The FUN BUS parks on the street, driveway or parking lot. There must be 4 parking spots saved when we arrive and we must not be blocked in by other cars. There also must be a large enough double wide long driveway if not parked on the road or in a parking lot. Driver will assess upon arrival and has final say if it is safe to park. Obstacles like bushes, trees and fences may be a deciding factor. We usually park along the sidewalk in front of your house (school, church, park, etc). Party hosts typically reserve space for the bus by 1) parking their own cars in that space or 2) marking off the area with cones, chairs, large plastic toys, etc. We need approximately 50 feet of somewhat level space to park.
We try to arrive 10-15 minutes before FUN BUS activities are scheduled to start. Upon our arrival, one of our staff members will greet you, answer any questions and set up the bus. We may ask for your help with nametags, especially with younger guests.
One or two parents are welcome at the front of the bus at any given time. We ask that they remain at the front of the bus unless special circumstances need to be considered. It is also not necessary for any adults to remain on the bus, if they prefer not to do so. Two adults only are allowed in the drivers quiet area. Guests parents are welcome to come out for pictures at the end of the session or party.
Shoes are worn at all times for health and safety reasons. No flipflops or CROCS!
After the party we will collect the remaining balance due, if any. Tips for our staff are appreciated, but are left to your discretion.
