Located on a quiet residential street in Paris’ 13th arrondissement, Wildness is the second axe throwing room to open in the city. For a price of 18€ per person, Parisians can spend an hour tossing an assortment of 450 to 900 gram axes at a wooden target from a distance of three to four meters.
The space, which has two rooms with eight axe throwing tracks, as a well as a juice and refreshments bar (with no alcohol, unlike in the US where axe-throwing places are often bars), opened in early summer 2018. It's a real trend, with other axe throwing rooms are popping up across France, everywhere from Lille to Bordeaux to Strasbourg.
Wildness hosts a competitive axe throwing league on Tuesday evenings, but anyone can sign up for an individual or group session online for an hour of axe-throwing fun.
