Parties

Looking for a birthday party for a child? Or a fun grown-up gathering with all your friends?

White Dragon party packages are suitable for all ages from 7+. We’ve hosted everything from a little girl’s ninth birthday with arrows and Nerf to an archery stag do and a mixed-age 60th birthday party for an outdoorsy grandad. Just tell us the age group and occasion when you contact us to book, and we’ll adapt the equipment and coaching style used to suit your group.

Our parties have been delighting children and adults from Essex, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and London for almost a decade. Nine outdoor and indoor party packages are available:

Indoor Parties

Totally weatherproof and ideal for winter occasions. Indoor parties and hosted in our cool castle-themed indoor range. Our head coach Mark is a January baby and knows how hard it can be to find a winter party venue! There’s a heated snug to sit in and tea and coffee are available.

Nerf and Archery Party

Try out archery, wage soft and friendly war on your friends in a pitched Nerf battle, and feel like a king or queen of the realm. We provide a bow, armguard and arrows for each child and give them a thorough safety briefing before we start.

For the first hour, you and your band of merry marauders will get to try out lots of exciting and challenging archery targets and some team games! Our friendly coaches will create a fun atmosphere and keep everyone safe.

We’ll set out tables and chairs inside the ‘castle’, so bring lunch and cake with you for the break.

Once everyone has recharged, we’re on to the Nerf battle! Coaches will set out inflatables and lead the kids through a series of fun games until everyone is tired and grinning. The adults can join in too!

Archery and Laser Tag Party

Imagine yourself as an archer of the past and a warrior of the future in a single day! First you’ll be kitted out with bow, armguard and arrows and taught how to safely shoot, before being released on a series of archery challenges with the help of coaches.

After a break, you’ll be given your own laser tag gun. The archery range will transform into a futuristic battleground, with cover to hide behind as coaches set out fun scenarios for your teams to play together. This party is fast-paced, fun and you’ll be talking about it for weeks!

Once you’re feeling confident, we’ll move on to some games and fun challenges, including our electronic illuminated ‘speed shoot’, which sets you against the clock to shoot 8 targets.

We’ll finish by trying out some Airsoft machine guns – so if there’s a tricky target that escaped your aim earlier on, this is your chance to get your own back on it!

Our Airsoft guns are safe for ages 10+ under our supervision. Please read our Airsoft FAQs if you have any questions.

Outdoor Parties

Outdoor parties are all held in White Dragon’s five acres of lush green ranges and woodlands.

Archery Party

Learn to shoot a bow and arrow alongside your merry band of friends or family with the help of our coaches. You’ll practise on simple circle targets first, before moving on to the woodland shoot to try out your new skills against 3D beasties and monsters!

Archery and Axe Throwing Party

Why limit yourself to one kind of target-thwacking fun when you could have two?

Whether you’ve tried archery or axe throwing before or not, this is a great action-packed party for people who like variety. You’ll start out with target practice using a bow and arrows, then move on to a woodland ‘field shoot’ at 3D targets, before hurling some axes and finally standing together to shoot a group volley of real flaming arrows – an amazing photo opportunity!

Coaches will provide safety briefings and will be on hand with advice and training throughout, so no experience is needed.

Duration: Three hours

Suitable for: Adults, children aged 10+
Price: £45 per person (minimum booking 5 people)

Frequently Asked Questions

How does payment work?
You can reserve your date with a £50 deposit and the full balance won’t be due until a week before the party.

What’s your Covid cancellation policy?
After two years of Covid, we’re all used to needing a bit of flexibility! We offer a book with confidence guarantee, which means that you will receive a full refund if your party is cancelled up to the day before your booking for reasons relating to Covid-19.

What about food?
We don’t provide food onsite – but all our parties include a break for drinks and snacks. Tables will be provided if you would like to bring your own nibbles and a birthday cake! Tea and coffee are always available.

Can I just drop kids off to you?
Although coaches will lead the session, we ask that you do not leave kids unsupervised. As a general rule, at least one adult should stick around during the party. There is a heated snug (for indoor parties) and a covered shelter (for outdoor parties) where spectators can sit in comfort.

What if an attendee is ill?
Please remind your guests not to attend the party if they have a positive covid test, or any coronavirus symptoms.

I’ve got a special theme, can you help?
We’re always happy to help with special requests for making your party that bit more personal and can often find a target to suit your theme. Drop us a line to ask!

Are your venues and activities accessible?
Our indoor venue is fully accessible. The toilets are a short distance from the indoor range (about 1 minute’s walk) and there is parking immediately outside the door.

Our outdoor venues are in natural surroundings and somewhat secluded. A small toilet is available – however, please be aware that the accessible toilet is at the indoor range and cannot be easily reached once you are at our outdoor facilities. The car park is a four-minute walk from the activity zones along an unpaved countryside footpath. The outdoor ranges themselves are comprised of grassland and woodland and may be muddy in places, so please bear this in mind for wheelchairs in winter months.

All activities are inclusive and coaches are trained in helping people of all abilities to shoot, throw axes, discover bushcraft and generally party their hearts out! Regarding archery, the bows we use are suitable for most: as a rule, if you are able to pull a door open, you will be able to pull the bow back and shoot.

If you have any specific questions, concerns or requests, please do contact us to discuss.
