The Hatchet House Safety Rules!


WE REQUIRE YOU TO DRINK RESPONSIBLY. If you can’t handle your booze and are visibly intoxicated when you walk through the door, sit this one out. We reserve the right to cut you off at any time prior if we feel you begin to appear intoxicated. If necessary, we will also ask you to sit out for the rest of the game while your party finishes up with their reservation, and/or we will ask you to leave, sans refund. Remember, you are throwing axes in someone else’s house, behave yourself better than you normally would.

DO NOT THROW WITH EXCESSIVE FORCE. Excessive force is not needed nor allowed when throwing axes. If you find yourself looking like you’re about to pitch a fastball, you’re doing way too much. We installed lights at the end of every lane. When you see your lane flash red, we are sending you a warning that you are throwing inappropriately. If you want more info, come ask us, otherwise three red lights and game over, sans refund.

IF YOU STICK IT, RETRIEVE IT. When you stick an axe in the target please retrieve it before you throw another one. If not you increase the chances of breaking our axes.

ABSOLUTELY NO BOOZE IN THE LANES WHILE YOU THROW. Alcohol is only to be consumed outside of the throwing lanes.

CLOSED-TOE SHOES ONLY. No heels or wedges, no flip-flop or bare-feet even in summer!

NO RUNNING. Please no running in the facility ever.

STAY ALERT, PAY ATTENTION. Eyes forward and on your axe at all times once it has left your hand

AS A COURTESY, NO THROWING WHILE RETRIEVING AROUND YOU. Do not throw while your neighbors are retrieving their axes. It can be super loud and rude!

ONE PLAYER IN THROWING AREA AT A TIME. All others must stay behind the fencing for safety.

PLACE AXES INSIDE BLACK BOXES. Do not hand axes to next player; please place in provided buckets or black boxes when your turn is done.

DO NOT TOUCH THE BLADE. Never touch the blade, always grip by the handle

ONLY THROW INSIDE CAGE. No throwing outside of designated throwing area – keep it in the cage you animal!

DO NOT TOUCH WOOD. Do not touch the wood when removing your axe, we don’t want you to get a splinter, they hurt…a lot, trust us

**FAILURE TO FOLLOW ALL RULES AS POSTED MAY RESULT IN YOU AND POSSIBLY THE REST OF YOUR PARTY BEING ASKED TO LEAVE WITHOUT A REFUND, which is such a bummer. Please just follow my rules.**

Frequently Axed Questions!

After you are finished reserving your first lane, you’ll see a link that asks “reserve another lane?” click on that and follow the instructions to reserve an additional lane. 5 throwers are permitted per lane, so book accordingly!

Nope. But it’s definitely recommended! We leave two lanes open for walk-ins at all times, and it’s always on a first come, first served basis. If space available, we will always accommodate you. If your party is large and requires multiple lanes, it’s best to reserve ahead of time!

You can bring your own food, but we can no longer allow outside beverages. We have water, and multiple soft drinks available for purchase inside, in addition to beer. Thank you for understanding 🙂

We slang beer now, so try to come sans intoxication, you’re sure to throw a few back once you’re here!

Yes! We do! Available in person and online! If you go to our home page you’ll see a link for gift cards halfway down.

Because the environment is dangerous and we are liable for you while you are on the property. It is what it is.
