Are science parties worth the high cost?

I'm thinking of doing a science party for my son's sixth birthday as he loves doing experiments. I've contacted a few companies and the prices seem to be between £200-250 for an hour. Whilst I'm not quite as tight as DH (who said he didn't expect to pay more than for a facepainter) it seems very expensive. If you've done one, was it worth it? There isn't the option to pay on a per child basis. I was thinking of inviting about 8 children.

On the other hand although the price is high I suppose it could easily cost nearly that much doing a large party at soft play or trampolining.

I know I could set up some experiments myself, or for that matter just have some of DS's friends over for tea, cake and a couple of party games, but get very anxious at the thought of supervising and entertaining multiple children.

Not sure how many people ever venture onto this board, but should anyone ever be researching this, I highly recommend doing a science party. We used Science Boffins and the presenter was absolutely brilliant.
