Throwing an axe for the first time is definitely an experience everyone should try. Thanks for the review and come back to BATL again so you can experience that feeling all over again!

First time doing anything like this. Had a blast! Would absolutely go back! Ask for Jenna! She ran our event and taught those of us who hadn’t played. Had great tips. She was definitely a part of the awesome experience!
