Closed toe shoes are required! We have a limited number of ugly slip-on shoes available for rental ($2 with socks). Dress comfortably and in clothing that will allow easy movement of arms.
Safety is our number one concern! Our throwing coaches will start your time by briefly walking you thru the entire process of throwing axes and ensure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. Each lane is specifically built to meet all safety standards.
Not with our targets and axes! Everyone can do it! We promise! We use end grain targets, which are the easiest targets to stick. The axes are the smaller, hatchet-sized axes and weigh about 1.5 pounds. Lanes are marked with a throwing zone to help keep you the right distance from the target.
Your throwing coach will show you the easy process of throwing axes and help you fine tune your throw during your session. They will offer simple and easy-to-follow instructions on axe throwing.
Outsides drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, are not allowed. We carry an assortment of craft beers, domestic beers, soda, monster drinks and water. We enforce a 100% ID check policy. Individuals showing signs of intoxication will not be permitted in the facility.

Only our axes can be thrown at our facility. This is due to insurance and for safety reasons.
We have eight lanes. Each lane can accommodate a maximum of six people per lane. If you have more than six in your group, please book our two-lane party package. For 13 or more people (3 or more lanes), please see our group rate information.
For parties and special events we can accommodate groups up to 100 people. Our layout also works great for renting three or five lanes, which includes a large open space perfect for food set-up and social area.
Our hours can vary some due to private events. In general, our hours are currently:
Wed – Thurs 5PM to 9PM
Friday 5PM to 10:30PM
Saturday 12PM to 10:30PM
Sunday – Tues & outside regular hours available for private bookings.
Any changes to this will be posted on our Facebook page. We are available for private parties and events outside regular hours – just contact us for more info!
All visitors to Flying Timber must complete a waiver, even if they are not throwing. You are welcome to watch other members of your party throw. The lane maximum of six people is still in place due to space in the lane area. And don’t worry, when you change your mind and want to join in, come down to the front counter and we will get you set up for throwing. All participants and observers must be at least 10 years old.
There is meter parking all around our building. Meters are free on Sundays. Additionally, there is a city parking garage one block to the north. We are a short walking distance from the Old Market, Capitol District, convention center and ball field.
We strongly recommend booking in advance. Our reservation system will show you when there is availability. There will often be open availability for walk-ins. However, during peak times we may not be able to accommodate walk-ins. Booking in advance will also save quite a bit of time at check in, since all participants can complete their waiver online prior to arrival.
Absolutely! Our throwing lanes are over five feet wide. There is a minimal lip when transitioning to our padded flooring from the regular flooring surface. Our ramp is a little narrower than current ADA standards.
We require that participants and observers be at least 10 years of age. It is important that participants be able to follow instruction on proper procedures to ensure a fun and safe experience. The axes are not heavy and in our experience, most everyone of this age, and older, is able to participate. All minors must have a waiver completed by a parent or legal guardian.
Contact us in advance and we will do what we can to accommodate your request. We want your event or party to be the best you and your guests have ever attended!
Unfortunately, we cannot hold lanes. If you are more than 15 minutes late, we may offer your lane to another waiting party. We also cannot extend your lane time, as it would interfere with other scheduled bookings.
