Why is the pricing so high? I just wanted to have my 5- year daughter slip on a tail for a quick experience!
"This is such a fintastic question!
Mer-Cademy is (currently) mobile and is based in a land-locked and seasonal area that in order to justify safety to our guests, students, and our professional talent, certification and extended licensing of some our instructors, our 3 year research determined we base our pricing :
The cost of materials and supplies, such as the mermaid tail, safety equipment, or character costumes for parties.
The cost for the actual talent or instructor.
The cost of transportation and travel to and from your event.
The cost of insurance and liability.
The cost of professional training and experience.
Equipment and supplies.
Private versus group class settings.
The high demand with the new movie release
Any costs for pool rental.
We understand that our prices may seem high, but we believe that our services are worth it. Our mermaids are professional performers who have years of experience, and we only use the highest quality materials. We also offer a variety of packages to fit your budget.
Also, We at Mer-cademy know that every family has different financial constraints. If our prices are out of your range, we may be able to work something out, which may include; offer discounts for first-time bookings, group party lessons, bulk bookings, or bookings during off-peak hours.
Please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your options. We are confident that we can find a solution that works for you.
We have our own tails and our own pool, does that affect rates?
While this factor may decrease the rate, the pricing is based on requested private booking of our trained professionals.
What if Weather rains out our pool party?
Unless the party is canceled and rescheduled, we will still do our best to provide entertainment for your booking.
