Included are two additional activities...Tomahawk and axe throwing and slingshots
Tomahawk Throwing is an approved BSA, Boy Scouts of America activity
You will receive thorough instruction on proper throwing techniques and safety aspects of this ancient sport.  Back in the 5th century the Franks of Western Europe perfected axe throwing while utilizing this skill in battle and soon after the Celts started throwing competitions.  For more info on the History of Axe Throwing go to       
There is a 24 target axe throwing course on site with both stationary and moving targets. This is GOOD STUFF !!
With axe throwing you’re tapping into something that will make you feel very different by the time you Jumanji.

Jumanji Bullseye Club
There's always something special about hitting the bullseye
The slingshot was the first product WHAM-O made, and it gave the company its memorable name. “WHAM-O” was the sound the slingshot’s projectile made when it hit its target

My father made me my first slingshot from a branch and inner tube.  My second slingshot was a WHAM-O. Redhead kid with a slingshot in his back pocket...That was me. Slingshot $1.50   Bag of marbles 15 cents,  The sound of an exploding bottle....Priceless.
