You can now schedule your child’s birthday party online! No need to remember to call during business hours.

At a SD Discovery Center birthday party, we do the setup and pick up!

We provide a festively decorated area with balloons. Each guest gets a small favor and the birthday child gets a toy from our store. Your young guests will be able to enjoy the SD Discovery Center before and after the festivities. Grown up guests are free.

You are welcome to bring in your own food and kid friendly beverages regardless of whether you want to keep it simple with cake and punch or do a full blown pizza and pop lunch. We have found most families like to provide their own plates, cups, and eating ware to follow a favorite theme.

Parties are scheduled for one and a half hours with a 30 minute grace period to allow a transition to the next party. 

The fee includes up to 10 child guests plus the birthday child. Extra guests may be added at $4/child.


Members: $45

Non-members: $60

You may pay the day of your party.

Select the day and time you wish the party to start. Please note that the default length for parties is 1.5 hours. When you provide your information in the scheduling form, you may have the option to have a 2 hour party as long as it does not interfere with a previously scheduled party. If the two hour party duration is not an option, it means there is a party already scheduled to start during that 2 hour window.

If you need a party longer than 2 hours, please call the SD Discovery Center at 605-224-8295.
