Archery Tag is a team building activity commonly referred to as combat archery or arrow tag. It includes the best aspect of Archery and Dodgeball into one sport.
‘Tag’ means you will fire a projectile at your friends or coworkers just like any other team based combat game like paintball but with a twist! Your projectile will be a foam-tip arrow!
Our arrows come in two styles: high-impact arrows and low-impact arrows. And the arrows live up to their name! High-impact arrows are used for corporate team-building events, bachelor parties, and other events with 18+ participants. Our low-impact arrows are used for kid’s birthday parties.
Archery Tag is a technical and dynamic activity which makes it extremely important for all participants to know how to shoot an arrow before they start playing. This is the number 1 rule for all participants in order for everyone to experience maximum fun while playing Archery Tag.
Here are AirballingOC, we always start our Archery Tag with 15 minutes of archery practice to ensure everyone can fire an arrow before we launch our first Arrow Tag game.
Once everyone is comfortable shooting arrows and running + shooting arrows simultaneously, we will introduce a variety of combat archery games.
The gameplay of our game modes will vary heavily depending on the size of the mobile arena that we create on your behalf. Hosts have the option to choose a small or large map. (More details on this below)
Some of the games you’ll play are Medic, Team Deathmatch, Last Man Standing, Minefield, Infection, The Last King, V.I.P, League, Dodgeball, and Capture the Flag.
In most of our games, participants will run to the middle where all the foam tip arrows will be laid out just like Hunger Games. For this exact reason, we sometimes call our Archery Tag experience – Real Life Hunger Games.
Archery Tag is much more intense in a smaller map when inflatables and players are condensed into a smaller space. In this game play, a lot of arrows fly back and forth; thus why we refer it to as combat archery.
The lack of space and few inflatables exposes players and force participants to engage in a fierce round of Arrow Tag. This type of Archery Tag is recommended for active and highly competitive individual who are inclined to sports like paintball and airsoft.
For archery tag played in open space or a large open area, the game style becomes similar to a stress-free version of dodgeball where catching an arrow becomes just as important as hitting an opponent with an arrow. This type of Archery Tag is recommended for people who are looking for a non-strenuous time outside with their friends and would prefer to practice the sport of archery with a little twist than to engage in a full blow out competition.
The rules of Archery Tag are personalized to each game our Event Coordinator hosts. However, there are general rules to follow to follow safety protocols:
To place an arrow on the bow correctly:
To fire an arrow:
To run and fire simultaneously:
We like to keep our Archery Tag novel and interesting throughout the entire event. To do so, we have created a few combat archery games that have their own unique rules and objectives!
Any outdoor park works and is the economical route. At most, you’ll have to get a permit that ranges from $75-$200.
If you don’t mind expending a bit more, you can also reserve a private indoor venue or gym for us to create an indoor Archery Arena on your behalf.
The only additional fee is a delivery fee if your location is outside of 20 miles from our zip code, 92804. And, we’ll be upfront with you should there be any additional fees before you book with us. Should you be a resident of Los Angeles, check out AirballingLA’s Archery Tag Rental.
