BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Hatchet and Hops in downtown Buffalo really brought axe throwing into the United States.

"It's pretty unique when we first started, we were the first US based axe throwing company" Owner Andrew Piechowicz said.

The business, which is celebrating three years, decided to expand, bringing the party to you.

"You realize more and more people are asking 'I wish I could have this at my party, I wish I could have this here,' and you're like, I think I have a way" Piechowicz said.

The way is through the Axe Wagon, which brings the entire axe throwing experience to any location. It takes about 45 minutes to set up, and is available for events.

"We didn't want to sacrifice the quality of the experience everybody is getting," Outside Events Coordinator Alec Siskar said, "so whether you come to our bar, or if you come to this, you always get the exact same experience."

The Axe Wagon has rubber padding, and turf in the cage so safety remains a priority as Hatchet and Hops looks to continue on their zero incidents record.

"We've never had an issue that comes with throwing axes" Andrew Lloyd, Business Operations Manager said.

The first official event for the Axe Wagon will be at the Pils, Pierogi, and Polka Festival on April 20th. For more information on how to bring the Axe Wagon to your next event, visit their website here.
