What's Included

Have you ever played darts? Well, this activity is similar in regard to scoring but instead you’re throwing steel axes at the target. Our experienced range officers will run you through a safety course and teach you how to throw like a pro. Each session will include a training & safety course and all of the equipment required for this steel flinging fun. Once you’ve completed your training you can begin throwing. You can select any target from one of our packages: Zombie apocalypse, claim jumper calamity, gangster gun fight, or grizzly bear attack. Available for ages 12+.

Traveling with kids?
