There’s NERF-ing better than this. The new NERF Action Xperience is coming to Manchester’s Trafford Palazzo (just a short drive from Leeds) this September, with thematic battlegrounds, training activities (cue tension-building Rocky soundtrack) and a variety of sports games to burn off some of that competitive energy. The giant indoor arena promises an exhilarating experience with endless adventures and challenges to get stuck into. Plus, after all the fun, you can swing by the on-site restaurant Archie’s for a bite to eat while you reassess your battle plans and plot some future adventures. Grab a NERF blaster and round up the team, your mission awaits.

What can I expect at NERF Action Xperience?
Taking over 35,000 square feet in Trafford Palazzo, Manchester will be the first city in the UK to experience this thrilling action-packed playground for all ages. NERF is treating fans to a wonderland of indoor activities, with five different zones where you can face off against foes (aka friends and family), brush up on your sharpshooter skills and get your blood-pumping playing all sorts of high-energy sports – with names like Velocity Volley, Basketball Blitz and Crazy Climb, you know this is not your average P.E-at-school, friendlies-on-the-field kinda games.
You might want to brush up on your favourite action flicks beforehand because this is your chance to channel your inner Ethan Hunt with his arm-slicing runs and mission (impossible) plans, or John Wick with his slick-as-hell shootout skills or even Uma Thurman’s The Bride if you’re looking for a bit of ruthless revenge on a brother who stole the remote one too many times. There are three immersive arenas to put your skills to the test; wielding NERF blasters and outwitting opponents on themed battlegrounds. If you’re in dire need of an adrenaline fix, this should hit the spot.
Once you’ve had a slice of NERF heaven you’re probably gonna be peckish. Pink-drenched diner Archie’s is at hand, serving up a delicious American-inspired menu that includes burgers, shakes, and waffles. Everything you need for a bit of refuelling. The UK’s first NERF-dedicated retail store will also be there for any NERF needs, the perfect place to pick up a memento of the experience. So there you have it, a fun-filled day out completely sorted, the only thing left is to grab tickets.
