If you’ve ever wanted to go axe throwing but found the cost or the minimum booking requirements stopped you in your tracks, we’ve got the answer for you. Axe throwing is slicing through the city with axe throwing arena cropping up all over the place, but to book an axe throwing experience, you usually need to have a group of at least six to eight people and the cost typically rings in at $30 to $40 a head. While the expense isn’t much more than your average experience, organizing a group of eight friends to be in one place at one time is actually pretty much impossible. When’s the last time you got together eight of your closest friends on the fly? Exactly
Fortunately for you, most of the axe throwing providers in Toronto have options. If you dig deep enough, most have walk-in hours or discount rates. We’re here to do the digging for you.
#1 – The Devil’s X
$30/person Tuesday nights
The Devil’s X is offering a special deal on Tuesday nights. They’re offering a reduced rate of $30 per person plus tax for groups of eight or more. If you can manage to gather your friends together for this one, they’ll thank you for the discount!
An axe throwing session at the Devil’s X is 2.5 hours and includes instruction from an axe master followed by a bracing round of axe throwing games. With the Devil’s X close to Toronto’s Halo Brewery, this one in a no-brainer.
#2 – BATL
$20/hour walk-in sessions
BATL hosts regular walk-in hours at all of its GTA locations for only $20/hour. You can come with a few friends or by yourself. There are experienced instructors on hand during drop-in sessions to offer lessons to inexperience axe throwers or tips to the more seasoned hands.
