Here’s what a recent party guest had to say: “We attended a science center birthday party and they did a great job! 10/10 would recommend, everyone wore masks and there was plenty of space to social distance. After our small group gathering we were able to explore, plenty of space to social distance! We had a great time.”
At Orlando Science Center, we have birthday parties down to a science!
