While adults handle all of The Center@862's fundraising and fiscal management, the planning and promotion of events is up to a board of teens. The teens have thrown events including DJ parties, live-music nights, and video-game tournaments. Another such event: Zombie Asylum Haunted House, a yearly yelp-fest that partners the organization with Fright Room, a cadre of scare experts who transform Supply Field into a deserted madhouse that's maybe not so deserted after all. Thrills wait around every corner as patrons—and, if they're younger than 10, their parents—risk an encounter with a not-so-good doctor.
On off nights, the center accommodates teens from eighth graders through high schoolers as they play games of pool and pinball or snack on paninis and smoothies. Along with leisure activities, the center’s board schedules educational sessions such as practice SAT and ACT tests or babysitter training workshops, in which students learn bedtime-story alternatives to reading their algebra tests aloud.
From canopy tents to colorful bounce houses, Party Kings of NY keeps an expansive inventory of party supplies that contribute to making events more memorable. Staff members set up and take down all inflatables, tents, and snow-cone and popcorn machines so hosts can focus on other matters, and they sanitize all bounce houses with environmentally friendly cleaning agents before and after each use.
The friendly staffers at Fun2Bounce infuse fun into block parties and special events, giving new meaning to the term sock hop. Kids can hop to their heels' content atop an armada of inflatable play surfaces, which include bounce houses and water slides. Fun2Bounce offers renters their choice of three different bounce houses and four different wet and dry slides, from giant waves that resemble a surfing curl to of-scale castles modeled after King Arthur's original air-filled kingdom. Just as important as ensuring kiddies enjoy themselves is safeguarding them during play, which is why the rental company purchases lead-free products and scrubs them with green, organic, person-safe cleaners.
