Frequently Asked Questions

How old do I have to be to play?
• Axe throwing: 18+
• Virtual reality: 10+
• Escape room: all ages, though 8+ is recommended
• Arcade and bowling: all ages

Do I need to make a reservation?
The Escape Room can be booked ahead of time through our website, but walk-ins are welcome.  All other attractions are first come, first served. Occasionally, The Den may be closed for a private event. Call or check our online reservations to learn more.

What should I wear?
If you are participating in axe throwing, Beat Saber, or bowling, you must wear closed toe shoes. Otherwise, we’re a casual establishment, and normal dress and footwear is cool with us…though we always encourage some Den-inspired plaid!

Can I bring my own axe?
We have axes on site, so please leave yours at home!

What about drinking and axe throwing?
You’re welcome to enjoy the bar after your round, but drinks are not permitted in the axe throwing lanes for our patrons’ safety.

Do you do shoe rentals for bowling?
Nope! You get to wear your own shoes. (We’re all happy about that!)

Can I book a private event at The Den?

Yes. We welcome private events, birthday parties, and group/company outings for groups of 8 or more. Call 231-534-6336 or email t[email protected]
