Nerf Training Camps are to be launched this summer by holiday company Haven and Hasbro, partnered through leisure operator Rocafella Leisure.
The Nerf Training Camps, which are being held in the UK for the first time, will take place in 31 holiday parks, taking guests on an exhilarating, energetic and entertaining competitive adventure.
The event is a dynamic two-team game, combining the buzz and play of paintball with the speed and agility of basketball. Each player, equipped with a Nerf blaster and safety goggles, will compete to score points by getting the ball into the opponent’s net without being struck by the opposition. The gameplay space will feature inflatable obstacles that players can use to duck and dive around to avoid rival darts, rounds and discs.
Simon Price, operations director for Activities & Leisure, Entertainment and Retail at Haven, said: “We are thrilled to introduce the high-energy Nerf Training Camp to Haven this May for our guests. We pride ourselves on our diverse and interactive range of park activities that make for many fond, long-lasting memories, and we look forward to seeing players of all ages battle it out for victory.”
The activity will run with four to 16 players, and in four rounds of four minutes – with a bonus round at the end of the match. Up to eight players at one time can come together and strategise to create the perfect, winning gameplan before taking it to the field in pursuit of Nerf Training Camp competition glory.
Brian Ward, chief operating officer for Rocafella Leisure, said: “Nerf Training Camp, exclusive to Haven holiday parks, will provide tremendous fun for children and adults alike. Nerf is renowned for its engaging play and energetic performance, and we are extremely excited to bring the iconic Nerf blaster in a collaborative, fun-for-all game to Haven.”
He added: “This marks the first of many projects earmarked in our newly formed partnership with Haven to deliver Hasbro branded leisure activity across their parks, inspired by our inaugural Nerf Action Xperience entertainment centre opening in Manchester later this summer.”
