I love this adult night promotion that Dartside has going on for a lot of reasons.

It’s a fun way to extend your date

Do you ever finish your planned date night activities and find that you have extra time left to fill? A lot of couples will hire a babysitter to tend until 10 or 10:30pm and other couples who don’t have kids yet or have kids old enough to be responsible for themselves have no “curfew”. When your date night ends earlier than you thought, you could head to the grocery store or go home and watch a couple episodes of your favorite TV show. But what if instead, you headed to Dartside for an hour of fun?

It’s great exercise

During your hour of play time at Dartside, you’ll find yourself running back and forth, crouching behind walls and doing everything possible to stop yourself from getting hit by nerf darts. Games move a lot faster when you are playing with only adults so you won’t spend much time standing around. We were sweating running back and forth across the arena and our legs were sore the next day from spending so much time hiding behind barricades in a squatting position. Playing at Dartside is a great way to get in an hour of physical activity together and a lot more fun than the gym.

It’s a great group activity

We’re looking forward to putting together a few groups of our friends and family and going to play and compete for an hour after we’ve grabbed dinner or dessert. I love that this is an activity we can all enjoy together and that it brings out the competitive side in everyone. Our group on Saturday included siblings and their spouses and they had a lot of fun running back and forth, shooting at each other with nerf guns. Dartside is a budget friendly and fun activity for groups of any age and size.

We’ve added all of Dartside’s future Adult Nights to our Upcoming Events calendar and will continue to add more if they extend them past May. You’ll find us at Dartside at least one more Saturday night over the next couple of months. Whether you were able to join us on Saturday or not, I hope you’ll support a locally owned business and get out and do something a little fun and different for date night on Saturday nights!

I love this time and this idea because it is often difficult to play during the day when there can be younger kids around. It’s the perfect opportunity for a fun date night activity and the perfect time of night to finish up your date night after dinner and a movie or a lower key activity. We look forward to nerf dart wars with each other over the next few months.

Fun Date  Night Ideas at Dartside

Bring Friends

We had a lot of fun playing dart tag with the other groups at the arena but plan on bringing friends and family with us on most visits in the future. Having people you know to play against and team up with is a lot of fun. We want to plan group dates with my husband's parents, siblings and their spouses as well as a group of our friends. We also want to plan a family outing with my parents and siblings and a couple of their significant others.

Plan to Sweat

The arena has large fans blowing at each end, but when you get running back and forth in an area with a lot of people, it gets hot. I wished that I would have worn lighter weight clothing and maybe even my workout gear. Dart tag is fun and active and a great little workout if you get into it and stay moving for the entire time that you are there. We definitely worked up an appetite and were ready for dinner after our game. The food court is conveniently located directly across from Dartside, where you'll find something for everyone to enjoy.

Get Competitive

We got to Dartside at a really good time, where there was about 20 minutes between one group leaving and another group coming. For about five minutes, it was just the two of us in the arena so we decided to play zombie mode against each other. A little friendly competition can be fun, and you can compete, just the two of you, even if you're in the arena with a lot of other people. Play on separate teams and keep track of how many times you get each other out. At the end of your game, the person with the most hits gets to pick where you go for dinner or dessert.

Work Together

We were joined by another person within a few minutes of starting to play at Dartside. For a while we played two against one, switching off who got to be the one. When we were on the same team, it was fun to strategize and work together as a team to tag the other guy out time and time again. After we were joined by another group of people, it became even more fun to come up with ways that we could work together to tag out the star players on the other teams. If you come with a group or another couple, play on each other's team and work together to help your team win!

Start Planning Your Next Date

Every time Joe and I ended up tagged out and hanging out in the box together until the next game started, I would tell him who I thought we should bring to Dartside with us the next time we go. We had so much fun that I've told at least one person a day about Dartside. It is a unique, fun and laid back game that makes a great date night activity, no matter who you go with. I can't wait to go back with different friends and each of our families and I'm looking forward to when our kids get a little bit older and can go play with us as well.

You can plan family outings, group dates, guys night out, birthday parties, and so much more for your next trip to Dartside. Play for an hour or two or three and make sure that you try a game or two of Survival Tag. We will be back to play more dart tag at least a dozen more times, probably more, because there are so many people who we think it would be fun to play with and we want to introduce them all to this fun place to play!

Let the little kid in you out with this fun date night idea!
