We were 4 friends, had lots of fun!! Each session last for 30 minutes! In the beginning they show you different ways of throwing the axe! Ask for the story behind the grandma style! Bottom line Its a must!
This is really so much fun.(And it is 100%safe if you follow the rules). I was totally useless at the start, before and during the tuition. By the end I had won our mini contest. I would have enjoyed it even if I hadn't one,...More
I still can’t believe how much fun this is. I feel like I’ve been telling everyone to go throw some axes for weeks, even people who’ve said “I won’t be good at it” or “I don’t think I’m aggressive enough” have all thought it’s great...More
Went to the pop up they had in February at the Biscuit Factory in Leith, for valentine's, actually went on the 14th too! Me and the wife had a great time, so much fun throwing axes. Will definitely go back at some point.
We went along for the wife's birthday. The guys are great and the axes are sharp. A lot of fun but also all very safe. Immensely satisfying. Well worth every penny and will definitely be going back! Her'es hoping they make it permanent one day!
I booked this activity as a bit of a laugh for mine & my husband's wedding anniversary. I didn't think I'd be any good, having thrown nothing heavier than a wet sponge in my life, but you get taught so many different types of throws...More
We have been a few times to BlackAxe and its getting better and better. The instructors are great and will help you with any question you may have. The atmosphere is fun but also very safety conscious.
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
