Ax Holes expands, offers more family fun

ROBERT PORR The Independent

Eric and Danielle Christensen started Ax Holes in Grand Island three years ago and have seen their business grow ever since.

“With three years of experience in business, we decided to make some exciting changes to provide our community with even more family fun,” said Eric Christensen.

He said they have expanded the business to include a kitchen, full bar, 30-piece arcade with a prize redemption counter, four mini-bowling lanes and projectors at their ax throwing targets, which offer 16 interactive games, at for the guests to have fun. Mini bowling, darts and ax throwing leagues are in the works.







A 30-piece arcade with a prize redemption counter is now part of Axe-Holes at 2300 N. Webb Road in Grand Island. Before the expansion, the venue not only offered ax throwing, but also had other activities such as archery, corn hole and giant Jenga to keep guests entertained.

Over the past three years, Ax Holes has become the go-to destination for ax throwing and unleashing, Christensen said.

Ax throwing is an ancient sport that has grown in popularity in recent years and is a fun way to unwind after a busy day and bring people together for a whole lot of fun.
