Latest Advertiser The Tag Zone Offering 2 FREE Games If You Mention Us
We’d like to cock our guns, load our Nerf darts up, aim and shoot a huge, kid-friendly welcome to our latest Advertiser: The Tag Zone, located in Olde Burien!
The Tag Zone is housed in the Karuna Arts Yoga Studio, and serves as the ‘yang’ to the studio’s usually calm, yoga-related ‘ying.’ After-hours and on weekends, the zen-like yoga studio at 819 SW 152nd turns into a fun-filled, exciting spot full of kids with Nerf guns, playing “tag” with their safe and harmless “weapons.”
Proprietor Johnny Basco, a former U.S. Army’s 2d Ranger at Ft. Lewis, started the business earlier this year as a way to not only entertain local youth, but to help them develop tricks, tactics and more.
“This is an exciting way to develop tricks and tactics, as well as controlling emotions and stress,” Basco said.
“If you’re looking for a simple way to develop your group strategies and your team work, The Tag Zone will be able to do it while reinforcing communication skills between team members. What could be better than The Tag Zone for your next birthday or your staff get-together?”
And this Saturday (July 17), there will be special “Open Play” Hours during the Olde Burien Block Party, from 2pm – 10pm.
And as a B-Town Blog special, first-time participants will get two FREE games during Open Play – just mention The B-Town Blog for your discount (more info here).
Cost is just $6 per hour, and according to Basco:
“Kids can be dropped off to play a wide variety of controlled and refereed games. While they are here they are divided into teams equally as participants arrive and depart. We make every attempt to keep your kids and possibly their friends together on the same team however on occasion adjustments have to be made in order to keep the teams competitively equal.
Score is not kept but the competition level can still be pretty intense. We do not allow participants to argue with each other and definitely towards any of our referees or loss of one game will occur. “
Here’s more from their website:
At The Tag Zone, participants play an assortment of organized games with safety always on our minds. At The Tag Zone we do not allow the kids to just run around without any direction. All games are supervised with rules constantly being reinforced. We strongly encourage team work in order to play as many games as they can.
Some Points to Remember:
- The minimum age to play at The Tag Zone is 6 years old
- All players below the age of 18 will need a signed parental consent form
- All kids should dress in loose fitting, comfortable clothes
How do you play?
To begin, the group is separated into two teams of equal strength in order to increase the challenge. Then you are provided with an assortment of Nerf Guns, protective glasses and a vest to differentiate you from the other team. The qualified and experienced referee-leader will cater to all your needs, and assure you that all safety measures are respected. They will propose several scenarios with a maximum duration of 5 minutes. The player is out when he’s touched by a dart, ball, missile or arrow. If the player is uncertain that he or she has been touched, the referee will be able to decide.
The Tag Zone is located at 819 SW 152nd, in the Karuna Arts Yoga Studio; the phone number is 206-719-4632.
