• “Parties are our bread and butter,” Fun Ranch Mega Development, Inc. owner Vince Padilla readily admits. It all started when he realized that it costs a lot for parents to put together a birthday party for their children. “You have to rent a club house or a party venue, then you have to order food or have it catered, then you need tables, chairs, sound system, entertainment… and the list goes on. Can you imagine how much everything will cost in the end? We wanted to help parents get access to a one-stop-shop party venue,” Padilla explains.

    Never Run Out Of Food at Fun Ranch

    “One of the things parents underestimate in parties is the food,” Padilla says. He estimates that fifty percent of the time, parents don’t account for the yayas and other additional headcount who arrive at a party. This can be very uncomfortable for parents. In Fun Ranch, they are very sensitive to this situation. They make sure that headcount is transparent by issuing stickers to every single person who shows up at your party.  If they see that you’ve already overshot your headcount, you are alerted immediately. Extra food is always at hand. With a five to ten minute lead time, the extra food is ready and your guests will never even guess that you ran out of food. They are so prepared for last minute requests that they’ve accommodated parties that were arranged only the day before.
     
    Any Party Size

    The Fun Ranch branches in both Pasig and Alabang are fully equipped for any size of party from a guest list as small as 20 to one that is as big as 1,200 (Corporate Family Days and Kid-at-Heart debuts have actually been staged at Fun Ranch). The great thing about Fun Ranch is the consumable rates for their party venues: you’re not just renting an air conditioned room. The rent rate includes the food and free access to the play areas. Their parties can also cater to your budget. So, check what’s available with the kind of budget you’re thinking of. Walk-in customers also get value for their money because they can enjoy the food ala carte and experience free magic shows during weekends.
      
    Fun Play Areas, Exciting Themed Parties and Built-in Entertainment

    “We needed to come up with something fun for our repeat customers,” Padilla says when he tells us about his themed party rooms. These themed party rooms include a Rainbow room where kids can have role-playing games to an F1 room where guests can ride go carts. The Pasig City branch also has duck pin bowling lanes and a mini golf course. They can customize parties to suit your theme and they provide snack carts, hosts and magicians to go with your party. Lastly, Fun Ranch’s signature benefit is their multi-level play area where kids can run and have fun to their heart’s content. Access to these play areas for your child and his guests comes free with your party.

    They make sure that kids get the staple kiddie party food and adults are happy with grown-up fare. Padilla made sure that all the kiddie food recipes were tried and tested on his kids first. They also have a flexible food arrangement where buffets and plated meals can be arranged.
      
    Safe, Private and Clean

    Fun Ranch makes sure that you don’t have to ever worry about your kids. “It’s a big deal that parents entrust their kids to us,” Padilla says. He says that they have no less than forty CCTVs around their venues. The stickers are not just a way of counting guests but also of ensuring that no one crashes your party. For open areas, like in their Pasig branch, they also assign uniformed guards to patrol the area. They have a nurse on call in both their branches and the Pasig branch has a clinic. They make sure that there’s always someone watching the play areas, particularly those that have multi-levels, enforcing their height policies for play. They also regularly disinfect all the play areas to make sure that it’s safe for your kids.

    When it comes to birthday parties (or any kind of party), there’s nothing that Fun Ranch can’t do or hasn’t thought of. It’s a one-stop-birthday-party-shop for busy parents. It’s also a fun place to visit even when you’re not having a party and just want to treat your kids to some active indoor fun.
