**NEW** COVID-19 Social Distancing, Group Sizes & Sanitation Practices
To comply with recommended social distancing & sanitation practices we are taking the following precautions.

All surfaces and equipment will be sanitized between groups. Participants are encouraged to wash their hands before and after throwing. All targets are private bookings only. Hand sanitizer is available in the range area, at the front desk, & at the bar. Plexiglass barriers are also installed at check in and the bar. Starting June 22nd, 2020 all participants over 10 years of age are required to wear a face covering/mask while on site per executive order by Harris County.
All employees will: Wear masks while on site to limit exposure should they be pre-symptomatic. Have their temperature taken prior to starting their shift. Will follow proper hand washing procedures as outlined by the World Health Organization. Will disinfect the facility and work stations frequently and in between groups.
THE MAIN EVENT:
You and your best mates will spend time becoming intimate with a 1.5lb piece of whirling wood and metal as you learn, practice, play axe throwing games, and then finally square off toe to toe in a group tournament that will result in the crowning of an Axe Throwing Champion. Our Axe Throwing sessions are run by trained Axeperts who will show you how to safely handle an axe and chuck it with accuracy while giving you tips on how to capture that illustrious Bullseye!

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 8 years old! And because it is so much fun!! Indoor Axe Throwing has been around in Canada for over 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!

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 8+ can participate with a parent/guardian if they are with a parent/guardian at all times. Children under 8 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.
