“The easiest birthday party I have ever planned! Air Riderz makes it incredibly easy and convenient to host birthday parties. From online booking of the event, to food orders to having your own amazing host to prepare the food, serve and clean up.... you couldn't have asked for more! The facility is clean. It's not as crowded as other places and the staff are fantastically friendly. Well worth it! Highly recommend this place! ”

“Great place for kids - don’t go on the climb if you are afraid of heights - they have cubbies for your jackets and boots and they also have complimentary smaller lockers for your purse or cellphone or keys and whatnot. If you are a support worker, you can let the front desk agent know and they will comp your ticket. They have a dodgeball court which makes you exhausted and 3 basketball nets which in my opinion is the greatest.”
