I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you again!  Jack had the absolutely best time at his birthday yesterday.  He loved it.  My family and friends are still talking about it as well.  The adults had as much fun as the kids did.  Multiple children said they wanted to have their future birthday parties there- which as you know, is the ultimate endorsement of how great it was.  Thank you to all the staff for such a memorable event.  You made a six year old boy so very, very happy!  And his 13 yo brother even talked about how cool it was (and 13 yos are not easy to impress. LOL).  You and the guardians are amazing!  I’m sure we will see you all again- either as a guest at someone else’s event, or our own future parties.

Battle monsters, build shelter, and grow crops in order to save the village! Bring your creative minds, because you’re about to step right into a videogame… Foam swords provided.


Sneaky Stealth Party

Shhh… What was that? If you’re the kind of Hero who enjoys stealth missions, this party theme is for you. Unlock the magic door, tip-toe past monsters, and retrieve the package or magical artifact from a beast’s lair… All without stirring a single hair on its head. This thrilling adventure is perfect for young Heroes who aren’t too keen on chaotic battles. However, we can always ramp up the scare-factor for those older Heroes who love a good stealth adventure. Nerf Blasters or Foam swords provided.


Turn your Party into a Custom Adventure:


Points & Powers Party

Themed Birthday PartiesWhy 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.  You design the theme of the party, we make your vision come true. The ending is unknown because you decide the outcome!


Themed Birthday Party Add-On Options:

  • Add a Stilt Monster: Have your hero battle a live 9-foot-tall monster! Your party goers will never forget that time they got to fight a monster on stilts.
  • Castles and Mazes: Add inflatable castles and walls for your hero to defend against the hordes of monsters, or to use as cover during an epic Nerf Battle.
  • Monster or Zombie invasion: Think your Hero can handle more monsters? Add more costumed actors to make the adventure more thrilling for your brave Adventurers.
