The ultimate Kids vs. Parents Nerf Battle will be held on Saturday, July 9, 2022 from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Sci-Port Discovery Center. Sponsored by Learning Express Toys and Gifts, this will be a Nerf competition like no other. This tournament is a summer program of GamePort; the interactive game-themed exhibit inside Sci-Port that features the history and science behind games which includes video games.
“Nerf competitions are strategic and friendly competition-oriented battles that have been popular for years and now we’re having one at Sci-Port! The Solarium at Sci-Port will be transformed into a Nerf battle zone with targets and areas where players can compete in a timed obstacle course. Individuals and groups are welcome!” said Dianne Clark, Sci-Port Executive Director.
Participants must be 6 years of age or older. Nerf Battle Day admission is $25 per person or $75 for a group of four. Admission includes access to Nerf Battle Arena, general admission to Sci-Port, GamePort, and the IMAX Theater (excludes Adventures of Intrigue). Tickets are available at https://bit.ly/kidsvparents. A small Icee will also be provided to all participants. All Nerf competitors will be eligible for a prize from Cane’s upon completion of a game registration form.
Participants must provide their own non-modified blaster and Sci-Port will supply the darts. Nerf or similar brand blasters will be inspected upon arrival and must be approved prior to use. No water blasters or alternative blasters that do not use standard foam darts will be permitted.
