Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the booking process work?
A: It all starts with a conversation about what program you’d like and when you’d like it. Once we can confirm details, you’ll receive an invoice and be officially booked in our calendars.
Q: Are these shows or activities?
A: It depends on the event! Insect Safaris and Hide-A-Bug are open, guided activities, while the Arthropod Petting Zoo and Spooky Bones and Creepy Crawlies are shows.
Q: How many kids can attend a program?
A: Because our goal is always close, hands-on shows and programs, the maximum group size is 25 kids.
Q: Can you do large assemblies?
A: I like to keep things close and as hands-on as possible, and so we cannot do bigger shows for the time being.
Q: Do adults count towards audience limits?
A: Nope! They’re well-behaved enough!
Q: What is the starting price for a show?
A: Starting price for a standard show or program for 25 kids is $250, with progressive incremental discounts for block-booking multiple shows/programs/groups on the same day!

A: Yes, which are subject to change depending on the distance from our home base in Shirley, MA.
Q: How far in advance do you need for booking?
A: 3-4 weeks minimum is preferred.
Q: How far ahead can I book?
A: We typically book at most a year out.
