Guard Up, located in Burlington, Massachusetts offers a variety of  Sword and NERF™ Themed Birthday Parties and Adventures.  Have something different in mind?  Let us know and our Game Designers and Plot Writers can cook something up!




Knights Parties or Princess Parties

Step back in time… with your friends and do battle like the noble warriors of times past. A fully costumed instructor will lead your party, dressed as a warrior from either medieval England or a fantasy realm from your favorite book. Kids are encouraged to bring & wear costumes too, as they play fun games like Defend the Bridge, Archer on the Mountain, Next Warrior, and more.



Pirate Birthday Parties

Shiver Me Timbers! Arrrgh, Matey. X marks the spot in this wild, high seas adventure. Be led through a series of challenges by a costumed instructor. You and your mates should feel free to dress and talk like pirates too. Fun and Adventure await with games of Treasure Hunting, Pirate Ship Attack, and more.


Space Birthday Parties

3-2-1 Blast Off! Battle your way through the stars! All your friends can help you out in games like Space Station Attack and Planetary Exploration. Led by a costumed instructor, our Space Saber or Space Blaster wielding Galactic Knights experience all the peril and adventure this galaxy has to offer.  Foam swords, Nerf Blasters, or Lazer Tag Blasters provided.


Points & Powers Birthday Parties

Why have a party when you can have an Adventure? The biggest and best party option at Guard Up is the Points & Powers Birthday Party. Learn the game rules and then take on the role of a brave warrior, wise wizard or fearless healer. Then go forth into a customized adventure in a live action story. Costumed instructors provide monsters or brigands to fight, villagers to rescue, and everything else you’ll encounter. Scenery and props transport you to underground lairs, castle halls, haunted graveyards, or wherever the story takes you. The ending is unknown because you decide the outcome!
