Atlatl Spear Throwing Experience - Niagara

Price for: 1 Participant
Where: Thorold, Ontario
Channel your inner warrior during this 60 minute Atlatl Spear Throwing Experience. Learn to throw a simple but 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 velocity and thrust 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 as if you were pitching a ball, you’ll fling the shaft forward allowing it to slip out of your fingers as it flies towards the target.
