FAQ

Frequently asked questions about the bath parties in Budapest.
What is the minimum and maximum age to take part in the bath party?

Minimum age: 18 +
Maximum age: none

The nocturnal VJ Szecska bath parties are absolutely cool, fun and unforgettable. There is no upper age limit, but there is a lower age limit set at 18 years of age (if the party guards are in doubt, you will be asked to show your ID / passport as proof of age).
Even though there is no age limit set, the general party crowd is about 20 – 40 years old, mostly 20-30 somethings enjoying themselves.

What is the music like at the bath party?

The spa party music is mostly triphop, funk, psychedelic music, so if like this sort of music and can enjoy the spa bath parties continuously re-painted with colorful laser beams, it is your chance to come and enjoy something unique. A must see in Budapest, Hungary.

Can I use the whole bath complex during the spa party?
No, only the outdoor pools are open, the indoor thermal pools, saunas, plunge pools, octagonal pools, massage therapies, etc. are closed. Indeed they close each day at 7pm in Szechenyi Baths and at 8 pm in Lukacs Baths. Your party ticket is only valid from after 10.30 pm, when the party begins, and is valid until 3 am, when the party ends. If you wish to buy a day time bath entry, you can do so in a separate purchase (day time bath entries bought online automatically include a fast track entry, unlike the party tickets)

The bath parties / sparties are in both the summer season and the winter season. Szechenyi bath parties are usually in the summer months (with a few notable exceptions, like the best bath party, the Cinetrip Winter Edition in Szechenyi Furdo), late at night after the official closing hours from 10:30pm to 3:00am.

The summer schedule of Szecska spa parties for the summer season in 2013 was as follows (all of the parties are on Saturday nights, fixed dates, you can purchase your entry here: buy online tickets for Szechenyi NYE Party here)

How much is the Entry to Szechenyi Bath Party?

As for the Szechenyi party entry prices in 2015, the party admission fee is €33 in Szechenyi Baths and €35 in Lukacs Baths. If tickets remain, the price in Forint is HUF 11 000 for the normal (the cheapest) entry. The cheapest category is usually sold out online.

The entrance fee is somewhat higher than the amount of the general bath ticket for a weekend bath, and the two tickets are sold separately. See our Szechenyi Spa Baths Price List here. Please note that the Cinetrip Bath Party tickets are more expensive, as it is a special VIP party in early August.

That said, once in a while (1 or 2x a year, there is a special VIP party with amazing shows, lots of extras. These bath parties cost about 3x more than the standard bath parties.)

What should I wear for the Szechenyi Bath Party?

Szecska Night Bath Party at Szecshenyi Spa
Szecska Night Bath Party at Szecshenyi Spa

Do I have to wear Szecska bath party clothes, a stylish fashion show piece with stiletto, a dancing queen dress, or should I just be bare naked?

No, all you have to bring along is a nice swim wear, whatever you would like to don: bikini is just as fine as a one piece, speedos, long trunks, surf style swim shorts – it doesn’t matter. Bring some established swim wear. A towel will be very useful too. And maybe a gown, if you tend to be on the cold side on breezy summer nights.

Mind you, the temperature of the outdoor pools is as follows: one of the thermal pools is around 33 degrees Celsius (91 degrees Fahrenheit), the other thermal pool is much hotter, 38 degrees Celsius (99 degrees Fahrenheit). In between the two thermal spas, you can plunge into the sports swimming pool, which has a standard cool temperature (27 degrees Celsius / 81 degrees Fahrenheit). Here is the internal map of Szechenyi Spa Baths to give you an idea.

We also recommend bringing your own flip flops or some waterproof slippers as all of the baths are covered in stone, which may harden the skin on your soles.

Don’t forget to bring your own towel. And you can also bring some inflatable toys or balls to make it even more fun!

Is there a safe storage at the Szechenyi Spa Baths?

Cabins Corridor Szechenyi Bath Sparty Budapest Spa
Cabins Corridor Szechenyi Bath Sparty Budapest Spa

“So if I wear a swim suit, where can I put my bag, my documents, my camera, my clothes?” Yes, there are lockers and cabins in the baths where you can safely store all your belongings. That said, we do not recommend bringing along your Rolex watch, or diamond ring and other extremely posh valuables to the party. You will be in water, you may even drink some glasses of alcohol during the party. It is better not to worry about precious items. And by the way, it is enough to carry around the photocopy of your passport, so there is no risk of losing it in the city.

The organizers of the Szecska Sparty do not take responsibility for lost or unguarded items. If something got lost call the Szecska Info Line, the official Szechenyi Bath Lost Item Phone number: + 36 1 363 32 10 extension 351.

Can I Buy Tickets for the Bath Parties?

Sure you can. As long as there are tickets left for the party, they are available. However, as tickets quickly sell out, we recommend booking a party ticket in advance, also the currency rate online is pretty good. (the Szecska parties have become so hip and world famous that we get intrigued tourists from all over the world). All party date links on this page lead to the payment link on paylogic, where you need to register.

How to register on paylogic?

Pick a party date and the number of tickets on paylogic. Then click on the Next button at the bottom. Then a new page downloads where you can register (or log in if you are a party regular).

Can I buy Bath Party Tickets in Advance?

Szechenyi Bath Party
Szechenyi Bath Party

Yes, you can very easily. If you want to be absolutely sure that you get in, you can buy your ticket in advance online. Also, online tickets are a guarantee that you will have your own locker (or private little cabin room in bonus tickets).

October, November December: see tickets above in the party date list
December 30 pre NYE Party: New Year Party Budapest Bath
Another way to buy tickets is to take a walk to Szechenyi Spa Baths, possibly days before the party begins, any day between 6 am and 9 pm, when the last cashier closes, and let the cashier know that you would like to buy a Szecska Spa Party ticket (‘sech-kah por-tee ye-jet kay-reck say-pen’ / I would like a Szecska party ticket please).
Budapest Bath Party Szechenyi Spa Drink Bar
Budapest Bath Party Szechenyi Spa Drink Bar

As you are buying your party entry in advance you will get a VOUCHER not a traditional bath ticket for day use. When you come to the sparty, your voucher will be validated by the Szecska spa party personnel. If you should be lucky, and can buy an entry after 10pm, you will get a normal ticket, which you can use to enter the party. What an administrative ticketing system…

Or, you can buy tickets in advance for the Szecska party in the city center on Szabadsag Square at a nice cafe in the middle of the green park of the square called Cafe Hutte.

Are there any VIP tickets for Szecska Bath Party?

No, there aren’t. The whole party is VIP, and the thermal water is VIP, full of healthy minerals. No need to get more VIP than that.

How much is a Spa Party Ticket for the Szecska Bath Party?

Payment can be made by bank transfer or personally in downtown Cafe Hütte on Szabadsag Square (close to the Hungarian Parliament building), or in the bath. There is no guarantee that tickets will be left.

Is there a Refund if I cannot go to the Szechenyi Bath Party?

No, unfortunately there isn’t. You can try to sell it to somebody else though. It will be easily bought.
Also, if you mix up the venue of the bath parties, we cannot provide a refund. Note: the organizers of the party reserve the right to change the venue of the party (typically Lukacs Baths or Szechenyi Baths).
Please do make sure that you choose the right date and venue for the party as there is no refund if the party date chosen by you was an error.

What if the Weather is Rainy or Stormy?

Szecska Sparty and Lukacs Bath Magic Sparty are open air bath parties under a thick cloud of steam in warm natural spring waters, in the outdoor pools in Szechenyi Baths / Lukacs Baths, with stars over your head, and very rarely with black clouds. The bath is open in rainy weather, or if the snow falls in winter time.
The bath party will be on in bad weather too, but occasionally there are huge summer storms. In extreme weather conditions, the spa bath party will be cancelled, and you can try to attend the following party instead OR ask for a refund.

Is there any Alcohol at the Szechenyi Bath Party?

Budapest Szechenyi Baths Party Cocktails and Beers
Budapest Szechenyi Baths Party Cocktails and Beers

Yes, there is. Beers, wines, cocktails, juices and more can be bought on location with your special waterproof party card: basically there is no cash payment, but you can buy party money with your cash or card for the Party Card. The Party Card has a string attached, so you can keep it safe with you in the water (around the neck, or arm).

 Please note, that you are not allowed to bring your own alcohol on the bath party premises.
Bottles in general are not allowed, as the bath is logically a splinter free zone, so the cocktails, beers, other drinks are served in plastic cups: we wish to keep you and your feet safe.

How can I pay for foods and drinks at the Spa Party?

Party Card Budapest Sparty Cinetrip Szechenyi Baths
Party Card Budapest Sparty Cinetrip Szechenyi Baths

In cash or by card: you can buy party money for the waterproof Party Card, which can be taken to the pools with you (there is a string to put it around your neck or arm).

The money left on your Party Card will must be claimed to be refunded to you at the end of the party: please keep the card refund time limit in mind when the party finishes.

Are the Szechenyi Spa Parties Wild?

Well, they are not tame, but we would not say that they are ‘wild parties’ either. Great parties, psychedelic music, laser visual effects, triphop, hiphop, funk music, etc.

Can I take photos at the Bath Parties?

Yes, with a special photo / video permit. Please note, that photos and videos are taken at the parties which can include you, too. By entering the Szecska spa party, you automatically accept that you might appear in the photos and video recordings.

Who organizes the Sparties?

Cinetrip Future Disco Budapest Szechenyi Baths
Cinetrip Future Disco Budapest Szechenyi Baths

The party organizer is Intersputnik Ltd. in collaboration with the state owned Szechenyi Gyogyfurdo es Uszoda (i.e. Szechenyi Spa Baths and Pool). The founding father of the bath parties is the ingenious Laszlo Laki.

 Code of Conduct

As part of the Terms and Conditions you accept when buying a party ticket, you will also accept to follow the Code of Conduct.
Please note that very drunk and violent spa bath party goers will be excluded from Szecska spa party without any further notice. Also, all male stag parties are not welcome at the party (be inventive and bring along a pretty hen party to appear as a mixed group, please)

Some of the visual effects at Szechenyi Spa Baths:

These superb effects can be seen at Water Circus Spa Parties / Cinetrip parties at Szechenyi Spa Baths. Szecska is slightly more modest, but you can get a feel of the atmosphere easily.

  1. I have a question… which is the difference between simple ticket (22€) and bonus ticket (80€) in the online ticket sale system? Thanks!

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hi Gabriel, the Bonus Sparty Ticket includes the following bath party package for 2 people:
      2 bath party tickets for the night (valid after 10 pm only, like all bath party tickets)
      2 private bath cabins for getting changed and storing items
      2-2 spa party cocktail vouchers (total: 4 Sparty Cocktails)
      2 Sparty tote bags as a memorable gift

  2. Are there any tickets at the door for this party?

  3. hello,

    is there a menu on what cocktails are offered here? Also how much does a locker rental go for and can you pre purchase it?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello, unfortunately we do not have a cocktail menu to present at the moment, but we are working on it.
      The locker rental is INcluded in the price of the Szechenyi Bath pool and spa party / sparty.
      The simple bath party tickets are €22 (ticket + locker), couple’s party tickets are packages, they are the so called bonus tickets including: 2 tickets, 1 private cabin, 2 cocktails €80.

      So basically you do NOT have to pay extra money for a locker. The locker is almost man sized (approx. 160 cm or so), so it is quite good for storing a backpack and some personal items, coats, shoes, clothes before diving into the bath party. Do not take or leave valuables with you to the party. In the pool area just take a plastic bag with a towel, please leave the rest in the locker where it is safe. Before leaving the locker, close it with your key, the key is the silicon wrist band with has a mock watch head. Push it against the locker button. Then make sure it is closed before leaving it.
      Have a fantastic party in Budapest!

      • Szechenyi Spa Baths

        We have updated the bath party Bonus package with 2 towels with Sparty logos. As many of you do not want to come to the party with a towel, we hope this addition is very convenient. Have fun!

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello SM, the cocktail menu changes, but they are the most classic cocktails, also some local specialties. The locker price is included in the online sparty ticket price. There is no need to bring a padlock, you will lock it with your electronic wrist band / bracelet you get on the spot

  4. Hiya!

    We’re coming to Budapest and are planning on going to the Spa Party on Saturday 7th September. We’re planning on buying the tickets directly from the Spa on the Friday – how much will it cost in Forint for a Sparty ticket? :)

    Thanks very much!

  5. Hello,
    we visited your party (Szecska 13) with my friends on Saturday August 31, 2013. We noticed there was professional photographer making pictures all night. We were wondering if are those pictures somewhere to be seen? Do you have any photos gallery on the internet? If so, please send me the link. Thanky you very much.

  6. Hey ! I have a ticket for sale on the September 21, 2013, Budapest Summer Szecska Sparty in Szechenyi Bath.

    If you wanna buy contact me on: vinczef@yahoo.com

  7. Ha eladom a jegyemet kell névváltoztatást csinálni?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Kedves Ferenc, igen, a jegyet at kell iratni a masik vendeg nevere, arra a nevre legyen kiallitva, aki a Szecska party-ra megy.

  8. I attended the lukacs bath party last night (October 12th 2013).
    Just wondering where I can find where the professional photos are uploaded??

  9. Hi there,

    I’m looking at coming to the new year sparty- just wondering as to the rough cost of drinks- eg. Beer, spirits?

    Many thanks,

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Maxine, the costs of the bath party drinks are like normal bar prices in Budapest, 2-3 Euros for non-alcoholic drinks, 5-8 Euros for spirits, etc.

  10. Hi there,

    I was just wondering if there will be a Bath Party on the 20th June? If so could I potentially book some tickets in advance?

    Thanks,

    Kristian

  11. Hi, i’d like to organize a bachelor party for my friend and we will be 8 person on the 28 june, and would like to come on szechenyi bath party on this date.
    But no way to buy online tickets! Is there a way to buy tickets or is it too late?
    Thanks

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Sy, the summer bath party tickets will be available from approx. April online. Please check back in mid April. Please also note that the party is a mixed party preferring mixed groups to all male bachelor groups, as previous experience was not too favorable with bachelor parties (drunk, irritating, loud and aggressive behavior was shown which is not tolerated at the party). Thank you for your kind co-operation.

  12. Hi I am going to be in Budapest in late May. The article says that parties in May are at the Lukacs Baths but the 2014 list near the top of the page says they will be held at Szechenyi Spa Baths, I just wanted to check if this was correct i.e. will the May 24th party be at Szechenyi Spa Baths?

    Cheers,
    Barney

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Barney, sorry about the contradictory information, we are continuously updating the page: the spa bath parties have moved to Szechenyi Baths from April 19 this year due to the incredible popularity of the party in Budapest thermal baths. To confirm: yes, the party on May 24 will be in Szechenyi Bath (not in Lukacs Baths).
      Have fun at the sparty in Budapest!

  13. I would like to come to the bath party on the 14th of June 2014. How do I get tickets for me and my lady friend and how much will the tickets for the 2 of us cost ?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Cris,
      the bath party tickets for June 14 in Szechenyi Bath can be purchased online here:
      https://frontoffice.paylogic.nl/?event_id=91677&point_of_sale_id=5679

      The cost of the party ticket depends on what kind of tickets you wish to buy. The regular tickets (€25 per person) are the cheapest, but you can also buy spa party packages including drinks, towels or even bathrobe (options range from €40 to €80 per person, but sold in couple packages only).
      The regular bath party ticket includes a locker, the couple packages include a small cabin for changing and storage in the baths.

  14. Where can photos from past parties be found?

  15. Hi,
    I was wondering where you can find the photographs that were taken by the photographer at the party?
    Thanks

  16. Hello,
    I was on the pool party on Saturday June 21 and I noticed there was a professional photographer making pictures all night.
    I was wondering if are those pictures somewhere to be seen? Do you have any photos gallery on the internet? If, so, please send me the link.
    Thank you very much.

  18. Hi just wondering can I take few photos of mine with my phone at sparty tonight?

  19. Are there any tickets left for the poolparty this saturday? Or can we buy 2 duotickets for 3 persons?

  20. Hello
    Me and my friends want to attend the bath party on the 30th August but we are confused on the booking page. You said to make sure not to book standard tickets as these are just for the day. But on the booking page they just say “normal bath ticket €25”. Is this for the bath party or for a standard day in the baths?

    Thanks,
    Gemma

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hi Gemma, sorry about the confusion. By standard tickets we mean the day time bath tickets, which are not accepted for the party entrance. The Szecska normal tickets are the cheapest party tickets. In fact all of the tickets on the paylogic booking page are for the party alone. Hope this helps.

  21. Hi are there any tickets left for tonight ? We can’t seem to get them online . Would it be possible to get them at the door ? Frances .

  22. wanting to book 12 people of the spa party 27th September can you please advise how I do this ?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hi Paul, in two batches: buy a group discount ticket (if they have not been sold out yet) for 10, and you get 1 free ticket, then buy a single normal pool party ticket as a solo purchase. Have fun in Budapest!

  23. When are dates confirmed and tickets for November released?
    Many thanks!

  24. Can you go on the day of the party and purchase tickets at the bath? IE tonight !? Or do they have to be purchased before hand online only?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Michael, if there are any tickets left you can buy them at the party entrance, but usually there are very few left and only in the more expensive category (e.g. the tickets with the extras like bathrobe, towel, drink coupons, etc.). In the winter / spring / fall season if the location is Lukacs Bath there are often no tickets left on the same day. If you want to make sure to get in, buy the ticket online and choose the date and type well as the online payment system is outsourced to paylogic, not run by Szechenyi Spa & Baths.

  25. hey iv come from Australia mate and i read somewhere there is “no age limit” and iv been told there is an age limit of 18 i am 17 what is the go there ?

  26. Hi,
    Yesterday we were at magic bath party at Lukacs Bath (03/01/2015)
    Where could we see the official photos?
    Thanks in advance
    Adriano

  27. Hi,

    I went to the spa party on Saturday 31 January and was wondering where I can see the photos that the professional photographer was taking online?

    Thanks!

  28. Hi, 15 of us are coming from the UK and looking to book the spartie for the 11th April – please can you contact me via email or reply on here the best ticket option for us. Will you offer discount? Please help :-)

    Many Thanks

  29. Hello,

    i am planning to attend the party in may. can you please suggest how to get in and out of the spa? i mean are Taxis easily available?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello, yes taxis to and from Szechenyi Baths are very easily available. What is more, the taxi prices were standardized last year by the Hungarian government so you would be charged the same by any companies.
      If you want to call a taxi, the party hostesses will be helpful with providing you with available and trustworthy taxi companies. Usually taxi drivers prepare with waterproof seat covers for party guests in case some people are still in their swimwear or are in wet clothing. Have a great pool party!

  30. Hello world,

    i want to go to the Cinetrip party and i don’t know what is the price? Does anybody know when will be the tickets avaliable? What is the difference betwen a standar party and Cinetrip?

    Thank you.

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Benito, we are sorry but the Cinetrip party ticket prices are just being in formulation. Please check back in a few weeks. Hopefully Cinetrip pool party tickets will be on sale from (mid)April.
      The standard party is fantastic but the Cinetrip parties (held twice a year, once in August and once just before New Year’s Eve) are spectacular with more visual effects, entertainers, higher end DJs, etc.

  31. Dear Sirs,
    I’m going to buy some ticket to partecipate to the Bath Parties in Szechenyi for the 2nd of May I would like to know further information about the organization.
    Could you kindly tell me how work this Bath Party?

  38. Hi Sparty-Team,

    we are a group of four girls and we visit Budapest for a hen-party-weekend between the 7th & 9th of August. For saturday we plan to visit your special CINETRIP MEGA POOL PARTY.
    I’ve taken already a look at the booking page and there are a few different options for buying a ticket. One of them is the “trio express” ticket. As we are four girls and there is no option for a single express ticket or a duo express ticket with the same conditions, i want to ask if there is any possibility to get the same conditions of the “trio express” ticket, but for four persons?

    Thank you in advance and we’re looking forward to hear from you!

    Best regards,
    Lyn

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hi Lyn,

      Single Xpress ticket €60
      Trio Xpress €250
      Xpress single premium €200

      Scroll down to find your requested date and click on “buy tickets here”.

  39. Hi we want to come to the spa party. Do we have to print the tickets if we buy them online? Or can we show ticket on mobile?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Cressida,
      yes, after making an online booking for the sparty, you will receive an email confirmation which will be your e-ticket. You can print it out and take it with you to the spa, or show it on your mobile.

  40. Hi, i am staying in the grandio hostel and was wondering is it from where you are based?

  41. Hello,

    I read somewhere that there is no age limit. I might go this summer with a bunch of friends there. They are all 18, but I am 17. Is there any problem to get in?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Ricardo,
      there is no age limit during the daytime in Szechenyi Baths. If you mean the bath party, unfortunately I am afraid that the min party age is 18 years old. Thank you for your understanding.

    • I forgot to tell that I was born in 1997, so I will turn 18 this year, if that can be relevant

  42. Hi!

    thx for response in advance

  43. Hi,

    we’re 4 Italian guys, we’d like to join the Cinetrip pool party on 8th August (single ticket 50€). Is one cocktail /beer included or not? If not, how much costs one cocktail?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Federico,
      thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately there are no drinks included in the bath party ticket price. I have just sent you an email, with the spa party drink list attached.

  44. My girlfriend and I are looking to join the party on July 11. If we purchase a package online, are we able to present an electronic voucher for entry? It will be difficult for us to print off somewhere as we just arrived in Budapest!!

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Brandyn, if you cannot print your tickets out, there is no problem at all. You can show your confirmation email on your mobile phones too. We hope you will have a great party on Saturday.

  45. Charles Andrews

    Hi,
    On the 4th of July we booked 8×3 person Sparty tickets for 24 people. On arrival we realised that the tickets had been booked for the wrong day. After speaking in great lengths with the owner unfortunately he couldn’t prove that we hadn’t used the tickets the week before and refused us entry.
    He said if we provided proof of payment (through paylogic) and our tickets he would check that they were not used and look at getting us a refund. However I dont have an email adress for him, would you please be able to provide me with an email adress so that I can contact who I need to regarding this matter.

    Kind regards

    Charles

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Charles,
      Unfortunately we cannot see any reasons or guarantee of a refund for the ticket prices of any unused tickets by the party organizers. Before purchasing your tickets online through Paylogic, you have accepted the Terms and Conditions, which clearly states “Please note that unused tickets are not refundable”. We will definitely investigate the incident, as all staff members are aware – as are party goers who accepted the Terms& Conditions before purchase – that unused party tickets are non-refundable. It must have been some kind of misunderstanding, as the policy of the bath party strictly says the contrary.
      We understand how frustrating it must be to realize that your party dates are in the past, but the fact is that the same number of people were rejected from the party on the day you were supposed to turn up as the seats at the party were kept for you.
      This is the general policy of event organizers with limited tickets, such as Budapest bath parties, or a concert in London.
      Thank you for contacting us. We hope to welcome you back at a great party.

  46. Hello,
    is possible to buy tickets for the evening of 18 July?
    Online is soul out.
    On site?
    Thanks

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Anto,
      You can buy ticket for the bath party at the cashier of Szechenyi Baths for HUF 11,000 (single tickets only). Please note that the tickets are limited at the cashier too.

  47. If all tickets are sold out, can tickets still be bought at the door?

  48. Hi, were i get the photos from 25 july party?
