We had a really great experience at Bad Axe Throwing in Burlington. Alex 'The Jolly Ginger' did a fantastic job providing helpful advice and kept everybody engaged even with the large group of us. I will definitely be back to throw down at Bad Axe Throwing!!

Went axe throwing here for a bachelorette party a few weekends ago and had the best time! It takes some getting used to, but once you do it a couple of times, it's addictive, the games are really fun too. Plus the instructor was really cool, hospitable and sexy, her name was Edyta ask for her if you go!!



We had a great time at the Bachelorette! This place is amazing and so much fun! I can't wait for the league to start up! Thanks Alicia!
