What age can you do Archery from?

We offer Extreme Archery for age 13 and up. And we have amazing Kids Archery Games for ages 7-12 for family fun or the best party ever!

Is it safe?

Absolutely! Our arrows are specially designed foam-tipped arrows manufactured for these games. Unlike paintball, it doesn’t hurt! There is no mess! All you will feel is a foam arrow bounce off you. Anyone can play and enjoy it! Participants wear facemasks and arm guards. It’s an unbelievably fun, safe activity!

Can I bring my own equipment?

We provide all the equipment. Bows and arrows from outside can’t be used. You need to bring clean, regular running shoes (no cleats) to change into and track pants. You can bring your own facemask if you wish. All our equipment is thoroughly checked and cleaned before each use. If you require a shower, bring a towel!

How long is the session?

Our sessions last one hour. You should aim to arrive 20 minutes before your booking at the latest, this will give you time to change, sign a waiver, and get 10 minutes practice and instruction in our training court. You’ll be taught how to hold the bow, load the arrow, shoot, catch and the basic premise of the game.

Does everyone sign a waiver?

Yes, you must do this in order to participate. One waiver is for participation, the other is for photographic permission. Under 16s must have their waivers signed by a parent or guardian.

Can we stay for beers after?

Yes, we have great beer on tap, bottled beer, café, and a stunning mezzanine and bar area for spectating. It’s an amazing place to hang out, enjoy beer and good food.

Where is your free parking?

We have free parking all over! There is some alongside our building on Mazurette – check the hours on the signposts. There are plenty free spaces in front of Party Expert on de l’Acadie (the front of our building). It’s our designated parking space – you won’t be towed. There are more spaces in front of our neighbours Chez Cora on de l’Acadie. And 5,000 spaces across the road at Marché Central. It’s probably the easiest place to park in Montreal.

Can we get private group bookings or is it open to anyone?

Private group bookings are possible. There’s a minimum 8 players. Sometimes other individuals or small groups will be put into the same time slot. It can make for more targets and action! We can also custom build a bigger event for you, with a ton of other great activities!
