That’s right it turns out Axe throwing is a thing and Perth is getting the biggest facility to do it at, in the southern hemisphere.
While we don’t live in a ‘hunger games’ society and/or are yet to be overtaken by zombies it seems most of us wouldn’t have much use for axe throwing. But none the less MANIAX Axe Throwing will open its doors to the 940sqm purpose-built warehouse this September – making for a lot of axe throwing.
Since opening Australia’s first urban axe throwing warehouse in Sydney in 2014, MANIAX Axe Throwing has sent shockwaves through the otherwise common choice of group entertainment options down under. Also taking Melbourne and Brisbane by storm, it was bound to throw its way to the west.
Owner Adam Schilling came across the highly successful and alternative sport when on holidays in Canada and thought it just might be a hit over here.
“I wanted to give it a try, but it was completely booked out. It was then I knew all this craziness might just excite our local Aussie market and be something huge. I was determined to bring it back to Australia,” Schilling expressed.
“It started with beers, a bunch of different types of axes, mates and some knocked up axe targets in my backyard. We lived in Coogee in Sydney at the time, surrounded by apartments.”
The Perth location is set to hold up to 120 people. It will be the first of the chain to have two of their iconic 4-tonne trees and also the first to have a VIP “Chamber of Steel” for meetings, private functions or if punters want to kick on beyond their axe throwing session. MANIAX guests can also step up to the “Chopping Block”, an elevated viewing platform where you can watch the throwing action from up above.
