Brandon is anything but dull, especially when you have creative entrepreneurs opening new businesses that help to sharpen your skills (full confession, I do love puns!).
If you haven’t heard Kickin’ Axe Throwing Ltd. officially opened at the beginning of October. Brandon’s first axe throwing club offers folks an adventurous night out. Sole owner Darcy Low is pleased by the initial response after being opened for just a few weeks.
“I went to a similar place in Edmonton well over a year ago and then to a couple of places in Winnipeg. It was a lot of fun and I kept thinking that Brandon definitely needs something like this, so before I know it I’m scouting potential locations and planning out my new business. People who’ve come said they can’t wait to come back, so I guess that’s a good sign” said Low.
Kickin’ Axe Throwing is located at 389 Park Avenue East (look for the grey building at the back of the property with large, red overhead doors). They currently have two lanes, with a 12 foot throwing distance, and will soon be adding a third. There are three different styles of axes and a variety of challenging games that can be played.
Low said that it’s ideal to come with a group of four or more to get the most out of the experience and that it’s a great activity for stags/stagette’s, birthday/anniversary celebrations, corporate team building or for a fun night out with friends (age restrictions do apply, check in before booking).
They are open most evenings and weekends, but it is definitely in your best interest to prebook to avoid disappointment. Low said that while axe throwing is fun and unique, the safety of his guests is top priority and that everyone must wear close toed shoes and go through the training to learn how to throw safely.
I think this would be the perfect way to end a busy week, especially if you need to work out a bit of frustration!
