Can I bring in my own food?
Beginning October 1st, 2022 no outside food will be allowed in the party rooms. All food will need to be purchased through the concessionaire. You may still bring in cake, cupcakes, juice & water. To order food for your party you may contact Ice House Treats Catering Manager, Bart Evans at (812)430-1221. Click here to view the party menu options.
I would prefer a party that is not during the public session. Is that possible?
Yes! Private parties are possible, however availability is limited. Private party rental ranges from $170.00 to $220.00 per hour for ice, $25.00 to $40.00 per hour for the party room, and $3.00 per person for rental skates.
How long do we have our party room for?
Each party will have their party room for the entire time of the public session. Swonder does allow their parties to come in about 60 minutes before the party begins to set up the party room.
What kind of decorations can I bring?
You may bring any decorations you would like, with the exception of confetti and glitter.
Does Swonder provide invitations, plates, napkins, plasticware, linen, etc.?
Parties held at Swonder Ice Arena are responsible for sending out their own invitations, and bringing everything they need for their party
