      Snapology hosted an awesome birthday party for my 7-year old. The kids loved building a unicorn kitty and its kingdom! We had so much fun and I definitely recommend Snapology to anybody who wants to have an event where the kids stay interacting with each other.

      We recently held a 6th birthday part at Snapology and it was a big hit! We had a large age range and none of the kids were bored. Becka was very responsive and helpful during the planning stages, and our hosts were great during the party! My kids loved it and can't wait to go back. Thank you, Snapology!

      All parties are 90 minutes long with the ability to upgrade to a 2-hour party during some time slots.

      How far in advance do I need to reserve a spot?

      We recommend that you reserve your party as far in advance as possible.  Party spaces book fast, especially during the colder months.

      Do the party goers get to keep what they build?

      At our birthday parties, while the party goers don’t get to keep what they build, we encourage parents to capture the fun-filled moments with plenty of pictures.

      Our carefully curated kits include unique and traditional bricks, as well as electronic components for motorized themes. These kits allow your child and their guests to create extraordinary, creative builds and even working machines or functioning robots, depending on the chosen theme.

      Unfortunately, due to the high cost of the kits, ranging from $100 to $250 per kit depending on the theme, we cannot send the building projects home.

      However, we offer goodie bags with mini building block sets as an optional add-on, so you can still send the kids home with a special gift to continue their building adventures.

      Do Snapology parties appeal to children of all ages?

      One of the best things about Snapology is its wide appeal to children of all ages. We host parties for children from 4 years old to 14 years old. (Parents of all ages love them too!)

      What extras do you offer?

      We offer a Pizza and Drink Package and a Cupcake Package for our Lancaster location and cupcake toppers and goodie bags for all party locations. Click here to see all the details.
