We come to a park or location of your choosing, either choose your own or ask us for some park suggestions. We can also help you find the ideal location for your party.
Our hosts arrive 20 – 30min prior to the event start time. They bring all the Nerf equipment need including team vests, safety glasses, tents, tunnels, 2 different types of Nerf guns and (of course) hundred of Nerf darts. An average party will start with the kids competing in a series of tasks. The aim of the tasks to improve aim, coordination and the ability to think strategically. The kids break in the middle for a short food break while our staff swap over the Nerf Guns they are using. The second half include numerous games run by our staff, including Team Death Match, Protect the President and many more At the end all the children participate in collecting the darts before the end of the party. Our hosts are highly trained and will use their experience to adapt the exact structure to ensure that each party is the best party for the guests attending.
Nerf Initiation events are ideal for children aged 6 to 7 years. Older kids graduate to our Nerf wars package.

Rain is an unfortunate risk with outdoor parties. If the rain is only light, we are happy to go ahead if you are. As we generally use parks with trees they help provide some coverage and kids usually think the rain makes it more fun! If the rain is too heavy for the party to safely go ahead, we have a few options but we do ask our customers to wait until the day of the party to make an ultimate decision as the weather forecast can be unreliable and will often predict rain for a day that ends up being mostly clear.
The most popular option in the event of bad weather is to reschedule the party to a new date. Customers have 12 months to chose a new date for their event. The decision to reschedule can be made as late as the actual party start time with no fee or additional cost for the new party date. If the customer chooses to cancel their booking rather than reschedule, we are unable to refund any monies paid and the customer may be subject to our other cancellation policies.
In some cases, customers have access to large covered spaces such as halls, private carparks, school playgrounds etc. If you have access to an appropriate space we are happy to change the location and have our host meet you there. On a couple of occasions in the past, customers used extra large lounge-rooms or garages and we have been able to send our host to their home to do an indoor/outdoor version of the party.
In some cases we may be able to offer an alternate party format. This is something we cannot guarantee as it is entirely dependent on availability of staff and equipment on the given weekend. However, if rescheduling is not an option we will do our best to provide an indoor alternative if wet weather stops an outdoor party from being possible.
Our Nerf War events start for 8 year olds and above. The nature of the games requires a level of comprehension that is suited to children who are a little older. We are happy to have a couple of younger players on the field but they may need assistance from another parent or sibling.
For Nerf Wars, we also do suggest you keep in mind relative sizes of children when asking us to include younger members. Adding a couple of 6 year old players to a field of 8 year olds will generally be fine. Adding a couple of 7 year olds to a field of 13 year olds will often be unsafe as the children in question will likely be significantly different sizes.
For the Nerf Initiation, these parties are specifically designed for younger children aged 6 to 7 years. If the majority of children at the party are going to be under the age of 8 years we recommend the Initiation format. The primary difference between the two events is the way the structure allows younger children to build their understanding, both of how to use the Nerf Guns but also how to play the games. Older players are welcome to participate with the younger guests at this party.
