Testimonials:

  • I could not have been more impressed. I initially emailed the general email asking about the rental. Calli Jean responded quickly and was very helpful with the reservation process. She sent waivers and directions ahead of time so I could include them with invites. She sent a follow up email closer the Friday before our reservation to see if I had any questions.  On the day of the rental, I could not have been more impressed with how knowledgeable, kind, engaged, and patient the two staff members working were with a group of third grade boys. They were set up and ready for us when we got there and really made the climbing experience run smoothly. The boys really liked them and they were wonderful role models! Staff was professional and kept things organized. They provided positive support while challenging and encouraging the little climbers. Very excellent customer service! I had never been in the Falcon Center and was impressed with the equipment and how clean the whole facility was. Thank you for a really terrific experience.
  • This was a really great experience for us and we will be recommending it to friends!  Thank you so much, (my son)'s 9th birthday was a blast.
  • The parents loved it, the kids loved it, and the staff was especially friendly and helpful!  Thank you!
  • Staff were so good with the kids.  They made sure that everyone was included, especially a girl who is exteremely shy.  Thank you!
  • What a great experience for the kids!  The staff were welcoming, friendly, and had great interaction with the kids.  It was an extremely positive experience!  Thank you!
  • The 2 students/staff that worked were fantastic.  Not only kind, but encouraging the kids to stretch their limits and get out of their comfort zones!!

There is no minimum age; however, parties are typically enjoyed most by kids seven and older.

Feel free to bring decorations!  We do provide a table cover.

Any food can be brought in as long as it is store bought in accordance with foodborne illness regulations.

Yes, we have a fridge and freezer to store cold food until you are ready to eat.

The Climbing Party is a private reservation for your group.  The wall is not open to people not in your group.

The Open Skate and Knowles parties are both during open recreation times so there will be other poeple using the facility at the same time.  You will, however, have the private room to yourself.

The party will begin with an overview of some safety rules and how to put on a harness.  From there, you can spend the rest of the two hours however you wish.  Parties typically begin with climbing, break for food and gifts after an hour, and use the remaining time to climb again.

Due to a high demand in private reservations and limited staff, only certain times are available for reservations.  To see available reservation times, click here.

Payment is made online when registering for a party. Additional climber costs can be paid during or after your party time onsite. We accept cash, check, or credit/debit.

An exclusive reservation of the space, table and chairs, flatware, cups, and utensils.

  • For Climbing Parties, two professional climbing instructors and all necessary climbing equipment is provided.
  • For Skating Parties, rental skates are provided.  Sizes range from youth 13 to adult 14 in both Figure and Hockey.
  • For Open Recreation, some basketballs, volleyballs, and soccer balls are available for checkout at the desk.

In general, we can work around rescheduled parties as we understand conflicts and illnesses arise; however, cancellations made within 48 hours of the party time may incur a small fee.  Please contact us as soon as you know you need to adjust your party and we can make changes.
