The 4000 square foot facility will be located at 700 Gervais Street and plans to open Jan. 31. Craft Axe Columbia will feature 14 throwing lanes and they have applied for permits to serve craft brews. Each of the 14 throwing lanes will accommodate 2 to 4 throwers at a time and will run each participant $20 per hour.

“We are excited to have our expert professionals help social, corporate and league groups in Columbia hit a bullseye in a safe, fun environment,” said Craft Axe Throwing co-founder Jake Jensen on the Craft Axe website.

According to the FAQs on their website, you must be at least 10 years to throw and anyone under the age of 18 will need adult supervision. If you’re worried about how to throw the axes, their AXEXPERTS will be more than happy to teach you how to throw before all sessions and will make you aware of rules to ensure your experience is as safe as possible.
