You have some questions to axe? We're pretty sharp; let us try.
Is it safe? Although there's risk inherent in most fun activities (including this one), we've built our axe-throwing enclosure to the most stringent possible standards, exceeding even those set by the City of Milwaukee and the National Axe Throwing Federation. We have highly-trained coaches to teach you how to throw (or to improve your form if you've already got some Flinging under your belt).
How does it work? Imagine a batting-cage-like enclosure, but with a large, wooden target at one end. We have specific throwing lines (which only one person at a time is allowed to cross), and scoring depends on the game variety that you and your coach decide on, with variations from frames (similar to bowling) to a dart-like cricket model, where you "close out" the different parts of the target that you're aiming at. Whether you play once or a dozen times, it will always be a different experience!
What are the requirements? You need to be at least 14 years old, to be able to safely throw an axe, and to not be impaired by alcohol or other substances. You'll also need closed-toed shoes, a sense of adventure, and the willingness to sign a waiver.
You have a bar there? It must be chaos! Yes we do and no, it isn't. As a business that for years has offered Milwaukeeans both active play and a full bar, we've come to understand that the vast majority of our customers who are getting a beer or craft cocktail are not here to do kegstands, but to relax with their friends and family. For the rare outliers, we employ bartenders with excellent judgement.
