Axe throwing.

From the classic Johnny Carson bit with actor Ed Ames way back in the day (1965), to 2019's John Wick Chapter 3, seeing an axe thrown and then making contact with whatever has always given me the heebie-jeebies.

Did you know there are actually professional axe throwers? Catch the highlights of the 2019 World Axe Throwing Championships here.

If you aspire to those kind of heights or maybe you just want to blow off some steam and get rid of some of that pent-up COVID-19 angst, then the Tri-Cities only mobile axe throwing range just might be for you.

AXE KPR is located at 8425 Chapel Hill Blvd, in Pasco and they're open Thursdays and Fridays from 5:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.; Saturdays Noon - 10:00 p.m. and Sundays 4:00 - 8:00 p.m. They are closed Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. You will be given a quick axe-throwing tutorial before you begin and closed-toe shoes are required to participate.

30 minute and 1-hour reservations are available online, pricing includes 30 minutes of unlimited throws for $25 or $10 for ten throws.

I'm not sure if it's a mission statement, but they have a dandy catch phrase, “The game is like darts, on steroids!”


Book your reservations here.

I enjoyed Mike Myers in, "So I Married an Axe Murderer" and one of the more spacey Pink Floyd tunes ever recorded was, "Careful With That Axe, Eugene".
