What are you doing about COVID-19?
Great question! The situation and regulations are ever-changing and we are keeping a close eye on them. Ultimately we want a safe place where everyone is comfortable. We will be operating with limited capacity as long as it is required to do so. This may mean that parties may have fewer guests…but we are still about the fun! We were already committed to regular cleaning and sanitation (kids are germ factories after all!), but now we are adding a few more sanitation rotations, removing smaller toys that might end up in mouths, doing health checks, and implementing a reservation system to allow us to better manage crowds.
When will Happy Hangout be open?
We plan on being open July 12, 2021. Delays in the supply chain have led to unforeseen hiccups in things like construction supplies and personnel.
What will the playground look like?
Right now we are keeping our specific design under wraps, but we can tell you that it will be floor-to-ceiling and made just for us! Check out our Facebook page for some cool sneak peaks!
What ages will this be for?
We allow kids ages 0-12. Although most areas will be more entertaining to the “Under 9” crowd, older siblings will still be able to find something that engages their minds and bodies. We will also have a special play area for those under 2 to enjoy.
What about those party rooms?
We have 2 of them! There will be varying party packages at different price points for whatever the occasion! We even have an option that allows you to have the place all to yourself! We also will offer fundraiser options for local schools and non-profits.
How will this benefit other members of the community?
We will have 2 party rooms that will not be in use all the time. We hope that the community will use these as meeting spaces, classroom spaces, and even for small business events. Craft pop-up shops, prenatal yoga, and post-partum support groups are just a few of our dreams! (If you are interested in our space, please keep in touch!!)
Will the playground be clean?
Yes!! As a mom I know how important it is to keep a place like this as germ-free as possible. Our playground will have an anti-microbial coating that gets reapplied quarterly. We will also have hand sanitizer stations and employees wiping down and spraying surfaces regularly.
Is this facility going to be sensory friendly?
We sure hope so! We are working with members of the community on ways to best serve these kids and families. We hope to eventually utilize one of the party rooms as a sensory-friendly room on weekdays; this will include dimmed lighting, white noise, comfy seating, etc. The ground level of our playground will also be handicapped accessible.
Do adults have to pay admission or buy memberships?
Nope. Since this is mostly a place for kids, only the kids will have to pay to play. Each child will need an adult with them to sign them in and be sure their waivers are up to date. After that, adults are free to follow their children into the play area, or simply watch from the parent seating area.
Do you sell food?
We will not be selling food but you are welcome to bring your own and eat it in the lounge areas and party rooms when you are having a party. No food or drink will be allowed in the play area, though.
