"I was thoroughly impressed from start to finish. You guys were incredibly easy to work with, and the party helpers couldn't have been better with the kids. Thank you for making our party experience easy!"

"It was a fantastic party. The party room was amazing, the hosts were so engaging, and the whole planning process was so easy. I have already had two parents tell me they are considering parties there in the future they enjoyed It so much."

"I just want to say again how easy and stress free the process is of having a party at the CSC. The hosts are always fabulous- they help with set up, help with all the guests, engage the birthday kid and friends, and had everything cleaned up before I even realized it. They are friendly, personable, and excited to be there helping our kids celebrate. Thank you so much for making this day easy and special."

"You guys did a wonderful job! My daughter had a fantastic time and so did all her friends! It was very easy for us from start to finish and you made the day enjoyable and hassle free. The room was very large and open and allowed the kids to play and dance to the wonderful soundtrack you provided. The craft provided was fun and everyone really enjoyed the exhibits. We will surely be back to have another party at the CT Science Center!"

"Our hosts were EXCELLENT! They handled a room a full of children with ease. They were knowledgeable and fun! Every person involved was spot on. I work pretty intense hours and due to my meeting schedules it’s hard to get time to handle things during the day. I was able to get the final details settled with a few voice mail and emails at my convenience. PRICELESS."

"First time I’ve been able to relax and enjoy my kid’s party because you guys took care of everything."

"This was a great party experience. We love the CT Science Center so it was a no brainer to have the party here. Everything was awesome from start to finish. As parents we were able to enjoy ourselves as much as the kids did."
