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 or oven, but it does have a 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.
