Axe throwing is an indoor competitive sport that started in Canada over the past decade. Similar to darts, axe throwing is an individual sport played with and against other members of a group. Individuals throw axes at wooden targets marked with a bullseye and score points based on where on the target they stick the axe.

We are basically $30 per thrower, however we do have base prices to keep all lanes private. 

A single lane, 1 target, has a base price of $60, and includes admission for 2 throwers.  Our single lanes can hold up to 4 throwers. Each thrower after 2 will be charged $30 per additional thrower.

A double lane, 2 targets, has a base price of $120 and includes admission for up to 4 throwers. Our double lanes can hold up to 8 throwers. Each thrower after 4 will be charged $30 per additional thrower. 

At Spymaker Axe Throwing the minimum age for throwing axes is 10. If there is a minor under age 18 in your group a guardian MUST be present and throwing at all times.
