F.A.Q.

How long is each session?

One hour by default, but you are absolutely welcome to book longer sessions! To do so, click "Add to Booking" when making your reservation to book an additional time slot.

Is there a maximum number of participants?

If you reserve a lane, it can accommodate up to four participants. This is to ensure everyone has enough throwing time. You are also welcome to reserve multiple lanes at the same time for larger groups (based on availability).

For Social Throw, there is a limit of two people per booking. For groups of three or four, simply reserve a private lane.

How much does it cost?

A private lane reservation is $60 per hour (or $15 per person for a group of four throwers). Social Throw is priced at $20 per person.

What kind of clothing should I wear?

Wear comfortable clothing, but high heels and open-toe shoes are not allowed. We do have Converse sneakers available to rent for $5 per pair. And you can keep the socks!

Will I receive any training?

Of course! Most of our guests are new to axe throwing, so your experience will begin with a brief introductory lesson on the sport's rules and proper technique. Trust us, you'll get the hang of it in no time!

Do you allow walk-ins?

Yes, assuming we have lanes available! But we strongly recommend making your reservation ahead of time by booking on our Reserve page.

Is there an age requirement?

If you can throw an axe and are over the age of 16, you are welcome to play! However, anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Guests under 16 are not allowed to throw. All guests must have a valid photo ID.

Please keep in mind that if a member of our staff doubts the ability of any participant to throw an axe, he or she will not be able to play.

What equipment do you provide?

We provide all axe throwing equipment. For safety reasons, guests are not allowed to bring their own.

Is it possible to rent the whole space?

Of course! Axe throwing is a perfect activity for birthdays, bachelor & bachelorette parties, corporate team building events and more! To schedule a private event, give us a call at (860) 206-3940 or fill out our online contact form here.

Do you serve food or drinks?

We do not, but you are welcome to bring your own food and beverages (see below for our BYOB policy)! Our neighbors at Hog River Brewing Co. also frequently have a food truck on-site. Their schedule can be found here!

Can I bring alcohol?

Yup, we are BYOB! Beer, wine & spiked beverages (seltzers, teas, ciders, etc.) only. No hard stuff! There is a 2 drink limit per guest while on-site.

BYOB is $3/pp and can be added to your booking by simply clicking “+BYOB” in your cart.

But wait! BYOB is free if you bring in a growler of Hog River beer. Just show them your booking email confirmation to get a special growler cap to bring with you!

Please note: consumption of cans and/or growlers inside Hog River is not permitted per regulations, and cider cannot be purchased in growlers.

Is it safe?

Axe throwing is just as safe as any other adventure activity of a similar kind. When everyone respects the rules and safety measures, there is very little chance of injury.

Can my friends come to watch?

Your friends can come cheer you on, but we do have a limit of two spectators per lane. Any additional guests are welcome to hang out in our lounge!

Can we take pictures and videos?

Absolutely! And feel free to tag us @pineandironaxethrowing!

Do you sell gift certificates?

Yes, we do! You can purchase digital ones by clicking the "Gift Certificates" tab on our Reserve page.

Physical gift cards are also on sale in our facility.

How do I use my gift certificate / voucher?

If you have an electronic gift certificate (usually sent via email), simply enter it on the final checkout page by clicking “Pay By: Gift Certificate” at the top of the screen.

If you have a physical (plastic) gift certificate OR a voucher code, enter it when selecting the date & time of your booking by clicking “Apply Promo or Voucher”.

What types of payment do you accept?
