Would you accept this offer for your 1 year old?

DS' 1st birthday is in 5 weeks. We have about 80 people at least that we want to invite (DF and I both have VERY LARGE families). 

DF's mom called us tonight saying that some family members were open to renting out the outside portion of their town's waterpark as a gift for DS. 

We have very limited information about the waterpark but based off the information on the indoor portion, it costs $250 for 2 hours (1 hour of swim, 1 hour to use the lounge room for cake/presents), 100 guests max. 

Would you accept this offer for your 1 year old's birthday party? 

Note: We do have our original plans on the other hand, so either option we have he will be getting a bday party. Just generally curious on if you would accept such a huge offer or if you would actually do such a big party if the baby won't even remember it. 

Edit: Going to go take a nap before DS wakes up for the day. Lots of questions have been asked over and over, so if you happen to have the same one you can probably find the answer in the comments. Most likely will be awhile before I return to answer any other comments because I only get on when DS is napping or I have a free hand. Thanks though guys :D

Sounds great but 2hrs doesn't seem like enough time.

That's one of the problems. It's a lot of money for only 1 hour of swim time and the other for just sitting at a table with a piece of cake ._. lol.

Agreed, however this is only what we know based on the inside rental. We have no information until Monday about the outside rental, so the outside we may be able to rent for an extra hour or so.

I don't think 2 hours would be long enough without feeling rushed to get it done quick.

Indeed it would be, but it is a lot of money and DF's family isn't always reliable when it comes to money...and if someone pulls back on their word, we wouldn't be able to afford the bill pickup.
