were wonderful party captains and added the pleasantry of the party and made it easy for me. They made the party a success.

Thank you for making this one of the easiest and most fun birthday parties ever. All the kids had a great time and Jamie had a blast. Emily and Rachel were AWESOME! They were so nice and all the kids really liked them.

Jade had a wonderful time and wants to have her party there again. Big thanks to Deanna for making everything go smoothly!
Rosanne, July 2014
I just wanted to pass along our thanks to Sharks Ice and especially our party captain today, Amy! She was a true joy and we so appreciated all she did to keep our party running smoothly. We felt she went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us keep track of all the little ones, assisting with bumps and bruises and keeping smiles on all of the kids' faces. We're so glad to have had our celebration at Sharks Ice and look forward to many more.
Stephanie, June 2014
We had a FABULOUS time! The boys and their parents all gave rave reviews on the entire day. Elijah said it was the best birthday ever!

Terms and Conditions
DEPOSIT, PAYMENT & PARTY CONFIRMATION
We require a deposit of $245.00 to book your child’s party. The $245.00 will be applied to the cost of 10 children in the party package. We accept Visa, MasterCard, cash and check. Parties are first come, first served. Party date and time is considered confirmed once a credit card has been put on file for the deposit of $245.00 or has been processed from online booking, and a confirmation from the Party Coordinator has been emailed to you. Upon payment, you agree to the following terms and conditions.
ROOM, TABLE ARRANGEMENTS & AGENDAS
The size of your child’s party will determine the table layout and location within the party room. We set up birthday party areas according to the size of the party and how many parties are booked that day; we can take requests for a certain area within party room or in Stanley’s, but we cannot guarantee specific locations. We reserve the right to relocate your party to a more appropriate area should your expected attendance significantly change or our facility schedule changes. All birthday parties will be joined on the ice at once along with the Public Session.
CATERING & ADDITIONAL FOOD
Please review our Catering Menu for additional food options. All pizzas and platters are made on-site and ordered specifically for your child’s birthday party. So that the Party Coordinator may order the fresh foods necessary, we require a guest count and catering selection no later than the Wednesday prior to your child’s birthday party, unless otherwise noted. Menu pricing does include sales tax. Although you can order some items on the day of your child’s party, not all catering items will be available. Some catering items may not be cancelled after placing your order.
CAKE & OUTSIDE FOOD
We allow a store-bought cake, cupcakes or other dessert for your child’s birthday party. We have both a fridge and freezer to store your dessert. We cannot allow any other outside food to be brought into our facility due to the County Health Code and facility rules. If you do not find what you are looking for on our Catering Menu, the Party Coordinator would be happy to work with you on providing other options for your party. Candy in goodie bags is acceptable. Food restrictions due to allergies or religion should be brought to the attention of the Party Coordinator and limited arrangements can be made.
GUEST COUNT & MINIMUM CHARGES
The minimum guest count for a birthday party is 10 children. Should your party fall below 10 children, adults are welcome to skate in their place. We only charge for the number of children who attend the birthday party. Should this number fall below your guaranteed guest count, we will charge for the additional food provided in the package if applicable to price per person. If there are more children in attendance then the guarantee, we will provide food and bill accordingly to price per person. We like to have the estimated number of adults attending the party to ensure we provide enough space and cutlery for them. Should your adult attendance significantly increase, we may not be able to provide room for everyone based on the limited space for birthday party set-up. It is important to give an accurate estimate to the Party Coordinator when booking your child’s birthday party.
DECORATIONS & CLEAN UP
At this time, we do not provide decorations for birthday parties. We recommend bringing balloons and table decorations. White table cloths are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own as well. Please note that we do not allow silly string, loose glitter, piñatas or anything hanging from the ceiling. Banners may be a possibility depending which party area your child’s party is located. We allow parties to arrive no more than 30 minutes before their scheduled party time to decorate. Please refrain from using tape or other adhesives that would remove paint from the walls.
TIPS & GRATUITY
Gratuity is not included in the party package. If you would like to leave a tip for your Party Captain(s), it is based on your experience and enjoyment of the party. Any amount is sincerely appreciated.
