Starting February 1, there will be a fine of $100/pit/hour enforced for parties who reserve multiple pits but arrive without adequate throwers to fill them. Similarly, parties will be held accountable to pay for their entire reservation; i.e. if 2 hours are reserved but players want to leave after 1, they will still be charged for 2.
Is there a minimum number to have in my group?
A minimum group of 2 is required to reserve a private pit. Our average group size ranges from 6 to 10 people. Please advise us if your group will be larger or smaller so we may staff accordingly.

Walk-ins are welcome for groups of up to 9 players. When necessary, walk-in groups will be placed with other walk-in groups.

YES! And it is strongly encouraged that you do so.
How much play time do I get?
2-10 players may book a pit for 1-2 hours. It is recommended that groups of 8 or more players book no less than 2 hours of play to ensure that each receives ample throwing time.

Can anyone throw an axe?
We have no age restrictions. Throwers under the age of 18 must have a guardian present. We have no restrictions regarding pregnant women throwing axes. Please use your own judgement.

Players may pre-register prior to arrival to expedite the check-in process.
Can I arrive early to my reservation?
Guests are encouraged to arrive about 10 minutes prior to their scheduled session to complete waivers, and will have free access to their pit provided it’s not in use. However, if any materials (i.e. decorations, catering implements) need to be dropped off earlier than this, please contact us to make special arrangements, and we’ll do whatever we can to help out. Players may also pre-register prior to arrival to expedite the check-in process.
Do you throw anything other than axes?
Yes. We also throw Ninja Stars and Throwing Cards.
