Looking for a birthday party idea for your little baseball or softball fan?At Frozen Ropes, which is a recognized name in baseball and softball instruction, your child can have an action-packed party!
My son attended at friend’s 9 year old birthday party at the Frozen Ropes location in Garden City, NY (one of the two Long Island Locations. The other location is in Syosset). The first activity was Sliding into Home! What kid does not love sliding into home plate to win the game for his/her team? The kids had to run to 3rd base, turn the corner and slide into home base, which was on top of a nylon sheet on top of a mat to ensure a nice slide into home. The kids loved it and cheered for every participant! Next the birthday boy chose Home Run Derby to play. 2 teams were made and separated by a floor to ceiling net, 2 kids were pitched to at the same time; each kid got pitched to until 4 hits were made. Depending on the distance and the type of hit that was made, points were awarded. 4 winners were crowned. Next game was Running Bases, a game of speed and decision making on when to run to touch the opposite base. If tagged by the coach with the ball before touching the base, you are out. 2 winners were crowned. Winners got a t-shirt. All participants were given a water bottle as the favor.
After all that fun play, it was time to eat.
What is included: Water bottles for each child, pizza, paper goods and drinks. You can upgrade the food; add a fruit platter, vegetable platter or a cookie platter; salads or sandwiches for extra fees on the menu provided by Frozen Ropes. No outside food or beverages are allowed in the facility.
You need to bring: the birthday cake and candles, any extra cash for 155 gratuity, any additional favors you would like to bring.
A participant waiver must be signed by the guardian of all birthday party participants.
The facility was very clean and air-conditioned. The bath room facilities were very clean as well. The party area with tables was large. Benches lined the walls for ample seating. Several vending machines offing snacks and cold drinks lined the walls as well. A clean water fountain was available as well.
This party flowed! The large group of a mix of boys and girls remained on task and well behaved throughout this fast-paced and active party. The instructors were very kid-friendly, very knowledgeable and even encouraged the not-so baseball savvy kids during the activities.Frozen Ropes
