Fees for the pizza party are $213 for the standard, plus additional fees for specialty items or add-ons.

Made in the Shade Cabana-Only Party

If you prefer to just rent the cabana for your party, with no “frills” (i.e., you provide the supplies), the Made in the Shade party rental provides you with the space of a cabana (shelter).

Note that no outside food is allowed at Splash Montana, so snacks or meals will need to be purchased at the Grill or Café.

Advanced reservations of cabanas only are $65 per session, or day of reservations at $55 on a first-come-first-served basis only.

What food is available at Splash Montana’s Café?

Note that the menu is subject to change.

What does the Fireline Grill offer guests?

Splash Montana is a great place to chill after a crazy week, get some swimming in (even laps), host a party, or just cool off in the summer.

Party packages are available, along with cabana rentals for your group, or just enjoy a lounger near the pool. The park itself contains three 3-story water slides, kid-friendly waterslides, a swimming and lap pool, a lazy river, spray features, and much more, appropriate for all ages to enjoy.

If you’re planning to bring a party, be sure to call ahead and book your cabana or package. No other reservations are required.
