frequently asked questions
What can my group do?
All group guests can access all our Discovery Lab experiences, plus have the option to purchase add-on experiences (pottery painting, harnessed climbing, button making).
Who do you consider a guest?
Anyone in your group who is over the age of 1, including adults, are considered guests and the $5/guest charge applies. The only exception is paid staff chaperones (like teachers).
Can we bring food & drinks?
Yes! Groups who wish to bring food to eat in our facility are charged a $50 room fee. We ask that you please keep all food & drinks in your room and have guests wash hands before returning to the Discovery Lab activities. You’ll need to bring your own plates, utensils and anything else necessary for your food & drinks. There is a Hy-Vee grocery a short 5-minute drive from our facility, in case you forget something.
Can we bring alcoholic beverages?
No, alcoholic beverages are only permitted during private parties and only for guests ages 21 and older.
Can guests stay after the group visit ends?
Guests should plan to leave at the end of the scheduled 2 hour visit.
