WHAT AGE IS THIS FOR?
Our main space is primarily for ages 4-12, but in reality everyone from teens to adults finds something they love doing at Genius Gems. We have even hosted awesome parties for teens and adults at night! For the youngest ones, ages 3-5, we offer a dedicated room adjacent to the main space that features age-appropriate activities. For ages 10 and up, we offer more complex design challenges, from Tower Defense to Marble Runs, and they can also explore our large collection of Cubelets, Ozobots and other hands-on robotics. Our main rule is that we ask children and adults not to knock over projects on purpose, which can be difficult for children under the age of four to follow. We ask all guests entering our space to follow our rules, so please consider the age of your child before purchasing tickets.
CAN I DROP MY CHILD OFF?
During general admission/open play, a parent/guardian is required to remain present at all times, and is responsible for his or her child at all times. Note: we do not permit caregivers to use headphones or ear plugs, as caregivers are expected to be directly supervising their children at all times. Drop off is only permitted when a child is enrolled in a class, camp, and certain special events. Again, we are not a day care, and parents/guardians should never leave a child unattended at Genius Gems for general admission play.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE OFF MY SHOES TO PLAY?
Guests can keep their shoes on when in our outdoor Terrace. Guests are NOT permitted to wear shoes on carpeted areas inside our space, so don’t forget a pair of socks! We have a coat closet where you may leave your shoes. We also offer socks or booties for sale ($2 per pair) at our concession area.
DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?
Please check our social media (@geniusgemsllc) for special and limited time offers.
WHAT DO ADULTS DO AT GENIUS GEMS?
Many parents and caregivers enjoy getting hands-on and participating in everything we offer, from magnetic tile building to playing with robots. We find the more involved the caregivers get, the more they love the Genius Gems experience.
IS THERE PARKING AT GENIUS GEMS?
Yes, there is ample free parking on-site, so you never have to stress about feeding the meter or finding a space. We are also conveniently located within walking distance of the Millburn train station.
