WAIVER FORMS

VERY IMPORTANT! Please ensure that each of your guests receives and signs a participant waiver form. A parent or legal guardian must sign a form on behalf of their child. Have guests complete the waiver online prior to your party. Any parents or adults entering the gym need to sign a waiver for themselves as well.

You can find the waiver online here: Child Waiver Form (under 18 years) - Adult Waiver Form (18 years & older) - Printable forms can be found here.

ATTIRE

Remind your guests to wear appropriate clothing. Shorts, sweat pants, leggings, t-shirts, sweat shirts, gymnastic suits, or other comfortable clothes that you can move in are best. Avoid skirts, dresses, and restricting costumes. No jeans, jewelry, zippers, belts, buckles, or other sharp decorations as they may damage the equipment. Please be aware that participants may not be allowed on all the equipment if dressed inappropriately. Barefoot is safest so avoid wearing socks or leotards the cover the feet. Long hair must be tied back. Flip Factory is exceptionally clean! We have a 'no shoes past the front entrance' policy for participants and spectators. Anyone leaving the entrance area mats must remove their shoes.

PARTY FORMAT

20 minutes prior to your party's start time the host family is welcome to arrive and begin set up in their party room. Guests should arrive close to party time. Guests who arrive early will be directed to wait in your party room. All parties are held as private bookings which means you will have your gym space all to yourself!

Flip Factory Parties: Your party will start with 1 hour and 15 minutes in the gym with a Flip Factory coach leading the activities. We start the party with pit games to burn off some energy and ensure that all guests have arrived (3-5 minutes), a short head to toe stretch (3-5 minutes) followed by a safety orientation (8-10 minutes). It is important that any parents wanting to have fun with the kids are present for this safety orientation. Flip Factory parties are designed for maximum fun, minimal risk and lots of activity! The gym is set up as a giant obstacle course with colorful arrows to keep everyone moving and safe. We utilize trampolines, tumble track, gymnastics mats, beams, bars, a climbing wall, a giant foam pit and lots of other fun gym equipment. The balance of the party is spent with participants having fun in a semi-structured environment.

The last 45 minutes will be spent in a private party room for cake, gifts, and celebration! A fridge, freezer, and microwave are available for your use. You are welcome to bring in your own food or have it delivered. Decorations such as banners, balloons, table cloths, and birthday candles are welcome. We ask that you do not bring in any sparklers, confetti, or piñatas. At the end of your party time guests should be sent on their way. The host family is welcome to stay an additional 20 minutes to pack up and clean up their space.

Extreme Parties: Extreme Parties start with 1 hour and 15 minutes in the gym with a Flip Factory coach leading the activities.. We start the party with games to burn off some energy and ensure that all guests have arrived (3-5 minutes), a short head to toe stretch (3-5 minutes) followed by a safety orientation (8-10 minutes). It is important that any parents wanting to have fun with the kids are present for this safety orientation. All participants in a Ninja Warrior party must be 8 years and older. The gym is set-up as a giant obstacle course using all of the Ninja Warrior obstacles -- curved wall, salmon ladder, giant monkey bars, ropes, trampoline, trampowall, and hanging obstacles.

Tot Spot Parties: Tot Spot parties are different from Main Gym & Extreme parties. As these parties cater to 1 to 4 year olds, we find that a safe, fun set up which encourages exploration and activity is best. A Tot Spot party facilitator will be on hand to ensure equipment is safely configured. Parents are expected to be actively watching their children in the play area. Tot Spot parties start with an hour in the play area, we would encourage eating and gifts at the half way point, followed by more activity in the Tot Spot play area if time permits.
