An Axeperience in Grand Rapids
At BattleGR, we take safety very serious. We are the BEST, safe axe throwing in Grand Rapids and the surrounding areas. Our lanes have 15-foot dividers to keep you safe from throwers in the neighboring lanes. If there are no dividers or inferior dividers, you are not safe, period.
Our lanes have patent pending, no bounce back borders to provide the highest level of safety in axe throwing. How does a no bounce back border help protect you? These borders absorb the impact and allows the axe to fall straight to the ground; instead of bouncing off the wood.
Additionally, we use the end grain of the wood. How does end grain wood keep you safer? The end grain wood helps ensure the axe sticks to the target. We do not go to a big box store, buy 2 x 10 wood, and paint the target on it. You will find our targets are easier to get the axe to stick. Which makes the games more enjoyable for different arm strengths. The varying games and challenge levels make each visit customized and unique.
What is Axe Throwing?
Axe throwing is an exciting, new, extreme sport. And, it’s easy enough for you to enjoy without years of sports training. Play: After being assigned a lane, choosing your axe, and signing in (kind of like bowling), you will begin the game(s). Each player will throw an axe attempting to hit a bullseye on the target. Axe throwing at BattleGR is an interactive activity for family fun or some friendly competition.
