I took my son to DARK ARMIES for his birthday party and I can't get him to calm down now. He and his friends had a wonderful time. When I made the reservation, it seemed as if there were lots of guidelnes to follow but after experiencing the process, I understand. The check in process seemed highly professional but geared to emphasize the safety of the customers. I told the staff that none of these kids had ever played before and they explained that the training will cover all the questions and encouraged me to attend the training even though I was not participating. The trainer did exactly that and the trainer would not let us leave the class until all of our questions were answered. The game started on time and everything promised was delivered. I felt that my son was placed in most capable hands from the moment we entered. My son said he and his friend had the times of their lives. They were a little messy when they finished but to see him enjoy himself so much is fantastic. I was very surprised that they had been here for 17 years. We had 10 players in our party and the fee was about $25 per person. It included just about everything needed to play. Thats only $12.50 per hour and seemed very reasonable. I don't know where I can entertain a group of teenagers for any thing close to that and know they are supervised the entire time. We will certainly return!!! ... and suggest anyone with a sense of adventure give it a try.
