What is combat archery?
Archery Games offers combat archery which is played similar to dodgeball - but with bows and soft foam-tipped arrows. This exciting, action-packed game offers the ultimate family-friendly experience that is fun for everyone.
We also offer Nerf Wars in the archery arena for ages 5+.
Is there an age restriction?
The recommended age is 10 years old and up - but we do have special Youth Hours every Sat/Sun from 9 - 11am where the arena is exclusively for ages 7 - 12. For participants who are under 18 years old, parents or guardians must sign the waiver for their minor(s).
Nerf Wars is for ages 5+ and all equipment is provided. You can view our Booking page for more information and to see upcoming games.
Can we bring our own food/drink?
Food can be ordered for after your session for the ultimate party experience! You can also reserve our party tables - free of charge!
Food must be ordered from our catering partner, Chelsea Station, and the catering menu is available here. Outside food is not allowed in the facility but you can bring your own drinks / snacks (no alcohol).

How long is each session?
Each session is 75 minutes long. This includes 25 minutes of briefing, basic archery training and practice time, and follows by 50 minutes of game play. Players will have opportunities for refreshments or washroom breaks between games.
Double sessions are offered for $15 per player directly after a session.
Can I book a private session for my group only?
To block off an entire session during our public hours, the cost is $450 per hour. This session will be entirely private for your group and groups larger than 20 can be accommodated.
We require that all private bookings are paid online.
In the case of cancellations within 48 hours of the booking, the full amount will be charged.
If you have a larger group or event, please contact us and we will gladly work with you to accommodate. We can also arrange for private bookings outside of our regular hours.
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 jewellery prior to game play.
For players who wear glasses, we have specially-cut masks for you!
What if I am late for my session?
All players should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to 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. No refunds are issued for players arriving late.
