Unforeseen Circumstances & Liability

We do everything in our power to ensure we arrive on time and deliver a memorable gaming experience for you and your guests. There are occasionally issues beyond our control that get in the way.

In circumstances such as serious illness, severe weather or any other circumstance which would subject GS or any of its employees or any of its participants to danger we reserve the right to cancel, alter or delay your booking. We will inform you of any such issue as soon as possible and offer alternative arrangements.

In the event of traffic or other circumstances beyond our control preventing us from being able to fulfil your booking our liability shall be limited to a refund of any monies paid in relation to the contracted event.  A pro rata reduction in the party hire fee will be paid in the event of a delayed start only if you fail to receive the full time you paid for. No further compensation will be paid irrespective of any loss of earnings. Depending on the situation we will also offer to exchange the booking to another date.

Day of the party

If the party starts later than the agreed time because GS were not ready (except for unforeseen circumstances – see above) then we will continue until you have had the time you paid for. If the party is delayed because you do not turn up on time or payment has not been received the party will still finish at the agreed time. If no-one turns up or payment has not been received within 30 minutes of the agreed start time then GS will leave and no refund will be given. Please make sure someone is available up to 30 minutes before party to allow us to set the van up.
