Archery Tag is a fun, fast-paced outdoor activity that combines elements of archery and dodgeball.

Archery Tag is perfect for kids and adults alike. It requires teamwork, strategy, and quick reflexes, making it an exciting activity for groups and events.

What is Archery Tag?


Having checked-in at the Go Ape cabin ahead of your session, your fun-filled hour begins with issuing face masks and arm guards before a short safety brief and splitting into teams.

The battlefield comprises of two halves, one for each team, and inflatable barricades to seek cover from the barrage of arrow fire. Every player begins with a bow, but each battle begins with a race to gather foam tipped arrows from the centre of the battlefield.

Like a game of dodgeball, the aim of the game is to eliminate your opponents by tagging them with an arrow, all whilst not getting shot yourself. Lone wolves don’t get very far in this game, you’ll need to work together and strategize to take down your opponent.

The winners are the team that eliminates every member of the opposing team.

The minimum booking size is 10 players, which guarantees a session exclusively for your group. Groups of 12 or fewer are split into two teams. Groups of over twelve are split into 3-5 teams, depending on size, and do battle in a round-robin format.

Great fun for adults or children, the minimum age for players is 8 years old. Children under the age of 16 require supervision from an adult aged 18 or over at a ratio of one adult to eight children. The adult doesn’t need to participate, but why miss out on the fun?!

Archery Tag is the perfect activity for team days out with your work tribe or sports club. It also makes a great birthday party, and a super experience for scouts and youth clubs. Remember to add a high ropes experience to your visit for a truly adventurous experience.
