Frequently Asked Questions
Are we allowed to bring food into the party rooms?
Yes! We have a shared kitchen between our two party rooms and a refrigerator for each room. The kitchen does not have a stove, oven, or microwave. You're also welcome to bring in a crock pot or a hot plate if you need something warmed up.
What about clean up?
We completely understand normal wear and tear associated with a party and LaunchPAD staff cleans between each party. If an excessive mess is made or there is damage, it will be assessed and a damage fee (up to the price of reservation) will be incurred by the person who booked the party.
Can we come in early to set up?
Time is needed between parties to clean and re-set. Consequently, your group gains access to the party room 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time. The room will be locked until then.
What payment methods do you accept?
LaunchPAD accepts LaunchPAD gift certificates, cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. To expedite the check-out process, please use one form of payment only.
