Axe throwing is all the craze right now with venues popping up all around the world. The popular target sport involves players standing behind a foul line, approximately 10-12 feet from a target as they try to throw their axe into the bullseye. Well now, the craze is growing in Muskoka as Huntsville has two of its own axe throwing experiences that are truly unique to the area.
Bush Poker puts a local Muskoka twist on the typical axe throwing experience, taking you into the forest with two different ways to perfect your toss.
Traditional Axe Throwing is a great introduction to the activity, with a guide taking you for one hour of target practice and games. The Bush Poker Course takes traditional axe throwing and turns it into an adventure. Guides will take you on a short stroll through the Muskoka forest to be challenged by their 16-station course. Throw from a stump, walk the plank, hit targets and more fun challenges await. True to their name, you have the option of incorporating poker (the card game) into the Bush Poker Course. Participants get cards at each station and try and make their best poker hand, creating a game within a game that always seems to get super competitive.
Zig Zag Axe Throwing is an outdoor attraction, open to 18 years of age and older. Zig Zag features two enclosed 12 foot lanes, and can accommodate 4 players at once. Even if you have never tried the activity before, you and your friends are sure to have a blast as the certified axe master will teach you everything you need to know.
While on site submerge yourself in the stories, solve puzzles, codes, clues and problems and discover hidden secrets at the Zig Zag Escape Rooms! These escape cabins are challenging and fun but with a twist to ensure all can remain involved and enthusiastic throughout the adventure! These escape cabins emphasize teamwork and require you to work together to conquer the puzzles.
