Kansas City is a true midwestern metropolis, attracting people from all over the country to see this city’s sights and sounds. Interestingly, it also has one of the best axe throwing scenes in the country. In this guide to Kansas City axe throwing, we’ll be looking at 5 of the top indoor throwing ranges. If you’re looking for a new pastime, this is it.
And the Top Spot Is…
If you’d like your throwing range to appear in the top spot, contact us to find out how you can rank as the best throwing range in Kansas City.
Blade and Timber: West Bottoms
The axe throwing industry is actually dominated by a few large chains, which may come as a surprise to some. But in fact, these national chains have perfected the formula and streamlines the whole experience. This makes it so that anyone can enjoy throwing axes without having to figure out each range’s unique structure.
While the names that usually come to mind when it comes to axe ranges are companies like Bad Axe and Bury the Hatchet, Blade and Timber is another big chain. They operate mostly out of the midwest, bringing this great sport to places like Kansas City. They have a pretty unique approach to axe throwing that you can’t find at many places, let alone chains.
Today, this range is rapidly expanding. They have a few locations already, and are quickly popping up all over the country. We’ll actually be covering another of their ranges later on in this list, so we’ll cover more of it then.
Bury the Hatchet
Bury the Hatchet is one of those chains that we mentioned, and they offer a great service for any level of axe throwing experience. When you find yourself looking for a new hobby, or if you just want to practice your throw, this is a great range to do it. They offer both atmosphere and plenty of lanes for either option.
While most ranges charge by the hour, running as little as $20 per hour, Bury the Hatchet charges in 2 hour session. So their minimum price for walk-ins is $40, but you get a 2 hour session. Like most ranges, as you add more people to your group, the more affordable it becomes.
They’re one of the only ranges in town that let you bring your own food and beverages, making them great for parties. They don’t allow hard liquors, but you can bring food and wine. They also have the space for bigger events.
Blade and Timber: Power And Light
Like we mentioned before, Blade and Timber has a few locations, as well as a pretty unique price structure. If you’re throwing solo and don’t mind being mixed in with strangers, they have a highly affordable walk-in price.
But the real option they promote is booking by the lane. Each lane runs $120 per 90 minute session and holds up to 6 people. So depending on how many people you take, you can be paying as little as $15 per person per hour.
Not only do they have individual lanes, but you can actually rent the whole space for larger events. Or, if you’re more competitive at heart, you can sign up for leagues and toss off in competition with other expert throwers.
Woodchux Axe Throwing
The last range on our list is a standalone venue, letting you throw to your heart’s content with a straightforward pricing scheme. They offer a pretty basic service, letting you simply throw without all the extras. This is great for anyone looking to just practice their skills.
Pricing is $25 per 90 minute session for every thrower. Each lane holds up to 6 people, and if you have a bigger group, you can even call for a multiple-lane discount. This is one of the best ranges for a simple way to practice this exciting new sport.
Mastering This New Sport
Just like in our guides to Columbus axe throwing and Miami axe throwing, we just went over the top 5 indoor throwing ranges in town. These ranges offer a bunch of different experiences, catering to different types of throwers. Whether you just want to silently practice your toss, or you’re looking for a high energy range, these places are a great way to start.
Throwing axes are becoming more and more popular in the US, replacing bushcraft axes, viking axes, and other types of axe. There’s just something satisfying when you throw axes in the center of the bullseye. Especially if you’ve properly sharpened your axe. It’s just another great sport, and anyone can give it a toss.
It won’t be long before we begin to see these ranges pop up in even the smallest of towns. Just like bowling lanes a few decades ago, axe ranges are going to become a normal part of social life. So get a head start now and master this new sport. That way, when it catches on even more, you’ll already be landing those bullseyes.
