Axe Monkeys

By Chuck Rounds

Axe Monkeys is a new indoor axe throwing facility in Las Vegas. I understand that this isn't a show, but it is certainly entertainment. Axe Monkeys has 23 indoor axe throwing lanes, where you can learn to throw from the Axe Monkey trainers, practice and have fun. Located at 3525 E Post Rd Suite #110, Axe Monkeys is a place where you can channel your inner Lumberjack, Viking, ninja, or any other axe wielding character you can think of.

This is the premier axe throwing facility in North America. It is one of those ideas that I wish that I had thought of. There is something that is extremely satisfying about hearing that "thunk" as the axe blade firmly embeds itself into the log at the other end of the throwing lane. It seems to awaken something primal in your soul. This facility is going to become my "go to" place for all of my visitors and guests. More experienced throwers can choose from a supply of knives, throwing stars, tactical tomahawks, shogun axes and other throwing implements in stock.

Axe Monkeys is brought to us by Hypnotist Anthony Cools (whose show can be regularly seen at his theater at Paris Las Vegas.) This is bringing one of Canada's fastest-growing pastimes and we're very excited that Anthony, along with business partners Dave Calhoun, Ryan Chamberlain and Barry Tell, saw an opportunity to expand their successful indoor range operation to Las Vegas.

Axe throwing is already popular in Canada and Japan, and it seems that it should fit in just fine here in Las Vegas. Axe Monkeys is for ages 7 and older, and trainers offer instruction on how to safely throw an axe and enjoy the axe-throwing experience. The hours are 10 am to 2 am 7 days a week and they offer a 10% discount for Nevada residents with ID.

Everyone participating signs a waiver. Axe Monkeys will help you to celebrate birthdays, date night, bachelor and bachelorette parties, divorce parties, corporate events, anniversaries, Christmas parties, weddings and charity events. Beyond throwing at the pine logs, there are assortments of targets that can be purchased, as well as, customized targets that can be created especially for you...creating targets out of your photos of exes, enemies, and loved ones. Sadly, political figures cannot be created as targets.
