I'm looking at booking at a party for my boys (7,10) at a trampoline park with food.
Torn between time slots.
Which do you think is better 12-2, 3-5 or 4-6?

4-6. Everyone's kids can be fed so won't need dinner when they get home.

But only if its a Saturday.

12-2 or 4-6 so that it covers a mealtime.

Yes it's a Saturday

I'd choose 4-6.
I think the looking forward to the party is just as exciting as the party itself so this way they have a great day and something to look forward to.
The bouncing around will burn off all that energy the excitement of the day has created.
I find mid-day parties can be a bit 'what next?' once they are over hence found that my dc's parties never ended if we had them pre late afternoon as dc didn't want the party to end so we'd have numerous friends coming back to the house for 'an hour'. This may not be relevant to you but was very much the thing among my dc and friends.

Not 12-2. You'd have to feed them first, then they'd jump around and puke.

4-6. Gives anyone with a morning sports club/drama school/etc time to go, and is a natural meal time.

3-5 always!

12-2 or 4-6 so it covers a normal meal time

3-5pm is the norm where I live.

230-430 or 3-5 is normal where I live. Then you don't need to feed them a meal, just bits to pick at so it's easier on the fussy eaters.

4-6 so it covers tea time and people can still do something with the rest of the day. 12-2 eats into the morning and afternoon.
