Childrens' parties at Googols allow tots free rein of the childcare facilities for two hours. Party guests aged 1 to 12 can scramble around the indoor climbing structure, learn about nature in the kid-friendly science museum, and conduct Socratic seminars on cooties in the outdoor playground. Each of the six party guests receives a slice of pizza and a drink, and supplies for additional tykes can be added ($7.50 per child). A host or hostess from Googol's expert staff shepherds the progress of the party, taking care of setup and cleanup so parents can focus on building present fortresses. Prior to the party, themed decorations can be selected, ensuring that matching table settings greet each incoming partygoer.
