Did you know there is a new experience entertainment facility in Greenville?
Greenville’s first axe-throwing range, Craft Axe Throwing, brings the thrill of a traditional backcountry activity. The facility is located in Hampton Station, a stone’s throw from Birds Fly South and White Duck Taco. It’s just opened last March and already creating a buzz.
The 3,000-square-foot experience entertainment facility offers 10 throwing lanes where patrons can hang out. Each set up with two targets and scoreboards. Due to the popularity, they are planning to build extra lanes in the near future.
Axe throwing is like a dart league but on steroids. And if anyone thinks this is quite a dangerous game, it is not. Of course, there are numerous guidelines in place to try to ensure nobody will chop their head off. Interested to learn how to play this game? Read more
