An onsite restaurant, Perky's Pizza, serves chicken tenders and hot dogs to keep kids fueled.
The party packages at Kidz Village are quite accommodating, as they include a mix of both open access to play areas and reserved time in a private party room.

Even once the private-room reservation is over, groups are welcome to stay and party for free until closing time or the staff's nap time.
