The Only Place to Play Archery Tag in the Northeast

Apr 24, 2018

Have you heard of Archery Tag? It’s an outdoor, action-packed game that’s similar to dodgeball, but played with bows and foam-tipped arrows. If this sounds like a fun activity that you’d like to try with the family, then you’ve come to the right place, because Skytop is the only place to play Archery Tag in the Northeast.

How do you play?

Your group will be split into two teams. Each team battles to be the first team to knock out all the centers of their opposing team’s 5-spot target. Inflatable bunkers on both sides of the field add to the challenge of the game as players try to tag other players out with the arrows.

The game ends in one of three ways:

  1. All of an opposing team’s members have been tagged out
  2. All the 5-spots have been eliminated on an opponent’s target
  3. Time’s up! If the game ends because the time frame has expired, then the team with the least amount of center spots knocked out wins.

Is it safe?

A game with bows and arrows might sound a little too similar to The Hunger Games, but our patented “non-lethal” foam-tipped arrows look like big marshmallows! Additionally, the bunkers used to take cover from the opposing team are inflatable.

We adhere to strict guidelines in order to ensure this is a safe, family-friendly activity. Archery Tag® Arrows are only permitted to be used with a traditional-style bow with a maximum of 28-pound draw weight or lighter, and will in no way be used in any other type of bow (compound bow, crossbow, etc.). Failure to adhere to these rules can result in equipment damage and/or personal injury. Ages 8 and up can play.
