Axe Throwing in Albany, NY!

General Info

Guests must be 18 years or older to participate individually. Minors between the ages of 13-17 must be accompanied by a person 21 years or older, who will be responsible for the minor as outlined in our waiver. For every two minors (13-17 years old), at least one adult (21 years or older) must provide active supervision during the throwing session. Minors under the age of 13 are not permitted to participate.

Yes! Our facility is ADA compliant, and our Axeperts will happily accommodate any of our guest’s needs. We strive to make axe throwing accessible to everyone!

You can bring your own axe if you are part of one of our leagues, but it must be inspected and approved by one of our Axeperts before it can be thrown at our facility. Please refer to the WATL rules for axe size requirements.

We would love for you to take pictures and videos of your axe throwing adventure (as long as everyone is being safe, of course)! Please share them on our social media pages and tag @thelazyaxe!

You do not need to bring your own axe. We have plenty of axes and know how to share! : )

No prior experience is necessary to participate at The Lazy Axe! Your axe throwing experience will begin with a short introduction from one of our trained Axeperts, during which you will learn the safety guidelines and basic techniques of axe throwing! Under the guidance and coaching of your designated Axepert, you will be sticking it in no time!

Absolutely! Beginning in June, we will run a shortened introductory season. Everyone is welcome to join — no experience necessary! As an affiliate of the World Axe Throwing League (WATL), our official WATL League will commence in July. Please sign up for our updates to receive more information as it becomes available.

Yes! You can purchase a digital gift card through our online booking platform.

Yes. Though tipping is not required, it is always greatly appreciated! Our Axeperts will always work hard to provide the best possible experience for our guests, so feel free to show them some love!

We have several parking spaces next to our entrance and plenty of additional spaces at the rear of our building.

We recommend wearing loose-fitting clothing that you feel comfortable moving in. Try to avoid any clothing that restricts the range of motion of your arms. Also, for safety purposes, all guests MUST wear closed-toed shoes (no high heels). Plaid flannel shirts are fantastic, but not required. 😉

Reservations

Most definitely! Axe throwing is the perfect activity for birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, divorce parties, gender reveals, team-building, corporate events, or any special occasion! If you are interested in booking an event and/or if you are interested in reserving the whole space, please shoot us an email at info@thelazyaxe.com.

Of course! We understand that our schedule might not work with yours, so please feel free to email us at info@thelazyaxe.com or give us a call at 518-250-9731 to set up a reservation outside of our normal hours. We’re happy to accommodate your group and coordinate with you as best we can!

We do allow walk-ins if space and staffing is available. We typically begin our sessions on the 1/2 hour and hour, so you may need to wait a bit depending on what time you arrive. The only way to guarantee an axe throwing session is by booking in advance. Walk-in pricing is $25 (+tax & fees) per person. Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes for your session!

We STRONGLY encourage all guests to arrive at least 15 minutes before their start time. Unfortunately, we cannot extend the end times for reservations to make up for lost time, as it would be unfair to the next group.

You can cancel or reschedule your booking up until 24 hours before your scheduled reservation. Contact us by phone to inquire about a cancellation, to cancel, or to reschedule. Unfortunately, there are no refunds for cancellations made within 24 hours of a reservation. No-shows will be charged the full price.

Food/Drinks

Unfortunately, we do not have a beer and wine license (yet), so alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the premises at this time.

Yes, you are more than welcome to bring your own food, snacks, and/or non-alcoholic beverages; we just ask that members of each group clean up after themselves at the end of their session.

If you are planning to host an event at The Lazy Axe, please contact us to discuss the best options for catering.

We do have non-alcoholic drinks and snacks available for purchase. If you are really hungry, you are welcome to bring in food to enjoy during your session!
