About
Think of playing darts in a bar, but instead of darts you’ll be tossing axes at wooden targets! This trend is picking up steam and replacing your bowling and darts leagues with something different. From your guys’ night out to the perfect activity for your bestie’s bachelorette, axe throwing is something ANYONE can do and EVERYONE should try!

I Showed and They Did Not
Jul 2020 • Friends
My experience didn't happen and Kraken didn't notify me of any cancellation. Also, to date they have not contacted me back to reschedule or refund my $150. On 20 June I reserved the rage room and open bar for 2 hours on 18 July at 5pm. NOTE: When I made the reservation I made sure they were reopen from COVID shutdown. On 18 July I shoulded up 15 minutes prior to find the doors were locked and no one was inside. I waited for 6 minutes past my reservation in front of their business with no luck. I even contacted the company through their website same on the same day and have not heard from them. I called and left a message on 23 July about my issue and still haven't heard from them. May I please get money back?!?!?

A Very different game- sport experience
Aug 2019
So yes, after bowling, minigolf, darts; what's next. This could be it ! The very primal movement of man - throwing an axe at an target - converted into a competitive game. Nice setup, right close the center of W,DC and fun experience for the first time.

Surely, $$ on the wallet, but also lots of fun and great experience.

A great night out for our bachelorette party!
Jul 2019 • Friends
Our bachelorette party had an incredibly fun time at Kraken Axes! Most of us weren't even drinking and we still rode the high of throwing axes! VERY EMPOWERING. Our coach, Angus, was enthusiastic and felt like a member of our party and by the end of our 1.5 hour reservation we were (more or less) better at throwing axes.

Tips:
- Book an arena ahead of time if you are a party of 6 or more. They are very easy to work with if you have to make changes.
- Wear closed two shoes. If you arrive in flip flops, they have galoshes you can wear, too. It's just kind of gross considering how many people have worn them before you...
- There is a bar on site serving beer and an ordering station for bar food from a nearby restaurant.
- Wear clothes you can move in. You move your whole body throwing axes.
- Register your friends' names and have them complete the liability waiver ahead of your reservation so you don't have to crowd the hosts' station when you arrive. Then you can just check-in and get to throwing.

Notes:
- It's noisy. Don't expect to have intimate conversations. You'll be screaming and rooting on your friends instead.

Can't Beat Throwing Axes
Jun 2019 • Friends
My local Dad's Group made a field trip to Kraken to try something new besides the normal activities in our area. It was a great experience. The location is smaller but very nice. There's a great energy in the place with all the groups having fun, cheering, and just generally having a good time. The staff are very friendly and work quickly to fulfill all of the guests needs. There is a coach assigned to every group who are very helpful in offering tips to improve your experience and plan games for the groups. Our coach Jonah (or Jonas?) was fantastic and entertaining. Having beer handily available made the experience even better, and food can be ordered from a nearby restaurant (I didn't order any, but some of our group did and said it was delicious). The location is easily accessible from public transportation or parking garage. Overall it was an awesome experience and I can't wait to return for more axe throwing goodness!

It’s throwing axes, how can it not be great
May 2018 • Business
So we went here as a group while we met out counterparts in DC for business. What a great time. Two and a half hours of throwing various axes. They have a small selection of beers and allow you to order food and bring it in. The provide a coach who helps instruct you on throwing technique and then essentially acts as the judge for various game you can play. Great time was had by all. They mentioned adding an outside beer garden and additional throwing lanes outside. Essentially, it’s dart on steroids.
