Sessions are 60 minutes long in total and it is safety first here at Alpha Wolf, so you must arrive at least fifteen minutes before your booked slot. We will brief your pack on the essential dos and don’ts and then whether you are a seasoned Valkyrie or Viking, or an absolute beginner, our trained instructors will have you throwing axes like Odin himself in no time.
We cater for 8s and above however all under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. The adult MUST be throwing on the same lane as the under 18s.
Lanes are limited to 6 players, however if you have more friends than six, we will certainly do our best to put you next to the rest of your pack, or we may place you on our competition lanes which hold 12 players. (We cannot guarantee placement on the competition lane unless the whole lane is booked out)
Lone wolf?Don’t worry! Book yourself on to a session and we can find you some friends. Failing that, if we are not busy, I’m sure our instructors will throw with you… any excuse to slack off from working!
During busy periods you may be asked to share a lane. Our instructors will introduce you then you will be cheering on your new friends in no time!
Feel free to book a whole lane out at a discounted rate.
Want to book the whole venue out for team building, stag and hen parties, birthdays etc? Contact us and we will be in touch to discuss.
Booking is essential to avoid disappointment, however if you do just turn up and we have the space then we will certainly welcome you and an instructor can book you in on the spot. Strictly no walk ins after 6pm on Fridays and Saturdays, an all dayer and axe throwing is a terrible idea!!
Can’t make your booking?Unfortunately, we cannot refund your sessions so please check your details at times of booking…..however we understand things happen. Contact us at least 48 hours before your booking slot, then we can re book or convert your sessions to gift vouchers. Late commers may still get to throw providing you turn up for the slot booked and your instructor allows it. No extra time will be given unless you book an extra slot.
Wear non-restrictive clothing.Fancy dress is not only welcomed but encouraged providing you can throw safely and will not offend anyone. Providing you have something on underneath, any offensive clothing will be asked to be removed, if you do not have anything underneath then you may be asked to leave. Most importantly, strictly no open-toed shoes. We are not foot lovers, and some people have the worst feet.
We have no spectators in our throwing area but we do have a large seating area for your pack members to hang out while you throw.
We believe axe throwing should be enjoyed by everyone, that includes all sexes, ages, body shapes, races, and abilities. We are fully wheelchair accessible and would welcome everyone to come give us a go. Should you have any special requirements (sensory or visual needs) then please contact us for more details and we would be happy to work with you to ensure the best experience possible.
There is no parking at the venue but there are car parks within an axe throw of us, checkout our location page for a guide on how to get to us and locations of all the closest car parks.
Snacks, cold and hot drinks are available to buy during your session. Fancy something a bit more than snacks? We can point you in the direction of all the good fast-food places in town and you can have it delivered to the venue. We have a large seating area for you guys to hang out and eat or take the food onto the lanes with you.
Thor likes to drink mead and throw axes… unfortunately we would rather you did not. if we suspect you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may be asked to leave without a refund. Just turn up sober throw axes like a champ then go drink. There is a pub literally across the road, so you will not have to wait long.
You must use our house axes while you visit. No, they are not pretty but we keep them sharp and they will do the job.
Pregnant women should be ok to throw as axe throwing is relatively low impact. We advise you to ask your GP first if you have any concerns. Also, if your water breaks whilst in the Venue then you must name the child Axel… sorry but it is a law I just made up.
If you are worried a pre-existing health issue may be aggravated by throwing, then we advise you to speak to your GP before your visit.
Axe throwing can be competitive but is best when everyone is having fun. Here at Alpha Wolf, we strictly do not tolerate abusive or argumentative behaviour towards staff or other throwers. Culprits will be immediately asked to leave with no refund.
Covid is getting us all down, but we will follow all government guidelines as they are released. Cleaning and sanitizing of all equipment will be done in-between sessions ready for new throwers. If the guidelines state masks must be worn unless you can prove you are exempt and have the relevant documentation. No masks..no axes.
If your sessions are canceled because of the government guidelines or we cancel your sessions in house then gift vouchers will be issued to use at a later date.
