+ How many players are needed to play Archery Tag?

A minimum of 6 players are required for a game to play, a maximum of 20 players can play at any one time.

+ Will it hurt?

All our arrows are foam tipped ( like a big marshmallow) so impact feels like being hit with a beanbag , it's noticeable that you've been hit but it doesn't hurt! Archery Tag leaves no bruises from being struck by an arrow, and is known as a family friendly version of paintball that's competitive and fun!

Absolutely! We encourage them to come in different costumes and we can arrange special events such as firing squads at request of the group - just be sure to mark out whose lucky day it is!

+ Can I play if i'm pregnant?

We wouldn't recommend anybody who is pregnant play due to the nature of the sport of combat archery. It requires dynamic movement, dodging projectiles and manuevering around obstacles inside the arena so we wouldn't want to put any mother and child at risk. However we still very much welcome those who are pregnant to spectate on the side and also take part in target practice just not in the actual game for their own as well as the child's health and safety.
