Firehouse Urban Axe Throwing is preparing to open its new facility inside the Paddock Mall this week.
The company, which was previously located at 1043 NE 14th Street in Ocala, will officially open the doors to its new location at the mall (3100 SW College Road, Unit 199A in Ocala) on Friday, April 15.
According to the company, a majority of customers are first-time axe throwers. Once a customer arrives, an “axe-pert” coach will give a short introduction on axe throwing while also providing various tips and tricks.
Once customers get comfortable with throwing an axe, they will be able to test their accuracy with different games such as Round Robin, Tic Tac Toe, Connect Four, Horse, and Countdown.
Sessions are available for one hour, one and a half hours, and two hours. The cost per person ranges from $24 to $42 for adults (ages 16 and older), and $10 for minors (ages 15 and under). According to the company, one adult payment is also required for every participating minor.
All customers are encouraged to wear comfortable and nonrestrictive clothing. Close-toed shoes are required, and the company offers rental shoes and socks on-site.
The facility will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, and the hours of operation for the rest of the week are as follows:
- Wednesday: 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. (last booking at 8 p.m.).
- Thursday: 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. (last booking at 8 p.m.).
- Friday: 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. (last booking at 10 p.m.).
- Saturday: 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. (last booking at 10 p.m.).
- Sunday: 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. (last booking at 6 p.m.).
