The brand new location is set to open in downtown Baton Rouge at 600 Main Street. Bad Axe Throwing officials hope to see doors open to the public in spring 2020. 

“We’re really happy with our future home,” said Mario Zelaya, founder and owner of Bad Axe Throwing. “The location is perfect and we can’t wait to bring axe throwing to the people of Louisiana and Baton Rouge.”

Baton Rouge residents will be able to experience the thrill of axe throwing for free during the open house event in spring.

The facility will offer multiple packages for an axe throwing session. Walk-in sessions are available. Group rates vary depending on the size of the group and get you two hours of axe throwing, private lanes and a coach to walk you through the process. Discounted rates are also available for firefighters, nurses, EMT, paramedics, police officers and active military. 

Throwing axes at a wall might make you thirsty, though. That’s why Bad Axe Throwing will also be a fully licensed establishment that serves a variety of craft and domestic beer and wine.

You can even throw your next party here. The facility will host competitive leagues, birthday parties, bachelor or bachelorette parties, and team building events.

Everyone in the family is invited to try the activity. Kids may participate as long as they are old enough to safely hold an axe. Guardians or parents must be present. 

The company offers thorough safety and technique demonstrations to ensure everyone feels comfortable before picking up an axe.
