What a great night we had. Great coaching and great fun. Our whole party all had the best time, and would love to do it again.



Went with 15 people from the office. The coaches are great and teach you everything you need to know. Overall had a very good time!



We went for a birthday and had a great time. Despite what you might think, throwing axes is not intimidating at all! Our coach, was awesome!
