Axe Throwing is the Newest Date Night Trend

Coming up with new ideas for date nights can be a challenge. Do you revisit the same restaurant, go watch a movie, or set up a night in? These are great ideas but can be uninspiring and repetitive. Add axe throwing into your list of new ideas. This activity has taken over date nights, family nights, and friends’ night out all over the country. So, what is it and why is it so popular? Here’s what to know about this newest trend.

What is Axe Throwing?

Axe throwing is usually a group activity that takes up a couple of hours. All of the equipment is provided by the venue and oftentimes, there are also bar options and food available. These axe throwing sessions involve throwing an axe at a wooden target to earn points. These are small hand axes that are thrown overhand.

For safety, staff will coach players beforehand and guide them through their first couple of tosses. Everything is monitored closely and there are barriers in place to keep the axe from flying in the wrong direction.

Reasons to Go Axe Throwing for Date Night

Axe throwing is competitive, exciting, and fun. This is a great setting to get to know someone or to build on a previous connection. It can be a great way to impress a date and there are no dull moments.
