WHY WOULD I WANT TO THROW AN AXE?

Because inside of you there is a tomahawk tossing ninja that has been dying to be let loose since you were 12 years old!  And because it is so much fun!!  Indoor Axe Throwing has been around in Canada for 10 years and is a popular pastime for our friendly neighbors up North.  Learning the sport of Axe Throwing in a safe and controlled environment from an experienced instructor is a great way to be introduced to the sport.  The thrill of victory and rush of adrenaline you get when you sink a bullseye and hear your friends screaming your name will be etched into your brain from eternity!

“You haven’t fully lived until you have thrown an axe!” – The Most Interesting Man In The World


IS AXE THROWING SAFE?

Yes.  Throwing axes is similar to other target sports. Provided that participants follow the instructions and safety rules explained by our staff and use common sense, throwing an axe is safe.  Our experienced and highly trained staff are in the throwing arena with you at all times and monitor your throws for safety and guide you through the entire process. Only participants that have gone through our safety course are allowed to enter the throwing arena.  There is no passing of axes between players and players must follow specific instructions from their axe supervisor.


CAN YOU BRING YOUR OWN FOOD AND DRINK?

Absolutely!  You’ll have to provide your own cups, utensils etc.  We currently do not offer any food or drinks on site, but we do have a water fountain.  You can consume your food and drink at any time you’re not currently throwing, so you can chow down in between turns.  This includes beer and wine!  See below for our alcohol policy.


DO YOU ALLOW ALCOHOL?

Yes, we do allow alcohol on site if you follow these specific guidelines.

Absolutely no hard liquor is allowed on the premises.

You are not permitted to consume alcoholic beverages while actively throwing an axe.

No glass bottles are permitted.

I know what you are thinking… beer and axes?   Let it be known that if you are intoxicated you will not be permitted into the facility.  If you become intoxicated at the facility you will not be permitted into the Axe Throwing Arena.


HOW DO I PAY FOR THE EVENT?

Participants are able to pay online via our website for any time slots provided on a first come, first serve basis.  If you do not pre-purchase your tickets we cannot guarantee space for your group.  We can take payment for reservations on site via credit card.  We do not take cash payments at this time.


DO I NEED A RESERVATION/CAN I WALK IN?

Tickets are reserved on a first come, first serve basis when purchased directly on our website.  We have set times for you to sign up to participate.  It’s very similar to going to the movies, you can walk in but will have to wait for the next available time, if there is space available.  Please purchase your tickets in advance to reserve your space. We do not reserve spots without payment.


IS CATERING AVAILABLE?

We currently do not offer food on site.  However, feel free to bring food on site.  If you would like to have your event catered or delivered to our address email us to coordinate at info@houstonaxe.com


WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Closed toe shoes are a must! Be comfortable and wear non-restricting clothes.  Anyone wearing flannel will receive a crisp high five from your instructor.


WILL SOMEONE TEACH ME HOW TO THROW AN AXE?

Absolutely!  You will be with an instructor at all times.  The first half hour of your experience is spent learning the safety rules and procedures of how to handle an axe.  With proper instruction, practice and by following our guided procedures, you will be able to safely throw an axe during your session.


WHAT IS YOUR RESCHEDULE/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you would like to reschedule, email us at info@houstonaxe.com with your order number and we may be able to reschedule you.
72+ hours notice:  Reschedule to any available time slot.
72-24 hours notice:  Rescheduling fee of $10 per ticket.
Less than 24 hours notice/No show:  No refunds, no reschedules.


CAN MY KIDS PARTICIPATE/WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE TO THROW AXES?

The minimum age to participate without a parent/guardian is 18.  We are really really bad at guessing ages.  All of us were fired from the carnival for assuming everyone is 10 years old.  So, don’t forget your I.D. or you won’t be able to release your inner lumberjack.

Children ages 12+ can participate with a parent/guardian if they are with a parent/guardian at all times, and it is a 1 adult to 1(or 2) child aged 12+ ratio.  NO CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 12 WILL BE ALLOWED ON SITE AT ALL.  That means no strollers, baby carriers, toddlers on leashes or any other way you want to bring your kid under 12 years of age on site.  There is a separate waiver that the adult will have to fill out on site to authorize their children to participate.  If these guidelines are not followed we will send you home without a refund.


CAN I BRING MY OWN AXES AND/OR EQUIPMENT?

We provide all of the equipment that you will need.  All equipment meets World Axe Throwing League guidelines and specifications.  If you have axes that you would like to throw that meet World Axe Throwing League specifications you can bring them and we will inspect them on site.  We also have paper targets that you can throw at during your session.  They vary in shape and size and are priced from $1-$5.  You can also bring your own paper based targets to throw at.  Some examples of previous items include pinatas, photos of world leaders, ex boyfriend/girlfriends, friends, enemies, zombies and more.  If you’re looking to do something special or have a crazy idea, email us to ask and we will see if we can accommodate.


DO YOU HAVE MEETING/HANG OUT SPACE?

Yes we do!  We have a large lobby and lots of space.  Email us at info@houstonaxe.com regarding private events and space reservations.


CAN I THROW AN AXE BY MYSELF OR WITH A DATE?

All public events may have up to 12 people per range.  For public sessions, guests will not have a private throwing area or guaranteed solo activity time and will participate with others who sign up for the same time slot.  If you would like private lessons please contact us for more information or purchase a full range.
