Kick boxing move over! We’ve found another way to release tension. Throwing an ax is very satisfying. We tried it at Halimac Kentville.You would think throwing axes and beer would not be a good combination- but actually, they are! Halimac Kentville (where I test my skill) hosts leagues, groups and individual ax throwing play. Let me tell you-it feels pretty good. Freeing actually. Powerful.
Seems the trick is to grasp the weapon, er, I mean ax, behind your head tightly with both hands, step towards the target and throw. With any luck, the blade will bite into the wood and not bounce off it. No fear, though.You’re perfectly safe, even from neighboring players wild throws.
Founded by a pair of cousins, HaliMac Axe has locations both in Halifax and Kentville as well as franchising opportunities.Describing themselves as a chain ‘urban hip axe throwing lounges’ they are proud to serve local sourced craft beer and wine.
Groups from 2 to 40 can book the entire facility and . It’s a option for bachelorette,bachelor parties, birthday parties and ‘I just can’t take it anymore ‘ stress reduction soirees.
If you’d like to sneakily try it on your own-you can do that too.
There’s no age limit, but children should be strong enough to heave the axe. In fact, Halimac Kentville has instituted Family Fun Sundays -two adults and two kiddies under 13 can enjoy an hour of throwing for $39.95.
