Atlatl Spear Throwing Experience - Niagara Falls

Where: Niagara Falls, Ontario

Age restriction: Minimum age for participation - 12 years
Channel your inner warrior! During this 60 minute Atlatl Spear Throwing Experience you'll learn to throw a simple and effective weapon that humans have used for over 30,000 years.

The Atlatl Spear has helped humans survive since the Upper Paleolithic period to the present day. The Atlatl gives additional thrust and velocity compared to spear-throwing and allows the hunter to stand farther away from the prey.

The throwing motion with an atlatl is the same as in throwing a rock or ball. The thrower holds the atlatl handle in the palm of their hand and pinches the dart shaft with their fingers. With a movement similar to pitching a ball, you’ll fling the shaft forward allowing it to slip out of your fingers as it soars towards the target.
