There really is such a thing as No Hassle! No Mess! and No Fuss! when you have your party at our Kid's Lab. All you need to provide is the birthday child, excited kids and the cake! The Mad Scientist and additional staff will be your host/hostess and take care of everything for you including serving the cake!
We conduct birthday parties in The Kid's Lab on any day of the week and at any time; however Saturday and Sunday are the most popular days. Therefore our show times on the weekend are 11am, 12pm, 2pm, 3pm, 5pm and 6pm. You have the room for 2 hours so after the entertainment you have approximately another 45 minutes to an hour for cake, pizza, gifts, or whatever!
At the lab we provide a super scientific venue, a super scientific show, a host/hostess to assist your group, all the paper products for your event (plates, napkins, utensils, and cups) and a super scientific Mad Scientist, a super scientific Lab Manager, all the paper goods for your event , and beverages for the kids! Whew!
ARRIVAL TIME. You and your guests should arrive at The Lab no sooner than 15 minutes prior to the Mad Science Show Start Time. We have other parties scheduled both before and after yours, and we want every group (including yours) to have our undivided attention. Further, the Laboratory does not have a sufficient waiting area. Therefore, if you or your guests arrive too early, we will ask you to please wait outside. Mad Science will not be responsible for supervising any child either before or after your party.
PARTY TIME. Mad Science will be ready to begin your party at the time written on your confirmation. Should all your guests not be present, we may elect to delay the start of the party, but by no more than 10-15 minutes. If the party starts late, we will not be able to make up the missed time.
PARTY LENGTH. You have 2 hours in The Kid's Lab. Therefore, if your party start time is 2pm, you and your guests can enjoy The Kid's Lab until 4pm. Our basic Birthday party is approximately 45 minutes in length. So you have plenty of time for one or more of our finales, cotton candy, pizza, or gift opening.
Please note: we need time to clean and then set-up The Kid's Lab for the next party. Therefore, you will be charged $30 for the first 15 minutes of overtime and $75 for the second 15 minutes of overtime in the Laboratory.
DECORATIONS. The Kid's Lab is professionally decorated in a cool science theme. Therefore, no additional decorations are allowed in The Kid's Lab. We ask that nothing be hung or taped to the walls or ceiling. No confetti, glitter, silly string or piñatas are allowed. Items with special significance such as an annual birthday candle are allowed and encouraged.
FOOD AND DRINKS. Mad Science performs hundreds of parties a year in The Kid's Lab. We strive to provide each party the same fabulous experience and give each our undivided attention. Cleanliness of the venue is an important aspect of a positive party experience. Therefore, we are quite strict on what food and drinks are served in The Kid's Lab. This is for your benefit as much as that of others.
Food you may bring into The Kid's Lab:
If other food items are brought to the party, those items will not be allowed into The Kid's Lab, unless you have plan approval from Mad Science..
** Mad Science will provide fruit juices and water for all your guests. These have proven to be more than adequate for our customers' needs. However, should you wish to have carbonated (or other) drinks we ask that you please provide your own cooler and ice. No alcohol is allowed in the Kid's Lab.
CLEANING FEE. Should unauthorized decorations be used, unauthorized food be brought into The Kid's Lab or should actions by you or your guests result in a greater effort by our staff to clean and reset The Kids' Lab for the next group, you will be charged a cleaning fee of $100.
PIZZA. If you would like to serve pizza, we would be more than happy to order and have it delivered for you. We do offer pizza from our specially chosen yummy vendor and we have the timing "down to a science" so that you and your guests will enjoy fresh hot pizza. Single topping $12, one or more toppings $14.
THE PARENTS. Are they invited? Can they observe the party? Absolutely!!! Kids of all ages enjoy our unique brand of fun, hands-on science. Should adults be present, we ask that they limit their involvement to observation only and that they respect our desire for silence during the entertainment. Our lobby does offer a big window for viewing into the party room. Please ensure parents arrive in a timely manner by the end of the party to pick their children up.
INCLEMENT WEATHER. Our staff will contact you if conditions are such that we cannot support your party (i.e. flooding). Due to the location of The Kids' Lab parties typically go off as planned. Should your party be cancelled, we will make every effort not only to contact you in a timely manner but to also make every effort to reschedule as quickly as possible. Should you not be able to get to our location, we ask that you contact us as soon as you are able..
In case of a party emergency, please call 713-320-3549; you will be calling a staff member who is on call for the weekend and who will be able to assist you.
