Frequently Asked Questions

What the F$@! is Axe Throwing?!

Did you Axe us a question?

What is Axe Throwing?

 Axe throwing is one of the fastest growing sports in the country, and you can drink beer while you do it! Seriously though, it is a high energy competition that pits you against your friends and family in round robin and single elimination formats. Scoring is gauged by your ability to get a sharp axe stuck in a painted target repeatedly to win the event. Like darts, but actually fun. We follow NATF ( National Axe Throwing Federation) scoring rules in both group events and league competition

Is it safe?

 Of course it is! Maybe it doesn’t look it, but Axe throwing , if played properly,  is a safe sport. That being said,  every sport is only as safe as its participants.  When rules are followed, good things usually happen. Listen to your coach and use common sense. 

How old do you have to be?

Participants aged 15-17 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian in order to throw, and the guardian must also sign the participant's waiver. 18 and older must sign their own waivers with valid id. You must be 21 to consume alcohol. ID’s will be checked at the front desk for EVERY PARTICIPANT regardless of age. All patrons must have valid identification or they will be refused entry. NO EXCEPTIONS. Anyone under the age of 21 observed consuming alcohol in the facility will be asked to leave without a refund.

Do you teach us how to throw?

No, we just let you wield sharp objects at will! Of course we teach you how to throw. Every group is assigned a coach for their entire session to teach you all of the ins and outs of Axe throwing. Safety, scoring, throwing and competition rules will all be covered. Our coaches are there for your enjoyment and your safety. Gratuity is appreciated!

Can I bring my own axe?

Sorry, not unless you are in one of our leagues. Personal axes are allowed for league and special events only, as designated by Primitive Axe. We do have an awesome big Axe that you could be lucky enough to try your hand at though!

House axes are available for purchase at our  front desk for league play, but its definitely more fun to have your own!

Do i have to make a reservation?

Groups of 4+ require a reservation. We schedule coaches for each individual group to ensure safety and to provide an environment in which you can relax and enjoy while they keep score and make sure everything goes smoothly.  Groups that book with less than 24 hrs before their arrival time should call in to confirm availability. Groups booked less than 24 hours may be cancelled if a coach is not available, or lanes are not available, even if booking on the website has not been closed out for that time slot. Our staff will reach out via the number provided if any of the above occur as soon as possible to try and reschedule your reservation. 

How much is it?
A 2 hr Axe throwing session is $40pp. Walk -ins are $20 pp during walk in hours. We also matinee and Sunday specials for our less busy timeslots. ( As low as $30pp). Please see our walk-in page for hours and FAQ. Please call our facility to inquire about our matinee and Sunday specials.
Do you Allow Spectators?

No we do not. We do have exclusions for group events. Please contact us for details.

What if I don't have a group?

Singles and groups of up to 4 people are welcome at the facility as walk-ins. It is more fun to play with a group ( 6 or more is ideal, and strongly recommended) , but if you like to fly solo, we are happy to have you! Walk-ins receive safety training and 1-on-1 throwing instruction with one of our well trained coaches. Walk-ins may be paired with other walk-ins in the designated walk-in lanes. Walk-ins are not available on Saturdays. Walk-in pricing is $25pp /per hour when available. 

Do you sell food / alcohol?
We do not sell food or alcohol. Alcohol including beer and wine is permitted in the facility as a BYOB. No hard alcohol. We have several great take out restaurants locally that you can order from and have delivered, or bring their food into the facility. We can put you in touch with catering services or food delivery establishments for your private or corporate events.
What do I wear? Can I rock sandals?

Closed Toed shoes are required to play. NO EXCEPTIONS. Safety first!

Do i tip my axe coach?

Did you have a good time? Then please consider tipping your coaches!  Tips are always appreciated. $5-10 per person, is a good tip, but if your coach was exceptional and your now a professional axe thrower, consider showing them some love!!
