Have you seen this latest craze? Darts but with axes? Sounds silly but it’s “like totally awesome!”
This is not for small kids, but older teens (15+) and adults of all ages will love it. The instructors are great and you get a lot of practice before the tournament begins. It’s a classic tournament bracket style of elimination, competing for that wood chip that says you are a winner. Watch this, it’s even better in slow-mo.
It is good, clean family fun and trust me everyone is a beginner when it comes to throwing an axe. And just like basketball, you can throw two-handed granny style or get all sassy with the standing still, one-handed throws. There are no points for style, but you still need to have some sass when you are holding a sharp axe.
It is two hours of fun that will fly by. I felt like Mel Gibson in Braveheart, I thought there was a scene with his hair flowing where he throws an axe, my husband says he shot an arrow but in my mind, it was an axe and I was channeling my inner Mel!
Check out Bury the Hatchet to see if they have a location near you yet. Right next door is a place like a sip n’ paint except you put a planter together in a little round fish bowl. That seems like it might have potential… next time.
