Policies and Helpful Hints.

Height and Age Restrictions

For the safety of all guests some of our activities have minimum height and age restrictions (see chart below).  In order to participate in an activity, the guests must meet the minimum requirement.  We do not make exceptions.

All height and age restrictions on activities apply.  These are strict restrictions, ‘almost’ means they cannot participate.

Laser Tag:  48” or taller to play after 6:00 PM and 44” or taller to play before 6:00PM.

Bumper Boats: 44” or taller to drive the boat, 40” or taller to ride must ride with an adult 18 years old or older.

          Go-Karts: 56” or taller to drive, 40” or taller to ride must ride with a licensed driver 18 years old or older.

Play Zone: For the larger section: Between the ages of 11 and 3, and at least 36” tall.  There is a smaller area for children under 36” tall or under 3 years old.

Guests whose height may be in question are measured at the main cashier for retail guests or in one of the picnic areas for group outing members.  Attendants at each activity may also restrict someone from participating if they do not meet the height requirement.  For the safety of children being measured, a standard play shoe which does not contribute excessively to the child’s height is permitted. Platform shoes, boots, or any other similar shoes that artificially adds to the child’s height are prohibited to be worn in order to meet this height requirement.

Party Guest Details and Add-ons

*Note, we refer to guests participating in activities (skating, playzone) to be “players”.  We refer to guests not participating in the activities but requiring reserved seating as “non-players”.  We refer to the individual reserving the party space and their additional complimentary non-player guest as the “party hosts”.

All packages are priced to include eight player guests and two non-player guests (party hosts).  There is no maximum for the number of player guests (see below for maximum non-player guests permitted).  However, you will be charged for 80% of the packages (both player and non-player guests) you reserve.  We will need to know the final number of players and final number of non-players 6 days prior to your event so that we can ensure your party is provided the appropriate seating and cupcake count.   Please call 330 345-4386 ext 102 or send an email to party@acresoffun.com with a final count which is due six days prior to your scheduled party.

 In order to guarantee seating for guests, each guest must have a player package (which includes activity, food, and reserved seat at party table) or non-player package (food only and reserved seat at party table).  Included in the party package is a non-player package for two party hosts. 

The number of non-players packages are limited to the number of player guests.  (Ex. There are 8 player guests at the party, a maximum of 6 additional non-player packages may be added to the party.  Note the number of non-player packages does not include the two complementary non-player packages for party hosts.)

Additional food or activity purchases made during the party may only be purchased by the party host before final payment is made. 

 Timeliness

Please be on time for your party.  We cannot extend your party time as we may need the seating for the next party.

You are welcome to stay after your party time is over but you will need to move to another table outside of the party area so we can prepare for the next party at your tables.
