You AXED the important questions, and we put all the answers together for you in one, convenient place.
What’s this axe throwing thing about, anyway?
Besides being the coolest thing ever, axe throwing is an individual sport played with and against other players. Players throw hatchets at targets marked with a bullseye and score points based on where their hatchet sticks on the target.
Is there an age requirement?
Yep. All players must be 13 years old or older to participate. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Do we have to sign a waiver?
Anything cool requires signing a waiver, right? So yes, all players must sign a waiver and minors need an adult’s signature as well.
Is axe throwing safe?
This is not a “here, hold my beer” moment. Our trained coaches brief you on safety procedures and how to properly throw an axe before your session. Plus, a coach will be with you and your group at all times. As with any sport, there is always some risk, but safety is our #1 priority and we are focused 110% on providing a safe, fun environment for everyone.
Asking for a friend…. What happens if someone gets a little too rowdy?
Our coaches and staff are trained to monitor all players and if, by chance, you (ahem, your friend) are not following all safety procedures, you may be asked to leave. You will not receive a refund. Bottom line, don’t make us have to ask you to leave because you’re being an AXE.
Is axe throwing hard?
Nope, not at all. With a bit of coaching, anyone of any age, strength, or gender can become a fantAXEtic axe thrower.
How do reservations work?
Um, you pick a day and time you would like to come in, secure that spot with a deposit, and boom, you’re reserved.
Do I need to make a reservation?
Yes and no, but really yes. We do allow walk-ins, but we can’t guarantee you will get play time. Then there might be tears and we don’t want that. So, reservations are best and strongly encouraged, especially for groups of 4 or more.
What is your cancellation policy?
We aren’t sure what’s more important than axe throwing, but if you have to cancel and want your money back, you have to cancel 2 weeks prior to your scheduled event. We do understand things happen unexpectedly and we aren’t complete AXEholes, so cancellations after the 2-week window can only be transferred to another date and time.
What happens if I make a reservation and someone in my group flakes on the day of?
You are responsible for the full remaining balance due for the number of players you originally booked. It will be up to you if you want to send your “friend” a text with how much they owe you. Or you can replace them with a new, reliable friend.
I suck at planning; can I just walk in?
Sure. While we try to accommodate all walk-ins, they are based on a first come, first serve basis and we cannot guarantee play time if we are busy. We strongly recommend making a reservation, especially for groups of 4 or more to have the best AXEperience possible. It’s also a good idea to call ahead for availability, especially during peak hours and on weekends.
I don’t have a lot of friends; do I need a minimum to throw or make a reservation?
Nope and this is a great way to meet friends! Singles and smaller groups will share a lane with other singles/smaller groups. You might also want to check out our leagues as another way to meet more awesome people!
Do you allow spectators?
Yes and no. We are an axe throwing facility that happens to serve alcohol. We are not a bar for patrons to hang out and watch axe throwing. However, if you have someone in your group who just wants to cheer you on (lame) while you throw axes, we allow them to be in your designated area while you play. We reserve the right to limit the number of spectators with your group.
Can I bring my children?
Noooo, ok kind of. We do not allow children under the age of 13 inside our facility and they must remain in your designated area (if they are not throwing) at all times. We reserve the right to limit the number of children not throwing to be with your group.
What type of clothes should I wear?
We suggest wearing clothes you are comfortable in and able to move around in easily. Although, chicks who want to wear their wedding/prom dress to throw in are pretty freaking awesome! Or, if you come in with a suit and tie, we just ask that you loosen your tie, relAXE, and have a great time!
Can I wear my cute, strappy sandals or flip-flops?
While we do appreciate a fresh pedicure, you gotta keep those toes hidden. Close-toed shoes are required for all players. We do offer shoes-of-shame rentals, but they are just that, shameful and won’t compliment your outfit very well.
Do you serve food and drinks? I get hangry when I’m hungry.
Sort of. We have snacky-type food (snickers for desperate times) and bottled/canned beer, sodas, juice, Gatorade, energy drinks, water, etc. for sale. We don’t have hard liquor because we can’t have your AXE getting wasted on our watch.
Can I bring my own food and drinks in?
Yes, to food. NO to any type of alcohol. Yes, to drinks, but ONLY if it is included with a catered-in meal. We do not allow outside drinks from fast-food-type places or from home.
Can I bring my own axe?
Yes and no. All players, not in a league, must use the equipment we provide for every-day axe throwing. League members may bring their own axe as long as it meets all league specifications and has been inspected for safety and approved by an AXEpert staff member.
Do you sell hatchets/axes?
Yep, sure do. We encourage those who intend to join a league or be frequent players to purchase their own axe. The more comfortable you feel with an axe, the better you will hone in on your skill. Plus, who doesn’t want to have their own axe to pimp that mother out?
How do the mobile units work?
Basically, we bring the axe throwing AXEperience to you. Get all the details HERE.
I’m an AXEmaster, how do I prove my worthiness?
You must join a league, challenge all your enemies, and battle to the death…. wait, we were thinking of Game of Thrones. We offer leagues, tournaments, and competitions for those of you who thrive on competing against yourself and others. Find out more HERE.
