Here's what parents have to say about our parties!

My son's Kindergarten class had a Mad Science birthday party and the kids were mesmerized. A lot of fun and learning. The scientist did a great job keeping kids interest(ed) throughout and made for an enjoyable birthday at our house even with a small wobbly table we provided (sorry). Great job!


Falls Church, VA

Excellent experience! Party guests texted the next day to say what a great time the children had. Even the adults enjoyed the show! (The Mad Scientist) was so much fun, and delivered a truly educational event! Thanks so much for a great party!

When do I pay? What is your cancellation policy?

We require a $150 deposit to book your party. At the end of your party, you will pay the Mad Scientist for the remaining party balance and any gratuity. You can pay with cash, check, or Visa/MC. Cancel at least 14 days in advance for a full refund. Reschedule up to 48 hours in advance for full credit. Extenuating circumstances will be considered.


Do I need to provide anything?

We need a folding table or card table so the Mad Scientist can setup the equipment. We will also need access to water for set-up and clean-up and access to electricity. Please let us know if your party location does not have either of these, and we can generally work around it.


How far in advance do I need to book my party?

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.


Are there travel fees to my location?

Wake and Durham Counties and Chapel Hill/Carrboro have no travel charge. Johnston, Orange, Chatham, and Franklin counties are $10. Other locations within 75 miles are $1.50 per mile to site, measured from Raleigh or Durham town center (whichever is closer).


What do kids do at a Mad Science birthday party?

During the first 45 min, the Mad Scientist will engage children with amazing science demonstrations conducted with the help of your birthday child and guests. In the final 15 min of the party, the kids will make slime, putty, or bouncy balls to take home. Add on a grand finale for even more fun!


Where are Mad Science parties held?

Our Mad Scientist will come to wherever you locate the party. In addition to homes, we conduct parties at community centers, restaurants, parks, the child’s classroom and other locations. You can also choose to have your party at the Mad Science Lab - we are located at 1019 Passport Way in Cary, NC.


Is a gratuity for the instructor customary?

Yes, though tipping the instructor is up to your discretion and not included in party package pricing. A gratuity for good to excellent service usually ranges between 10%-20%. When rewarding the instructor, please keep the tip separate. For Square, note the $150 deposit is not considered in % tips.


What if my child has attended a Mad Science party before?

We have the programming to avoid repeating a party. When booking the party, tell us about what your child has experienced so that we can prevent repeating the experiments they saw as a party guest or during their previous birthday party.
