Can't wait too. Gotta figure out if we can use modded blasters.

I'll be pretty interested to see if this gets off the ground. The biggest roadblock in my mind is the fact that Nerf is a brand name-- I'm not sure how Hasbro will feel about someone advertising themselves as a "Nerf arena." I checked out their twitter page and it's referred to, at least once, as an issue, with them using the word "foamdart" until they got permission to use "Nerf." So maybe it already happened.

I admit, though, this is a tantalizing prospect.

Here's the news story:

Business has a shot at success
February 21, 2010|Retail Watch | Scanning the Storefronts

Air rifles send projectiles flying across the room at high velocity and people--at least some--are dressed in commando attire as they return fire and battle it out for bragging rights.

Participants are doing what some may call ''getting their gun off,'' but to the lay folks it's just some of the fun at the new indoor airsoft and Nerf arena called The Grid Code at 1801 Union Blvd. in Allentown.

Owner Leland Fraser got the idea for the facility years ago from his then-13-year-old son, who wanted a place where he and his friends could play with their Nerf guns.

After finding few options for the Nerf battle, Fraser decided to construct one on his own. Now, years later, the place is a reality.

The Grid Code includes a more-than 8,500-square-foot arena decorated like a military training course of tires, camouflage, wooden barricades and old refrigerator boxes.

Players can rent Nerf guns, air rifles and protective gear. Participants are given 30 minutes per game to play with friends or foes in contests that range from an all-out free-for-all to controlled contests.

The Grid Code holds birthday parties, tournaments and summer leagues. The place complements the east Allentown neighborhood, which is turning into something of a sports mecca thanks to Coca-Cola Park, Pig Pen Sports Bar, and now The Grid Code. We just need a skate park or another outdoor venue and then we'll be all set.

I emailed the owner. I'm going to find out if they'll let us use modified nerf guns. I can't imagine they would not if they allow airsoft guns. If that is the case I will be hosting a war there sometime this year without a doubt.

Jedi - I seriously doubt Nerf would have any problem with it seeing as it could nothing but boost their sales. I know we don't make money, but if we haven't seen any kind of backlash for using the word Nerf.

I am very excited about this as well. This would be well worth the drive for me for a pretty outstanding indoor location! Excellent find.

We don't have military tactics or specialized training. We're fucking kids playing with plastic guns trying to tag each other.

Words cannot contain my excitement. Not sure how far off Allentown is from where I'm from... maybe SEPTA can get me there?
