Disclosure: Axe Whooping Denver hosted us for a free evening of axe throwing in exchange for this post and social media coverage. All opinions are my own.
Throwing Axe’s, letting out some aggression, laughing, and time with friends equals an all around good night out. When I first saw information about Axe Throwing I added it to my bucket list and when I started joining a “Wine Wednesday” group a few months ago we decided it would be a perfect Wine Wednesday Field Trip! Axe Whooping agreed and set us up with a 2 hour Axe Throwing slot, it was so much fun!
Meet Axe Whooping
From Nordic Gods to Native American warriors, the vivid history of axe-throwing has always been bold and courageous. Before modern weaponry, real heroes carried axes. These were wood and stone works of art, often fashioned with their own hands, and the craftsmen knew how to use them. Even the mention of throwing an axe seems to incite a heroic mental picture of some muscular, historic figure. The common theme? They were pretty much all axe whoopers.
Fast forward a few thousand years, and the same fearless blood that flowed through the veins of battle axe-wielding titans still flows in those fearless men and women who dare to step foot on the battlefield, or the throwing floor. Even young champions can find the courage and strength to hit the target. At Axe Whooping, we simply give you the training, the tools, and the safety gear to accomplish it..
Whether you are a viking incarnate or a nooby looking to master your skills, Axe Whooping has some of the top axe throwers in the world to help you channel your inner warrior and have you hitting bullseye. Whether you want to walk in and start throwing at the largest indoor axe throwing facility in Colorado, or want to book your time and secure your coach, they always have time for you to get in your axe whooping!
What To Expect
From the moment we walked in the door we were welcomed and provided with great service and instruction. We had a reserved 2 hour time which meant we would have our own coach through out our time. If you are visiting Axe Whooping for the first time I highly recommend this. At first I thought 2 hours would be too long of a time but the first hour was a lot of Tobias teaching us how to throw properly. To be honest, it looks a lot easier than it really is!
Once you check in, you will be asked to sign a waiver (obviously!) and then you will be sent over to your “cage” with your coach. Your coach will go over the house rules and show how to best throw the axe. Once that is done, it is your turn! Jump in!! After we all got the hang of it, we broke out into teams and Tobias helped us play some games. It was so fun – not too competitive though, right ladies?
Once your time is up, you will simply put the axes down and walk out. 2 hours of fun and nothing to clean up! HECK YES!!
Our Thoughts On A Good Axe Whooping
We all agreed that we would be taking another Wine Wednesday Field Trip to Axe Whooping Denver now that we are officially pros (sort of). I really did not expect to have as much fun as I did – it really was great for the soul. A great way to let out some stress but also enjoy some fun with friends. Axes and great belly laughs are good for the body!!
Oh and speaking of body, I told you that this was a lot harder than I every anticipated. We all were breaking a little sweat and I certainly felt the axe throwing in my arms and shoulders the next day! The location was easy to find and parking was plentiful in that area. You can bring in your own food to this location and they do have a small selection of drinks available for purchase. This was a great way for all of us to step out of our normal go to fun and try something new.
Make sure you check out the video at the bottom of this post to see some of our throwing! So fun!
