Battle Zone Archery

Battle Zone Archery is the next big thing in combat sports. Combining the mayhem and exhilaration of paintball with the fun of dodgeball, and requiring the skills of archery, this is a really exciting experience. Have your very own Hunger Games!

Two teams are pitted against each other across a purpose built field layout with a referee. Each team has up to 5 specially designed bunkers, 5 target cones are placed in front of each bunker. If you get hit by an opponent's arrow you're out, unless a team mate catches an arrow headed for them, in which case you can be resurrected. Points are awarded for each eliminated player and for hitting the cones. The layouts and game scenarios are switched around, and a range of barriers strategically placed across the area of play as part of each battle. The session lasts an hour and in that time you'll play several games, such as Battle Zone, Archery Dodge, Last man standing and the Kamikaze run.

All equipment is provided, included a protective face helmet. The bows are easy to use, and the arrows are designed to absorb the impact meaning the whole experience is less painful and messy than paintball, but just as competitive and just as much fun!

With a location close to Dublin city centre, Battle Zone Archery is a great addition to your weekend away. With no need for an expensive and time consuming transfer to an out of town paintball field, you can easily fit this in alongside other things that you can do in the same place, such as Bubble Football, Binocular Football or an Old School Sports Day.

It's a race against time as you find the clues, solve the puzzle and try to break out of the room. This is a fun and exciting activity where you and your mates will need to work together. With the clock ticking down, have you got what it takes to escape? It's a bit like the Crystal Maze, the Cube and Cluedo all rolled into one.

There are 4 puzzle rooms, with each taking between 2-4, 2-6, or 2-8 depending on the scenario. In total groups of up to 25 can all take part at once. You get an hour of play time in which you need to manipulate objects to find clues and solve the puzzles. If you work everything out before the time runs out, you escape the room and win the game. You'll be given hints if you get stuck, and you don't need any special skills to play.

Each room has a unique scenario. Will your team be asked to investigate what happened to Emma Kane in a tiny, mystery room. Dare you follow in the footsteps of those detectives who have left this cold case unsolved? Will you be asked to get hold of the Philosophers' Stone where every sin is an illusion of a virtue that guides you through? Can you break out of your jail - nobody is innocent! Can you balance the boxes by blocking your body and unblocking your brain to break out? Whatever your team is asked to do you'll need all your creative energy to work it out.

This is something really different to try, and we guarantee it will give everyone loads to talk about.

Local Tips

Afternoon Tea!

We all love the idea of afternoon tea at the moment, it s a real girlie hang out for the afternoon. If you want to go all posh on it, then head to the Merrion Hotel, Westin, or Gresham and do it in plush surroundings. Alternatively head to Queen of Tarts beside Temple Bar or if you want a complete alternative head to The Fumbally, the coolest hangout cafe in Dub at the moment!

Cocktails

So predictable, but so good!! All the hotels do this, but with a high price tag – head to the likes of The Havana on George's Street for good Tapas and Cocktails, or lots of the bars do early bird specials on cocktails. The buzz at the moment is a pop up cocktail speakeasy called The Blind Pig – there is a secret entrance, a password to get in, brill cocktails and atmosphere! Super cool and hire-able for a private gig!

Shopping

Grafton Street is super cool on a Sat afternoon for a browse and to catch the buskers at work and BT (Brown Thomas) or BT2 is worth a look. If you are here make sure to stroll through Stephen's Green Park and feed the ducks! Down on the other side of the river is Henry Street which has all the top high street names and a really great store called Arnotts which carries all the brand names and is great to browse.

Learn to Irish Dance!

If you're in Ireland why not try something Irish – Irish Ceilí Dancing is just about the best laugh you will have, it's really brilliant fun and will get all the girls laughing and involved. There is a great package where you learn to dance at a place called “The Church” (yes, for real) and afterwards can have a cocktail and some grub at their cool bar!!

Open Top Tour / Viking Splash

Sometimes the girls will want a bit of culture and a great way to see the town and all the main hop spots is to take the bus – there are a couple of open top tours which are good, we always recommend taking one that has a live commentary – far better. The Viking Splash is also a laugh, you get to round Dublin in this amphibious vehicle with Viking hats on, shouting at everyone and the vehicle then enters the water for a splash!!
