We get it. Things happen. Give us 24hrs in advance if you can. We can work with you to reschedule.

Yes. Kiddos have to be ages 10+ to throw.

The only rule is that you have to have closed-toe shoes. 

Walk-in hours are anytime we are open, but it’s usually best to come in after 4pm, as that is when we are staffed with Axemasters. We can usually get you in anytime, but if it’s really busy it might be hard. Remember, walk-ins are never guaranteed and it’s always best to reserve your spot online. 

Cash, Card or Gift Card.

Yes. We’d love it if you tag us on your social media!

Sorry – No. The only exception is for cakes or cupcakes for birthday parties. 

Yes, but you cannot have more than 2 drinks while axe throwing. And if anyone is obviously intoxicated they will not be able to throw anymore, but can still watch. 

That all depends on the number of lanes available and how big of party you have. Please contact the location and a manager will help you book your bad axe party!
