Adventure Birthdays

Host your child’s birthday party at RIVERSPORT Adventure Park in the Boathouse District or at Lake Overholser! You’ll have a full day of fun and excitement that will have all of your guests talking. To learn more about party packages, contact us!

What kinds of parties are available?

Adventure Party Packages are available in the Boathouse District and at Lake Overholser. In the Boathouse District, you have the option of adding an Extreme Upgrade for zip lining, or choosing a RIVERSPORT Rapids Party Package.

How do I schedule a party?

Please let us know the date and size of your party using our online party form and a member of our staff will be in touch with you shortly.

What paperwork needs to be completed?

All participants will need to fill out the 2016 waiver. If participants are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian will need to complete the waivers.

Does everyone who attends the birthday party have to fill out a waiver?

Everyone who intends to participate in any activities must have a completed waiver. If the birthday party guest is a minor (under 18 years of age) the waiver must be completed by a parent or guardian. Guests attending the party but not participating in the adventures do not need to fill out a waiver.

How can parent/guardians fill out the waiver for their minor child(ren)?

Parents may either complete the waiver in advance online or at the birthday party check-in. We encourage doing it in advance so you’re not using party time to complete the waivers.

Do parents have to pay if they want to go on the attractions with their children?

All guests must pay if they wish to use the adventures with or without their children.

When will I get my wristbands?

Wristbands will be placed on each guest as they arrive and check in. Waivers must be signed before wristbands can be given out.

What are zip time passes?

Zip time passes are provided to those who are planning to do the SandRidge Sky Zip, available with an Extreme Upgrade to the Adventure Party Package in the Boathouse District. Please note: parties requesting 10 or more passes may be split between two different zip times.

When is final payment due for the birthday party?

Payment must be made at the close of the one-hour birthday tent reservation time. We will adjust the final invoice for any last minute increase/decrease in the number of guests.

What if I would like more time in the birthday tent?

Extra party time can be scheduled for a fee; the extra time must be set up during the initial planning stage. Additional time cannot be added on the day of the party.

Am I allowed to bring in food and a birthday cake for the birthday party?

You are allowed to bring in a birthday dessert and bottled water for the party. If you’d like additional food options, ask about our birthday party packages. No other outside food or beverage is allowed.

What is provided?

Tables and chairs are provided during your one hour in the event space. RIVERSPORT Adventures does not provide decorations, plates, cups, napkins, or cutlery. 

What should we wear?

Wear something comfortable! RIVERSPORT Adventures is lots of fun and provides many opportunities to be active. We do require guests who want to use the SandRidge Sky Trail, SandRidge Sky Zip, or go whitewater rafting at RIVERSPORT Rapids to wear athletic shoes or secure sandles. Flip-flops, slides and high heels are not permitted.

How long are the kayaks and stand up paddle boards available?

The latest time to take kayaks and stand up paddle boards out is typically one hour before closing (i.e. flatwater kayaks and stand up paddle boards). On occasion, weather conditions may require us to temporarily suspend or close on-the-water activities.

What happens if it rains or there is inclement weather during my scheduled party time?

In the event weather conditions make it unsafe to hold an on-the-water or outdoor experience at the originally scheduled time, your group may choose to reschedule your experience for another day. Refunds are not offered for weather-related closures.

Weather conditions that make it necessary to reschedule an on-the-water or outdoor experience include:

  • Air temperature below 40 degrees or higher than 105
  • Heavy rain (experiences can be held in light rain/mist)
  • Lightning
