Terms and Conditions


The recessROOM, which Recess Cleveland operates, is a family entertainment center. Our “Freecess” Birthday party package is a lightly supervised birthday party with 3 hours of unstructured play, aka recess, where up to 50 guests are free to explore recess and all of our games and attractions as they like.

Recess Cleveland staff will be responsible for keeping all the equipment running properly, answering questions, and ensuring all guests sign a waiver. Within the three hours, the Event Host will be responsible for event setup/takedown, cleaning of the space, and restoring our equipment/toys to their original position for the next party.

Tables and Chairs

Your booking includes nine tables that seat 38 guests in the form of:
Eight 4ft Round Tables – Seats 4
One 5ft Rectangular Tables – Seats 6
Please request additional tables and chairs if needed.


You will need to provide your decorations.


You may also bring outside food. We have two large beverage coolers, three hot beverage air pots, and a small refrigerator space available if needed.


We have two professional indoor/outdoor speakers and a DJ Booth ready. You may hook up an aux cord and connect your playlist, use our FREE Loop music video service, bring your DJ, or hire a Recess Cleveland DJ (rates start at $100 / hr).

TVs / Mobile Display

We have three mobile TVs available for your programming. Most guests bring their own video game systems, use our gaming systems (mostly retro games), or submit photos to us to show during the event (perfect for birthday parties). If you would like us to show your photos, be sure to submit them no later than 48 hours before the event.


The Recess Cleveland staff will choose games and space setup based on the birthday person’s age. You may make suggestions, but we’ll make the final decisions. If we have any questions or concerns, we’ll contact you. You can reach us at 216-242-2282 or (preferred) whenever needed.


There is plenty of parking in our lot (corner of 49th and St Clair) or street parking.

Required Dress Code

None. But please wear comfortable shoes.

Legal Notes

We are only renting the space to parents/guardians, caregivers, and guests of the Event Host for their time. Although we carefully consider the safety of the children and the adults in the recessRoom, we are not responsible for any injury resulting from safe or unsafe play or any use of any equipment. This equipment is not limited to only those used in the play area but any area in the recessROOM, sitting or standing; the responsibility for any injury incurred lies solely on those procuring the space. By renting the space, the Event Host and their guests agree that Recess Cleveland should be held entirely free from any liability, including monetary responsibility for such injuries incurred, regardless of whether injuries are caused by negligence or not.
