– Lets’ get to the Axe House –

The minimum age for Axe Throwing at the Agawam Axe House is 18. Yes, our Policy has changed since we originally opened. We wanted to show consideration for those who have fears about minors in that atmosphere. While we would have loved to allow minors, it’s just not the right move, right now. We apologize to anyone who planned on bringing their minor(s). For those who were lucky enough to throw, well, you’ll be immortalized as the only minors allowed at the Agawam Axe House.

We have a minimum 2 guest per lane policy. If you don’t have a buddy, you can come along and just pay the $40 for the lane rental. Bookings on Friday and Saturday have a 4 guest minimum.

All throwing takes place under direct supervision of our experienced coaches, and we have dozens of protective measures in place, such as chain link fencing and a separated spectator area for guests who aren’t throwing.

Axes/Hatches thrown at the Axe House must pass our safety tests. Our coaches will have to throw your axe/hatchet in order to determine if it is safe for our facility. Guests who bring their own axes must understand that Agawam Axe House is not responsible for any damage to personal property.

Our only restriction on clothing is that close-toed shoes are required; otherwise you’re welcome to wear whatever you’d like.  We recommend avoiding high heels, and wear something comfortable and loose enough to allow for a full range of movement.

You’re welcome to bring your own outside food and beverages; absolutely no alcohol allowed on premises.

For a $3.00 plating fee per person, you are welcome to bring food for your guests or have it delivered, so long as it is prepared off-site. Outside desserts such as cakes, pies and cupcakes are exempt from platting fee charge.

We have pre-packaged snacks available for purchase, including Chips and even fresh-popped popcorn.

Most definitely – it’s our favorite part of this experience! You will be greeted by an instructor who’ll be there for you as much as you need.
