If COVID-19 has you and your family feeling like you’re missing out on things, believe you’re not alone. More and more shutdowns continue to happen, businesses are closing, and people are starting to feel stir crazy in the house.
The good news is that Fortnite parties are still happening in Los Angeles so you and your family can take this opportunity to get outside, enjoy yourself, play some Fortnite, and stay safe with proper COVID-19 social distancing precautions!
The Birthday Party Is Still On!
The party doesn’t have to stop with AirballingLA; everyone is still having a great time scheduling, setting up, and holding Fortnite birthday party events. If you have a child, friend, or family member who loves Fortnite, they will love our real-life Fortnite arena.
We totally understand that many of you have canceled birthday parties, rescheduled, or never even planned anything because you were afraid of the virus and concerned that businesses would close down again.
AirballingLA developed the perfect strategy by bringing the party outside with our Fortnite arena. Getting kids out of cramped and tight spaces and letting them run around outside is the perfect way to play safely while also having a great time with friends and family.
They base the Fornite party on the fictional console game Fortnite. In this game, the party mimics a mode called “Battle Royale.” For this game, everyone is broken into a red and blue team, and they have a certain amount of time to gather resources and weapons before the storm takes over, and they need to run for cover.
Once the storm shrinks, all the players are crammed into a smaller area, and that is when the battle begins. The team that defeats the most players first or reaches the kill target wins.
How Does A Fortnite Birthday Party Work?
So, how does it work? They’ve turned the game Fortnite into a birthday party where everyone participates in a real-life Fortnite battle royale. Everyone will separate into two teams, and they’ll get to choose from a variety of Nerf Guns loaded with soft bullets.
They can also choose chalk bombs and smoke bombs that they can use to throw across at the other team, making it harder for them to find you.
Best of all, the party comes to you because the Fortnite Battle Arenas are portable. AirBallingLA will bring all the equipment to wherever it is you’re having the party; they’ll set it up, they even coach the players through every step of the process. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and watch the battle unfold.
If you’re unsure about exactly what would happen at a Fortnite party, here’s a complete breakdown of each of the steps:
First, they’ll build your Fortnite area using color coated bunkers to tell the two teams apart. From there, they’ll unload the nerf guns throughout the area in a style similar to the most popular game mode, battle royale.
The Fortnite coaches will place supply drops throughout the arena. These care packages contain valuable items such as chalk bombs and smoke bombs. When the battle royale is over, and someone wins a victory royale, the coach will introduce a few mini-games to round out the overall game time.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fortnite Birthday Parties
You might have questions about the party, and if so, that’s okay because AirBallingLA has all the answers!
Q: Is there additional equipment offered to the added players?
A: AirBallingLA offers additional equipment up to 20 players. This includes nerf guns and goggles. Once the player count passes 20, the cost increases to $1,300, which includes double the amount of equipment, paintball barriers, smoke bombs, chalk bombs, Nerf blasters, and another Fortnite coach.
Q: Is there an age limit?
A: It’s recommended that children be no younger than eight years old. Many of the Nerf guns are high impact, which can be painful if someone too young or small gets hit with a bullet.
Q: What kind of location is required for a Fortnite party?
A: AirBallingLA only offers these parties at outdoor park locations because of the need for ventilation. The smoke bombs and chalk bombs create a lot of smoke, so having these parties indoors or in a place with limited airflow is not permitted.
Q: How much space is needed for the party?
A: The company recommends 8000 square feet or the size of two full basketball courts.
Q: Does a host stay for the whole party?
A: Absolutely, you get a Fortnite coach responsible for managing the whole party, and they even set up and break everything down for you. This party is entirely hands-off and turn-key. All you need to do is show up and watch your kids enjoy themselves.
Q: Are there any additional fees?
A: Delivery of the part is free within 20 miles of 90019 in Los Angeles and 92804 in Orange County. AirballingLA charges a 10% gratuity for parties larger than six, and that also includes a 5% credit card fee if you pay using a card.
