Tees & Cees (the serious bit) 

 

  • Weekend parties are for two and a half hours and include the time of a dedicated Enabler to ensure that your party meets your aspirations.  
  • The price is charged per head and we cannot refund no-shows on the day as catering is planned and prepared in advance. We require a minimum of 12 guests including the party child with a maximum of 35.  
  • Children’s food is included in the price per head.  
  • In the case of a joint party, only one free child place applies.  
  • During the explore time, it is at the discretion of the party organiser to decide which part of the Attraction they wish to spend their time (The Burrow is available to pre book for 30 minutes for under 7’s). It is the responsibility of the party organiser to have the children back in time for food. 
  • Any additional children who are not included in the party will be charged at the party rate of £9.60 and will not be catered for. We request that the guest list and any dietary requirements be sent via email at least 7 days before the party so that guests can sign in on arrival. Any children not on the list will be required to pay the admission fee. 
  • Actual numbers will be confirmed on the day, any additional guests will be added to the final bill. The balance must be paid in full on completion of your party. Please check your bill before payment as any discrepancies cannot be rectified later. 
  • You will have the use of a private party room for lunch. A trained Enabler will manage your event. Please be aware that there will be other parties running on the day and you may be requested to vacate the Party Room to facilitate another child’s party on completion of your 30-minute lunch booking.  
  • We remind guests that whilst the Enabler will help to ensure the smooth running of the event, it is the responsibility of the organiser to supervise the party and organise for other adults to help with the supervision. We require a 1:5 adult to children ratio. 
  • Each guest can bring one parent or guardian free of charge, who will not be catered for. 
  • We do not provide a birthday cake or candles. No candles are permitted on the premises. Party bags may be requested at a cost of £3.50 per child and contain a Eureka! notebook, a pencil, and an eraser or sharpener. 
  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your booking. 
  • Pay and Display Parking is available on the site. 
  • Children must remain under adult supervision at all times. At the end of the party, the organiser is responsible for making sure all children are collected by their parents and guardians before they leave Eureka!
