REOPENING MANCHESTER, NH IN AUGUST.
First of all — WE MISS YOU ALL! We hope everyone is staying healthy. Cowabunga’s Manchester is making plans to reopen sometime in August! In order to follow the guidelines, there will be a bunch of changes! Some may be harder than others, but we feel that together, we can bring some joy to your families!
WE KNOW THIS IS HARD! As parents, community members & small business owners, we are struggling with this pandemic. Please send us all the positive vibes you can spare.
😷 MASKS will be required in some capacity but not for children when they are playing. We will need to follow state guidelines. We know this is a very heated topic.
🧼 CLEANING & SANITIZING will be ongoing and constant. Some items, like Legos will be requested and sanitized after each use. Equipment will be done in a rotation with a hospital grade solution. We may need to temporarily close a section for 10 minutes to wipe and let it dry.
🥳 PRIVATE PARTIES will resume but will be limited to probably 10 kids & 10 adults to allow for opportunity to physically distance. We will change up our layout in the “cake room” to allow for smaller, round tables for families to sit together. We will limit activities to food only & presents will be taken home to open.
🎁 PUBLIC PARTIES will be limited to a 2 hours of playing & will need to commit to a child count so we can adjust our new online open gym booking system.
🤸♀️OPEN GYM will be mainly by reservation only and change to some sort of hourly pass. We will GREATLY limit attendance and ask for only one free adult per paying child. Tables will be spaced apart and each family will have a table to sit at. Parents will be asked to stay close to children to help give them reminders to physically distance.
🏕️ CAMPS can get the place to themselves for one or two hours. This is available for 30 kids or more! Our new booking system will be able do this online — or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your August slot now.
🤾 WEEKDAY PRIVATE GYM RENTALS will be available and can accommodate up to 30 kids in our open gym. Price will be around $450. OR you can coordinate with us to do weekday private gym rentals.
