PHOENIX, Arizona – (02/26/18) The Valley’s first axe-throwing venue, LumberjAxes, is now open for bookings. Owner Corey Deasy, who also opened the first axe-throwing venue in the Pittsburgh area and owns an escape-room business, invites groups of friends, family members and co-workers to try their hand at the edgy entertainment phenomenon.
Competitive axe-throwing venues first hit the scene in Canada a decade ago. In the last few years, the trend has gained momentum, with 50 axe-throwing clubs now open in Canada and the U.S., and more on the way. As Phoenix/Tempe’s first such venue, LumberjAxes aims to create the ultimate axe-throwing experience.
Deasy specializes in bringing innovative entertainment to new audiences. “Axe-throwing may seem kind of out-there, but I knew Phoenix folks would be game to try it.” He adds, “It’s exciting to be up and running. As much fun as we had building this LumberjAxes location, it’s even more fun to see it full of people having a blast. The triumph on a new thrower’s face with they stick an axe in the target for the first time – that’s what it’s all about.”
LumberjAxes welcomes visitors of all experience levels, from old hands to newbies encountering their inner lumberjacks for the first time. Experts will be on hand before each session to provide instruction on proper technique and safety. If you’re holding a special event elsewhere, LumberjAxes will even bring the party to you: mobile throwing lanes are available for rental.
In order to book, groups must include at least six people on weekdays and at least eight on weekends. The space will accommodate up to 100 people for parties and corporate events. All participants must be at least 18 years old.
The cost for group sessions will be $35 per person for a 2.5 hour block, and throwers will be able to book in advance on the website, http://axethrowingphx.com/. Walk-ins, which will be available at limited times and only on specific days of the week, will be offered at a cost of $20 per person per hour. For an additional $5, throwers will soon be able to switch up their weaponry to try their hand at ninja stars, knives, cards and Batman batarangs. The space will accommodate up to 100 people for parties and corporate events.
LumberjAxes is a BYOB facility.
LumberjAxes is a member of the National Axe Throwing Federation.
