Private Birthday PARTY: What to expect

Here’s what you can expect when you celebrate with our Private Birthday Party:

Arrival Process

  • Adult chaperone may arrive 5 minutes prior to event start time to bring in food, beverages, etc. Your items will be stored in our pantry until it’s time to set up in the cafe.
  • We recommend that you advise guests to arrive 5 minutes prior to event start time.
  • Upon arrival,  you will be greeted by your SPYSCAPE host, who will assist with check-in and distribute wristbands to your party.
  • Your party will wait inside our fabulous bookstore in the Main Lobby until your entire group has arrived.

Party Time

  • Once your entire party arrives, you will ride the SPYSCAPE briefing lift up to the SPY HQ galleries.
  • Your party host will guide you through the galleries, pointing out artifacts, sharing stories and helping to navigate the interactive challenges.
  • Your party will journey through the galleries for approximately 90 minutes (+/- 15 minutes)
  • When you arrive at the Special Ops Challenge, your laser tunnel will be reserved and ready for your party – you may go through the tunnel as many times as you wish, and will not have to wait in line to do so.
  • After your party has stopped in the Debrief Hall and learned which Spy Role each guest has been assigned, you will be brought to your party area for your hour-long celebration (with food, beverage and/or anything else you may be bringing for the party).
  • Paper plates, cups, napkins and utensils will be provided by SPYSCAPE.


Does the Birthday Party Package include cake, food or beverage?

No. Food and beverages are not included but you are welcome to bring or order your own.  We can provide paper plates, cups, napkins and utensils if needed. Our address for delivery is 928 8th Ave. New York, NY 10019. Pizza is always popular, and there are several pizzerias nearby:

Angelo's Pizza Broadway between W. 54th St. and W. 55th St., next to the Ed Sullivan theater

Little Italy Pizza 8th Ave between W. 55th St. and W. 56th St.

Pizza Hut 8th Ave between W. 55th St. and W. 56th St.

Can I bring Alcoholic beverages?

No, alcohol is not permitted.

Is there space for a gathering (e.g. to have some cake) if I purchase the Basic Birthday Experience?

No, the Basic Birthday Experience does not include event space, and there is no option to add event space. If you are interested in having cake or gathering for presents, etc. while at SPYSCAPE, we recommend purchasing the Birthday Party Package.

Can I add anything else to the Basic Birthday Experience?

Yes, you can reserve your own laser tunnel at the Special Ops Challenge for $100! Your group will have their own tunnel to do the laser tunnel challenge without having to wait in line.

What is the difference between the Package and the Experience?

The difference between the Birthday Party Package and the Basic Birthday Experience is that the Birthday Party package lasts 2 ½ hours and includes one hour of event space for food and beverage, as well as a SPYSCAPE host to guide you through the SPY HQ Interactive Experience & Museum. The Basic Birthday Experience affords your group SPY HQ tickets, a special gift for the Birthday VIP, and party favors for all guests.

What is the length of the parties?

The Birthday Party Package lasts for 2 ½ hours on average. The Basic Birthday Experience takes an average of 90 - 120 minutes to complete.

What are the party favors and gifts for the Birthday VIP?

The Birthday VIP will receive a SPYSCAPE-branded t-shirt & hat, a puzzle, spy glasses and a spy role wrist band. Birthday guests (children) will receive spy glasses and spy role wristbands. Party favors are subject to change and are based on availability.

What decorations will be provided? Can we bring decorations?

We will create a digital sign celebrating the Birthday VIP on our HD LCD screen. You are welcome to bring additional decorations. We are happy to store decorations for you in advance, and your adult chaperone is welcome to set up your party area before-hand, so long as no other group is utilizing the event space.

Do we need to bring our own table cloths?

No, table cloths are not necessary. However, for decorative purposes, you are welcome to bring table cloths if you wish.

How many tables are in the party space?

We have 6 tables that can accommodate a total of 25 guests comfortably. Table dimensions are 47 ¼” x 31 ½” .

What if I have more than 25 guests? Can you accommodate larger parties?

Yes, we can accommodate parties larger than 25 people. To inquire about availability for a party larger than 25 guests, Submit an Inquiry Below.

Does our adult chaperone require a ticket if they are not going to participate in the Interactive SPY HQ Experience?

If your adult chaperone will not be participating in the SPY HQ Experience, a ticket will not be required. However, if they do decide to participate, they will be required to purchase a ticket onsite.

What age is suitable for Birthday parties at SPYSCAPE?

The SPY HQ Experience is recommended for kids 8 years and older. Younger children can enjoy the experience as well, but they might prefer to skip some of the games and / or challenges more suitable for older guests. SPYSCAPE Birthday parties are ideal for kids 8 to 12 years old.

Do you have Adult Birthday party packages?

At this time, we do not. We do have stunning private event spaces available for rent, however. To inquire, reach out to our events department here with your desired date, headcount and event goals.


SPYSCAPE is New York City’s #1-rated experience, and the most innovative and distinctive event venue in Manhattan. Visitors’ skills and personality attributes are tested via interactive experiences, as they journey through our experiential museum showcasing secret intelligence, cybersecurity and investigative law enforcement exhibits. Each visitor receives a richly-detailed profile designed by a former MI6 Head of Training. Coming soon will be our newest interactive experience, SPYGAMES, which will offer fun immersive challenges developed with experts from CIA and Special Ops to stretch visitors’ physical and mental agility.

Do guests need to have an email address to participate?

No, but it is highly recommended that guests have an email address. This is so that they can build out their SPYSCAPE profile as they journey through the experience, and so we can send them their profile afterward (as well as their Special Ops Challenge video of them inside the laser tunnel)! Each guest will receive their Spy role before they leave SPYSCAPE, whether they provide an email address or not. We understand that parents may not always wish to provide children’s email addresses. If party guests do not provide an email address, their profiles can be sent to the original purchaser’s email address.

Do I have to provide the names and email addresses of my guests before we arrive?

No, you do not. We actually recommend leaving names and email addresses blank so that your guests can enter their own information when they arrive. We do recommend letting your guests know before arrival that we will ask them to enter their information, so that they are prepared.

Is there a place to leave our personal belongings?

Yes, we will have a bin set aside in which your group may leave their personal belongings, and we will bring the bin back out after your party is over. We also have complimentary lockers available.

Do you have parking?
