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.
Summertime in the Pacific Northwest is all about venturing outside, and what’s more fun than a bicycle adventure with a date? Get the wheels spinning on date night with a bike rental from Velo Sport. Located downtown Arlington on Olympic Ave, Arlington Velo Sport is your go-to destination for bike rentals, sales, fittings, and repair. We encourage you to check out their shop, full of mountain, commuter, comfort cruiser, hybrid, fitness, and BMX bikes – plenty of options to take your date on the road (or trail). Invest in a new sport together, or simply rent a bike for the day! Arlington Velo Sport also has everything you need, from gloves to jerseys, shoes, helmets, socks, and jackets.
Flying a drone at Emerald City Drones is a fun way that you and your date can be competitive and learn the techniques of drone flying. Located in Smokey Point, Emerald City Drones is one of only a couple indoor drone flying arenas in the U.S., and the first in Washington State that offers First Person View (FPV) pilots the opportunity to fly in a 12,000 square foot indoor arena.
