Birthday Parties

Reservation Update for Fall 2020

Due to restrictions on the overall capacities for bowling and recreation centers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Underground is not taking birthday party requests at this time.

Birthday Packages- Not Currently Offered

The Underground is a family-friendly place to hold a birthday party for kids of all ages!

After you submit your request, the Underground Staff will contact you to confirm center availability and event details. Please note that submitting a request does not confirm your birthday or event.  Birthday Party Reservations must be confirmed 7 days in advance of the party date.
