Our knowledgeable and safety cognizant Axe-perts help with their supervision as well as providing safety training to every thrower prior to their first throw. Safety is our #1 priority. We operate a very controlled environment and each guest who enters must go through our safety briefing and training session before they are allowed to participate.
