Release your inner Viking.

In addition to our portfolio of fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping track experiences, the Big Thunder events team also specialise in unique and obscure field events. What better way to get your team rallied up than to attempt axe-throwing - a highly skilled sport that is guaranteed to get your team talking.

Whether you’re a professional wood chopper or you’ve never held an axe before, this experience will be one to remember. While standing in front of a bullseye target, the aim is to launch the axe forward hitting as close to the middle as possible. Technique and timing are everything, meaning that everyone in your group can enjoy the thrill of the sport. You never know - the underdog of your team may just come out on top.

This addictive and somewhat satisfying experience will leave you hungry for more Viking adventures. Whether you add it to a full-day package or simply want to come and enjoy a session of axe-throwing, you won’t forget it.
