Super fun experience! Worth trying if you’ve never tried ace throwing before. Crustal was super friendly and helpful!

Went to their current location in St. John's. Never tried ax throwing. Went with family (adult children) and had a great time. Super-friendly staff, good help to get going, then just had fun and a beer (ok, a few). Will definitely go back.

Great fun! What could be more fun than drinking beer and throwing axes?
The answer is nothing! It's the utilmate fun!

The "instructors" are fun and helpful.
They have a good bar with lots of craft beers on tap.

Really good place to get your fun on with colleagues or friends, or even family!

We all enjoyed ourselves here. Was a group of about 20. Good time had by all. Beer was good. Bartender service could use a little improvement. Didn’t seem overly friendly.

After an expensive meal at the best restaurant in town (Raymond's), the waiter asked my boyfriend and I what our plans were for the rest of the evening...and I blurted out "We're going to THROW AXES!!" He thought that was the greatest thing he'd ever heard!! And it WAS!!!! What a FUN experience and it's harder than it looks!! I was even given proper footwear to wear inside to protect my toes. You have to go and try this! You won't regret it!

Top Notch!
Neat activity with excellent staff that give you an introductory ‘crash course’ in axe throwing.
Fun atmosphere, lighthearted atmosphere however keeping safety at the forefront.
You can’t even enjoy a microbrew as long as it does not go into the throwing area.
It even has an area for minors so that the whole family can go.

We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone. Best 22 bucks you could spend in St. John’s for an hour of activity!

This was a good bit of fun for something different around town. The staff were good, but I did find the bartender a bit stand offish...not great when dealing with customers is your job. Also, could use some help in the ax sharpening department. We found the axes looked shiny after they sharpened them but were hardly sharp. I do recommend this place to friends for a good time out. Beer was great!!

Went with a large group from work. Wasn't sure what to expect. Figured it was just some novelty fun that would be new and exciting at first, but I fully expected to get bored rather quickly. I couldn't have been more wrong! The more you throw, the more you want to throw!
The staff were friendly and helpful. They were able to keep a close eye on everything (safety is obviously key with this type of activity) and they were quick to step in and give some throwing tips. And they did this without it feeling like you were constantly being watched, which was the perfect balance to make you feel at ease.
The beer available was limited to a decent selection of local beers which was great for people like me, but the big brand folks might be disappointed. Hopefully it forces a few of them to escape their comfort zone and try something different. Their is no hard liquor available, probably due to the fact that axe throwing is the main point after all. Cider and wine are also available.
As for the axe throwing, there is a skill to it, but with the help of the passionate staff, it doesn't take too long to get relatively comfortable with the art.
For those under age, there are also a couple lanes outside the bar area. When we left there was a family there seeming to have a good time. I was told that kids as young as 6 years old have been there.
This is definitely something I will try again!
