Having never thrown an axe before, I was skeptical about the experience I was about to have. Within a few minutes and proper coaching by Derek, the owner, I was having a blast and perfecting my new skill. Wood-Splitters is a wonderfully large, family friendly facility, and pure fun.

Wood-Splitters is great fun for EVERYONE! This extremely LARGE new indoor facility has been built for durability as well as user comfort. The bright open floorplan is inviting with attention to user safety. Wood-Splitters is for ALL ages, and ALL abilities. After one visit (Step/Throw/And let it go*) I want to come back with my whole family!

This place is awesome! Came with a friend this past week and had a blast throwing some axes around. Chucking some axes and watching them stick into the center of a target is surprisingly therapeutic haha. The owner Derek was very friendly and took plenty of time going through proper throwing technique and safety advice. It took a few throws to get dialed in, but once you understand the motion it's really simple and anyone can do it. I even saw a few kids who looked around 7 or 8 years old throwing and hitting the targets(!). I believe they're planning on having some league nights so I'm definitely going to check that out. This would be a great group activity - go check them out.
