Axe Throwing FAQ

What is Axe Throwing?

Just like the name implies, we throw axes and pretty soon you will too! Axe throwing is a really fun, social, and satisfying way to spend some time while you’re in Whistler. It’s a great activity for small groups or large groups as well.

Our team at Forged will teach you everything you need to know and you will not believe how satisfying it is when you hit your first bullseye!

  • Chevron down Is there an age limit?
  • Yes. You must be over 10 years old to participate and have a legal guardian accompanying you if you’re under 18. While we’ll make every effort to ensure young players are having a good time, it’s possible that your 10 year old might not have the strength needed to make it happen.

  • Chevron down Do you sell liquor?
  • No we do not. We are not a licensed premise so we cannot sell liquor or allow BYOB. Please don’t shotgun beers in our parking lot!

    However! We are right beside two amazing breweries: Coast Mountain Brewery and Whistler Brewing

  • Chevron down Where can I get food?
  • Axe throwing can build up an appetite, trust us, we get it! Luckily there’s lots of food options in Function Junction!

    Wild Wood Cafe is just down the street from us and it’s delicious! They make awesome pastas, sandwiches, and breakfasts.

    Functional Pie is an amazing pizza place located just down the street in Function Junction! The quality of the pepperoni will blow you away!

    Pure Bread is a few doors down and their baked goods are unreal!

    Olives Community Market is two doors down and they have a selection of sandwiches and a salad bar.

    Whistler Brewing has some delicious pizzas and sammys.

    Delish is a quick walk down Alpha Lake Rd and they always have a wicked lunch special on.

    Just beside Delish is an awesome bakery called 200 Degrees, you HAVE to try their pretzel bread buns, so good just on their own but I bet they would make an epic sandwich.

  • Chevron down Can I wear shorts/leggings/yoga pants/short shorts?
  • Oh yeah you can! Rock those shorts and show off those sweet leg gainz you’ve been working on! As long as you wear closed toe shoes and your attire isn’t horribly offensive to us you’re welcome to be comfortable!

  • Chevron down Can I leave my kids there while I go to the brewery?
  • No….

    We love hosting awesome axe throwers who are over 10 years old but if they’re under 19 they do need to be accompanied by at least one chaperone for the group. We’re awesome axe throwers but not great baby sitters.

    If you have children under 10 they’re more than welcome to hang out at Forged while you throw some axes but they’ll be unable to participate in the activity. It is loud at Forged so wearing ear plugs is a good idea. We do have child sizes available but they won’t fit everyone.

    Unattended children will be fed Red Bull, taught how to chop down furniture, given an axe, and let loose on your living room.

  • Chevron down Do you have axe throwing gift certificates?
  • Yes we do! Give us a call and we can hook you up with one. The most popular gift certificates are for our Small Party, Large Party, or XL Party bookings.

    These gift certificates are perfect for bachelor parties, office holiday parties, father’s day, or any other time you want to let someone know that they kick ass!
