Party children play and have fun on the play structure under supervision of the attending adults. Head Over Heels recommends at least 1 adult for every 5 children. Parents and helpers should familiarise themselves with our Fair Play Policy and the locations of Fire Exits, First Aid Stations and toilets.

Please note that older children in excess of 1.45m are not allowed to supervise younger children on the play frame or in the toddler area.



The food we serve in our parties is just as important to us as the amazing play experiences we provide. It’s our goal to produce scrumptious food whilst keeping a careful eye on the sodium, fat and sugar levels. SEE PARTY MENU


We offer a choice of hot meal options. We are also happy to try and meet any special dietary requirements of any member of your party if we are notified in advance. Please contact the centre in advance of your party or ask the parent to get in touch directly. 

Birthday Cake

If you choose to bring your own cake for the Birthday Celebration Ceremony, it will be taken away after the celebration ceremony to be cut up and wrapped in napkins for the children to take home at the end of the party.


We ask parents not to bring cakes containing fresh cream as they require refrigeration to be stored safely and we cannot guarantee we will be able to do this on the day. If supplied we will use the cake for the Birthday Celebration Ceremony only and return to the party parents to take home.

We offer a range of customised and themed birthday cakes which must be ordered in advance of the party date. Prices and options are available. SEE PARTY EXTRAS

Only food purchased from Head Over Heels can be consumed on the premises.

Party Extras

We offer a selection of party extras including customised birthday cakes*, cupcakes and adult sharing platters. *Minimum 10 working days required for Birthday Cake orders. SEE PARTY EXTRAS

Please give the completed registration sheet to the receptionist on arrival. They will use this to check your guests in when they arrive and then show them to your table. The receptionist will provide you with a bucket to hold shoes, a clear large plastic bag for presents and stickers for the party child and adult in charge.


Your Table

A table is reserved for the children for when the food is served and it will be set with knives and forks, napkins

and cups. On the table, you will have paper party cups and jugs of cordial for the children’s consumption only.

Free Style Play after arrival

Once the children have removed their shoes they will be able to play and have fun with their friends on the play frame.

Party Food

You can place the children’s food order with the café staff and decide on a time when you would like it to be

served. We generally recommend serving the party food half way through the party.


It is strongly recommended that the children wash their hands or use the antibacterial gel prior to eating.


Please show consideration when taking photographs as some parents/guardians do not want their children to be photographed. 


Children's Party Food

We will call the children to the table when the chef begins to prepare the food, approximately 5-10 minutes before the food is served. When the children are seated, happy birthday will be sung and the candles on the birthday cake (not included) will be lit and blown out by the birthday child. Following the cake celebration ceremony, the food will be served. Then they are welcome to return to the play frame to enjoy more free style play.

The End of The Party

The children are called over the microphone approximately 5-10 minutes before the end of the party to allow them time to return to their parents, put shoes on and say their goodbyes. As the children leave they will be checked off the list at reception and they will receive their party bag with birthday cake. Once your guests have gone, please ensure that you have gathered up all your belongings. If you have a tab to pay then this can be settled at the cafe.
