Are there any clothing restrictions?

Yes. For obvious reasons, we can’t let you throw axes in open-toed shoes or sandals. Aside from that, just wear something that’s comfortable and gives you a good range of motion. Lumberjack attire is not required but will impress and amuse the staff.

Will axes and all necessary equipment be provided?

You betcha. Axes, lanes, and targets will be provided by us!

You must be at least 18 years of age.

How safe is axe throwing?

Surprisingly, it’s very safe. Competitive axe throwing businesses have operated without incident for over ten years in Canada. Follow our strict safety rules, and you can be just as safe as the Canadians!

Can we bring our own axes?

Nope, for safety and insurance purposes, you must use our axes. They’re nice axes.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you cancel your event at least two weeks beforehand, we will refund your deposit. Within two weeks of the event, we will not refund you, but we will reschedule you at our discretion.

Can I bring people who are planning to be spectators rather than players?

Sure you can bring up to two (2) fans... umm spectators with your group free of charge.  Any additional spectators after the first two will be charged the full amount of $35/person for a tournament or $20/person for a walk-in session.
