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. During the final 10-15 minutes of the party, the kids will make slime to take home! Adding on a rocket launch, cotton candy, other other add-ons 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 4 weeks in advance is recommended.

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 (405) 285-9643 and we’ll be happy to schedule your party over the phone. We require a $50 deposit to book your party and accept Visa and MasterCard. Your deposit is non-refundable.

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.

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 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 need a 4 ft. sq. table or larger. 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 hovercraft rides?

A: The Mad Scientist will need a medium to large flat area, such as a non-slanted driveway or parking lot that has access to electricity.  Indoor areas, such as a church or school gymnasium work best for the hovercraft.

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. 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 at least three business days before your party.

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: 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. Younger siblings generally watch, but do not actively participate in the party and generally do not make a take home project. We determine the number of attendees based on the number of children who make the take home project.

Q: When do I pay?

A: We require a $50 deposit to book your party.  The deposit is not refundable if cancelled 4 weeks before the party. If the party is cancelled prior to 4 weeks before the party, $25 is taken as service fee and the other $25 is refunded. At the end of your party, you will pay the Mad Scientist the remaining balance, plus for the amount of goody bags you purchase. 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!
