Recommended Ages 7 y.o. – 12 y.o.

Polymer string making using pipettes, syringes and test tubes. The polymer strings are made by combining a sodium alginate solution (that we make ourselves) with a calcium chloride solution. Who can make the longest strings? Can you make multi-coloured strings?



Recommended Ages 5 y.o.- 9 y.o.

Let's make a bubbleator! This is a take-home bubble making machine made from easy to find household items that can make a huge tower of tiny bubbles.

Get Slimed

Recommended Ages 6 y.o. – 12 y.o.

The best slime making you’ve ever seen using pipettes syringes and test tubes. Slime comes in a variety of versions for you to choose. We use amazing dissolving PVA bags for our slime.

Slime making is always a hit.


Lava Lamps

Recommended Ages 5 y.o.- 11 y.o.

Choose your groovy lamp colour, add the oil and the bubble activating tablet to get the chemical reaction under way. Watch as the gas draws the coloured liquid to the top of the tube and drops it back again to start the whole process over again. Looks amazing!


Fizzy Bath Bombs

Recommended Ages 9 y.o – 12 y.o

Mix sodium bicarbonate with citric acid to give that famous bath time fizz! Now to make it really fun, add water, essential oils and your choice of colours to make your bath bomb look and smell incredible!

Keeping you COVIDsafe

For Lab Parties

Every party guest gets their own clean set of equipment, including a fresh labcoat and safety glasses. Shared resources will be kept to a minimum, and everyone still gets to take their creations home!

For all Parties

We supply sanitiser to every guest, including adults, and ask that everyone uses it before starting. There are sanitiser stations at the entrance as well as dotted throughout TwistED.

High ceilings, large roller doors, evaporative cooling and fresh air supply mean there is plenty of clean air flowing through blue, green & tangerine.

We have air purifiers in our party rooms to keep the air clean and fresh.

We will do our best to maintain a safe distance between our party host and guests, but keep the fun level to the max! Get ready for the BEST. PARTY. EVER!

Only $9.95 each

Moorabbin Party FAQs

Both Lab parties and Explore parties go for 2 hrs and 15 mins.

Travelling parties were a big part of Twisted Science in our early days but unfortunately we don't do them any longer. We now concentrate on what we do best, making sure all visitors have an amazing time when they come to one of our TwistED Science centres!

We have a minimum of 12 for our Lab parties and Explore parties. If you would like to book for a smaller group you can, but the minimum price is for 12.

We recommend keeping your party at 30 children or below but if you want to go bigger, please contact us for options and we will put together an incredible custom package just for you!

Yes you can! You can book out either Echuca or Moorabbin for a large event so you can have the whole place to yourself 🙂 If you would like to book the entire venue please contact us early as we will need to block out the day to other visitors.

Absolutely! Parties are designed with fun as the primary objective. We have school sessions that are based around learning and the curriculum but our parties are all about fun!

Yes our parties are extremely safe! We have had years of experience and conducted thousands of kids parties. We know which chemicals are safe for kids and which aren’t and we make sure the kids take safety precautions while experimenting. We conduct regular risk assessments on all our experiments as well as our exhibit floor area to ensure our customers and staff are as safe as possible.

Don't worry, just book the expected minimum and we can adjust numbers up to a week before the party. We finalise payment and numbers a week before the party so we have time to get everything ready for your big day.

A deposit is required to lock in your time and date and then payment is finalised a week before the party.

We recommend Explore parties for groups with children under 5. Both Lab parties and Explore parties are great for ages 5 and up. Our Lab parties are designed primarily for 5 - 12 year olds, depending on the experiment difficulty but older children and adults can always book a party without kids for something different. TwistED really is an all ages activity. 

Unfortunately not. Due to potential food allergies and cleaning issues we don't allow outside food for parties. There is one exception, the cake!

You are welcome to bring your own cake in for your party. We have a café on site that can provide party food for guests. Choose from our amazing Party Feast boxes and share plates. We can even organise party platters for parents of guests!

Yes absolutely! You can bring anything in to the party rooms to decorate it though we do ask you don't stick anything to the walls to avoid paint damage.

Yes, we can provide savoury platters of sandwiches and hot pastries as well as a delicious sweets platter. We also have gluten free and vegetarian options.

Please allow 10 days if you intend on adding any of these options to your party order. You can select these platters as an add-on when you are booking your party online. Our café staff will section off an area of the café where parents can enjoy their platters. You can even organise a coffee tab on the day.

Yes, you can take photos of your party group in your private party room upstairs but please refrain from taking photos of other children on the exhibit floor for privacy reasons.

We understand that under certain circumstances, you may need to cancel your party. We can issue you with a credit via a gift card to the value of the amount paid. Gift cards are valid for 3 years and can be used to book another party, book general entry for TwistED, or can be redeemed in our café and retail store.
