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 to take home. Adding on an upgrade 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, although we do work with last minute bookings.  
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 respond to your request one business day. You can also call us at (502)749-4217 or email us at madsciky@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to schedule your party.  
Q: What time can I have my party?
A: On Saturdays and Sundays we have set party times of 11:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. or later. 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. On the day of the party, you will be charged only for the number of kids that actually attend with the exception of parties with 33 or more children, where you will be charged the original amount.
Q: Do you have any themed parties?
A: All our themes revolve around science, but since science is found all around us, most themes and ideas can be worked into a science party!  
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 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 bring a 4 ft. sq. table. 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: 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 cotton candy upgrade. 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: Any changes to your party must be scheduled by the Friday before your party date, or there will be a $10 charge.  
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 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 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 parties appropriate?
A: Our parties are appropriate for children between 5 to 12 years of age, unless a preschool party has been booked. 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?
A: Your Mad Scientist will collect the payment at the end of your party. You can pay with cash, check, or provide authorization to charge the credit card we have on file.
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 (502)749-4217
