Cape Spritz is Cape Town’s iconic drink + 3 places to try it
Throw an axe, shoot a crossbow with Weapons on Wheels
Be viking for a day: WoW brings the weapons and targets, you bring the squad
Last updated: 10 November 2022
Axe-throwing is all the rage right now, and there's a badass new adult party collective that arranges all the fun (with a touch of danger) safely. Weapons on Wheels (WoW) brings the battleground, the axes and the targets to you and your crew. They are the “only full mobile projectile party solution in the world”, they say. All you need is to do is show up and be open to trying something new.

THROW AN AXE AT YOUR EX
If axes are not your weapons of choice, try throwing knives or ninja stars. Or, embrace your inner Katniss and learn to shoot a crossbow.
WoW offers a range of weapon-throwing packages, including Traditional Axe Throwing, Ninja Warrior and the one you might want to try most, Throw an Axe At Your Ex.

TRY THE POP-UP WEAPON-THROWING EVENTS
Weapons on Wheels also hosts pop-up replica events of the packages they offer at indoor and outdoor venues around Cape Town. Simply make a booking online and show up. They bring the weapons and targets. The pop up events are convenient because you can come alone or with a whole squad.
Like the Axe-Throwing Braai once-a-month event: “Where we throw axes like Vikings,” says Monique Nell. The venue for this is Muizenberg, but there are other locations coming up.

DESIGN YOUR OWN WEAPON-THROWING PARTY
WoW hosts groups from 1 to 100, so one of their events is a nice activity for special birthdays and end-of-year functions. WoW brings the weapons, targets and training to the party, plus they can customise your event and help you choose a venue that works for weapon throwing. Just get in touch with the WoW team to discuss what you need and to get a quote: 065 688 1844, email@example.com.

THROW DOWN SAFELY
Bachelor and bachelorette parties and celebrations will love WoW. The organisers know how raucous they can sometimes get, and good thing the WoW team are as serious about safety as they are about having fun. Each session starts with a group safety and training induction and resident WoWsters (weapons masters) are on hand throughout to offer tips and keep everyone safe and having a good time.
