FAQs

What areas do you cover?

The base area is Birmingham and surrounding areas within the west midlands within a 15 mile radius. Other areas will be considered out of the 15 mile radius, however there will be a fuel surcharge of £1.50 per mile applied for all post codes that fall out of our base area. Please call 07585 509165 to discuss any queries regarding the surcharge and we’ll be happy to help.

Do you just do children’s parties?

No… PowerPlay Party Bus is also ideal to keep children entertained at weddings (ideal for when the speeches are on.. we can provide additional childcare facility by prior arrangement while speeches are taking place), christenings, festivals, corporate events, fun days, store promotions, school events, we cover it all…. Contact us for more details.

How long is the standard party booking time?

The standard booking is a minimum of 1½ hours (1hr 30mins).However we do advise two hours if you wish to have party food on board the playbus during the party. Some customers choose to book one and half hours and then have party food afterwards in their home or venue. If you wish to add on extra time, each extra 30 minutes is charged at £40.

How many children can attend a party?

PowerPlay parties are for  a total of 20 children. This helps create happy and fun group play. It also means they can fit in the tabled seating area!

Can you bring your own party food?

You are welcome to have your own party food on board PowerPlay Party Bus. We do ask that it is just cold finger buffet food and drinks are in a carton, bottle or lidded cup drink with straw (avoids spillage in party food excitement!) Party food works well mid party as it gives the children a break and cool down, party food is only served and eaten in the tabled seating area provided on the top deck.

What is the age range of children that can attend?

The maximum age of children we advise on PowerPlay Party Bus is 12 years old (we don’t exclude siblings or family members though so please do ask!) The minimum age requirement is 3 years. However we do sometimes have children under 3 years on the playbus by arrangement and discussion, this is due to safety. They may require a helper to get around on the bus safely. Please discuss individual details when booking if there may be a child of this age, children are individual and we want them all to manage and be happy. Young children must also be confidently toilet trained or else be in pull-ups/nappy for the party.

How much does it cost?

The cost of PowerPlay Party Bus varies depending on your personal requirements. Please see party details section on website for a guide or contact us with your requirements.
