UPDATE: Dart Quest is has closed down temporarily for rebranding and upgrades. We will let you know when they are back up and running.
Within the past month, the popular Nerf gun battlefield Dart Warz was seized by the state and closed down. To the surprise of many, there has been another alternative in Wichita that opened up this past summer. Those people looking for a viable place to take your kids for some same harmless Nerf gun fun, this 5,000-square-foot venue has you covered. Lets walk you through what to expect at Dart Quest.
2626 S Rock Road
Wichita, KS 67210
Thursday – Friday: 3:45pm – 10pm
Saturday: 11am – 10pm
Sunday: 12pm – 8pm
If you’re familiar with Dart Warz, you should find yourself pretty comfortable at Dart Quest. It’s a similar pricing model. It cost $10 to play. There are also packages available to rent the facility for parties. These packages can range anywhere from $200-350 and last anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 hours. There are lots of birthday parties that take place there on the weekends.
The $10 walk-in price includes a basic single-shot blaster but you can upgrade your Nerf gun for $2-8. It also includes 60 minutes of arena time and access to their arcade.
There are specials too. For instance, every Thursday at Dart Quest is “After School Thursdays“. Kids of all ages can come to the facility and play as much nerf battles and arcade as they want! Everyone will be fed pizza/drinks and allowed to use any blasters they choose. Each participant will need $15.00 (includes everything & tax).
As for the arena itself, it is a little smaller than what you remember from Dart Warz. The nice part about it though is the layout is changed every so often and the quality of the material is sturdier. It was noted that Dart Quest is catered more towards kids 5-12 years of age. I remember taking my nieces to Dart Warz and they would get owned by the teenagers. Having a smaller and easier place for the younger kids to roam and enjoy themselves is nice.
I spoke with one of the owners of Dart Quest and there are plans to expand. They own the building next door and hope to soon open that up to add virtual reality, a cafe and possibly a larger arena.
In the meantime, it’s business as usual for them. I’ll be taking the kids out there soon to get a more in-depth look at Dart Quest. Let the kids play in the arena while I enjoy some Skee-Ball. If you’ve gone before, please post your comments below. I’d love to read them!
