But most of all, it is pure unadulterated fun.

Yes! Have a picnic in the woods! Bring your own food or snacks, pack a cooler! We do not provide any eating utensils. That is the responsibility of the group to bring their own if you’re planning to bring food. Please ensure you clean up after your self, we’re not your mother.

We do have vending machines with drinks and munchies as well.

No, due to our insurance policies, the only axes that can be used are the ones that we provide during the event.

You can have a maximum of 6 people per lane, yup math whiz, that makes it twelve per range!
Now, if it is just a few of you, you may end up throwing axes with another group on the same lane, or even the same range.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early. Your session begins promptly at your reservation time with a brief training. To keep us on schedule and the groups scheduled after you, we’ll have to end your session exactly 1.5 hours after your reservation time, even if you arrive late.

The group size you booked tells us how many throwing lanes and axepert’s your group needs. Please call us before bringing additional throwers to ensure we can accommodate. If we can, you’re good to go!

Yes, starting at the age of 10 and MUST be accompanied by an adult, preferably a parent.

There is a strength restriction. If we feel that a person is not strong enough to throw the axe in a safe manner, then we will not let them throw.

We require that parents or guardians diligently monitor their children at all times. Your child must always be in your immediate care, we do not babysit. Our Axeperts job is to keep everyone safe, not watch your kids. If you cannot watch them, we will give you one warning and then you will be asked to leave. This is for the safety of everyone in the arena, we cannot have kids running in front of axes.

Sorry, but we have already scheduled your Axepert to work, reserved the range for you and refused other axe throwing enthusiasts. We can certainly reschedule for you though.

Yes, if you’re into that sort of thing. People are more than welcome to come and cheer on their friends and family at no additional cost to them. They cannot throw an axe or enter the range though.
