  • Max 20 children

For this party, the staff will organize the kids into two or three teams so that one group is always resting. They will play 2-3 games with the lights on. This will ‘charge’ the balls so they will glow in the dark, and also allow the kids to understand the rules, boundaries and get comfortable with how the game works. Then the staff will turn the lights out and will play 2-3 games in the dark. This rotation will happen 2-3 times so the ball can be ‘charged’ each time. The kids do get very tired and water and bathroom breaks take up time when the lights are on. It is never 100% dark. There are two facility emergency lights that are not able to be turned off and they generate some light that allows the players to see well enough.

Players learn how the guns work, lights go off and the fun begins. It is never 100% dark - there are two facility emergency lights that are not able to be turned off and they generate some light that allows the players to see well enough so as not to run into each other or objects.
