Citiblocs Block Party!

Interlocking blocks.

Build bridges, build castles, build towers to the sky! Appropriate for kids turning 5 to kids turning 12 (we can scale the complexity of the building projects to suit the age of the children attending).

Building is an activity that all kids love, and at the Citiblocs Block Party, the sky is literally the limit! We'll show the kids how to play games and use precision-cut wooden blocks in creative and innovative ways that will have them wishing the party would never end! Think your kids are past playing with blocks? Give ours a try!!

Party like a Parasaurolophous! Appropriate for kids turning 5 to turning 8.

Each participant makes an awesome etching of their favorite dinosaur or fossil!

Party prehistoric style!

Dynamic Earth

dynamic volcano

The Volcano Party! Appropriate for kids turning 5 and up.

Earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions! Kids model and demonstrate the phenomena that shape our ever-changing planet while learning about plate tectonics, meteorology and more! Every participant takes home their own erupt-able Volcano!

The Earthquake Experiment performed during "Dynamic Earth" uses a Milky Way candy bar. Milky Way bars DO NOT CONTAIN Peanut products, but since they are manufactured in the same facility as Snickers (which do contain peanuts), we would like to call this to your attention.

As a rule, our instructors do NOT allow any participants, even those without allergies, to eat the Milky Way.

Fizz, Bubble, POW!


Fizzing, Foaming, Bubbling Reactions and MORE! Appropriate for kids turning 4 to kids turning 8.

It's everything kids want from a "Science" party! This includes real test tubes and flasks along with mysterious potions that foam and bubble! We also play a "bug hunt" game and learn about natural selection. Fizz... Bubble... POW!... Science!

Lego Zipline Party!


Let's Get Building! Appropriate for kids turning 7 and up.

Each participant will build the custom-designed Pow!Science! Zipline Runner*!

Even seasoned Lego Veterans will love the simple but innovative Zipline Runner we've designed for this party. Each participant will build their own Zipline Runner, and zzzZZZZIP them down the line at high speed! Young Engineers will then divide and conquer, building a Straws and Connectors Tower that reaches up, up -and over the Zipline, creating a tunnel for Zipline Runners to fly through!

"The Lego Party"; one of our newest themes and it's getting everyone very excited.

Did we mention that as a bonus building project we'll make and spin the World's Easiest Lego Battle Top? Less than 10 seconds to build! Incredible spin times!!

Unlike our other themes, most of the time during this party the kids are up and moving around the room excitedly. This party tends to be a little noisier than our other party themes, and we welcome fun-spirited parents who want to join the action and help keep the Zipline Runners Zipping!

As there is no "Take Home" item made during this party, Goody Bags are included in your party price!

Birthday Party FAQs

Q: What Should I bring?
A: Cake & refreshments & paper goods(cups, plates, napkins etc) and candles. We have a "dorm room" sized refrigerator (short cube shaped) to keep juice boxes, Hoodsie cups etc. cold. Keeps ice cream frozen. Does not fit Ice Cream Cakes!

Q: When can I arrive?
A: Please plan to arrive about 15 minutes prior to the start of your party. This makes sure that we have time to prepare the party room for you and your guests including cleaning up from the party before yours!

Q: Wow, my party's Science Instructor is AMAZING!! Can I tip him or her?
A: Sure! We certainly encourage tipping your instructor if you feel they did a great job! You can tip them directly or we can even add it on to your party balance.

Q: Any restrictions on what sort of food I may bring?
A: Almost none. It's your party. Bring whatever you like; no alcoholic beverages are permitted.

Q: Do you charge for adults? What about toddlers?
A: We absolutely do NOT charge for adults! Toddlers are generally not counted towards your headcount unless they participate in the experiments. For example, at the 'Volcano' Party, we count volcanoes at the end. Whoever made one gets counted.

Q: Should I bring a table cloth?
A: Only if your child wants a certain theme (Spiderman, Star Wars, etc). The party tables are covered with heavy white craft paper during the science experiments. We remove the paper and sanitize the tables after the Science & before you serve the refreshments. The tables are brightly colored plastic, and don't need to be covered.

Q: What about Goody Bags?

A: You can certainly bring your own, but we also provide them as an add-on service with the Candy Blaster! Each participant receives a bag pre-loaded with sciencey goodies (such as rainbow glasses, glowing lizards, globe keychains, bouncy balls, punch balloons etc) and then we play with the Candy Blaster!

Please Note: The following party themes include Goody Bags as a take home item: Chem 201, Citibocks, Fizz-Bubble-Pow, and LEGO Zipline.

Price for Candy Blaster! with Goody Bags: $45.00 for up to 15 kids, $3.00 per additional child

Price for Candy Blaster! when you bring your own Goody Bags: $20.00

Q: Do you have an incredible, pyrotechnic Birthday Candle that shoots sparks and plays the Happy Birthday Song?
