Kick Axe is a really good place for things like birthday parties or corporate bonding, or a great way to spend the day with your family from out of town when you can’t handle another museum. And before you try and throw an axe at your annoying sibling, you should know that everything here is very controlled and no one is giving you that kind of freedom.
After you sign your waiver, you go with your group and meet your “axe-pert.” This place is all about the puns, so you may as well embrace it. A quick safety run down and you’re ready to start throwing. They lead you through different games and they keep score, which is nice because that gives you some time to drink beer or eat pizza. The axe throwing sessions are 75 minutes and (luckily) that’s not enough time to get super hammered.
If you’re looking for a workout, Kick Axe won’t do the trick. But you are moving, and it is active, so it’s a perfect place to take your boss who keeps on pushing that group SoulCycle ride. Kick Axe feels like a happy medium. It’s a place that’s as fun as you make it.
If you show up with less than eight people, you’ll be sharing your lane with some randos. Eight people gets you your own lane and you’ll just be playing among friends. Once you have your own lane you can add up to four more pals. Pretty axe-cellent.
