FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

This exciting, action-packed game offers the ultimate family-friendly experience that is fun for everyone.
Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, all Archery Games and Nerf Wars participants must sign our waiver before entering the arena. It's a quick form that you can either sign ahead of time on your phone or computer, or on our tablets when you arrive.
For a faster check in, we encourage all players to sign ahead of time.
How long is each session?
Each session is 75 minutes long. This includes 25 minutes of briefing, basic archery training and practice time, and followed by 50 minutes of game play with short breaks.
Players will have opportunities for refreshments or washroom breaks during the halftime break.
Can I book an event outside of your normal opening hours?
Yes! Private Events with a minimum of 12 players can be booked at any time outside of our opening hours.
To do this, please contact us with your desired time, group size and any other information related to your event.
Is there an age restriction?
For Open Games, players must be aged 7 and up to join a game.
For younger players, we have an exciting indoor playground right here in the same building! Learn more about Boston Playground here.
I don't have any archery experience, can I still play?
No archery experience is required to play. Prior to the actual game play, all players will be provided basic training and sufficient time to practice shooting.
A dedicated staff member will help train all players to become champions on the playing field!
What should I wear?
A pair of clean athletic indoor shoes is required to enter the arena. We suggest wearing athletic clothing such as t-shirt and shorts. We also recommend removing all jewelry prior to game play.
For players who wear glasses, we have specially-cut masks for you, but we recommend wearing contacts if you can.
Do you provide food & drinks? Can I bring my own?
Yes! We've teamed up with local family-favourite restaurant The Brown Jug to deliver food right to your table! With pizza, wings and other tasty sharing foods, you'll be sure to have something everyone can enjoy.
If you book a private game, then you will have access to one of our party tables for 45 minutes after your game ends. You can view the food menu here.
We recommend reserving at table at The Brown Jug and walking 2 minutes across the parking lot to eat there, if you would prefer a restaurant experience.
We also recommend ordering/reserving for 1 hour and 15 minutes after your game start time.
You may bring in your own non-alcoholic drinks & cake for parties, but all other outside food is prohibited.
What if I'm late for my session?
All players should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their reserved game time.
In the instance where safety training is missed, we may decide at our discretion whether any late arrivals may participate in game play. Please contact us and let us know if you or your group will be late and we will do our best to accommodate. However, arriving late will likely result in less game play time and a limited experience.
Can I book a private session for my group only?
Yes! Private bookings are available to book online with as few as 12 players, to a maximum of 24. With this, your group will get the entire arena to yourselves! Only guests that you book with will be able to join your game.
Private booking prices start at $420(inc. tax) for the 12 player minimum. You can then add additional players up to a maximum of 24 for $35(inc. tax)/per player.
Private Games can also be booked outside of our normal opening hours.
Booking for more than 24 players? No problem! Please contact us and we'll help you arrange your larger event.

What is the cancellation policy?

If the number of participants in my group changes after booking, do I need to inform Archery Games?
