Had a fabulous time celebrating my brothers birthday! Thanks, Blake and Alex for all the tips on throwing and keeping safe! BIG RECO from me.

Had a fun axe throwing experience. Scott, our guide, showed us how to throw with proper form and adjust our form throughout the games. More importantly, he showed us a great time. Highly recommended.
