Can I bring alcohol to my event?

For private adults events (booked as a private game at checkout, with no minors attending, even to watch) you may bring your own alcoholic drinks.


No hard liquor. Beer, wine, cider and pre canned drinks only. Our staff reserve the right to refuse service to any groups not drinking responsibly.

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?

We do not currently provide any food or drinks, but you are welcome to bring your own! Tables for your event can be reserved for 45 minutes after your activity for a $45 fee.


If you have not made a private event reservation, please contact us to reserve a table (subject to availability).


Adult groups may bring their own alcohol, but we politley request no glassware or bottles.

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 $360 (inc. tax) for the 12 player minimum. You can then add additional players up to a maximum of 24 for $30/per player.


Booking for more than 24 players? No problem! Please contact us and we'll help you arrange your larger event.
