Arrrgh! If there's one stag party activity absolutely, positively guaranteed to have you unleashing your most massive man-roars, it's axe throwing. C'mon. Actual throwing weapons, like they use in big screen hobbity action adventures, and dark fantasy dramas on HBO. You'll discover your inner battle dwarf in minutes. And that's not a sentence you get to say every day!
The action takes place in a properly atmospheric slice of field and woodland, part of our Bristol outdoor centre layout. Expert instructors will show you how to heft the axe correctly, using the weight of the head to throw it straight into a series of satisfyingly olde worlde targets.
Starting with a rough-hewn tree trunk (into which the axe heads bury themselves with a very pleasing thunk), and finishing on slimline bullseyes tied to medieval-looking poles, your challenge is to take out the targets in true Norse god fashion. The secret is to follow through with your arm, describing the path you want the axe to take after it has left your hand.
Bristol at night is just the ticket for an up for it stag party, with hotspots like Park Street still going at 3am and beyond. Pick up an axe, and you'll realise Brizzle ain't too shabby during daylight hours either!
