FAQ's - Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a permit to have a Nerf Party in my local Park?
Each city has their own requirements for reserving park space for Birthdays or Special events. Some city parks do not take reservations - its first come first served, other cities require reservations or permits. We leave that up to the customer to secure the necessary reservations or requirements specifically for that park location for your event. If you need some pointers please get in touch - Nerfpartyoc@gmail.com
My local Park doesn't allow bounce houses or Nerf Parties, what can I do?
Do you belong to a Neighborhood Homeowners Association? Sometimes a grassy area in a community association can be the ideal spot! If you live on a low traffic area street such as a cul-de-sac street we can set up directly on the street but city ordinances will not allow you to block off the street for emergency purposes.
Do you have Liability Insurance?
Yes! If your HOA or Parks and Recreation department needs a copy of our Liability insurance we can email that directly to them.
If my guests arrive at 1:00 pm what time should we start the Nerf battles?
We recommend having the Nerf Battles begin about 15-30 minutes after the arrival time of your guests. Many guests do not arrive on time. If you have booked a 90 minute party - say from 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm and your guests don't arrive until 1:15 or 1:30 they will be missing 15 - 30 minutes of battle time. Unfortunately, we often have several parties booked throughout the day and we need to be on time to the next scheduled event so starting late can create a ripple effect for the next scheduled event.
Can we bring our own Safety glasses if we don't want to purchase yours?
Yes, you may bring your own safety glasses if you'd like! All participants must wear eye protection! We provide free safety glasses (and yours to keep) for the "PREMIUM", "Ultimate" and "Super Ultimate" packages! If you select the "Basic" package the safety glasses are $1 each (yours to keep).
Are participants allowed to bring their own Nerf guns for the battles?
Yes, absolutely! Please leave your Nerf bullets at home and use ours! Nerf Rival bullets (yellow round bullets) are not allowed in our battles!
How much space is required for a Nerf Party?
A Nerf Party for about 20 participants will require a minimum space of about the size of a tennis court - about 80 ft x 40 ft. Larger groups require larger space.
My son is turning 7 but many of the participants are 5 and 6 yr. old's, can the younger ones still participate?
We changed our minimum age to 7 yrs old simply because kids under the age of 7 had a difficult time pulling back and cocking the spring loaded Nerf Guns. If your event includes kids under the age of 7 we recommend having some parents out on the battlefield assisting their youngsters loading the Nerf Guns!
