If you’ve yet to experience the adrenaline rush of hurling an axe full-speed at a target, you’re overdue for a visit to Battle Axe. Located near Greenview at Chestnut Run, the business brings the same style of competitive axe-throwing that got big in Canada to your neck of the woods in a fun atmosphere.
Its warehouse-style space boasts several “lanes,” each of which can accommodate up to 10 axe-throwers. After a brief tutorial and safety instructions, you’ll be let loose to toss your axes at the large wooden targets. Although Battle Axe doesn’t currently sell food or drink, it has an alcohol license in the works and regularly hosts a local winery. You can also stop in at local hotspots after your axe-throwing session, like Midnight Oil Brewing Company or Jessop’s Tavern, and score discounts with your Battle Axe receipt.
