F a Q

Nobody likes rules, including the crew at Flying Timber Axe Throwing, but whenever you have people in close proximity to razor sharp axes flying through the air you are going to have to have a few. So here are the basics

Do I have to wear special clothing?
Closed toe shoes are required! We have a very limited number of very ugly and embarrassing slip on shoes available for rental ($4 with socks) . Dress comfortably and in clothing that will allow easy movement of arms.
Is axe throwing dangerous?
Safety is our number one concern! Our throwing coaches will start your time by briefly walking you thru the entire process of throwing axes and ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. Each lane is specifically built to meet all safty standards. Be sure to check out our videos for additional information.
Is axe throwing hard?
Everyone can do it! We promise! The axes are the smaller, hatchet-sized axes and weigh about 1.5 pounds. Lanes are marked with a throwing zone to help keep you the right distance from the target. Your throwing coach will show you the easy process of throwing axes and help you fine tune your throw during your session. They offer simple and easy to follow instructions on axe throwing.
Can I bring alcohol / does Flying Timber sell alcohol?
Outsides drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, are not allowed. We carry an assortment of craft beers, domestic beers, soda, monster, and water. We enforce a 100% ID check policy. Individuals showing signs of intoxication will not be permitted in the facility.
How much does it cost?
Please see our bookings section for packages, rates, specials and walk-in hours.  
Can I bring in outside food?
Absolutely!  Flying Timber does not provide utensils, plates or paper goods. If you are intersted in catering, please email matt@flyingtimber.com for some of our favorite suggestions.
Can I bring my own axe or knives to throw?
Only our axes can be thrown at our facility. This is due to insurance and for safety reasons.  
How big of a group can book a lane?
Each lane can accomodate a max of 6 people per lane. If you have more than 6 in your group, please book our 2 lane party pachage. For 13 or more people (3 or more lanes), please see our group rate information. For parties and special events we can accommodate groups up to 100 people. Our layout also works great for renting three or five lanes, which includes a large open space perfect for food set up and social area.
What are your hours?
Our hours can vary some due to private events. In general, our hours are currently Wednesday & Thursday 5PM to 9PM, Friday 5PM to 10:30PM and Saturday 12PM to 10:30PM. Any changes to this will be posted on our Facebook page. We are available outside these hours for private parties and events - contact us for more info!
Do I have to participate or can I watch?
All visitors to Flying Timber must complete a waiver, even if they are not throwing. You are welcome to watch other members of  your party throw. The lane max of 6 people is still in place due to space in the lane area. And don’t worry, when you change your mind and want to join in, come down to the front counter and we will get you set up for throwing. All participants and observers must be at least 12 years of age.
Is there parking available?
There is meter parking all around our building. Additionally, there is a city parking garage 1 block to the north. We are short walking distance from the Old Market, Capitol District, convention center, and ball field.
Do I have to make a reservation?
We strongly recommend booking your lane in advance. Our reservation system will show you when there is availability. There will often be open availability for walk-ins; however, during peak times we may not be able to accommodate walk-ins. Booking in advance will also allow your group to complete waivers prior to arrival, which makes check in much faster.
Is your venue handicap accessible?
Absolutely! All areas of Flying Timber are wheelchair accessible. Our throwing lanes are 5 feet wide. There is a minimal lip when transitioning to our padded flooring from the regular flooring surface. Our ramp is a little narrower than current ADA standards.
Is there a minimum age limit?
We require that participants and observers be at least 12 years of age. It is important that participants be able to follow instruction on proper procedures to ensure a fun and safe experience. The axes are not heavy and in our experience, most everyone of this age, and older, is able to participate. All minors must have a waiver completed by a parent or legal guardian. 
Can we come early to set up for a party or group booking?
Contact us in advance and we will do what we can to accommodate your request. We want your event or party to be the best event you and your guests have ever attended!
What if we are late for our booking?
Unfortunately we cannot hold lanes. If you are more than 15 minutes late, we may offer your lane to another waiting party. We also cannot extend your lane time, as it would interfere with other scheduled bookings.
Do you have leagues?
Yes! We have weekly league play on Thursday evenings from 7pm-9pm starting March 7, 2019 ending April 18, 2019. Two person teams will compete weekly for 7 weeks with 3 matches each week. Cost for 7 week league is $150 per person and includes league t-shirt, axe, and 1 free 1 hour axe throwing pass.  League participants must be at least 21 years old. Sign up here.
