As a student, there are many things that can leave you feeling frustrated, annoyed or just fully exhausted.
It would probably be an understatement to say that at times it feels like it hasn’t been your day, week or even your year, to quote a certain timeless TV series.
So what can you do when you feel like finally cutting loose and getting rid of that negative energy?
Now, while no one can deny the thrills of the Manchester clubbing and night scene, one of the best solutions to the needs of the modern student comes in the form of Whistle Punks Urban Axe throwing.
This rustic activity centre, based in Deansgate’s Great Northern Warehouse is the perfect place to let loose all your pent up emotions.
The experience one of the most powerful yet perhaps worrying exciting adrenaline rushes you’ll ever have.
The best part about this feeling is that it is not short-lived. From the second you first feel your hand on the axe handle to the end, when the employees will most likely be trying to pry it from your hands, you have a constant feeling of excitement and almost childlike giddiness.
Whistle Punks have just recently celebrated their fourth anniversary of opening in Manchester, which highlights their expertise in entertaining their student demographic.
Their simple yet rustic looking centre is extremely quaint but of course, extremely safe. This alleviates all previous fears of what many can imagine could go wrong in such a place.
The relaxed but confident nature of all the assistants also allows for a more enjoyable and entertaining evening. It’s for this fact that the strongest part of the experience is not the joy that is sparked from the strange fun of burying an axe into a wooden target. It is rather found in the form of the amazing employees of this recreation centre.
These people will make it their goal to make sure you have a brilliant time. They’re legitimately friendly and interact with every member of your group in a relaxed manner, all the while still keeping the safety of every participant as the foremost priority.
And of course, they’ll teach you how to throw one of their axes perfectly and hit that bulls-eye.
This is not an experience that anyone, let alone students, should miss out on. Attending a session at Whistle Punks is guaranteed to be an event that, no matter who you are, you won’t soon forget.
So if you’re feeling tired of work and you feel like getting some relief while reclaiming your enjoyment with encouraging and fun assistants, then you need to go.
Go and get the adrenaline rush that will make you feel like the Vikings and shield maidens of yore and have fun in what is possibly the best student attraction in this city.
