I booked a Jam Time party, what’s next?

After you book a party and pay your $100 deposit, we will send you an initial email confirmation confirming all of the details. We will next touch base a few days before the party via email to re-confirm all of the party details, to get a final head count for the number of kids, and to ask if you would like to add any pizzas to the party.

What happens if I need to cancel my party or if Jam Time is shut down due to Covid-19?

All party deposits are non-refundable if you decide to cancel your party.
