Parties at the Mad Science Kids' Lab


Monroe Center, 720 Monroe Street, 3rd Floor, Unit E314B, Hoboken, NJ

If you enter the building from 8th Street at Monroe Street (near the Congress St/9th St Light Rail Station): Come up to the 3rd floor, turn left, and follow the hall across the glass breezeway into Building E; our Kids' Lab is the 3rd door on the right once you enter Building E. 

If you are parked in the lot behind the Monroe Center or enter from Monroe Street (near Shaka Bowl and Turquoise Cup): take the elevator to the 3rd floor and turn right; our Kids' Lab is the 3rd door on the left.

There really is such a thing as No Hassle! No Mess! and No Fuss! when you have your party at our Kids' Lab. All you need to provide is the birthday child, excited kids and the cake! The Mad Scientist and staff will be your host/hostess and take care of everything for you including serving the cake! 

We conduct birthday parties in The Kids' Lab on any day of the week and at any time; however Saturday and Sunday are the most popular days. Therefore our show times on the weekend are 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm. You have the room for 2 hours so after the entertainment you still have approximately another 45 minutes for cake, pizza, gifts, or whatever!

At the lab we provide a super scientific show, a Mad Scientist to assist your group, all the paper products for your event (plates, napkins, utensils, and cups), and beverages for the kids! Wow!

Your guests should arrive at The Lab no sooner than 5 minutes prior to the Mad Science Party Start Time. We may have other programs scheduled both before and after yours, and we want every group (including yours) to have our undivided attention. The Lab does not have a sufficient waiting area for multiple parties. Therefore, if you or your guests arrive too early, we will ask you to please wait in the hallway. Mad Science will not be responsible for supervising any child either before or after your party. 

Mad Science will be ready to begin your party at the time written on your confirmation. Should all your guests not be present, we may elect to delay the start of the show, but by no more than 10-15 minutes. If the party starts late, we will not be able to make up the missed time. 

You have 2 hours at the Kids' Lab (1 hour 45 minutes for 1:00 party). Therefore, if your party start time is 11:00 pm, you and your guests can enjoy The Kids' Lab until 1:00 pm. Our basic Birthday party is approximately 60 minutes in length. So you have plenty of time for one or more of our finales, pizza, cake, or gift opening. Please note: we need time to clean and then set-up the Kids' Lab for the next party. Therefore, you will be charged $30 for the first 15 minutes of overtime and $75 for the second 15 minutes of overtime in the Laboratory.

Are they invited? Can they observe the party? Absolutely!!! Kids of all ages enjoy our unique brand of fun, hands-on science. Should adults be present, we ask that they limit their involvement to observation only and that they respect our desire for silence during the entertainment. Please note: maximum capacity of the Lab is 35, including the children at the party.

Parents are also invited to take some time for themselves: right in the neighborhood we have Shaka Bowl, Turquoise Cup, Panello, Black Rail Coffee, and Tilted Kilt.

The Kids' Lab is decorated in a cool science theme. No additional decorations are needed. We ask that nothing be hung or taped to the walls or ceiling. No confetti, glitter, silly string or piñatas are allowed.

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. Therefore, we are quite strict on what food and drinks are served in The Kids' Lab. This is for your benefit as much as that of others. Food you may bring into The Kids' Lab: Cake or cup cakes, ice cream (we have a refrigerator/freezer for your use), pizza, beverages ** 
NO OTHER FOOD IS PERMITTED. If other food items are brought to the party, those items will not be allowed into The Kids' Lab unless you have prior approval from Mad Science.
NOTE: All food including cake/cupcakes MUST BE PEANUT FREE!!!
** Mad Science will provide lemonade and water for the children.  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.  

Should unauthorized decorations be used, unauthorized food be brought into The Kids' Lab 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 $100.
