Not at all! We have a 100% success rate at Gulf Coast Axe House. Our throwing coaches will make sure you stick the axe in the target and understand the fundamentals during your throwing session.

-Do I need to wear special clothing or shoes?
Yes, we require closed-toed shoes for safety reasons to protect your toes, and we suggest you wear semi-loose fitting clothing for full range of motion while you’re throwing.

-Do I need a reservation?
Reservations are highly suggested as our lanes tend to fill up 2-3 days ahead of time due to high popularity. If you don’t have a reservation and want to check availability, just give us a call to confirm!

-Can I bring my kids?
Gulf Coast Axe House permits ages 13+ to enter the building and participate as long as a waiver is signed by a parent/legal guardian. Children under the age of 13 are not permitted due to insurance stipulations, we are sorry for the inconvenience.

-Can I bring my own axe?
At this time, we cannot allow outside axes to be brought in due to insurance stipulations. Only axes provided by the Gulf Coast Axe House may be used.
