How much to tip a kids birthday party "host" ??

Giving my son his first birthday party in a few months so not familiar here. Laser tag / Arcade type place. We have a private birthday room for 45 minutes plus additional time for games. Price is $650 for the first 15 kids. Might go up to $700 or $750 total if we get a few more kids added.

If I have a dedicated host or somebody from the place organizing the party, how much do I tip them? And if there is more than one person helping out should I split the tip or should I expect the host to handle that internally?

TIA.

its been a while, and i might be cheap....

we did a similar laser tag thing last time around and there were a few maybe 3 teenage hosts. I think I gave each 20 for a total of $60.

Not sure if I did right, or wrong. the party was around $500

My kids are older now but we did $20-25 per host too (we had a few so it ended up being $100 in total)

Same as everyone else but I didn't want to answer as they are "considered" adults now so it has been many years.

My sister worked at a party place a few years ago. She said average would be around $25. If they go above and beyond more. She would be thrilled to get $100 sometimes.

My son had his party at a karate school. I tipped the Sensei's $40 each (there were 3 of them).

Depends on how many there are and how good of a job they did. We had a CPK party once and I tipped the waitress around $90 when our bill was around $300 because she worked really hard. The last few parties we did at a bounce house and I tipped between $20-$30 per helper, depending on how many there were. They were mostly just bodies and were hardly paying attention to the kids. I think one time i did $40 per bc they were really attentive and nice.
