Is axe throwing hard?

No way, everyone can throw an axe! They weigh about 2 lbs and are easy to throw. You'll also receive tips and tricks from a professional instructor. 

Is this experience safe?

Yes! Safety is the team's number one priority. This experience operates in a very controlled environment and each guest who enters must go through a safety briefing and training session before they are allowed to participate.

Can I bring my own axe?

No, all the equipment you’ll need to strike a bullseye will be provided!

Is this experience weather dependent?

This experience is great in all weather conditions. Rain only adds to the fun! In the event that they do have to close the course due to lightning or extreme weather conditions, you will be able to reschedule directly with the experience provider.

Is there a time limit to complete the course?

No! You are free to move through the course at your own pace. Please keep in mind, however, that there will be other participants out there. You are encouraged to let them "pass" if they are moving more quickly than you'd like to.

What if I am afraid of heights?

There is no better way to conquer your fears! Safety is of the utmost importance and you will be wearing a safety harness at all times. If you need a little help, your experienced instructors will be there to assist you through the course! 

What can/should I bring with me?

You may bring cameras, phones, or other devices on the course so long as they are secured to you and tucked away. Lanyards are available for purchase on site. It is not recommended that you bring a bag out onto the course with you, but if must bring one, please be sure it fits closely to your body. Gloves are required and you must bring your own or purchase them on the day of your experience!
