I took my team here for a work outing two months ago, and they still talk about it ALL THE TIME! Our personal coach was funny and helpful, and facilitated the friendly competition between us. The axe throwing itself is completely safe and very cathartic!...More

DET AXE has figured out a way to socialize something you probably grew up doing in your backyard...but this was WAY more fun. Friends. Drinks. Throwing sharp things competitively. You need to experience this at least once!

They just won't be able to order drinks. They will have a great time with the axe throwing and the games. Go hungry as the food is also great.

There is a sitting area where you can watch the axe throwing and I believe there are also 4 pinball games in that area as well.
