FAQ

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 creating bubbling potions with dry ice. During the final 10-15 minutes of the party, the kids will make slime, silly putty or a superball to take home. Adding on a rocket launch or cotton candy 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 also call us at (913) 888-8877 and we’ll be happy to schedule your party over the phone. We require a $50 deposit to book your party and accept Visa, Discover and MasterCard. Your deposit is fully refundable up to 3 business days before your party.
Q: What time can I have my party?
A: On Saturdays and Sundays we have set party times of 10:30 am, 1:30 pm, 4:30 pm or later at our Lab. Parties can also be scheduled Monday-Friday at almost any time. All dates and times are subject to availability.  If the party is going to be held at your house, times are more flexible.
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. We will follow up approximately one week prior to your party to get a better idea on how RSVPs are going.  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 parties?
A: All our themes revolve around science. If you have another party theme, we can notify the Mad Scientist, and he/she will do his/her best to incorporate your theme into the experiments and language that is used.
Q: When will the Mad Scientist arrive?
A: 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 at least 15 minutes before your Mad Science show is scheduled to start, to ensure all guests have arrived before the presentation begins.
Q: What kind of space is needed?
A: The Mad Scientist will need a 4 ft. table for the experiments. 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 an electric outlet for the program and to water for set-up and clean-up. Please let us know if your party location cannot have either of these.
Q: Once I have scheduled my party, can I make changes to it later?
A: You can make changes to your party date and time up to 24 hours before the party.  If you cancel less than 3 days in advance your deposit is not refundable.
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 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 your scheduled Outdoor party, the Mad Scientist will call to see if there is an alternate indoor location to conduct the party.
Q: Can I have the phone number of my Mad Scientist?
A: We do not provide the Mad Scientist’s personal contact information. If you have questions or special requests you can contact the Mad Science office at 913-888-8877.
Q: For what ages are your parties appropriate?
A: Our parties are appropriate for children between 4 to 12 years of age. Younger siblings who watch, but do not actively participate in the party and do not make a take home project are not included in the count of children.
Q: When do I pay?
A: We require a $50 deposit to book your party. At the end of your party, you will pay the Mad Scientist the remaining balance. You can pay with check, VISA, Mastercard or Discover
Q: What is your policy on tipping?
A. If you think your Mad Scientist did a great job, a tip is very much appreciated. If you have any other questions, please call us at 913-888-8877
*Parties of 20 or more include a 2nd Mad Scientist. If you schedule your party for 20 or more, the minimum charge is for 20 children.
