What Is Axe Throwing?
Similar to darts, axe throwing is an individual sport played with and against other members of a group. Individuals throw 1.5 lb. hatchets at wooden targets marked with a bullseye and score points based on where on the target they stick the axe.
Is it safe?
Safety is the most important detail at The Hatchet Factory. Each competitor throws in his/her own individual lane and competes side-by-side with another competitor. For each pair of throwing competitors, we have a throwing coach who is responsible for ensuring safety protocols are adhered to. Only the two active competitors throwing at that time are allowed within the throwing area, all other competitors are required to wait in the safety zone behind the lanes.
What are the minimum age requirements?
No one under the age of 18 is permitted entry. All guests must provide valid photo identification on entry.
Do I need to book or can I just come in?
You definitely need to book ahead for group events.
What if more people want to come after I
already booked my reservation?
The group size range that you booked tells us how many throwing lanes and coaches your group needs. As long as your number of participants stays within your group range, you’re good to go.
What if I think I may go over my group booking size?
If you've already booked but now another friend want to join in as well and you think you’re going to go overthe range you booked, please contact us ASAP. We can check availability to increase your reservation size. Please give us as much notice as possible though because we tend to sell out.
Will someone teach me how to do this?
Of course! Our trained coaches will be with you the whole time, supervising every tournament and overseeing every session beginning with safety rules and 1-on-1 throwing lessons.
Am I allowed to bring alcohol?
We are a BYOB facility. Our guests are welcome to bring beer, wine or cider. No liquor will be allowed.
Do you have any food or soft drinks for sale? Can we bring our own?
We do have vending machines on site. Please feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks!
Is there parking?
There is plenty of parking in front of our location as well as across the street.
How do I pay?
A deposit is required to book your reservation. You are able to pay your total balance online at the time of booking to make check in breeze. Please note, you must cancel within 48 hours of your reservation in order to receive a refund.
Can I just watch?
We do not allow spectators at our facility, but why watch when you can throw?
Can we take pictures & videos?
Take all the pictures you want and make sure to tag us on Facebook and Instagram!
What about accessibility?
Our facility is in an old factory and the restrooms are located up a few steps. Our axe throwing is readily available for a wide range of people with different abilities.
