Birthday Parties

"The kids had a great time.  The lifeguards were visibly attentive since there were others in the pool besides our group."
"We could not have been more pleased with the promptness, courtesy, assistance and effectiveness of our pre-party emails with Carol. At the event, we were very impressed with how friendly and helpful all of the staff were. Several made a point of coming up to us, introducing themselves, and directing us toward help if needed. The facilities were not only top-notch, but also in excellent condition."
"This was a wonderful experience for our daughter, her friends and our family. I would and have been recommending it to others!"
"The staff was helpful and visible and it was extraordinary that you were able to think of a suitable place for our retreat. We were afraid that we wouldn't be able to find another space after our original space (not in the rec) was booked over!"
"We had a wonderful experience at the climbing wall!! The kids at the birthday party enjoyed themselves immensely, and the staff were excellent. Kristen and Scott were working the event and were patient with the kids and informative with us. Jim also helped us get settled and showed us around. He was helpful and friendly. Thanks so much for an excellent birthday party!! All of the kids are talking about it!"
"Outstanding event from start to finish! More people need to know about this."
