The Stars and Strikes entertainment center in Woodstock will be opening a new axe-throwing attraction in the coming weeks.
Lumberjack Alley will open to the public Friday, Sept. 24. Located in the area that formerly housed the facility’s restaurant, the new attraction will feature six targets for guests to hurl axes at, according to Stars and Strikes Marketing Director Lauren Van Buskirk.
“We thought it’d be a great thing to bring to the community, something new and different,” Van Buskirk said.
The idea for offering axe throwing at Stars and Strikes came from one of the company’s regional managers in Tennessee, who first added it to the bowling alley in Smyrna, Tennessee, Van Buskirk said. Since then, she said it has taken off, with a second location added at the center in Huntsville, Alabama before the company decided to put a Lumberjack Alley in Woodstock.
Targets in the Woodstock Lumberjack Alley will be available to rent in one or two-hour increments. Participants must be at least 10 years old, while all minors wanting to enjoy Lumberjack Alley will need to be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years old. Rental prices are per-person and are $21.99 for one hour or $32.99 for two hours, according to Van Buskirk.
“Our team is very excited to be offering this,” she said. “We’ve been getting a lot of positive reactions on social media.”
