How To Find The Right Venue For NERF Parties


Finding a Venue – The foundation of your NERF party is going to be finding a venue to have it. If you are the lucky owner of a sweet backyard or some land, that’s a great start! You want to make sure to have some flat ground that is free of too many obstacles like branches, long grass etc. There isn’t a set rule for how much space you need but you certainly want to have some space to set up bunkers and let kids run around – try to have at least 500-600 sq. ft. to start. 

We find that indoor spaces are super easy and popular, and work for all weather types. The absolute best place to run a NERF party is in a gymnasium. It has enough space, it has a smooth and safe floor, and typically has bathrooms and even some other facilities that might be needed. So our focus on providing ideas for places to book start with gyms. Churches, community centers, and even some schools rent these out. 

That said, you might be looking for something outside or FREE, and we have some parks included too. Note that some venues and parks will require pre-booking, and some might require some insurance or additional waivers signed. 

If you need equipment keep us in mind, we are a leader nationally in affordable NERF rentals and can provide quality equipment, expertise, and even COIs and more.
