5 Reasons You Should Try Axe Throwing
Axe Throwing has become incredibly popular over the last few years, and for good reason. Not only is it fun, but it’s a great workout too. Plus it makes you look like a total badass! Whether you’ve hurled axes in the past, or this is something completely new to you, we’re going to show you the top 5 reasons why you should try Axe Throwing at High Caliber Karting and Entertainment.
1. Stress Relief
Everyone needs to blow off a little steam from time to time. Whether you’ve been putting in long hours at the office, have a big event coming up, or your schedule has just been extra hectic, axe throwing is a fantastic way to take some of that weight off of your shoulders. There is nothing quite like the feeling of hurling a heavy axe into a thick stack of unsuspecting wood. It’s calming, invigorating and stress relieving all at the same time. And it’s way cheaper than talking to a therapist!
2. An Alternative Workout
You might not think so at first, but axe throwing can be an excellent workout. In fact you probably won’t even realize this until the next day when you’re a bit sore from hurling all those axes (and from laughing your arse off the whole time). That’s because axe throwing actually uses muscles in your arms, shoulders, chest, back and core. Reap the benefits of physical exercise that is both safe and fun, without having to overexert yourself. Sounds like a win-win to us. And if you happen to work up a thirst, we’ve got you covered there as well, because the Double Clutch Lounge is literally right around the corner. Choose from an extensive list of cocktails and craft beers on tap!
3. it's Fun
As you’ve probably figured out by now, axe throwing is fun as hell too! Whether you’re here with friends, family, or coworkers, it’s virtually impossible not to have a blast throwing axes. Good company almost always produces a good time, and High Caliber helps you kick it into high gear. That’s because we don’t offer just any old traditional axe throwing- we have gamified axe throwing. Forget about those tattered, beat-up targets painted on wood that you’ve seen at other places. At High Caliber, we project images and visualizations directly onto the end grain of stacked 6” x 6” lumber. So you can hunt zombies, play tic-tac-toe, connect4, or choose from a variety of other games and target types, including the classic bullseye. Oh, and your axes will stick into the wood better this way too. You’re welcome.
4. Something Different
It’s easy to find yourself doing the same things over and over again. Break up the monotony and try something different. While axe throwing has grown in popularity over the years, there are still many people who have never even heard of it, or thought of trying it. They say that variety is the spice of life, so spice things up the next time you’re planning to go out with friends or coworkers, and try axe throwing at High Caliber Karting and Entertainment.
5. Great for Socializing
Axe throwing is one of the best social activities out there. With a variety of game and target options, axe throwing will get even the shyest and most quiet person in your group to come out of their shell and come alive. And first timers need not worry- our Axperts will give you instructions and have you looking like a pro lumberjack in no time. Get a little friendly competition going between your group, and compete for the ultimate bragging rights of the night. If you think your skills are really top notch, we have competitive axe throwing leagues for you to join, where you can hang out amongst your fellow lumberjack peers, and talk about types of wood grains and axe velocity (or just normal stuff too).
