Axes FAQ


What should I wear? Closed-toe shoes are a must for axe throwing. We also highly recommend loose fitting clothing to allow your body a full range of motion. Save the gun show for the beach.

What’s the minimum age? We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who does not appear mature enough. Having said that, age 14 and older may participate with a signed waiver. For the safety of those 13 and younger, we request that they are not in the axe throwing arena. No worries, simply get an arcade game card or a two hour pass for your kiddos.

Can I sign the waiver in advance? Yes, we encourage your online signature on our waiver from the comfort of home. This is especially important for minors who need a parent or guardian signature but will be accompanied by another adult, such as friend’s parent.

Do you charge for nonthrowers? We encourage everyone to chuck axes. However if seating is available we will allow nonthrowers to sit back, tip a cold one and watch at no charge as long as we’re under our maximum capacity.

Can we request a private lane? Yes. There is a flat charge for the use of a private lane, which is $105/hour for up to 5 people. Otherwise walk in lanes are communal.

What if we’re late? No axe-cuses will alter your reservation, which will start and end as originally scheduled. If you arrive late, your end time stays the same. Please get here 20-30 minutes early for check in.

What’s your cancellation policy? Life happens and things change, we get it. We may allow you to reschedule based on the circumstances and at least 48 hours’ notice. No shows will be charged full price because your axe-pert and your lane were waiting for you.

Can we bring our own food and liquor? Nope. And there’s no need. You can grab a drink and a snack at Amp Up’s Trackside Tavern before heading into our axe throwing arena.

May I Bring My Own Weapons? Our insurance guy says no. We provide two types of approved axes/hatchets for our guests to use.

Do Axe-Perts Accept Tips? Tipping is never expected, but always appreciated. Our throwing coaches will do their best to make your experience fun and exciting. If you don’t have cash, your axe-pert can run a credit card.
