Here's what parents have to say about our parties!

We had MAD science come for our daughter’s 9th birthday. It was a huge success! Lauren led a group of 16 children through various experiments and interactive activities. She was calm, cool, collected despite their being 16 children! We would definitely use MAD science again, it was well worth the money.

We had an amazing experience for our son's 6th birthday this past weekend. In fact, probably the best party we have had so far! Eric was incredible...never have I seen an entire group of kids sit as quietly as they did during the entire show. Besides how wonderful (& entertaining) his show was, he showed up early to set up, was professional and did a great job at including each child, while making

Mad Science visited our son's school, and he asked if he could have a mad science party for his sixth birthday. We were so happy with the show. Ty was our mad scientist and he was great! He was totally engaging andknew exactly how to keep the kids well behaved. He was professional and a really likeable guy. A guest overheard the kids saying it was the best party they've ever been to.

When do I pay?

We require a $100 deposit to book your party. When booking, you will need to provide authorization so that we can charge the credit card we have on file upon the completion of the party.


Do I need to provide anything?

We need a table so the Mad Scientist can setup the equipment. We will also need access to water for set-up and clean-up and access to electricity. Please let us know if your party location does not have either of these.


How far in advance do I need to book my party?

Our party schedule fills up quickly. We suggest you book well in advance to get the date and time you want. Generally, at least 4 weeks in advance is recommended. We can take a last minute booking if we have an instructor available.


Do I need to know the exact number of children attending my party?

No. All we need is an estimate of the number of children you expect to attend. We ask that you plan for the largest number of children expected. On the day of your party, you will be charged only for the number of kids that actually attend.


Can we serve food during the show?

We strongly prefer that you do not. Keeping the attention of a group of children is our specialty, but all bets are off the moment a drink is spilled. It can ruin the flow of the show. Please plan to serve the food and beverages immediately after our show is finished.


When will the Mad Scientist arrive?

The Mad Scientist will arrive at least 15 minutes early to set up. He/she will be ready to start the show at the time you booked. It is best to start your party 15 minutes before your Mad Science show is scheduled to start to ensure the Mad Scientist is able to start on time.


Should I tip the Mad Science instructor?

Often customers inquire about a gratuity for the instructor. At your discretion, the typical service percentage (15% - 20%) is customary. Please pay your Mad Scientist directly and do not include this amount in the balance due.


How do I book my party?

Booking your party will eventually require a phone conversation. Fill out the webform above through the "Request a Party" link and our party manager, Stacy, will give you a call. You will need to indicate a preferred date and a preferred time slot - we do parties on weekends at 11:00 AM, 2:00 PM and 5:00 PM. Or give us a call at (845) 294-5434.
