'Bowling 2.0': Urban Axe Throwing With BYOB Comes to Dallas

Bad Axe Throwing Coaches

With more than 18 locations across North America, Bad Axe Throwing is opening its doors in Dallas this weekend. 

Originally established in Canada in 2014, Mario Zelaya, President & CEO of Bad Axe Throwing, transformed a niche activity into one with mass appeal. His background and experience building marketing campaigns & technology for Fortune 500 clients, is of the key underlying success factors in the growth of Bad Axe Throwing. Doubling in size in just over a year, their concept of urban axe throwing is rapidly sweeping the nation with locations in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, Oklahoma City and Minneapolis. Next on his target list: Dallas. 

Serving Americans with quality, active-entertainment, Bad Axe Throwing coaches are trained in axe throwing techniques and safety guidelines. They provide private events for groups looking to celebrate a birthday, bachelor/bachelorette party, corporate event or any other special occasion. "We haven't officially opened up our doors yet and we're already getting people booking events with us in Dallas. It's a testament to how popular we've become across the US," says Zelaya. Each location creates a fun and inviting atmosphere, built on the belief that anyone can learn a new skill regardless of age or skill. 

People are looking for new forms of entertainment that are interactive and completely different. Axe-throwing is really a traditional hobby that we've turned into a unique experience. It's a perfect way to celebrate any occasion. I like to call it 'Bowling 2.0.'
