Frequently Asked Questions
How many people am I allow and what if I have additional swimmers?
If you are planning to bring extra swimmers, please make sure to specify within your booking add-ons to add additional swimmers and non-swimmers (facility fee) to your booking so we may best accommodate you. You may also add guests on the day of your party if it is within the parameters listed below.
All parties have the option to add on additional non-swimmers (facility fee) for only $5 per person. All guests entering the facility must pay a Session Pass, Day Pass or Facility Fee. Discounted session/day passes are available for only $10 for additional swimming party guests.
10 wristbands are included for each Plunge Party and Premium Party, which includes both swimmers and non-swimmers. 16 wristbands are included for the VIP Party and 25 wristbands are included for the Private Party.
Maximum number of guests for the Plunge and Premium Party is 20 guests and then an additional space will need to be rented. Maximum number of guests during a VIP Party is 40 guests and the maximum capacity for Private Parties is 150.
May I bring my own food & drink?
Guests can bring a cake or birthday treat for party goers as well as sealed bottles of water. We do not allow any outside food or drink as we have direct catering services available for parties. No alcoholic beverages or glass containers are permitted within the facility. However, guests can consume alcoholic beverages at the Beach House restaurant connected to the Plunge facility. Private parties do have the option to bring outside food and drink with pre-approval by The Plunge management team. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for approval after booking your private party.
Will other guests be in the facility?
If booking a Plunge Party, Plunge Premium Party, or VIP Plunge Party, we are still open for public and member use. Private parties from 6:00pm to 8:00pm are allowed exclusive access to our obstacle course in the shallow end. We reserve the right to have swim lessons or other programs occurring during Private Parties if needed, but will be cognizant of the exclusive space.
What should I bring?
You are welcome to bring goodie bags, sealed bottles of water, a cake or birthday treat, and decorations for your party. Please remember to bring utensils for your guests, as we do not always have the provided utensils and/or lighters for candles on hand. We also have swim equipment (i.e., lifejackets, pool noodles, and kickboards) included for your use. Towel service is also available as an add on when booking. The only party that includes 10 towels is the Premium Party.
Can I extend my party time?
Parties booked for a 12:00pm – 2:30pm booking may extend to a full day (12pm-5:30pm) option for only $100 more for Plunge and Premium Parties. VIP Parties can be extended into an extra session for $250. We do not allow extended bookings per hour. Additional parties will be available during our “summer schedule.” Private parties are limited to the 6:00pm – 8:00pm time frame due to our current hours of operation.
Am I allowed to decorate?
Yes, we encourage guests to make their space memorable! We do not allow confetti, glass or anything that will cause damage to our facility. Guests often decorate their reserved bay space 15 minutes prior to their reservation time. We supply a 6-foot food table that you are welcome to decorate in addition to your designated space. Guests must clean up their reserved area at the completion of their party and dispose of the trash in an appropriate location.
What if I stay past my reservation time?
Parties must be wrapped up and out of the facility no later than 15 minutes past their designated time. A $50 late fee will be assessed for any parties staying longer than the 15-minute courtesy grace period. If available, then parties may have the option to extend their rental into an extra session for only $100 for Plunge Parties and Premium Parties or $250 for VIP Parties.
What is the difference between a Plunge Party, Premium Party, and a VIP Party?
These three party options are available for 2.5-hour rentals and the ability to order food with our partner catering services. The Plunge Party and Premium Party both include 10 wristbands while 16 wristbands are given for a VIP Party. A basic description of each package is provided below:
Plunge Party – A dedicated Lounge with a couch and adequate furniture plus a 6ft food table.

VIP Party – Private, elevated deck seating with four tables and 16 chairs with direct access to the Beach House restaurant.
Do my 10 guests include non-swimmers?
The ten wristbands supplied may be used for anyone in attendance. It is recommended reserving your 10 wristbands for swimmers since extra swimmers will be an additional $10 rather than an additional $5 per non-swimmer (facility fee). All guests must pay to enter the facility.
Do you only host birthday parties?
No, we host all types of parties and events! We have had bachelorette parties, bachelor parties, bah mitzvahs, Quinceanera’s, school outings, grad nights, etc. We also host photo shoots and video shoots with companies such as Speedo and Nike! Our venue is perfect for any event that you can imagine!
Is my deposit refundable and when do I pay my balance?
The $100 deposit for all party bookings is non-refundable, but we will try our best to accommodate a change of date or to meet your needs. For guests booking an entire day party, two deposits will need to be made and two separate reservations will need to happen. The remaining balance due for parties will be paid on the day of your party.
How do I check availability and book a party?
Please create a family account in iClassPro and check the calendar for your preferred party date. Once you locate a day and package that works for you, please proceed with the booking process, and add on any food items and additional guests at that time. All food orders must be placed at least 48 hours in advance. Food orders on the day of the party might be able to be accommodated based on demand.
If I order food then what time will it be delivered to my party and can I order more food the day of the party?
We try to have all food delivered approximately one hour after the start of your party. We order food from local restaurants and partners so sometimes food orders may be delayed based on their seasonal demands. We require 48 hours notice for all food orders so that our partners have adequate time to prepare. Same day orders might be able to be accommodated if the daily demand on our partners is not overwhelming. To guarantee food for your party you must pre-order. All parties also have the option to leave the facility to eat outside and then return during their rental time. No outside food or drink other than a birthday treat and sealed bottles of water is allowed in the facility. We have a shack shack with drinks and food available available for purchase.
Is the Guest of Honor included in the guest count and what do they get?
The Guest of Honor is not included in the guest count and has a complimentary pass to the Plunge with the party booking. The Guest of Honor will also receive a Plunge Gift Pack that might include things such as a special wristband, free snack item and a free day pass to return another day.
