Count-Down To A Fantastic Fortnite Party

T-minus 4 weeks. Board The Battle Bus

The first step to a fun-filled Battle Royale inspired party is to send out party invites so your child and their buddies can “hop on the battle bus”. Choose a location and time and invite your child's friends to join the fun on the “island” also known as your backyard. 

Specify the time and date for the party-goers to “skydive” and glide into your rendezvous. 

If you choose your house or a nearby park to have the party this can be relatively inexpensive compared to family entertainment centres or theme parks. The other bonus is that your children just play with the kids they know. 

You can order customised invites from companies like Etsy, Amazon, or eBay, which often offer instant downloads that you then simply print yourself. You can also get loads of ideas from Pinterest. Or you can download a party invite template from us.



Brilliant! Best Party Ever! Everything was so organised and efficient. The kids (and adults) had so much fun, it was the easiest party to organise and the kids seriously didn't come near us. - Michelle, QLD


T-minus 3 weeks. Watch Out For The Encroaching Storm Let the Games Begin! 

Banish boring parties and book a laser tag rental so your little gamers can save the world, or at least your backyard. Plan to play fun games like “Battle Royale”. The kids can play in squads or solo. Just like in the video game the live version gradually forces the combatants into an ever-shrinking playing field.  

Because you rent for Saturday and get Sunday free, the fun can last as long as you like.  Invite the family over for Saturday for a BBQ, then host the birthday party on Sunday to have fun all weekend long. Or have the gamers go into the evening with a sleepover party!



THE BOYS HAD A BLAST Professional, friendly and attentive service at all stages of the process. The boys had a blast!!! - Erin from Brisbane

T-minus 2 weeks. Get Building! Create Your Own Spawn Island

Prepare your battlefield and decorate your party area with forts or boxes and ramps. Think Minecraft meets DIY battlefield. Okay, so while you might not really be able to build wooden ramps and buildings in the garden, you can deck it out with camo nets or camo bunting or inflatables


Laser Tag is high-tech "hide and seek" so the players will need some items to hide behind. A good rule of thumb is that if you have 10 gamers playing at once then you need at least 10 things to hide behind. If you are printing out your own decorations or signs then use an army-style stencil font for the text, I've found that "Burbank Condensed" or "Luckiest Guy" ( a Google font) work well. Using signage that fits in with the Fortnite theme is effective at setting out the different areas of the house and backyard for eating, playing, etc. 

HINT: You might also want to add in a party pinata, such as a Llama Pinata. 

You might consider also making inviting the kids to wear costumes, just like their favourite skins in the video game. But be prepared, you might end up seeing a lot of Tomato Heads and Galactic Ninjas.


THE KIDS HAD A BLAST Very professional and easy to hire. The delivery and return was simple. I was well informed all the way. The equipment was in good condition. Importantly, the kids has a blast. - Paul from NSW

No party is complete without party food and with a Fortnite theme, the options are endless. While professional catering can be expensive if you have a party at home you can save a lot. Be on the lookout for bargain buys for napkins, disposable cups, and plates. At Laser Tag in a Box, we also sell Camo Plate Sets. It makes the day of your event less stressful if you can prepare many items beforehand. Consider making, or buying, battle cupcakes a week before and freezing them until party day. Say you are inviting 16 kids, make 16 cupcakes and place them out in the shape of the birthday boy or girl's age. Then just simply get some cupcakes stickers for decorations, such as silhouettes or forts or troopers.

A two-tier made-to-order birthday cake can cost upwards of $200. So making your own can certainly save you. There is no harm in buying a cake mix or sponge slab cake from a store then decorating it. Llama Cakes are in. Voila! You have Fortnite fort cake. For your beverages, consider getting small and large potions, oh I mean "boost juices"!

Party Launch! Emote!

With the final arrangements in place, your little gamers will have a party to remember. 

This is your little munchkin’s big day. With their friends, being ninjas or outlanders, everyone will enjoy the sweet treats and fun laser games making it will be a birthday party they will never forget. 

During the party as well as playing the laser tag games you might want to consider running a dance challenge competition!

Floss like a boss! 

Get each gamer to strut their stuff – their best emote – whether it is the default Fortnite dance or flossing or even the “ride the pony” dance!  

At the end of the party consider also handing out themed loot bags. 

You can buy some gold chocolate coins for V-bucks. For a fun take-home memento how about some dog tags.  This is a great way to finish up your Fortnite-themed birthday party.
