FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ARE YOU A MEMBER OF THE WORLD OF AXE THROWING LEAGUE?

YES! We are proud to be industry members with the World Axe Throwing League. #WATL

WHAT IS THE ETIQUETTE FOR TIPPING?

Axe Throwing is in the service industry and tipping is similar to tour guides. Our instructors are expected to be by your side to provide the proper instruction to make sure that you have a fun and safe experience. Gratuities are certainly appreciated and can be applied digitally at the end of your session.

HOW HARD IS IT TO THROW AN AXE?

Everyone has their own learning curve, but axe throwing is a finesse sport – it has nothing to do with how hard you can throw and everything to do with the rotation of the axe. Our instructors will work with you to teach you the proper throwing technique and stay with you until you are getting results. After a few throws, most people have already experienced the thrill of hitting the target.

IS AXE THROWING SAFE?

Absolutely. We have seen the rebound videos on the internet as well – throwing an axe is about control and precision, not about throwing it as hard as you can. Our instructors will teach you proper technique and be around to oversee your experience. We built our throwing lanes with your safety in mind.

WHAT ARE THE AGE REQUIREMENTS?

Throwers must be at least 12 years old. Anyone 18 years or younger must be accompanied by a parent / legal guardian. You should know that all axe throwers need to demonstrate that they have the necessary strength and coordination to throw as judged by our staff. All axe throwers are required to sign a waiver; for those 12-17, the waiver must be signed by the parent/guardian.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Our only requirement is that you wear closed-toe shoes. NO EXCEPTIONS. No high heels. Boots, flats and tennis shoes are perfect options. Extremely loose or billowy clothing is not recommended since they may snag on the axe blades. Wear something comfortable and not too restricting. 

DO I HAVE TO RESERVE A LANE IN ADVANCE?

Yes, at this time we are not accepting walk-ins. We recommend BOOKING ONLINE to secure your spot or calling first before heading over.

WHEN SHOULD MY GROUP ARRIVE?

Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your scheduled time to get through the registration process. This includes making sure all electronic waivers are signed, confirm payment and receiving a safety orientation.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN THROW TOGETHER IN ONE LANE?

We can fit up to 6 people per lane. Each lane can accommodate 2 people throwing at the same time. Depending on how busy we are, if your party is fewer than 6 people, you may be paired up with other people (like golf). If you have a big party, we offer group rates to reserve private lanes all the way up to a full venue rental.

CAN I COME TO WATCH MY FRIENDS THROW?

Of course, we have plenty of comfortable places to hang out and watch your friends compete or your favorite sports team on one of our many TVs. Hopefully after you see how much fun it is, you’ll want to throw too!

WHAT IS YOUR ALCOHOL POLICY?

The Downtown Axe proudly serves a variety of domestic beers, craft beers, hard ciders, hard selters, wine, soda and water. 

We are NOT a BYOB axe throwing venue. No outside food or beverages are allowed. 

CAN I BRING MY OWN AXE?

Please call us first. We only allow short-handled axes / hatchets. We do not allow double-edge axes or long-handled axes. All axes must be WATL compliant. We do offer a wide variety of axes including different shapes, styles, weights and more! 

CAN I THROW KNIVES?

No, we are exclusively an axe throwing facility and our throwing lanes were not designed to allow for safe knife throwing.

CAN I RENT OUT THE DOWNTOWN AXE FOR A PRIVATE EVENT?

Absolutely! Please CONTACT US or give us a call to talk through options. We prefer to have at least a 48 hour notice for private events. 

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

All sales are final. If something comes up, please call us and we can work with you to reschedule your time for a future session if space allows.

WHAT IS YOUR NO-SHOW POLICY?

All sales are final. If something comes up, please call us and we can work with you to reschedule your time for a future session if space allows.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM RUNNING LATE?

Rush hour traffic is the worst. Just give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate you based on our availability for the rest of the day. If we are booked solid, we may need to reschedule.
