Here at LilWarriors we believe there are too many rules in the world and people take things way too seriously.
At LilWarriors we’re using a whole lot of common sense and only necessary rules to guide our facility.
Applying a common sense approach at our facility assists parents, guardians and care givers to teach their children the impact their and their child’s actions, attitudes & behaviour has on others, how to respect & follow rules and be respectful of others. Wow! That sounds official. Here’s what it boils down to…
LilWarriors Common Sense Guide (aka Rules)
We’re an unsupervised indoor playground.
Parents, guardians, care givers are responsible for accompanying & supervising their child(ren). You’re responsible for your LilWarriors safe use of our facility at all times, including birthday parties!
We’re not responsible for injuries caused by unsafe or careless use of the equipment or facility. For example, that would mean kids should go down slides feet first and one at a time, not head first or like a bobsled team.
We’re parents too. We totally get there are days you’d love to ship them off to boarding school or send them home with someone else. The day you visit LilWarriors, isn’t that day though.
Heck we shouldn’t have to repeat any of this safety stuff here because we know you’ve read the waiver in full that you signed prior to visiting our facility.
So we’d love for you to join in the playground fun to Connect. Unleash & Be Well, but at minimum please look up from your electronics every few minutes. Even your chiropractor will thank us!
We DO NOT allow restaurant food in our facility. We DO allow water bottles, coffee/tea or 1 drink per person.
We’re a peanut/nut aware facility, not nut free. Small home packed snacks & home packed lunch items may be brought in. No restaurant food, including muffins, donuts, tim bits, pizza, burgers etc.
Of course baby formula and pureed baby food are allowed. We don’t want to see our littlest warriors go hungry!
Absolutely no cake, cupcakes, cake pops, muffins or anything that would suggest a party or birthday party unless you have a booked party.
Guests ignoring or abusing our food policy will be asked to leave without refund.
And if we weren't clear enough...Birthday parties are by advanced booking only! NO singing Happy Birthday, gift opening, gift exchange, birthday cake cutting unless you have a booked party room.
To ensure we provide the best service for our parties, we don’t allow any group big or small to have a birthday party or any type of celebration without making an advanced reservation.
You know how the song goes… every party has a pooper and that pooper is … well us! We admit, we’re the pooper when it comes to walk-in birthday parties, piñatas, silly string or confetti. Walk-in parties will have the option to upgrade to our plan-your-own-party package, though we won't be able to guarantee use of the party area. We appreciate that you save piñatas, silly string or confetti kind of messes for your house!
And no food, drinks, gum or candy in the play areas and no toys on the playground.
Seriously. Nothing to eat or drink in the play areas. And please don’t rest drinks on ledges ESPECIALLY to the toddler area. Our littlest LilWarriors cover themselves in enough bodily fluids that they don’t need to accidentally get covered in hot or cold liquids or any other food.
The play areas are for playing, the concession area seating & party rooms are for eating. Can’t make it any simpler than that.
Socks only. For everyone. Including adults.
Indoor playgrounds are socks only facilities, for everyone, yes this includes adults! This means once you pass through our magical entry gate socks are required at all times. We have brand new socks for sale at a nominal charge if you've forgotten yours. We don't rent socks and we don't reuse socks. That's just gross! Seriously folks you need socks to go bowling, you need socks to enter our facility whether you're playing on the playground or not!
Socks mean socks. Not shoes, not slippers, not bare feet, not trampoline socks, not grip socks. Stinky feet or holes in your socks? Don’t worry. We won’t judge, much.
Like your mother used to say, wear clean underwear, we’d love for you to wear clean socks! We have socks available to purchase if you forget yours, yours have so many holes you’re embarrassed to be seen or yours are so stinky they’re trying to walk away from you.
Visit us another day if your child is sick.
We know our facility is a super fun time. And we totally get it that your LilWarrior has been dying all week to come but if they’re sick, they’re sick. Our motto is Connect. Unleash & Be Well. We want all of our LilWarriors to feel awesome during and after they visit. That's really hard to do if you're physically sick.
While we love seeing your LilWarriors smiling face, we’d hate for other parents to judge you for your LilWarriors dangling nose drippings or glistening cough droplets floating through the air. So please save your visit for another day if your LilWarriors isn't well.
We’re not responsible for lost or stolen items.
LilWarriors exists to inspire kids, friends and family to Connect. Unleash. & Be Well. We’re not the police and we're not detectives. If you’re worried about something being lost or stolen lock the item in a locker (if you didn’t bring a lock with you, we have some available at a nominal charge) or leave it in your vehicle OR better yet… leave the item at home.
Right to refuse admittance & right to ask you, your child or your guests to leave.
Hey we’re all here for a good time. Ambassadors of Fun are promised a safe, respectful work environment and our guests are promised the same.
We reserve the right to refuse admittance. We reserve the right to ask you, your child or any of your guests to leave if any equipment is being used improperly; your child is sick, anyone's actions or behaviour is unsafe, disrespectful or just isn’t using plain old common sense.
As the saying goes it only takes one bad apple to ruin the bunch. And since we love apples, (especially if it’s in pie form!) we absolutely don’t want to ruin the bunch. So if a bad apple or two has to be removed we will. Really? Who purposely wants to ruin apple pie? Definitely not us.

For safety reasons, adults (18+) and teens (13+) must be accompanied by a child to visit LilWarriors.
We’re open 7 days a week for public play, party and event bookings! We only close on rare occasions, check out our Facebook page for details.
All guests (yes, that means you again adults!) must complete a wavier, which remains active for 1 year. LilWarriors under the age of 18 must have their parent or legal guardian sign their waiver, which can be easily be done ahead of time online. In fact if you sign your waiver ahead of time and you have an annual membership you’ll be able to virtually by pass the lines!
Facility, Safety, Inspections & Cleaning
Our Ambassadors of Play do an entire-facility check daily to ensure all equipment is clean and safe. For example, all of our electrical outlets are tamper resistant. If we happen to miss something please be sure to let any one of our Ambassadors know or stop by our front counter. We’ll get on any safety and cleanliness issue right away.
We keep our facility temperature set around 19 degrees even in the winter. Trust us 19 may feel a little cool if you're sitting around, it's NOT cool enough for those LilWarriors & parents running around having a blast!
Concession & Food
We’re not a full service restaurant or even a fast food joint but we still have lots of tasty food options including a variety of hot, cold & pre-packaged foods and snacks.
