Went there for a birthday and had a great time. Kelsey was an awesome instructor and kept everything interesting with various games and new techniques.
"Great time - Awesome staff!"
It was an amazing experience. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Can bring your own refreshments. Highly recommend.
"Fun evening with friends!"
Great evening. Fun activity that allows you to socialize with friends at the same time. Strocker did a great job showing us what to do and guiding us through the evening. Definitely an activity to do again.
"Great Place, Amazing Staff"
I had an amazing time here, it was my first time ever handling an axe and the coaches were extremely helpful and absolutely a good time. We played some fun games and the coaches were super encouraging. Relaxed atmosphere makes it so much easier to let loose and really give it a shot. Shout out...Read full review
"So much fun! Good for competitive people too!"
This was an awesome time! I really enjoyed it. It's great for competitive people and for people who just want to release some frustration too! Go with friends, family, work, birthdays, any type of party!
Went with a group from work and had a great time, even if we didn't stick many axes in the target. Lots of coaching from the Tom to make sure we knew what we were doing and we're having fun. Would go again and recommend it to anyone.
Bad Axe Throwing Ottawa was launched in the summer of 2015 and was featured in CBC, The Sun & the Ottawa Citizen for bringing the sport of urban axe throwing to the Capital! We're conveniently located just 2 minutes from the 417, just down the street from the Canada Science and Technology Museum.
We've become the popular, go-to destination for birthday parties, corporate events, team-building activities, bachelor/ette parties & private events. Our facilities were recently upgraded and we provide the ability to book the entire venue for your group. That means your party can have their event be completely private without sharing the space with other groups - an exclusivity that you wont find anywhere else.
Our incredible staff of axe throwing coaches is the sole reason we have over 500 5-Star ratings across Facebook, Google, Yelp & TripAdvisor. Our axe throwing coaches: Tom, AJ, Stroker, Mandy and other incredible staff will teach you the basics and help you hone your axe throwing skills. They'll then conduct fun & unique games, team tournaments and a final individual tournament to crown a champion!

What are the hours of operation?
If you'd like to make a booking, group events are by appointment only. But we also offer occasional walk-in sessions. Make sure to scroll down and check out our walk in calendar in advance to see when you can come hang out!
How can I pay?
We're a cashless business - not in the sense that we're completely broke, but we only accept credit cards on-site. This means no dinero por favor. AMEX, Visa, Mastercard are gladly accepted. Diner's Cards are too, if anyone still uses them.
What are the minimum and maximum group sizes for events?
We can host groups as small as 8, and if you're really popular, we can accommodate up to 70 of your family and friends!
Can I get a deal if I pay cash?
This isn't a garage sale! Kidding - sorta. Being the good citizens that we are, we "like" to pay our taxes. So unfortunately cash/money won't get you hooked up.
When should I book? How far in advance?
It depends on how much you love the person! haha! But seriously, if you are looking to book on a weekend, then you should book at least 4 weeks in advance. If you are looking to book on a weekday, then you should book at least 1-2 weeks in advance. It all depends: summer time has a bit more flexibility, any other time is pretty busy.
How long does axe throwing take?
Depends on how big your group is. As the old saying goes, "size DOES matters". For example, for a group of 8 to 12 people the axe throwing session will be around 2.5 hours. If you have a much larger group, your axe throwing event will be around 3 hours. You'd be surprised at how fast time flies by!
We accept all forms of credit cards.
Unfortunately we do not accept cash on site.
