What is Indoor Axe Throwing?

Axe throwing as an indoor competitive sport has taken off 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 1.5 lb. hatchets at wooden targets marked with a bullseye and score points based on where on the target they stick the axe.

Can I Just Walk In?

At this point we recommend booking your group events at least 2 days in advance. This way you are guaranteed an arena to have your game. We will have designated walk in times where there will be reserved arenas exclusively for walk ins, but it is on a first come, first served basis. Walk ins will not function like a tournament event and be paid for by the hour. You will still have a dedicated axe master to train you and maintain safety at all times.

Can my deposit be refunded upon arrival?

Yes, we can easily refund your deposit upon arrival and your group can split the balance evenly.

How does it Work?
Group reservations at Minnesota Axe can be made for a minimum of 4 people and up to 96 people.  We recommend that these reservations are booked in advance to guarantee availability.
How much does it cost?

There are essentially 2 ways to enjoy Minnesota Axe.


One way is by walking-in without a reservation. A walk-in is always first come, first served based on availability and availability is never guaranteed. Walk-in participants generally share their arena with up to 10 participants. All walk-in participants are given throwing training and an overview of safety protocol within your 1 hour of Axe Throwing.


A 2 hour minimum reservation at Minnesota Axe can be made for a minimum of 4 people and up to 48 people. Groups larger than 48 people should reach out to info@mnaxe.com for more information.

Price is $20/person/hour.


I made a reservation for 7 people, can I have 2 more join?


A reservation for the 4 person (one arena minimum), allows space for up to 12 participants, as does a reservation for the 13 person (2 arena minimum) allow for up to 24 participants. You will be charged based on the number of participants upon completion of your event.

Is it Safe?

Safety is our number one priority. The format we use and the construction of the throwing lanes are all focused around the safety of the participants. Each competitor throws in his/her own individual lane and competes side-by-side with another competitor. For each pair of throwing competitors, we have an event axemaster who is responsible for keeping score as well as ensuring safety protocols are adhered to and all tournaments are fully supervised. Only the two active competitors throwing at that time are allowed within the throwing area, all other competitors are required to wait in the safety zone behind the lanes.

Is there food at Minnesota Axe?

Yes!  Minnesota Axe shares a menu with The Emagine Entertainment Concession Stand and Bar. You can eat right at your axe throwing lane during your experience. There will always be servers and bartenders on hand to take orders.

If you are looking to have a large group party and are interested in our food packages, you can email info@mnaxe.com for a comprehensive list of our package offerings.

What Do I Wear?
