Walk-Ins with No Reservation

We book up fast! We recommend reserving a spot at least a few days in advance.
But we know stuff happens! If you want to stop by we will do our best to accommodate you.
Saturday is our busiest day and it’s highly unlikely that we can allow walk-ins.

Axe Throwing is FUN!

Common Booking Questions

  • Can children come into the axe range? Yes, however, they must be 12+ to participate in axe throwing. Younger children must be supervised closely because they can’t run around the axe range.
  • I’m pregnant, can I do this? Absolutley! We’ve had several pregnant women come in and they had a blast. One was due the next week!
  • How many people are on one ‘lane’? Each lane has one target and a ‘bay’ has 2 lanes. 4 – 5 people can comfortably fit on one lane. We schedule lanes in groups of 5, so if you have 5 or less people you’ll get 1 lane, groups of 6 – 10 will get 2 lanes and so on. You may be next to strangers during your session, but axe throwing turns strangers into friends!
  • I told people I was going Axe Throwing and now they want to join! Is that a problem? Hopefully you read the answer above first. Adding to your group is not a problem at all and they can pay at the range. Believe me, we do our best to accommodate every single group so if you exceed the 5 number for the lane we try to give you another lane. Of course this depends on availability and is very difficult on super busy days / times.

FAQ's

Frequently Axed Questions 🙂

Absolutely!  We will do a short overview of the rules and a brief introduction to axe throwing.

Reservations are highly recommended.  Especially on the weekend.  However, we do try to accommodate walk-ins whenever possible.

You can make a reservation here.

We require a 7 day cancellation notice in order to receive a refund on your payment or deposit.

At this time we do not.  Unfortunately, we had to stop doing this due to not being able to verify military status online.

We highly recommend wearing closed toed shoes for safety reasons.  You can participate with open-toed shoes, but we do not recommend this.

Absolutely, go to our WAIVERS page and sign the Adult Waiver or the Minor Waiver if someone in your group is under 18.

Just let us know that you’ve signed the waiver once you come in.

Unfortunately no.  Virginia State laws regarding alcohol are very strict.  We hope to be able to sell beer and wine in the near future.

Rules

Rule # 1

It’s common sense, but our lawyers made us say it.  “Axes can hurt if they hit you!”  Don’t throw an axe if someone is in front of you or near the target.  Keep a clearance area of at least 6 feet surrounding the target.

Rule # 2

Stay within the ‘safety zone’ when throwing your axe.  At Tribal Axe our safety zone is a 3′ x 10′ box marked by orange lines at the head of the axe throwing range.

Rule # 3

If there is an emergency please place your axe down and notify an axe coach immediately.
