Archery Warz FAQ


Is it safe?

You betcha!

It’s SAFE Enough for KIDS, but fun enough for all!

The Archery Warz arrows are specially designed for safety.  Arrows use soft foam tips and travel at a relatively slow velocity to minimize danger and pain from impact.  Masks are worn at all times to protect the eyes and face, and purposeful “head shots” are illegal in the game of Archery Warz.

 

 


QUESTION: Are You Insured?
ANSWER: We are indeed fully insured. For groups requiring a Certificate of Insurance, we can provide that at the time of a booking agreement. What size space is needed to play?We can be very flexible with space. An area as little as 100’x50′ can be used, but may result in RVG of CT limiting the number of barriers that get set-up.


QUESTION: Are there age limitations?
ANSWER: Because the game is so safe, players as young as 10 and as old as… well, as old as whoever wants to get out there, may play.


QUESTION:


QUESTION:  Can you play in the rain?
ANSWER: In certain cases, if the rain is light, we may be able to continue with the event.  The equipment can handle this type of weather.  The main concerns become safety and enjoyment.  A slick playing area may be a safety hazard, and the Game Coach may halt play if he or she feels the players are at risk of injury.

As the event approaches, we will be watching the weather reports and will be in contact with you if conditions look questionable.  Once the Game Coach is on site and set up, we cannot provide a refund due to weather, so we will do our best to avoid this situation.


QUESTION: What are the Archery Tag Bows and Arrows like?
ANSWER: The bows are specially designed Archery Tag Bows, capable of producing a specific draw weight (28 pounds) for safety.  The arrows are specially designed with a thick foam tip for safety.  We use only official Archery Tag®  equipment.


QUESTION: What are the barriers like?
ANSWER: Depending on the playing area, we will probably add our pop-up barriers. These are commercial grade barriers.  The barriers can be used in the sand, on grass, or indoors.


QUESTION: How many games can we play during our event?
ANSWER: The number of games depends on the type of game play and scenarios you choose. For standard Team Missions and “Mano-a-Mano” games we can usually average 5-6 games per hour. This includes  time for instruction and getting the players geared up.

Some missions and scenarios can take much longer. During the booking process we will find out from you what your goals are for your event and plan a day that will fulfill those goals.


QUESTION:  How many players can play at once?
ANSWER: Depending on the mission or scenario we currently have equipment for 10 players at a time. We can bring extra at an additional cost of $15 per bow.  Typical games last approximately 6-10 minutes each, so players can rotate in and out as needed to accommodate more participants.  For larger groups we can have as many as 12 players on the field, although this requires more space for the playing area.


QUESTION: Do I tip the Game Coach?
ANSWER: The Game Coach is there to ensure that your group is making the most of our high-tech fun.  He tutors, inspires and entertains.  Tipping for exceptional service is a great idea, but not required.


QUESTION: Do I have to pay for the party in advance?
ANSWER: Our reservations go quickly.  In order to hold your booking, you must pay online or arrange to drop your payment with us.  Otherwise, your date and time is still open to booking by others.


QUESTION:  I submitted a Booking Request, but have not seen  an e-mail  or invoice.  Why?
ANSWER: Please check your “Spam” or “Junk” folder in your e-mail program to make sure our response didn’t get sent there.  Some e-mail programs read the “video games” in our name as spam.  Please be sure to mark our email as “not spam” so our e-mails come to your inbox from now on!
