ARRIVAL TIME  You and your guests should arrive at The Lab no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the arranged party time. We have other parties scheduled both before and after yours, and we want every group (including yours) to have their expected Kids' Lab access and our undivided attention. All party guests should gather in the parents lounge until the laboratory doors are opened for seating.  Mad Science is not responsible for supervising children either before or after the arranged party time.

PARTY TIME  Mad Science will be ready to begin your party entertainment at the arranged party time. If some guests are late and you request a delay, we may elect to delay the start of your party entertainment.  However, we will not delay by more than 10-15 minutes and the missed time will not be made up. For available party times click HERE.

***If you'd like to add additional time to your 2 hour party time slot, please let us know when booking your party. We will not be able to add time on the day of your party.***

PARTY LENGTH  You will have 2 hours exclusive use of The Mad Science Kids' Laboratory. If your party start time is 2:30pm, you and your guests can enjoy The Kids' Lab until 4:30pm. Our basic Birthday party entertainment is approximately 45-minutes in length. If you intend to bring cake or open presents, you should budget one hour to do so. If you are concerned about having too much free time, we have plenty of entertaining party add-on activities to consider.  The Science of Cotton Candy, Rocket Launches, Hovercraft Rides or our Bubbling Potions experience will each add approximately 15 to 20 minutes to your entertainment time.

Please be courteous of other party groups. We need time to clean and set-up The Kids' Lab for the next party. You may not exceed your party end time unless you arrange with Mad Science staff prior to your party. You may not add upgrades or extra time the day of your party.

If you have late guests, you may authorize a delay in your start time by 10-15 minutes, however, no additional time will be added at the end. All parties must end at their originally designated times.

PARTY FLOW  The entertainment portion of your party will begin at the designated party start time. The show length is approximately 45-minutes. Any Mad Science party upgrades will take place after the show, and will require approximately 15 to 20 minutes each. You can use the remainder of your time in The Kids’ Lab for cake, food/snacks or presents.

Your party entertainment, the eating of cake and/or party food and the opening of presents will all take place in one party room. Our staff will manage the party to ensure you and your guests have enough time to enjoy the full Mad Science Kids' Lab experience.

Mad Science has performed hundreds of parties using the above party flow. This flow works best for all involved. We want you to Relax! Let our professional staff treat you to a no hassle, no fuss (and no mess!) party - so you can more thoroughly enjoy this special event in your child’s life!

DECORATIONS  The Kids' Lab is professionally decorated in a cool science theme. Therefore, only balloons will be allowed in the Laboratory. We ask that nothing be hung or taped to the walls or ceiling. No confetti, glitter, silly string, fireworks or piñatas are allowed.

FOOD AND DRINKS  Mad Science performs hundreds of parties a year in The Kids' 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. Please observe the guidelines below to help us maintain a clean facility.

Food you may bring into The Kids' Lab:

  • Cake or cupcakes (we strongly recommend cupcakes for your convenience)
  • Pizza (Costco & Extreme Pizza are close by)
  • Sandwiches, Deli Plates, Fruit, peanut-free snacks 
  • Beverages**

If other food items are brought to the party they will not be allowed into The Kids' Lab.

** Mad Science will provide special Mad Science punch 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 Kids' Lab.

Remember, Mad Science will provide everything you need to conduct your party (plates, cups, napkins, utensils and non-carbonated drinks).

ADD ONS  Mad Science offers a variety of add-ons and upgrades. Please check out our menu of add-ons & upgrades for more information.

CLEANING FEE  Should unauthorized decorations be used 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 $75.00.

THE PARENTS  Are they invited?  Can they observe the party?  Absolutely!!!   Kids of all ages enjoy our unique brand of fun, hands-on science.  Our Laboratory will not accomodate more than 25 children, so if parents wish to stay we ask that the number of parents be limited. Our location is conveniently located across the freeway from the Arden Fair Mall and down the street from Costco and REI.  Parents are more than welcome to shop or catch up on errands and come back (on time please!) to retrieve their children.

For the adults that decide to stay, we ask that they limit their involvement to observation only and that they respect our desire for quiet during the entertainment.  We understand that this a festive time and conversation with friends is great.  We just don't want the "party conversation" to take away from the kids' party experience.  We hope you will understand.

KIDS AT THE PARTY  Any child who participates in the party activities, regardless of age, will be included when we calculate party pricing.  Please note, Mad Science is not responsible for any child before or after the stated party time.  Please ensure that parents arrive in a timely manner by the end of the party to pick up their children.

INCLEMENT WEATHER  If weather forecasts suggest conditions that could prevent us from performing an outdoor party upgrade, we will contact you as soon as possible so you can change your upgrade.

If you have a date in mind go ahead and fill out our online booking request form. We recommend you do this or call us as early as possible as our time slots do fill up.  We look forward to hearing from you and customizing your party!
