THE BIG DECISION: WHERE TO HAVE A BIRTHDAY PARTY?

Looking for birthday party ideas in San Diego? So here we are; it’s time  for the big decision.  Where will your child have his/her next birthday party? We know this question is often accompanied by moderate to high levels of anxiety for parents.  There’s a lot on the line here i.e. your child having a great time, you taking responsibility for your child’s friends for a few hours, insuring that all details are covered, and of course keeping your sanity.  Lots of concerns and ULTRAZONE handles them all to ensure the best birthday party experience for everyone.

After every Birthday Party at The ZONE we request feedback from the parents. Of course we realize that you will assume that we tossed all the bad feedback forms, but actually there really aren’t any bad ones, just different degrees of stellar ones. Our lack of modesty is noted!

Here is a PDF of our Laser Tag Birthday Party ZONE Feedback.

BEFORE YOU MAKE A RESERVATION: INFORMATION IS POWER

Let’s keep it simple, here is basic information about what’s included in our birthday party packages:

  • 2 games of ULTRAZONE laser tag (scroll down to check out some cool “Third Game Free” opportunities)
  • ULTRAZONE staff hosts the party the entire time, which means they supervise game play, serve the food, and entertain the kids with fun interaction about laser tag
  • Parents have no responsibility; you just relax and enjoy the good time
  • Food: Pizza from Domino’s
  • Beverages: Soft drinks and/or bottled water
  • All party set-ups are provided including plates, napkins, forks, cups and even candles
  • A birthday present for the birthday kid of 2 free games good for a future date
  • Party favors of 2 for 1 passes for all guests good for a future date
  • You can bring any cake or cup cakes

NOTE ICE CREAM AND ICE CREAM CAKES ARE NOT PERMITTED – EVER!

  • Birthday parties are 2 hours in length
  • Invitations: we provide a cool invitation; check it out below

AGE RESTRICTION: Please note that all guests must be at least 7 years old to play ULTRAZONE

BIRTHDAY PARTY PRICING: LET’S GET TO THE BOTTOM LINE

  • $258.00 plus tax for 8-person minimum package price.
  • $26.00 plus tax for each additional guest.  You can add as many as you like.
  • We have parties of all sizes from 8 up to game capacity at 36 – sometimes even up to 72. Wow now that’s a big party!

 

MAKING A RESERVATION: THE BIG PHONE CALL

Ah, verbal communication; a dying experience.  Yes, we really enjoy talking with you and you seem to enjoy talking with us.  You can phone us at (619)221-0100 or email us via our contact us.  Either way you will ultimately speak with a BIRTHDAY PARTY COORDINATOR.  The phone interaction will take less than 10 minutes and is actually quite pleasant.

PLEASE NOTE:  Reservations are required to have a birthday party at ULTRAZONE. 

Things we will talk about:

  • Your preference for date and time of the party
  • The number of guests that you are inviting- ALERT we realize that this may not be the number that ultimately attends
  • The credit card you will use to guarantee the reservation.
  • The number of other guests that might just hang out (like other parents)
  • Additional details that you are wondering about
  • You will receive an email confirmation
  • We will need to receive you “final guest count” via email or telephone absolutely no later than 3 days before the party.  We know the RSVP world is a true nightmare these days, but our world revolves around electronics and assigning equipment to party guests, so we really need that final count.

 

CANCELLATION POLICY AND OTHER BUSINESS STUFF

  • There is a 10 day cancellation or party date/time change policy- We know; Wow how business-like.

Once you make the reservation, you must speak only with a party coordinator to make any changes.  You have until 10 days prior to the party to: 1) change the date or time of the party; or 2) actually cancel the party.  The amount of your penalty would have been noted when you booked and in your email confirmation.

  • We know that this policy may seem rather strict and unforgiving, which would be an accurate observation.  After 20 years we have found that the only way we can insure the smooth operation of our birthday party program is to implement clear guidelines. Once you have the party we know you will appreciate our adherence to our policies.

 

THE DAY OF THE PARTY: HERE WE GO

  • Arrival

We ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to the party.

This may prove a distinct challenge as you will want to arrive much earlier than that due mounting anxiety and/or the excitement of the day.  Despite the feeling that this is a good plan- it really is a  bad plan.

  • The intensity of the lobby

When you arrive just approach the front counter and announce that you are here for a birthday party.  Regardless of  how crazy the facility might appear (as in a packed lobby) before you worry that you made a huge  mistake and that your party is ruined before it even starts; remember your party is completely scheduled in our system. That means the laser tag games, the food, and everything else.  You will be given a sign-in sheet and have a brief fun chat with the front counter staff.

  • Party host to the rescue

Ultimately your party host will introduce themselves and a sigh of relief might occur while the good times begin.

  • Parents should return for pick up 10 minutes prior to the end of the 2 hour birthday party
