Most frequent questions and answers


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.

Yes you can, as long as your axe is under 2 lbs and does not exceed 20 inches.

Yes, you must be at least 12 years old to participate in axe throwing.

If your Axe Coach was excellent please feel free to tip 🙂


Our pricing is based on per person per hour.  It’s $20/person for 1 hour, $25/person for 1.5 hours and $30/person for 2 hours.  There is also a small per person tax required by the city.

Currently we do not.  To keep it simple it’s a person / hour pricing model.

Yes, you can purchase gift cards at the axe range.  You can also purchase gift cards that can be mailed or e-gift cards online here.


You can make your reservation online here.  If you are not able to select a time for the date you picked that means that time slot is full.  Just pick another time slot.   If you have issues booking you can email [email protected]

You can book a reservation for a minimum of 2 people.  We do not require a large group in order to make a reservation.

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!

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.

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.

Absolutley! We’ve had several pregnant women come in and they had a blast. One was due the next week!
