Axe Throwing FAQ

Home > Axe Throwing FAQ
What is Axe Throwing?

Axe throwing is a sport that involves competitors throwing an axe at a target, trying to get as close as they can to the bullseye. At Escape Room Mentor & Axe Throwing and Escape Room Middleburg & Axe Throwing locations, you and your friends have a choice of spending an hour or 1 and a half hours learning, practicing and then finally squaring off toe to toe in a group tournament that will result for bragging rights. Our Axe Throwing sessions are run by trained experts who will show you how to safely handle an axe and chuck it with accuracy while giving you plenty of tips along the way.

Yes, absolutely! You can bring snacks, finger foods, pizza, or whatever food you want! You may also bring non-alcoholic beverages.
