We hired Cold Blooded Encounters for a community, family event. It was a wonderful experience all around. Sean was a pleasure to work with and adapted his presentation to meet our programmatic needs. I was particularly impressed with his interaction with the children. Thank you, Cold-Blooded Encounters for making our event a big success! I would highly recommend Cold-Blooded Encounters to camps and school groups!
We absolutely loved having Cold Blooded Encounters for our event. He was patient with the children. He made our son the helper a few times which absolutely made his day! And the taught us all different things the entire time. Definitely would recommend!
I run early childhood programs at a community center and have had Cold Blooded Encounters come out a few times for winter break programs, our summer camp, and our toddler playschool. The show is fantastic, the staff is professional and knowledgeable and great with the kids. They are easy to work with, always on time, and thus I booked them for my son's birthday party too. I've seen other animal/party people in the Charlotte area and have not been impressed, but with this group, you can't go wrong! We've had Sean come out and Daphne too. We love Cold Blooded Encounters and I can't recommend them enough!
Everything was so awesome! Every kid at our party had a wonderful time. Many if not all of the kids said it was the best party ever, including my birthday boy and girl. This is not just for "boys", girls love it too. Be prepared to have enough cake and drinks for parents, because nobody wants to leave this party. My kids will always remember what a great time they had at their Cold Blooded Encounters party! Thanks Sean, you are wonderful with kids.
Had Sean and Ace over for our son's 3rd birthday party with all his class friends and cousins. What an absolutely fantastic time. All kids and adults had a blast and Sean and Ace were great and extermely professional. Thanks again Gentlemen.
Best birthday ever had for 8 year old boy. Sean was fantastic to work with and great with the kids. Very professional and knowledgable. Would reccommend Cold Blooded Encounters without reservation for birthday party!
Perfect party for my son who turned 7, there were about 20, 6/7 year olds with very poor listening skills but Sean kept them totally entertained. They all wanted to touch everything even after it went back in it's box. Sean kept them all under control and entertained them with lots of interactive question and answer sessions about what he was showing them. They all had a blast. Great party, totally would do it again.
We booked a Big Boa Bash for our snake and lizard loving daughter, and it was a wonderful success. We were nervous because we booked without reading reviews and could not be more pleased.
Sean was very professional and did a great job of discussing the animals in a way that reached the kids, regardless of their age. He managed the kids well and kept the attention of a group of 5 and 6 year olds for over an hour.
The animals were very impressive and friendly and were handled in a way that impressed and educated the kids.
We would highly recommend Cole Blooded Encounters for your next party!!!
This is one of the best birthday parties we've ever had. The kids loved learning about the animals and were very excited to get to touch and hold some of them. I would highly recommend Cold Blooded Encounters!
Great show, fair price, tons of cool animals! My boys had a blast & we got lots of feedback from boys (& girls) about how awesome the party was!
