This party is recommended for ages 4-12.

Frozen Science Party — Let it go and let it snow at this party!  We’ve got the ticket to create a magical and science-filled day for your little princess or prince.  Enjoy a frozen science demo with dry ice, make snow with the help of some cool chemistry and eat ice cream that is made in front of you using liquid nitrogen. (There is an additional $30 fee to include liquid nitrogen ice cream.)  This party is recommended for ages 3-7.
