Nestled in the heart of Southern California's horror and escape room scene is the brainchild of Luke and Madison Rhoades - Cross Roads Escape Games. Since its opening in January 2016 in Anaheim, this thrilling venture has captivated countless enthusiasts.
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 Escape Games has set a benchmark in immersive entertainment with hits like The Hex Room and The Weeping Witch.
Building on this legacy, Luke and Madison embarked on a new adventure, blending the excitement of axe throwing with the immersive flair of theatrical entertainment. In November 2023, Slashers Axe Throwing & Ales opened its doors in Costa Mesa, CA, promising an experience that transcends the ordinary.
Our camp counselors (skillfully trained axe coaches) are your guides, ensuring safety and fun in equal measure. They'll be by your side, teaching you the ropes and sharing tips to perfect your throw.
But there's more to us than just axe throwing. Step into our cabin, and you'll find a beer bar like no other. Themed drinks, show moments, and special effects create an atmosphere that's both eerie and exhilarating. It's the perfect place to unwind after an intense throwing session or to simply soak in the vibes of a classic horror movie setting.
"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."
At Slashers, every visit is a story waiting to unfold, a mini adventure to be had. Whether you're a horror movie buff, an axe-throwing enthusiast, or just looking for a unique night out, we've got you covered.
