So you have a few questions... Well, let's try to answer some of the most common ones here. If you need further info or clarification or just wanna chat about throwing stuff, contact us and we'll do our best to help.
Is it safe?
Yes. Our completely enclosed range ensures no random hunk of steel is going to go flying off somewhere it shouldn't. And, like any sport, there are rules both for competition and safety. A healthy application of the safety instructions (which you will be given before anything goes flying) and common sense means everyone will have a safe, enjoyable time.
Is throwing an axe or knife hard?
Nah. You’ve been throwing stuff since you were a toddler. This is the same as spaghetti, only better. Actually, there are some basics which we will demonstrate to speed you on your way to Viking glory. Don't worry, we will show you what to do. Folks tend to find knives more challenging than axes but it’s all good, all the time. You just have to stick with it.
What should I wear?
Closed-toe shoes are an absolute must (no high heels even if they are closed toe). Clothes should be comfortable and provide for a free range of motion. Kilts, flannel, and Viking helmets are optional but awesome.
Is there an age limit?
Participants must be at least 14 years old. Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian's consent on the waiver before they will be allowed to throw.
This can be indoor or outdoor?
Yep. Obviously outdoor on a relatively level surface is easier in most cases but with the right sized space, this could easily be indoor as well. We use heavy duty mats inside the range to protect what's underneath as well as the throwing implements.
How much space does this require?
The minimum dimensions needed to set up and use the range are 16' wide by 17' deep by 11' high.
What if I have alcohol at my event?
We’re ok with it but some common sense needs to be applied. Anyone drinking hard liquor or any alcohol to the point of obvious intoxication will be prohibited from participating. Throw first, then celebrate your glorious victories!
How much does it cost?
Each event is unique with differing variables such as length of time, number of people, and location. When you contact us, let us know what date(s) you are planning for your event, how many people you expect to participate, how long your event will last (we have a two hour minimum), where you will hold the event, and whether it will be indoor or outdoor. We will then contact you to discuss the price for your special occasion.
Do you require a deposit?
We will accept a 50% deposit for your event.
What is your cancellation policy?
Things happen and we will do our best to work with you if something comes up. Any event cancelled two weeks or less before the event date will forfeit the deposit. Any cancellation two weeks or more from the event date will be refunded all but $25 of the deposit. In the event of a weather-related cancellation, we will work with you to reschedule the event or refund 50% of the deposit.
Do you give back to the community?
Yes. We donate 10% of every dollar to The 25th Project, "a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the homeless restore their name." Check them out at http://the25thproject.org.
