Axe throwing is a great way to break the ice and introduce yourself to someone new in a relaxed, engaging way. Axe throwing can help you learn more about your date, including a bit about their strength and character when faced with a new challenge. Tomahawk Axe is located in Smokey Point and is the only indoor ax-throwing facility in Snohomish County. With 12 lanes and anti-bounce borders, it’s a safe and fun way to mix up date night!  Tomahawk is currently open Thursday – to Sunday, and each lane can accommodate up to 5 throwers.
