There’s no doubt that many of us here in Singapore deal with stress ever so often. Some might choose to unwind at the beach, while others may find that day out with friends at a chio cafe does the job.
But if you prefer to let off steam in a more cathartic way, head to Axe Factor. Tucked away in a quiet corner of our concrete jungle at the Grandstand, this hidden gem is a place where you can wield axes and fling them through the air – without breaking any laws!

Popular overseas, axe throwing is a sport where you can, quite literally, throw axes at a wooden target board as Thor would his Stormbreaker in Infinity War. It’s quite thrilling, really – nothing quite makes you feel like a superhero than holding an actual badass weapon.
That being said, there are plenty of precautions at Axe Factor to make sure that the safety aspect remains on point. Separating each of their 10 throwing lanes are mesh wire nets so you won’t have to worry about hurting the person in the next lane.
There’ll also be a briefing by an “axe-pert” who’ll bring you through safety measures and guide you through your first axe throw.
Each session lasts 1 hour, which is enough time for you to pick up the sport and eventually, hear the satisfying thud of your axe hitting the bullseye of the target board. Picture your ex on the board if you will – whatever helps with your aim.
Sessions are priced at $30/person if you’re coming alone or as a pair – a worthwhile price if you’ve been scouring for opportunities to flex your macho skills to wow your date.
Alternatively, go with a group of friends to get more affordable rates of $80/group of 3-5 people, which makes out to be $16-$26.70/person.
To spice up your next corporate bonding session or birthday party you can also book their private event room with optional add-ons like a personal coach, VR games, and karaoke. Find out more here!
There’s a certain joy that comes with wreaking havoc without having to worry about the clean-up or consequences. The Fragment Room did a good job at allowing us to let out our inner Hulk and now, we finally have somewhere to unleash our inner lumberjack as well.
