Kraken knows how to throw a birthday bash! From the moment we stepped into the axe-throwing lanes to the exhilarating experience of letting loose in the rage room, every minute was an absolute blast. Thanks to the awesome staff and unique setup, Emmy's birthday was one for the books!

Mike L. - Axe + Rage Birthday Party

Hands down one of the best birthday party I've ever had! Mixing axe throwing with the rage room was pure genius. The thrill of hurling axes followed by the cathartic release of smashing stuff – it was like therapy with a side of adrenaline. My friends are still talking about it weeks later!

Emmy M. - Axe + Rage Birthday Party

Axe throwing for a gender reveal? Absolutely epic! They helped us pull off the most memorable reveal ever. The excitement in the air as we aimed our axes at the balloons was palpable, and when we finally hit the target, the burst of colored powder filled us with joy and excitement. Thank you for making our special moment truly one-of-a-kind!

Brian T. - Gender Reveal!

What a unique and thrilling way to celebrate our baby's gender reveal! The adrenaline rush of throwing axes combined with the suspense of popping balloons made for an unforgettable experience. The staff provided the perfect setting for this exciting moment, and our guests couldn't stop talking about it!

Jessica M - Gender Reveal!

Planned my brother's surprise birthday party here. It ended up being a great experience for everyone. I had never thrown an axe before but ended up being easier than I expected. Never thought I'd see a place where you could order alcohol while throwing axes. Lots of fun!

Greg H - Birthday Party

What a fun way to celebrate a great quarter! The staff was super friendly and made sure we were taken care of. They're very detailed and attentive in teaching us how to throw the axes. Will definitely be booking this again..
