Birthday Party Guidelines


  • Birthday parties must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.
  • A final guarantee of the number of children and adults you expect to attend is due by noon three weekdays prior to the date of the birthday party. 
  • One parent or guardian of the birthday party child is required to stay the entire time. In total there should be: one adult for every 5 children ages 4 to 7; one adult for every 10 children ages 8-15. You are responsible for supervision of all children at all times.
  • You may bring in your own decorations. However, use of confetti, glitter, bubbles and fireworks is prohibited. The Planetarium will not permit affixing anything to the sheetrock walls by any method (i.e. nails, tacks, tape, glue, Velcro, etc.). Decorations may be attached to the concrete walls. Users will be charged for any damage. For safety reasons, piñatas are not allowed.
  • No additional entertainers may be invited to the party (clowns, jugglers, etc.).
  • Northern Kentucky University reserves the right to change prices.
