Birthday Party Testimonials
“We just got back from my granddaughter's 8th birthday party at Waterworks. It was absolutely perfect. We had 15 kids, some parents, and our extended family there. The Carlsbad site doesn't have private rooms, so the tables and chairs are set up at poolside. At first I thought that might be a problem, but it was great. They are very flexible about when you eat, so the kids were in and out of the water, while the parents snacked and visited. It is the first kids' birthday party in a long time that I felt all of the parents enjoyed as much as the kids did. There are several places nearby to get food. We ordered pizza and salads from Palomar Pizza, who delivered to the pool, right on time. There was one other party going on in the other pool, and they got their food from Costco. They had pizza, a green salad, fruit plate, cheese and cracker plate, and pasta. It looked good too. We didn't bother with decorations, since the pool is already decorated in an ocean theme. No one missed them at all. Waterworks provided lots of help setting up, and also taking down, and loading up the car afterwards. Now, to the very best part of the evening. There were two life guards provided, who kept a vigilant watch on the kids, and also a swim instructor (Thanks, Caz!!!) in the water the whole time with them. He played, made sure all were included, assisted the weaker swimmers, and just kept the party going. The kids all had a blast swimming, playing games, and jumping, diving and floating on the many water toys. There were boats, dive rings, a dragon, a submarine, rafts, you name it. At the end of the party, they didn't want to leave. We got compliments all evening on what a great party it was. The parents appreciated the focus on safety and the kids having a good time, and many said it was the nicest kids' party that they'd attended. Another plus is that the pool is in a big shopping center with lots of restaurants. Some of the parents took a couples' evening out, and went out to dinner. They felt very comfortable leaving their kids. Thanks, again to Waterworks and their great employees. We'll do more parties here in the future.”
“I would definitely recommend Waterworks to all my friends and family who are looking for a great facility for parties (or swim lessons)! All of the staff were exceptionally professional and made us all feel comfortable. There was not a time during the event that I was not asked if I needed anything, had any questions or needed help. My husband, daughter, and I really appreciate all the hard work and I cannot say enough good things about the time we had there. You guys are awesome!!!!”
“On Sunday May 16th we celebrated my daughter Mia's 9th birthday party at Waterworks. This year I was looking to do something "different" for her and found your place on the Internet. Mia and I watched the birthday video and she was immediately "sold". I had spoken to Liz over the phone a couple times and right away was impressed with how organized the party planning went. Waterworks made it so easy from the beginning, with the party video, to providing options of near restaurants to choose from, even down to the directions from the surrounding areas.
When we arrived to set up for the party Liz was right there to greet us. She was eager to help, not only did she open the side gate to make our unloading convenient, she quickly met us at our car to help us unload our things. She even helped me put table cloths on the tables and filled the chip bowls, unbelievable! She explained how the party was going to flow and made sure if we needed anything to let her know. She checked in with us throughout the party and even reminded me I had salad's in the fridge.
Chris ran the games for the kids, he made them fun and kept them interesting. Even the parents seemed to enjoy them. We also noticed another lifeguard actually in the pool entertaining the youngest kids while they clung to him. (Unfortunately I didn't get his name, he has black spiky hair).
When it came time to clean up, my husband asked for some trash bags which they had refused, by reminding him they do the clean up too! Yup, they carried all our stuff out to our car and had the place cleaned up by the time we were pulling out of the driveway.
My husband and I have yet to put on a party that disappoints, but this one definitely out did the rest! Our expectations were exceeded while we sat poolside enjoying our daughter's party.
When it comes to party planning Waterworks, you guys sure know your stuff. Team work and communication is what we experienced on Sunday. Hats off to everyone involved in making our daughter's 9th birthday an unforgettable day. We're looking forward to another day at Waterworks Aquatics! ”
