This is the ultimate adventure for those of you looking to step at least a toe outside of your comfort zone. Axe throwing is a new popular sport to the United States and is growing with each passing month. Think of darts or bowling with real life sharp axes. You hurl these axes in lanes towards wooden targets and try to hit the bulls eye. There are many games to play once you get the hang of sinking the axe into the wood.
We play regulation league games, tic tac toe, 21, Bullseye, knock out and even yhatzee with our games.
Yes. Throwing axes is similar to other target sports. Participants follow the instructions and safety rules explained by our Axe Masters and use common sense, throwing an axe is safe. Our experienced and highly trained staff are in the throwing arena with you at all times and monitor your throws for safety and guide you through the entire process. Only participants that have gone through our safety briefing and signed a waiver are allowed to enter the throwing arena. This includes people just wanting to watch the axe throwing. There is no passing of axes between players and players must follow specific instructions from their axe master.
Everyone throwing axes and watching will be required to sign the waiver provided. Each new participant will be required to go through a safety briefing with one of our Axe Masters.
Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign the waiver for them.
Age: We do not have a age minimum in place. However, we reserve the right to refuse service for anyone not acting mature enough to respect the safety rules. You must be 16+ to throw without a legal guardian present (The parent must sign the waiver) and 18+ years old after 8 pm.
Closed toe shoes are required!
*Special events can have this requirement waived but the party host must insure a 1:5 ratio with all party participants.
You may bring your own drinks and food. You can make it at home or bring it from a store, we don't care but we are usually hungry from throwing axes so plan accordingly. Just kidding, or am I?
We will have light snacks and non alcoholic beverages for purchase nat our front desk. If you want a full meal while you are here we can have food delivered from one of the many local establishments in the Lake St. Louis area. At your cost of course.
Beer and wine are allowed but NO hard alcohol. We would prefer you bring cans or plastic cups if possible since our floor is concrete. We just made your day didn't we? Be safe my friends.
Note: Your time starts once the Axe Master takes you back to the lane. If your party arrives late to your reservation we will try to accommodate assuming no one has the lane right behind your reservation. However, if the lane is booked behind your party you might lose some of your axe throwing time for arriving late.
We recommend your initial session be a 2 hour experience. We will provide everything you need to throw axes. However, closed toe shoes are REQUIRED.
Please arrive to your scheduled time 15-20 minutes prior for your safety briefing and axe throwing technique class.
Rates: $35.00/person for 2 hours OR $20.00/person for 1 Hour.
*Additional hours are $15.00/person based on availability.

We are located at 6233 Ronald Reagan Dr. Lake St. Louis, MO, 63347
We are in the plaza behinds the Jimmy Johns.
We are next to Complete Fitness and Subway.
If you can't locate us after all that then.... we don't know what else to tell you.
Our lanes are equipped to hold 6-12 throwers per lane. Currently, our location has 14 lanes. When you book online you will have to tell us how many people are coming for your reservation so we can plan accordingly. That number can change slightly but we require 24 hours notice for cancellations of the entire party or major number attending shifts.
Huge number shifts up on the day of the reservation may not have room during the time slot reserved and huge number shifts down on the day of may be required to pay a late notice cancellation fee of 50% of the cost.
Honestly, were not sure why you haven't already booked but...... if there is something else you want to know message us on Facebook or email us at LakeSTLAxeHouse@gmail.com.
We look forward to seeing you soon! We do have portable targets for mobile fun at parties call 636-265-1555 for more info.
Reservations will soon open for when the City, County, and State restrictions have been lifted.
We understand that this has been a trying time for everyone and we are very eager to get back to serving our community with a safe and fun activity for the entire family.
However, to do our part to keep everyone involved safe we are instituting the following changes to our booking procedure and store policies:
⁃ Parties will only be able to book for 1 hour at a time. Parties wanting 2 hours will need to make a separate reservation for the second hour.
⁃ Due to social distancing regulations still in effect and sanitation policies only 7 groups will be allowed to participate in the facility during any given time slot.
⁃ Parties will not, under any circumstances, be combined or will have to share a lane. Each party will be in effect purchasing a private lane for that time slot.
⁃ To maintain appropriate social distancing practices parties will be limited to 8 people or less.
⁃ For the safety of employees and participants reservations will have to be paid for in full through the online booking process in advance.
⁃ Walk in groups will not be accepted during this time so that we can ensure proper staffing and social distancing measures. Please reserve online via our 24/7 portal.
⁃ All waivers must be filled out in advance or via a personal cell phone device. Waiver stations in the facility have been removed for sanitation concerns.
⁃ Since availability is severely limited due to State mandates, our cancellation policy will remain in effect requiring 48 hours notice for a cancellation to receive a refund. Only 7 groups are allowed to participate at a time so a group not showing up the day of for a spot that could be filled with notice is detrimental. However, we understand emergencies and people getting sick so if something does arrive the day of your reservation we will handle these situations on a case by case basis.
⁃ Our facility will be sanitized every hour to prepare for the next incoming groups and lane usage will alternated to ensure proper sanitation time.
⁃ Axe Masters will maintain 6 feet of distance between the party and themselves for everyone’s safety.
⁃ Axes will be issued to throwers at check in time to ensure proper sanitation measures have been taken.
We understand the concern of reopening our facilities as they are not essential to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. We do not make this decision without thought or care for that situation. However, economically, our Veteran owned and operated local Small Business must open as soon as government mandates are lifted so that we may have a chance of surviving the financial fall out the pandemic has caused. We truly appreciated the love and support everyone has shown and pray that even if you don’t agree with our decision that you can understand our reasoning. We look forward to seeing everyone safe and happy once this is all over.
