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!

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?
Absolutely! We currently offer pre-packaged snacks and candy for sale. If you’re craving a hearty meal, please feel free to bring your own food or have it delivered. We do have a water fountain. You’ll have to provide your own cups, utensils etc. You can consume your food & drinks 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/SELL ALCOHOL?
Yes, we do allow alcohol on site if you follow these specific guidelines.
STARTING 11/23/18 WE WILL SELL BEER, WINE, AND NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ON SITE. WE WILL NOT ALLOW ANY EXTERNAL BEVERAGES ON SITE AFTER 11/23/18. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT US AT INFO@HOUSTONAXE.COM.

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/CAN I PAY?
Participants are able to pay online via our website for any axe throwing 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 on site via credit card. We do not take cash payments at this time. Once you’ve made payment and received your confirmation email you are all set for that time slot.
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 offer pre-packaged food on site (Candy, chips etc). 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 email@example.com

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?
All sales are final. If you would like to reschedule, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number and we may be able to reschedule you.

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. Children under 12 years of age can be on site if they are supervised at all times and kept out of the axe throwing arena. 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 specialty and larger axes that can be rented for $5-$10. 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 some space for you to gather during your axe throwing adventure. Email us at email@example.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. All of our 1.5 hour Walk In Adventures are great for dates and are available on Wednesday, Thursday & Sunday regularly. Friday and Saturday Walk In Adventures will be posted at least 12 hour prior based on availability. If you would like private lessons please contact us for more information or purchase a full range.
CAN I JUST WATCH MY FRIENDS?/DO I HAVE TO THROW?/DO YOU ALLOW SPECTATORS?
Why would you want to come to an axe throwing facility and not throw axes?! We have limited space available for groups so we do not allow spectators. Exceptions can be made for one person who is joining the participating group to watch a child under 12 years of age. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with additional questions.
IS YOUR SPACE WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE?/CAN I THROW WITH AN INJURY?
Yes it is! Our facility is fully ADA compliant and we’ve had people throw in walking casts, in wheelchairs, with shoulder injuries etc Our coaches will do their best to get everyone throwing like an axepert.
