WELCOME CAMPERS! It looks like some of our camp counselors read that weird book they found in the forest, and now Camp Slashers is plagued with monsters! You will need to be trained on proper axe-throwing self-defense (and other fun games) to protect yourself from the undead!

Slashers is a horror-themed axe-throwing bar in Costa Mesa. Enjoy playing our axe-throwing version of battle stations, tic-tac-toe, alien invasion, and other fun games while you drink some of our hand-picked craft ales.

Owners and creators Luke and Madison Rhoades are theatre people who always try to elevate their experiences with special effects, stories, and immersive atmospheres. After opening Cross Roads Escape Games in 2016 and garnering accolades such as USA Today’s Top 10 Best In The Nation and the prestigious Room Escape Artist’s Golden Lock Award, Cross Roads has set a benchmark in immersive entertainment with hits like The Hex Room and The Weeping Witch.

"I see axe throwing the same as I saw escape rooms years ago: a fun and great idea, but lacking in immersive sets and theatrical elements," says Madison Rhoades. "We plan to take Slashers Axe Throwing & Ales to the same elevated level as Cross Roads Escape Games." Slashers is the only venue in Southern California to offer hatchet and big axe throwing, interactive projected targets, and draft beer.
