Birthday Party Packages

Basic package - $4 per skater (minimum $40 or 10 people)

  • Each skater will receive: skate rental coupon, popcorn coupon, hot chocolate coupon.
  • Each party will be scheduled in a two hour time slot.
      Option 1: Reindeer Run Sledding Hill: You may pre-purchase wristbands for designated times so you are guaranteed to have a sled during the party time. Cost is $3 per person for 30 minutes of sledding and there is a limit of 25 sledders per time slot.
    • Option 2: Reindeer Run Sledding Hill private rental: You may rent the sledding hill for $60 per 30 minute time slot. Private rentals can only occur during non-standard operating hours. We do not limit the number of people that are allowed to sled on the hill during a private rental - that is the renter's discretion.
