Frequently asked questions
Where are you located?
We are currently only based in Auckland.
Do I need to bring anything? (can we bring our own guns?)
Our Nerf battles include the following:
How much does it cost?
Pricing is as follows:
How long does the Nerf battle last?
The standard duration for our Nerf or Laser Strike party is 90 minutes, not including set up and pack up times. If you want a combined Nerf and Laser Strike party, you get an extra 30 minutes (total of 2 hours) and there is an additonal cost of $50.
How much space do you need?
Unlike paintball, we don't need a very big space at all. Generally speaking, about the size of half a basketball court is sufficient. So that's roughly 14m x 15m.
Do you arrive earlier to set up?
Yes we arrive about half an hour before the booked time so we have enough time to set up. It takes 30 to 40 minutes to pack up as well.
What happens when it rains?
If it is only light rain, generally we can proceed. In an event of extreme weather (heavy rain or wind) then we will have to look at rescheduling.
Can we play at a public park?
Yes, in most cases we can freely use a public park or reserve. There are exceptions, such as Cornwall Park. You can check with us first if you are unsure.
Can we do this indoors?
Absolutely! Playing Nerf indoor is just as much fun as doing it outdoors. Even more so with Laser Strike parties!
Do you do adult parties?
As they say, you are only as old as you feel. So yes we do!
What are your session times?
Our standard sessions are 10 or 10.30 am in the morning and 2 or 2.30 pm in the afternoon on weekends. We can also do weekdays.
Do you stay and run the games?
Yes we do! We run a couple of objective-based games. So you can sit back, relax and enjoy the show (or join in).
What is the minimum age to play?
Recommended minimum age is 8, but we can do parties for children as young as 5. Generally speaking, it is a little harder to play structured games with 5 year olds but they would still have loads of fun shooting Nerf bullets (or simply picking them up and collecting them!).
Can I pay for "x" number of players but have more turn up and will just swap them around?
The answer to that is no, not really, unless you pay for the extra players. As per our terms and conditions, pricing is for a set number of people who will be playing or participating in the activities for the duration. For example, if a booking has been made for 10 players, then only up to 10 players are allowed to participate in the activities for the duration of the event. You can not have more than 10 players and split them into smaller groups (ie swap around). More players than what has been booked is possible at an additional cost (standard charges apply).
Is 5 or 6 years of age too young for this?
While the recommended minimum age is 8, we have done loads of parties for 6 and even 5 year olds. The difference is that younger children are less likely to play structured games, such as Capture the Flag. They will still have loads of fun by tagging each other and sometimes simply by collecting bullets/darts.
