Safe, Indoor Fall Fun with Stumpy’s Hatchet House

Safe, Indoor Fall Fun with Stumpy’s Hatchet House

A quarantined summer gave us pools, park strolls, and private cook-outs…but as the weather chills, are you looking for indoor fun while staying safe? Look no further than Stumpy’s Hatchet House for a sanitary, socially-distanced activity to ring in fall in the Garden State!

Stumpy’s began in 2015, when founders Mark & Trish Oliphant and Stuart & Kelly Josberger had a casual hatchet-tossing contest outdoors. The activity was fun, and—as long as everyone was cautious and sensible—safe. The couples soon began working together on a business plan, and the rest is history.

Stumpy’s first location in Eatontown, NJ was actually the first-ever indoor hatchet-throwing location in the United States. Now the chain has establishments across the eastern US, from Pennsylvania to Texas.

Given the nature of hatchet-throwing, Stumpy’s has always had a high commitment to the safety of their staff and guests—one thing that hasn’t changed during coronavirus. Groups have always been kept in their own private booths, never sharing space or equipment with others. Combined with 6-foot-minimum distancing, mandatory masks, and regular sanitation, locations do everything they can to give everyone a safe, good time.

The Hatchet Houses specialize in entertaining small parties, from birthdays to business trips. It could even be a fun twist on your bachelor or bachelorette party!

Locations in Stumpy’s home state of New Jersey can be found in Delran, Eatontown, Fairfield, Green Brook, Upper Saddle River, and Princeton. You can book your reservation online at your preferred spot.

To learn more about Stumpy’s Hatchet House, be sure to check out their home website.

For everything Garden State, keep up with HipNewJersey.com!
