What is Social Axe Throwing?

Social Axe Throwing is an indoor axe-throwing venue. We host parties of all types, corporate team building events, leagues, and walk-in customers. It is Social, Competitive, and Fun!

Do you take reservations or do I just visit one of your locations?

We highly recommend that you make a reservation. For groups of 6 people or larger, please reserve our 2 hour package available at all locations. 

If you don’t have 2 hours, we have our 1 hour option. This reserving a lane for up to 5 people. If you have more than 5 we recommend booking the 2 hour package or reserving additional lanes. Make sure to leave a comment in the note section of your 1 hour booking if you have multiple lanes booked so we can ensure your group is put together. We do have walk in lanes at all locations. They are on a first come first served basis. 


What is a Main Event?

A Main Event is a social event we created around axe throwing. It is a 2 hour gathering of 6-24 people at one of our locations where a coach will teach the group to be safe, throw axes, and entertain them with a series of games. You cannot bring in beverages.

Corporate events are also possible and fully customized to meet the needs of your group. We have done small meetings of 6 or large tournaments up to 150. Call or email for a quote on your event today!

I have a Main Event booked, how early should I arrive to prepare for the event?

Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled event time to handle all pre-event procedures and guarantee an on-time start. It is important that we start all our events at their scheduled time. If you are late we cannot add time to the end of your event.

Can I walk-in and rent a lane?

Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled event time to handle all pre-event procedures and guarantee an on-time start. It is important that we start all our events at their scheduled time. If you are late we cannot add time to the end of your event.

We DO NOT RESERVE walk-in lanes.

Walk-ins are first-come, first-serve. You are welcome to wait in our lounge for the next available lane. If you choose to leave and come back you will lose your spot on the waiting list.

Walk-in lanes on Friday and Saturday nights are very busy and large groups may have to wait for two targets next to each other to become available. Please be patient as our staff tries to accommodate your group. Better yet, go online and book a Main Event and select the time and date of your choosing and be guaranteed to have the targets and a coach in one of our throwing arenas!

How do I “Social Axe Throw”?

We have wooden targets and metal axes, we have designed the games and trained the coaches. You come in and we will show you how to be safe, how to throw the axe, and entertain you with some competitive games.

We have a couple of ways to enjoy Social Axe Throwing:

  1. Book a Main Event by selecting one of the available time spots on the calendar of the location of your choosing. This requires 6 people minimum. These events are by reservation only with a $5 reservation fee required. They will last 2 hours.
    ***If the date and time your are interested in is not available please email us at: info@socialaxethrowing.com and we will try to accommodate your request.
  2. Walk-in to any of our locations during normal business hours and rent a target/lane for an hour. There is limited availability of walk-in lanes and you cannot reserve a walk-in time.

Is axe throwing safe?

Safety is our biggest concern, we will teach you the way to do it safely but we need your help.
Please listen to your coaches and don’t goof around, and remember it is AXE THROWING, not Nerf wars!
Please don’t come in if you have been drinking!

Can I bring small children with me?

No, please do not bring your small children with you.

Can I bring my kids?

Only if they are of throwing age “13 years old”and ability. We request that you leave all children at home who are not of throwing age.

What do I need to bring or wear?

We require you to wear CLOSED-TOE SHOES!

Flannel is optional but always produces a smile from our staff! We recommend you wear comfortable clothing, a shirt that allows your arms a full range of motion will help a ton!

Oh, and a kick-axe attitude.

Can I bring my own axe or tomahawk?

We don’t allow you to bring your own axe or tomahawk, unless you are participating in one of our leagues.

How do I book an event or party?

  1. From the home page select the location you wish to visit and you will be taken to a calendar.
  2. Select the date you wish to throw.
  3. Pick from the available event times that fit the number of people you have attending.
  4. Fill out the “Register” page and pay your $5 Reservation Fee.
  5. You will receive a confirmation email with the time and date of your event.

If you are looking for a time outside our normal business hours please email us at: info@socialaxethrowing.com and we will try to accommodate your request.

Do I need to book in advance?

No, but we strongly recommend it if you are bringing more than 5 people for a walk-in lane

You are required to book in advance for a 2 Hour Main Event Party , this guarantees you the event time that you would like and allows us to make sure one of our qualified coaches is available for you.

To complete the booking process you must pay the a  non-refundable and does not go toward your total $5 Reservation Fee.

How do I pay?

When you book a Main Event $5 Reservation Fee  will be taken to hold your time slot.

At the time of the event, we will collect from the party host, or each individual, the remainder of the event cost. We are happy to break it down individually for all your guests to pay with their own credit cards or cash.

Yes, we have a selection of canned soft drinks, canned water, snacks, chips, and candy at all our locations. Our Ogden, UT & Gilbert, AZ have full restaurants. 

We have beer available for purchase at all of our locations as well.

Can I bring food and/or drinks?

No outside drink is allowed, you are welcome to bring in food to our SLC location. We do not allow food to be brought into our Ogden,UT or Gilbert, AZ  location, it now has a full kitchen. 

We have a selection of waters, soda, chips, and candy for purchase.

Beer is available for purchase at both all of our locations. 

Can I bring alcohol?

No, we have beer for purchase.

How old do you have to be to throw?

This is a tough question and one we get all the time. We set our age limit to 13 yrs and older. Here is why: our axes are heavy, we have found that there are some 12 year olds who can handle throwing for 2 hours but most can’t, so 13 became our age break.

We are sorry, but we are not interested in hosting your 10 year old drop-and-go birthday party. This is an axe-throwing venue and we need adults present to supervise young children.

We do welcome scout troupes!

Does someone teach me to throw?

Yes, one of our coaches will show you how to be safe and throw successfully.

What is the minimum group size?

For a Main Event the minimum is 6 and they must be booked in advance. 

For a 1 hour  rental you can come by yourself or up to 5 people per lane. If you have more than 5 people planning on coming we recommend that you book a Main Event.

What is the maximum group size?

This is location dependent:

  • Ogden location can handle 85 people maximum.
  • Salt Lake City location can handle 120 people maximum.
  • Gilbert location can handle 75 Maximum. 

Do you host corporate events?

Absolutely! From 6 to 120 people, we can create a custom team building experience like you have never experienced.

Please contact us at info@socialaxethrowing.com for our Utah locations and arizona@socialaxethrowing.com for our AZ locations to customize the event to meet your needs.

What is your cancellation policy?

 You can transfer your reservation fee to a new booking date, but only once.

You must make the transfer with a minimum of 24-hour notice.

Any transfers within 24 hours of your event time will require a new $5 reservation fee.
