Why is Axe Throwing Popular?
Axe throwing is a fast paced, short game that involves friends, action and that you don’t do every day. Spectators have almost as much fun as the players and trash talking is encouraged. Axes come in three different weights, so the sport is comfortable for most people. It’s primal, screaming can be involved and there’s real skill involved. The included instruction at most axe throwing venues will set you up for success; anyone can do this!
How Many People Have Been Killed At Axe Throwing?
What? It’s the most common question. And the answer is the one you want: None. No one has died at recreational axe throwing. You don’t need to be a professional lumberjack, have any experience with axe throwing or even be in particularly ‘good’ shape; everyone can master the throw and hit a bullseye!
