Updated: Apr 21, 2022
Not comfortable throwing axes just yet? Well here are some guidelines to becoming an axe throwing pro!
What am I getting myself into?
You are literally throwing an axe... That is it. It is no different than corn hole, darts, horseshoes, or bowling. We have set up targets in designated lanes for you to hurl an axe, end-over-end to hit the bullseye.
Is it Dangerous?
Not at all! We have custom built axe throwing lanes, each with their own cage surrounding it to protect you and your fellow axe throwers. And if that is not enough our experts will give you all the assistance you require to ensure minimal risk and maximum fun!
Is there a dress code?
Yes and no. We do require close-toed shoes to prevent any risk of injury, however we have no other dress code requirements for the axe throwing lanes! Just wear something comfortable and breathable since you will be moving around quite a bit.
How do I throw an axe?
It may sound like an obvious question, however there are certain techniques that make hitting that bullseye far more likely. We have markers that help to gage distance which is one important aspect, but there are a few tips and tricks to throwing an axe well. First one is hand placement. You will put your dominant hand on top and point both thumbs up the handle. Tip number 2, you will bring the axe directly over your head and rock forward-to-back. Tip number 3 is to let go just above your eye line and watch that puppy sore straight to the center of the board!
Now that you are more confident with the basics. Come in to the best axe throwing facility in Southern Utah!
