Came here as part of a team retreat and had a great time. Cristina was a great help and the team loved it. Probably won’t hear the end of the bragging of our winner but we expected that ;).

This place was a blast! Aaron was a great teacher for our group of almost ten and was on hand the entire time to provide tips and tricks to make throwing the axes easier and more accurate. Highly recommend!

Aaron and his staff were outstanding with all of us at our work party. He, David and the other staff members were helpful in guiding us in ax throwing. It was fun and competitive. I would highly recommend going to BATL in Novi.
