This is the ultimate adventure for those of you looking to step at least a toe outside of your comfort zone. Axe throwing is a new popular sport to the United States and is growing with each passing month. Think of darts or bowling with real life sharp axes. You hurl these axes in lanes towards wooden targets and try to hit the bulls eye. There are many games to play once you get the hang of sinking the axe into the wood.
We play regulation league games, tic tac toe, 21, Bullseye, knock out and even yahtzee with our games.
Yes. Throwing axes is similar to other target sports. Participants follow the instructions and safety rules explained by our Axe Masters and use common sense, throwing an axe is safe. Our experienced and highly trained staff are in the throwing arena with you at all times and monitor your throws for safety and guide you through the entire process. Only participants that have gone through our safety briefing and signed a waiver are allowed to enter the throwing arena. This includes people just wanting to watch the axe throwing. There is no passing of axes between players and players must follow specific instructions from their axe master.
Everyone throwing axes and watching will be required to sign the waiver provided. Each new participant will be required to go through a safety briefing with one of our Axe Masters.
Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign the waiver for them.
Age: We do not have a age minimum in place. However, we reserve the right to refuse service for anyone not acting mature enough to respect the safety rules. You must be 16+ to throw without a legal guardian present (The parent must sign the waiver) and 18+ years old after 8 pm.
Closed toed shoes are required!
*Special events can have this requirement waived but the party host must insure a 1:5 ratio with all party participants.
You may bring your own drinks and food. You can make it at home or bring it from a store, we don't care but we are usually hungry from throwing axes so plan accordingly. Just kidding, or am I?
We will have light snacks and non alcoholic beverages for purchase nat our front desk. If you want a full meal while you are here we can have food delivered from one of the many local establishments in our Valley Park area. At your cost of course.
Beer and wine are allowed but NO hard alcohol. We would prefer you bring cans or plastic cups if possible since our floor is concrete. We just made your day didn't we? Be safe my friends.
Note: Your time starts once the Axe Master takes you back to the lane. If your party arrives late to your reservation we will try to accommodate assuming no one has the lane right behind your reservation. However, if the lane is booked behind your party you might loose some of your axe throwing time for arriving late.
We recommend your initial session be a 2 hour experience. We will provide everything you need to throw axes. However, closed toe shoes are REQUIRED.
Please arrive to your scheduled time 15-20 minutes prior for your safety briefing and axe throwing technique class.
Rates: $35.00/person for 2 hours OR $20.00/person for 1 Hour.

General Rules are:

2. We ask that you stay in the safety areas unless you are actively throwing.
3. One yellow handled axe per target.
4. No one throws anything if someone is in the lane.
5. Axes do not go on counters or to the bathroom. (Yes, we have to say that because it has happened) Which brings us to rule 6.
6. If we have to add a new rule because of you, we will name it after you. That is not a challenge, that is a REAL threat! :)
7. We want everyone to have fun so if there is anything we can do to make your visit more fun please let us know.
