The Foam Dart Wars have been a tradition at the West Coast Haunters Convention as a fun way for vendors and attendees to blow off steam after a long day of vending and haunting. This year, the WCHC and Haunted Nightmare at the Nile are coordinating the Foam Dart Wars into a twice daily activity in a designated location on the tradeshow floor and at designated times each day. Please follow these guidelines to ensure the Foam Dart Wars are fun for you and those around you.
- Foam Dart Wars will only take place in the Foam Dart War Zone (FDWZ) along the first vendor row (from Gantom Lighting to the Skull Shoppe).
- Foam Dart Wars will start at 10:30 AM and 4:30 PM on Friday, Saturday, and 10:30 AM on Sunday, and will last about 5 minutes.
- Adults only, please! Children are not encouraged to participate.
- You may only use non-modified NERF foam dart guns. (Please have your weapon checked at the Foam Dart Wars Info Booth near the entrance to the tradeshow floor.)
- Please respect the vendor booths in the FDWZ and avoid damaging the booths or merchandise. The West Coast Haunters Convention, Haunted Nightmare and the DoubleTree by Hilton will not be held responsible for any damage.
- Pick up your foam darts. Any remaining foam darts will be collected and resold at the FDWZ Info Booth.
- Anyone caught firing a foam dart weapon outside of the designated hours and outside the FDWZ will be encouraged to make a $1 donation to the WCHC charity.
- Use common sense and have fun!
