I used my Groupon and got the family out throwing axes! We were all registered and I checked in with just my name. Waivers were signed and we began. Jake was great at explaining what we needed to know to get us started. We had 90 minutes and started off just throwing individually. Eventually, we made teams and the competition began! There were only 4 in our group so 90 minutes was plenty of time. This is definitely fun for a group. Also, because it was a hot day, I called ahead and asked if we could bring a cooler with water which I was told was fine. There was plenty of seating (couches in the middle of the space) if someone is there to just watch or is waiting their turn. I will say that there are a few things that made this a good time... 1. I had the Groupon. Had I paid full price I would definitely feel I paid a bit too much. 2. It was family time! I laugh a lot with my family to begin with, so they were the best to share this experience. 3. The place was not crowded. I might have felt a bit overwhelmed had the place been at full capacity.

Having no idea what to expect, this was AMAZING! David was kind, friendly and informative. It was addicting for this nearly 60 year young gal. At first I was a but fearful but David explained everything and showed me why it was safe to throw with everything I got - and he told me why that one scary video I saw was wrong ( they had rubber mats, Axeplosion does not). Hoping to join a league!
