I recently hosted my daughter's 5th birthday here. They claim to be the MOST reasonably priced party place in the area and at first glance it does seem so.... until the costs keep adding up. I wouldn't mind paying if I felt that I was getting my money's worth, and this place definitely doesn't give you that. A place hosting theme parties should at least have some decent invites (included in the price) Instead they look like cheap, dull, cardboard flyers for the business that no parent would hand out. I asked for a tray of popcorn chicken and was given a price of 100 bucks. Are you kidding me??????? And the pinata ($34) was tiny and none of the kids could do anything with it. The girls hosting the party were not bad, but everything was so rushed, the overall impression wasn't very nice. It was like the kids were constantly being hustled around. I didn't even realise that my daughter's birthday cake was being cut, until the candles had been blown and the cake taken away from the table. The tattoos, face paint and make up were all cheap and minimal and if you hadn't arrived by the first 5 minutes of the party, too bad, you missed out. And the food was pretty bad, though the cake was AMAZING! But what i disliked the MOST was that we paid extra by mistake and and though we realised it almost immediately, the lady refused to return the money by blatantly lying outright. She lied as well about the deposit we had given her, cos she didn't provide us with a receipt. Also, she didn't give us a bill, so why should she be adding 8.75% sales tax when she's obviously not going to be paying her taxes? And to top it all off, she had the cheek to demand a tip. All in all, although the kids did have fun, I could have provided waaay more for them for the $1000 that I spent. This experience has made me leery of all such party organisers.

The one word that best describes the owner of this place is CHEAT!!!! She charges you a pretty penny for some cheap tricks, third rate supplies, the dirtiest bathroom I have ever seen and a couple of hours of complete humiliation. She
