Q: What time will the Mad Scientist arrive? A: The Mad Scientist will arrive a minimum of 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
Q: What time should I ask the guests to arrive?
A: We recommend you have the children arrive 15-30 minutes before the Mad Scientist is scheduled to perform.
Q: What do we need to provide?
A: Please have a table ready (approximately 3 x 4 ft) for the Mad Scientist to perform from. We will also need access to water and electricity.
Q: Which room in the house is the best space for the party?
A: Any room that has space for the Mad Scientist’s table and an open area for the children to sit in will work best. Parties for children eight years old and up should be held in a room that can be darkened. Parties must be indoors.
Q: What sort of mess are we looking at?
A: Parties are mess free. If you would like to place a tarp or sheet down on the floor for the children or the Mad Scientist, please do so before the party begins.
Q: Do we need to help clean up?
A: No, the Mad Scientist will even bring a garbage bag and take any garbage with them. It generally takes about 5-10 minutes.
Q: When do we pay?
A: Please have payment ready after the party is over. Please note that the Mad Scientist cannot offer change. If paying by cash, please have the exact amount ready.
Q: What's your policy on tipping?
A: Please be aware that a gratuity is NOT expected. If, however, you feel the Mad Scientist has gone ABOVE AND BEYOND your expectations please feel free to tip them separately from your party payment.
Q: How far in advance do I need to book my party? A: The sooner the better, especially if you have a specific time request. Generally, at least 3 weeks in advance is recommended however, we have been known to meet last minute requests with some Mad Science magic!
Q: What do I need to do to book my party? A: Booking your party is simple. You can call, email or fill in a party request form online. We will respond to your request within one business day. No deposit is required at the time of booking.
Q: What time can I have my party? A: Our parties are scheduled for 11:30am, 2:00pm, 4:30pm and 7:30 pm on both Saturdays and Sundays. Parties can also be scheduled Monday-Friday at any time. 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.
Q: Once I have scheduled my party, can I make changes to it later? A: Any changes to your party must be made by 9:00 am on the Wednesday before your party.
Q: For what ages are your 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.
