Axe Throw​ing

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

  • Question: Is axe throwing safe?
  • Answer:  According to axe throwing statistics worldwide, injuries as a result of axe throwing are extremely rare.  
  • Can I walk in without a reservation?
  • Yes!  We always try our best to accommodate walk ins, but we do recommend reservations to guarantee your spot.  You can book a reservation online, call ahead to get on the schedule and pay when you arrive, or walk in and see if we have availability.  
  • Question: Do you sell alcohol or allow customers to bring in their own alcoholic beverages?
  • Answer: Not yet, but we are looking into insurance requirements and Virginia licensing requirements to potentially serve alcohol in the future.
  • Question: What should I wear?  
  • Answer:  For your safety, we require all participants to wear closed-toed shoes.  No sandals, flip flops, etc.  We have closed-toed shoe covers that we loan at no charge to slip on over your open-toed shoes if you forget to bring closed-toed shoes.  We recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement. 

  • Question:  I don’t want to throw axes, but my friends/family do and I don’t want to miss out on the fun.  Can I come and hang out with my friends/family who are throwing axes?
  • Answer:  Yes, we allow non-throwers to come out and watch while their friends/family throw axes, but due to space constraints, we ask that you limit the number of non-throwers to 2 for groups of less than 8 throwers, and 4 for groups of 9 throwers or more.  
  • Question:  What is the youngest age allowed to throw axes?
  • Answer:  Our insurance allows for children as young as 8 to throw axes.
  • Question: Can I bring my kids who are younger than the minimum throwing age of 8?
  • Answer:  Yes, kids younger than 8 are welcome as long as they do not go in the throwing lanes.   We have benches where the little ones can chill-axe and play, and we have two toy axe throwing targets with velcro axes, so those younger than 10 can join in on the fun at no charge with a paying adult!
