What is Archery Tag®? Archery Tag® is played similar to dodgeball with our bows and patented foam-tipped arrows. This exciting, action-packed game offers the ultimate family-friendly experience that engages the everyone. Don’t miss out on Tag…the game you never outgrow!
Archery Tag® Game Play: Two teams, consisting of 5 players each playing opposite one another, are separated by a “safe zone.” Each team also has what we call a “5-Spot Knockout Target.” There are two objectives: 1) to tag the opponents, and 2) to knock out the five discs of the opposing team’s target. You eliminate a player by tagging him or her with an arrow, or by catching his or her arrow. The 5-Spot Targets work to save a “life” of one of the players. A “tagged” player can be called back into the game when a target spot is knocked out or when a teammate catches an arrow.
Is it Safe? Unlike some other sports, the only safety equipment required to play Archery Tag® is a facemask. Players experience virtually no pain when “tagged” with our Archery Tag® arrows. Arrows should be used only with Archery Tag® Bows, and will in no way be used in any other type of bow (compound, recurve, longbow, or crossbow, etc.). Failure to adhere to this rule can result in equipment damage, personal injury, and loss of your Archery Tag® License.
Archery Tag takes place at our indoor range in Elmhurst, Illinois. All the equipment is provided but feel free to bring your own paintball mask. We traditionally host these events on Saturday an Sunday evenings. Visit our events page for open events. Come out and have a blast!
