Minimum age is 8 for our equipment due its size and weight. Yes, we would allow a large 7 year old to play or even a 6 year old who is the brother of a 10 year old birthday boy (but only with dad's assistance and with some restrictions such as playing from a sniper tower). Our equipment has heft to it and an hour of play for 6 or 7 year olds would be too much for them.
Battleground parties last a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes. You can arrive on time for your party or up to 15 minutes before it begins. If you arrive earlier than that, the previous party will probably still be vacating the party gazebo as an fyi. In the first half hour of your scheduled time we collect your guests (sometimes party guests arrive a little late so that is built in), orient them to the style of play and missions, pass out the equipment, show them how to use the equipment and take your group photo of the guests in their party gear. We then start the first 30 minutes of play. A unique feature of our field is that we have a platform overlooking the field that allows parents and other non-playing guests to see most of the activity and join in the fun (at least vicariously). After thirty minutes of play, you head back to your gazebo for pizza, soda and chips. After that 30 minute food break, you go back to the field for 30 more minutes of play. After the second 30 minutes or play are up, you go back to the gazebo, for birthday cake (you bring) and to open presents. After that 30 minute time frame is up, we allow 15 minutes for packing up and for pickup of the guests. In consideration of the next arriving party, please make room for the next arriving party within those 15 minutes.

Birthday parties in NY are subject to NYS sales tax.
Everything is the same as the Party option above except you can substitute a 30 minute Squirt Tube Frenzy battle in our maze for the second laser tag session. A great way to cool off after an intense laser tag session. Price is the same as option above. Please specify that you want this option on the party planner form. Thanks!
Unless your party is using 20 or more of our taggers, we will put additional players on the field (if they are present) to join the play during your sessions. This is standard operating procedure in the laser tag business. They will be split onto your party teams to make the teams as even as possibl
