A GAME JUST FOR KIDS!
Nerf Wars is the ultimate game for our younger players. Swap out the bows for Nerf blasters and head into the arena for an action-packed battle!
This easier game is perfect for ages 5 - 8, before they're able to play combat archery.
No experience is required, with all training and equipment provided on the day.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
What time should I arrive for my Nerf Party?
Please ensure that you arrive 15 minutes before your session so that everyone has enough time to sign the waiver and get ready to play.
What ages are suitable for Nerf Wars?
For a Nerf Wars party, we suggest most players are aged 5-8. If a few players in the group are younger or older, that's okay.
If the majority are older than that range, then we would suggest booking a regular Archery Games party instead as this will be a better experience for the group.
For younger kids, we suggest booking a party at our indoor playground - Boston Playground.
Nerf Wars is not available for adults groups.
Will my group have a private experience?
If you book a private game (min 12 players) your group will enjoy the entire arena to yourselves, along with a private training session and dedicated referee for your group only. Other customers may be in the facility during your party and the party table is in our shared lobby area, not a private room.
Do you provide utensils, plates and place settings?
We can provide plates & napkins for pizza parties. If you would like additional place settings and table decorations, feel free to bring your own!
Can participants bring their own Nerf guns from home?
Yes, however they must be genuine Nerf brand guns that use the dart style ammunition.
We have plenty of ammunition for everyone, so please do not bring your own as it will not be possible to recover your darts after the game.
We reserve the right to remove any outside guns from play if they are deemed to be dangerous or causing a problem in the game.
Does an adult need to supervise the game?
While we do have an Archery Games referee inside the arena for all Nerf Wars games, we do suggest one or two adults from the party also join in to assist some of the children that need help.
This is not a requirement, but it will improve the experience for everyone involved as the referree won't need to stop the game if there is an issue with one of the players.
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 the Nerf darts hurt?
We use the Nerf dart style ammunition as it has been designed for the 5+ age range, and doesn't hit hard enough to cause any pain.
All participants are also provided with a full head helmet and mask, so there is no risk of injury to the eyes or face.
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.
What is the cancellation policy?
If you have to cancel or are unable to make your booking, please contact us as soon as possible. We do not require payment at the time of booking but appreciate being informed of cancellations so we can open up the time slot to other players. Payment is optional at time of online booking or can be paid upon arrival at Archery Games.
No charges if cancelled with over 7 days until your booking
50% charge if cancelled within 7 days of your booking
If the number of participants in my group changes after booking, do I need to inform Archery Games?
If you have booked a private event, then you do not need to inform us if your player count changes (unless you think there will be less than 12 players or more than 24 players on the day).
For public games (under 12 players), please let us know as soon as possible if you think there will be a change to your number of attendees.
Do you have any other activities?
Yes, Room Escape Boston is located in the same building! They have 2 immersive, multi-room escape games and 1 online escape experience. The physical rooms can be booked for $35(inc. tax) per player and the virtual game is available for $30(inc. tax) per team of 4.
