For adventurous visitors looking for a unique way to have some fun on the Grand Strand, a new attraction with locations in Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach definitely hits the mark. That’s because at Jack Axe Throwing, the traditional lumberjack competition of axe throwing is made available to the masses, allowing anyone over age 12 to try their hand at a sport some might say resembles a game of darts on steroids.
Never thrown an axe before? Not to worry — before you and your vacation crew start your game at Jack Axe, one of the business’s skilled trainers will outfit each player with the proper size axe, as well as teach competitors how to properly hold it. Your instructor will then offer advice on the best methods and proper form for delivering it to the bull’s-eye on your lane’s wooden target (which is marked with concentric rings, reminiscent of an archery target). The rings closest to the center of the target reward the throwing player with the most points, and the competitor with the highest point tally at the end of each round is declared the winner.
While guests are urged to dress comfortably, Jack Axe does have one requirement regarding players’ attire — competitors must wear closed-toed shoes. (After all, it’s not hard to imagine why flip-flops or sandals might present a risk if an axe were to be accidentally dropped during play.)
Jack Axe is a great option for private events like birthday parties, company gatherings, bachelor or bachelorette parties, and family celebrations, and the business will soon even offer league play. An hour-long round of axe throwing is priced at $25 per person, and parties can reserve their spots in advance online, or simply walk in and claim an available lane.
The business’s two Grand Strand locations can be found at 4801 South Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach and at 3606 Highway 17 South in North Myrtle Beach.
