5 Frequently Asked Questions About Axe Throwing

If you’ve found yourself here, it’s likely that you’re considering going axe throwing but have a few burning questions before you book. At Blade & Timber, we pride ourselves as “AXE-perts” and we’re here to answer your common questions about our unique sport and axe safety.

Can children participate?

Ages 10 and up are allowed to join in on the fun of throwing axes! Axe throwers under 18 years old still need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian, which isn’t so bad considering axe throwing is the perfect family outing.

Do you have to make a reservation?

We don’t require a reservation although we strongly encourage online reservations. Walk-ins are first come, first serve basis based on availability. Instead of playing the guessing game, ensure you’ll be playing from our Book of Games by reserving your 90 minutes of axe throwing here!

Are spectators allowed?

We do allow two spectators if you’ve booked a private lane. That means no more than 8 people at a private lane at any time. This way there’s space for everyone to safely throw and enjoy their private lane. We promise we think you’re super great. We just need seating for guests who are planning on throwing axes.

Will there be training?

Yes! Our coaches are Axe Safety certified and will spend the first 15 – 20 minutes of your experience teaching you proper throwing techniques and making sure you feel confident handling the axe. They will also be available throughout the experience to help you master the bullseye and even teach you a trick shot or two. We can’t wait to cheer you on as you stick the axe!

What do you wear?

We recommend you dress comfortably while you throw axes at Blade & Timber.  

Whether you’re dressing to impress or showing off your best casual attire, you must wear closed-toe shoes. No exceptions. Don’t worry – if you forget closed-toed shoes we’ll let you borrow a pair of stylish Crocs.
