Birthday Party FAQ

Q: Where do I go for a Mad Science birthday party?
A: We come to you! Most of our children birthday parties are held at personal residences or event centers. Our Mad Scientists will come to the location that you specify when booking. They will bring all of the necessary equipment for the party with the exception of water, electricity, and a table.
Q: What do kids do at a Mad Science birthday party?
A: During the first 40-45 minutes, the Mad Scientist will engage children with amazing science demonstrations that are conducted with the help of your birthday child and guests. Some examples of experiments that may be included are: fitting a hardboiled egg into an impossibly small space, seeing flash paper disappear and racing a levitating ring. During the final 10-15 minutes of the party, the kids will make slime to take home. Adding on a rocket launch or cotton candy or any of our other add-ons will add 10-15 minutes to the length of your party.
Q: How far in advance do I need to book my party?
A: Our party schedule fills up quickly. We suggest you book well in advance to get the date and time you want. Generally, at least 3 weeks in advance is recommended.
Q: What do I need to do to make a reservation?
A: You can fill out an online request form by clicking on the “Book now” button. We will call you back regarding your request. You can also call us at (972) 241-0475 and we’ll be happy to schedule your kid's birthday party over the phone. 
Q: What time can I have my party?
A: Parties can be scheduled any day of the week from 8:00AM until 6:00PM. All dates and times are subject to availability.
Q: Do I need to know the exact number of kids attending my party to book it?
A: 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 the party, you will be charged only for the number of kids that actually attend.
Q: Do you have any themed birthday parties?
A: All our birthday parties are science themed. If you have another party theme in mind, let us know and we can work with you to incorporate a science theme into your birthday party. 
Q: When will the Mad Scientist arrive?
A: The Mad Scientist will arrive around 30 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 at least 30 minutes before your Mad Science show is scheduled to start, to ensure the Mad Scientist is able to start on time.
Q: What kind of space is needed? 
A: The Mad Scientist will need a table to set up on. We ask that you have enough space for the Mad Scientist and for your guests to be comfortable as well. The kids can be seated on the floor or on chairs, several feet back from the table.
Q: How much space is needed for the rocket launch?
A: The Mad Scientist will need a medium to large sized back yard or open space to launch the rocket. If you are not sure whether you have sufficient space, you can always add the rocket launch and then the Mad Scientist will assess whether or not it is safe to launch the rocket on the day of the party. You will not be charged for the upgrade if the rocket cannot be launched safely.
Q: Will I have to provide the Mad Scientist with anything?
A: We will need access to water for set-up and clean-up and access to electricity for the indoor party as well as for a couple of the add-ons. We will also need a table to set up on. Please let us know if your party location cannot have any one of these.
Q: Once I have scheduled my party, can I make changes to it later?
A: Any changes to your party, such as number of childrenor location, must be scheduled at least seven business days before your party. 
Q: Is it okay to have other activities going on while the Mad Scientist is performing?
A: The Mad Scientist will begin at the scheduled start time and continue until our portion of the entertainment is finished. We typically will not be able to stop for any other activities (ex. food or cake). Please plan accordingly.
Q: What if it rains the day of my party?
A: If it rains on the day of an outdoors party, the Mad Scientist will call to see if there is an alternate indoor location to conduct the party. Indoor parties will not be affected by rain.
Q: Can I have the phone number of my Mad Scientist?
A: We do not provide the Mad Scientist’s personal contact information, however If you would like the Mad Scientist to call you on the day of your party, we can make a note for him/her to do so.
Q: For what ages are your birthday parties appropriate?
A: Our parties are appropriate for children between 5 to 12 years of age. Younger siblings generally watch, but do not actively participate in the party and should not make a take home project. We determine the number of attendees based on the number of children between the ages of 5 and 12.
Q: When do I pay for my kid's birthday party? 
A: We will authorize a credit card charge 2 business days before the party on the provided credit card, then finalize the charges the business day after the party takes place.
