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 all groups of 6 or more, visit our calendar to find your day and time. Plan for 2+ hours for one of our events based on the number of people who are attending.

If you don't have 2+ hours, you can walk-in without a reservation and rent a lane for an hour, if we have one available. You can call in advance to see if we are busy, but we do not hold lanes for walk-ins.

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 106! 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?

Yes, groups of 1-10 can walk-in to any of our locations during normal business hours and rent a lane (one target) on an hourly basis. A coach will show you safety, demonstrate throwing, and get you started on a game before they leave you to your own fun!

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.

Note:
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, (8 people minimum at some locations). These events are by reservation only with a deposit 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. $15 per person per hour. There is limited availability of walk-in lanes and you cannot reserve a walk-in time.

Is it safe?

Safety is our biggest concern, we will teach you the way to do it safely but we need your help.

PLEASE DON'T BRING SMALL CHILDREN WITH YOU!

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.

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 deposit.
5. You will receive a confirmation email with the time and date of your event.

Note:
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 Main Event, 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 $60 non-refundable deposit.

How do I pay?

When you book a Main Event a $60 deposit 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.

If you paid the deposit online you will be given credit for your deposit.

Do you have food and drinks for sale?

Yes, we have a selection of canned soft drinks, bottled water, snacks, chips, and candy at all our locations.

We have beer available for purchase at our Salt Lake City location only.

Can I bring food and/or drinks?

No outside drink is allowed but you can bring in food.

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

Beer is available for purchase at our Salt Lake City location only.

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 15 yrs and older. Here is why: our axes are heavy, we have found that there are some 13 year olds who can handle throwing for 2 hours but most can't, so 15 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. Some of our locations require 8 as the minimum on our busiest weekend nights; Friday and Saturday.

For a walk-in lane rental you can come by yourself. 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 40 people maximum.
• Salt Lake City location can handle 120 people maximum.

Do you host corporate events?

Absolutely! From 5 to 120 people, we can create a custom team building experience like you have never experienced.
