Here's some answers to a few frequently asked questions about our Birthday Parties

Q: Where do you do Mad Science Parties?
We do Mad Science Parties anywhere in South Wales, There is no travel charge if your kids science party is in Swansea, Cardiff or Bristol. if you are outside these areas there is a 30p a mile travel charge.

Q: What do kids do at a Mad Science birthday party?
A: During the first hour, the Mad Scientist will engage children with an amazing science show, which is fully interactive, using the Birthday child and their guests as Mad Science Volunteers. Some examples of experiments that may be included are: seeing flash paper disappear, creating bubbling potions with dry ice, the vortex generator, and much more. During the final 10-15 minutes of the party, the kids will make slime, silly putty or a super bouncy ball which they can take home! Adding on a rocket launch, hovercraft rides or other party add-ons will add 30 minutes to the length of your party but never fail to amaze!
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. However, please feel free to enquire at any time.
Q: How do I book my party?
A: You can book your party through calling one of our friendly office staff on 01792 348205 to arrange your party.
Or alternatively reach us via email on and we will be happy to guide you through the booking process and give you any additional information you require.
Q: What time can I have my party?
A: Most our Parties are hosted on the weekend, a Saturday or Sunday, at a time of your preference, at the venue of your choice.
Parties can also be scheduled Monday-Friday on occassion. All dates and times are subject to availability so be sure to leave plenty of time before the event to contact us for further information.
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: 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: We ask that you have enough space for the Mad Scientist and for your guests to be comfortable as well. We can usually accommodate the party in your own home to minimise cost, or at a venue of your choice if more space is needed for guests. The kids can be seated on the floor or on chairs, several feet back from the presentation.
Q: How much space is needed for the rocket launch or hovercraft rides?
A: The Mad Scientist will need a medium to large sized garden 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. For the hovercraft rides we ask for a large open space which is non carpeted. If you are unsure, please contact us to discuss options further.
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 point for the show.
Q: Once I have scheduled my party, can I make changes to it later?
A: Yes. 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 (e.g. food or cake). Please plan accordingly.
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 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: 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 cash, or cheque, cheques made payable to Mad Science South Wales
