About Master Axe

Master Axe is Chicagoland’s newest axe throwing facility, and we are coming out with a bang! Our main mission is to provide excellent customer service and leave a lasting impression on every guest that comes through our doors, meanwhile maintaining a safe and family friendly environment. At Master Axe, it is all about quality over quantity and it definitely shows! Due to our location being smaller than standard axe throwing facilities, it allows for a lot more one on one time with our associates, creating a better overall experience for you and your group. In turn, we hope to provide not only smiles, but CHAMPIONS.

PLEASE NOTE: Credit Cards ONLY. We DO NOT accept cash.

Days & Times

Hours of Operation

Friday - Saturdays | 2pm-10pm

Walk-In Schedule

Not Available [RESERVATIONS ONLY due to Covid-19]

At Master Axe, our walk in schedule is on a first-come, first-served basis. During scheduled walk in hours, you are usually throwing with other guests who have come in during walk-in hours and are not guaranteed a private lane with your group.

PLEASE NOTE: Credit Cards ONLY. We DO NOT accept cash.

Book Ahead!

In efforts to keep a family-friendly, fun, and safe environment for all of our customers, we have reserved later hours of operation for reservations ONLY. This is to ensure that there is not an extremely high volume of customers all at once, which would drastically take away from your experience at our facility. Making reservations, big or small, will ensure that you have a more intimate and exciting experience with your group members.

PLEASE NOTE: Credit Cards ONLY. We DO NOT accept cash.

We do not offer refunds or cancellations.

If you have to cancel please do it 2 weeks ahead of time and we can set you up with a future date at no additional cost. If you do not call with a two week notice you may be charged an additional booking fee.
