Birthday Parties at InMovement!2019-01-30T18:06:16-04:00

Birthday Parties

(1 to 12 years)
Queen Village & Bella Vista

Everyone has tons of fun in our fully equipped gym area. Our dedicated and enthusiastic instructors keep guests engaged in an hour of age appropriate activities, followed by a half-hour in our Party Room for food, drink and cake of course! We always allow time at the end of the party to enjoy some free play… with bubbles!

Once you book your date/location and select a party package, you choose a party type. Then two experienced InMovement teachers will handle everything from set up to clean up, making sure the party runs smoothly. Our job is to make sure the child and their guests have an amazing and memorable time!

Gymnastics Party

This party is packed with activities. The kids are entertained for an hour in the gym, from warm-up games and parachute fun to gymnastics tricks and obstacle courses. We incorporate aspects of gymnastics, rock climbing, games, dance, and more. This is a structured, instructor-led party.

Moon Bounce Party

This party type includes one hour of playtime with our 12’ x 12’ moon bounce while instructors engage the kids in tricks, obstacles, games and activities. This party has little structured time compared to the Gymnastics Party. It has more of an Open Play feel. However, the instructors are still very involved with the kids engaging them in different gymnastics tricks and games around the room.

2 Hour Combo

The Combo party is the best of both worlds. We start with free play while guests arrive. Our lead instructor will then begin the party with a circle time/warm up activity usually involving our parachute or a game. During that time, the 2nd instructor will be blowing up the moon bounce and reveal it as a surprise after circle time! For the rest of playtime, InMovement instructors engage the kids in tricks, obstacles, games, and activities all around the gym. Instructors will then lead guests into the Party Room for food, drink, and cake!

You bring the paper products earlier in the week. Our staff sets up the party room before you arrive, cleans up when the party is over, and does whatever they can throughout the party to ensure you have as little to do as possible. We want you to relax and enjoy your child’s celebration!

PARTY CONTRACT: After phoning in your deposit, you will receive a contract by email which will ask you for your preferred party type and party package as well as your child’s full name and date of birth. Please be sure to return your contract in a timely manner. Feel free to take a picture and send it to birthdays@phillyinmovement.com!

PARTY BALANCE: we will charge the full balance of the party to the card on file the Friday before its scheduled date unless other arrangements have been made.

PARTY HOSTS: You may have noticed that many of our InMovement party hosts also teach our classes at both locations. For that reason, we understand that your kiddos might have specific requests for who works their party! Please be mindful that we cannot always guarantee a specific teacher for hosting your party due to staff availability. Please notify us of any specific personnel requests at the time of booking…the week of your party we will reach out to let you know if we were able to honor your request.

WEATHER POLICY: During the Winter months, unpredictable weather conditions can pose a threat to scheduled parties. Not to fear! If conditions make travel unsafe and staff  are unable to get to the gym, we will reschedule your party. As long as we can get there and the city does not shut down, we will run your party!

ONLINE INVITATIONS: Evite is a free online service that is easy to use! Simply go to the website, or download the app and start designing. Evite also keeps track of how many guests RSVP’d! Please click here for more details.

Party Add-ons

Party Extension $50
Extend your party by thirty minutes. You can still choose between a gymnastics party and a moon bounce party or we can do a combination of both!

Party Favors $5 per child
If you don’t want our Ultimate party package we can still provide party favors, which include an InMovement water bottle stuffed with games and toys to keep the party fun going long after everyone’s gone home.

Additional Children $15-50 per child
You may have up to 25 children at your party for an additional $15 per child. Please note: While we can accommodate up to 25 children at your InMovement birthday party, we firmly believe that our best parties are those, which have no more than 18 children in attendance. A party with any more than 25 children is a safety concern and a fire hazard, and as such we ask that you not invite more than 25 kids to your party. If there are more than 25 children in attendance, we will charge a $50  inconvenience and liability fee per child for all additional children over our 25 child maximum. At our Percy St. location we like to cap our parties at 20 kids. We encourage that there are no more than 1 adult per child in attendance.

Additional Birthday Child $25 per child
You can have a joint birthday party with another family for a charge of $25 per additional birthday child. Exception: we do not charge if both birthday children are siblings.

“We appreciate YOU! We’ve followed Ms. Sara everywhere east of broad street since 2006… We love Parkour and gymnastics and every birthday party we’ve ever attended and open gym…”

What is the difference between a gymnastics party and a moon bounce party?2018-04-19T19:51:11-04:00

A gymnastics party is packed with structured activities lead by InMovement instructors. The kids are entertained for an hour in the gym, from warm-up games and parachute fun, to gymnastics tricks and obstacle courses.

A moon bounce party includes one hour of playtime with our 12′ x 12′ moon bounce. During this time, InMovement instructors engage the kids while they play with tricks, obstacles, games and activities but there is little structured time during the party.

Can I choose to lengthen my party time?2019-01-18T15:05:37-04:00

Provided there is not a birthday scheduled before/after your party slot, you may choose to extend your party by 30 minutes for an additional $50. If you know you would like to reserve two hours, please let the staff know when you make your deposit! After that, there are no guarantees we can extend your party. A two-hour combo party will include 45 minutes of playtime with our 12′ x 12′ moon bounce followed by 45 minutes of structured gymnastics activities. The last half hour will be spent in the party room enjoying refreshments and cake.

Can I do a joint birthday party with my child and a friend?2018-04-19T19:51:57-04:00

You can have a joint birthday party for an additional fee of $25 per each additional birthday child, with the exception of siblings who we do not charge extra for.

How many children are included in the party?2019-01-18T14:54:01-04:00

Our parties include up to 18 children. You may have additional children at your party (up to 25 children at Kenilworth St. and up to 20 at Percy St.) for an extra fee of $15 per child.

***Please note: While we can accommodate up to 25/20 children at your InMovement birthday party, we firmly believe that our best parties are those which have no more than 18 children in attendance. A party with any more than 25/20 children is a safety concern and a fire hazard, and as such we ask that you not invite more than 25/20 kids to your party. If there are more than 25/20 children in attendance, we will charge a $50 inconvenience and liability fee per child for all additional children over our listed maximum.

Can I upgrade my party package after booking?2018-04-19T19:52:43-04:00

You may upgrade your package up to the Monday before your party. After this, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to upgrade your package.

What is your Cancellation Policy?2019-01-18T14:48:08-04:00

If you cancel 30 days prior to your booked party, the deposit will be returned to your InMovement account as credit. Beyond that point you will lose the deposit.

What are in your party favors and how much do they cost?2018-04-19T19:53:22-04:00

Party favors are included in the Ultimate package but can be added on to any package for $5 each.  All party favors consist of an InMovement water bottle, a pass for one free open gym session, a tube of bubbles, a sticker sheet, and your choice between a jump rope, a scarf, or a beanbag.

How early can I arrive?2018-04-19T19:53:44-04:00

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled party time. The coordinators will assist you in carrying your refreshments to the party room. Children are not permitted to play inside the gym area until the party starts. If you should arrive too early, your party may need to wait in the lobby. Your party will start on time, so remind guests to be on time.

We recommend having one adult arrive 15 minutes early with refreshments while another brings the children at the designated party time.

What do I tell my guests to wear?2018-04-19T19:54:06-04:00

Children attending the party should wear comfortable clothing that they can move around in. Personal items should be left in the cubbyholes provided in the lobby. All guests will need to remove shoes before entering the gym and all children must be barefoot (no tights!)

What if siblings of guests show up that were not invited?2018-04-19T19:54:32-04:00

Uninvited siblings of guests can play games, puzzles, and color in the lobby. If they are in the gym area, they will be counted in the guest total, which can affect your balance at the end of the party. All children who are mobile (walking, crawling, etc.) count towards the guest total. Babies in a sling or carrier will not be counted towards the total.

I have a lot of adults that want to attend, are they charged?2019-01-18T14:44:25-04:00

No, adults are not included in the guest count; however, we have limited space for eating. If you are expecting a large number of children, we recommend requesting that each child be accompanied by only one adult (especially at our Percy St. location).

Are gratuities for the birthday staff permissible? What is the customary amount?2018-04-19T19:55:17-04:00

Tipping the birthday staff is acceptable and greatly appreciated, if you feel that they have helped you and your child have an enjoyable birthday experience at Philly InMovement.

15% of the birthday party cost is the traditional amount and InMovement staff may only accept cash tips.

Where should I order pizza from?2019-01-22T12:13:47-04:00
If you’re party is at the Percy Street location (610 S Percy St) please order from Little Italy (215) 922-1440.

If you’re party is at the Queen Village location (500 Kenilworth) please order from Little Italy 2 (267) 928-2920.

How many pizzas should I order? What time should I have them delivered?2018-04-19T19:56:04-04:00

We do not recommend more than 4-5 large pizzas. Please ask pizza providers to double-cut the slices. Pizza should be delivered one hour before the end of your party. We recommend ordering pizzas the day before your party.

If you have a morning party, you must place your order the day before your party to ensure the pizzas will be delivered on time.

Can the kids eat during the party or do they have to wait until the end?2018-04-19T19:56:30-04:00

Children need to wait until the designated eating time, the last half hour of the party.

Can the adults eat during the party?2019-01-22T12:12:23-04:00

Adults can eat in our designated food/drink area at any time though they are not included in the pizza count if your package includes pizza. Coffee, pretzels or bagels and fruit is a common food/beverage for adults. Alcoholic beverages are allowed.

Can I bring an outside vendor in (clown, super hero or magician, etc)?2019-01-18T14:40:10-04:00

Yes, with proper notice so that we can provide the optimal birthday celebration! If you are using a musician, actor, face-painter, or any other outside vendor please be sure to include that information when you send your contract. We need at least two weeks’ notice so that we can set aside time for their activities in the party agenda.

Can I bring a Piñata?2018-04-19T19:57:26-04:00

Yes. Please give InMovement proper notice (48 hours) and bring the proper equipment to hang the piñata.

Do you offer teen and/or adult parties and celebrations?2018-04-19T19:57:45-04:00

Yes, on a case-by-case basis. Please call us to see if your needs can be met.
