  • DCS staff assisting with check-in and cleaning up the room after the party (No piñatas, we have nowhere to hang them and no confetti as decoration)
  • One hour in the birthday room
  • Group admission of $6.00 per person

Requires 1 adult for every 5 children as a chaperone in the Discovery Center.

Upgrade to a premium birthday party package by adding a science demonstration or scavenger hunt (or both!).
