GENERAL RULES AND INFO

Axe Throwing is the fastest growing sport in the USA and can be a fun activity for a date, party or family activity. And, of course, it’s a great way to relieve some stress. You don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy it, either. It’s often described as a combination of darts and horseshoes with more dramatic results. Participants take turns throwing a 2 pound axe at a wooden target 12 feet away. The winner being the one who scores the most points or hits closest to the bull’s-eye. 

Of course! Our experienced Axe Coaches will teach you how to safely throw, play a variety of axe-throwing games and provide an amazing experience.

Absolutely – your safety is our #1 priority! An Axe Coach will be assigned to your group to provide safety instructions, demonstrate proper throwing techniques and help ensure that your group has an amazing experience.

For your safety, closed toed shoes are a MUST. Open-toed shoes, flip-flops and sandals are not allowed.

Our insurance requires guests to be 10 years or older. Guests between the age of 10 and 15 will require one parent or guardian 18 years or older to be present. Kids age 16-18 will be allowed onsite without an adult present as long as the parent completes the online waiver in advance.

Yes, all guests are required to sign a waiver, preferably before arrival. An email link to the waiver is sent to the group representative upon booking. Guests under the age of 18 will require a parent or guardian signature.

PLAN TO ARRIVE 10-15 MINUTES EARLY. Arriving late may cut into your throwing time.

We allow walk-ins but, depending on how busy we are, a lane may not be available. A reservation is HIGHLY recommended and the only way we can guarantee a throwing time.

The cost is $43 per person + tax for a 90 minute axe-throwing session and $35 per person for a 60-minutes session. Payment is made when reservations are booked. For groups of 25 or more, please contact us to arrange your special event.
