Here are some ideas for a Fun Birthday Party in the Huntington area!
It is that time of the year again, your child’s birthday. Your kids are getting to that age where they just don’t love the bouncy houses anymore, and you definitely don’t want a massive horde of young ones running roughshod over your house. Where to take them? What to do? Now you can plan a fun birthday party in downtown Huntington.
Into the void comes our new business – the Battlearium. It is targeted to moms/dads/grandmas/grandpas and kids who like to run and jump and play until they can’t play anymore. The Battlearium opened its doors in the summer of 2019 to do one thing – make birthdays memorable!
Now you can experience it too. Book your party today!
Where the Idea Came From
The idea for the Battlearium came from two birthday parties we had over the years. Our son’s 6th birthday was in an abandoned bank in the Chafin building in downtown on 8th street. Our friend owned the building and let us use it.
We had 40 kids there shooting Nerf guns at each other. There were darts everywhere. The old vault was one of the bases. One father who witnessed it called it Nerftopia!
Our families trip to Cincinnati for our son’s 10th birthday really made us want to open the Battlearium. We saw an article online much like this about this new game called Archery Tag or Archery Dodge ball or something like that at a place called Archery Arena.
We were so intrigued that we decided to make the trip – even though it was going to be three hours!
The birthday was a huge success! The kids loved it and talked about it all the way home. Better yet everyone who played with us loved it. Age doesn’t matter when you’re having fun!
Making It a Family Business
Now we have the Battlearium. Our purpose and great skill is making birthday parties fantastic!
Ideas for a Fun Birthday Party
Here’s how it works. You rent the Battlearium for 1 hour of arena time and 50 minutes in the party room. Your group’s time in the arena is private. That means nobody can walk in off the street and join you.
The game you choose is what your group will play for your full hour in the arena. We play one game for a full hour because we want to make sure you get the most out of your time and not lose any playtime to clean up and set up of a new game. You want to play one game for a full hour because our refs will keep you hoping and moving and dodging.
The referee in charge of your group will lead your team through a series of mini-games. Each game lasts about 5 or 6 minutes. Some of the games include Infection, Domination, VIP, Fortnite, Free for All, Kick the Can, Capture the Flag, Hunger Games, and Jail Break.
Whether you choose Tactical Laser Tag, Foam Dart Battles, or Archery Wars, you and your group will have a blast! Each of our games is different so over the next few years you can plan on having multiple parties at the Battlearium.
As your child grows older, the games get harder and more intense. We will grow with them and continue to make their time in the arena exciting!
Our Goal and Helping You
Our goal is to run you and your group ragged during your time with us and send you out to the party room exhausted and ready for the cake, ice cream, and the drinks you bring. That’s right – you can bring whatever you want to the Battlearium. Our family knows what is like to get stuck at a place and be forced to eat their food. Bring the food you want. Bring the food your kids like. Have it delivered if you want.
Our location is conveniently located in downtown Huntington right at 917 3rd Avenue across from Starbucks in Pullman Square.
