First of all, the Buffalo Grove location has closed and is relocating to Arlington Heights. The employee team was flexible and allowed us to use our Groupon at their Aurora location. Our Axe Coach was Steve, who was friendly, patient and personable. We wished they had water or soda available for purchase. Even a pop vending machine installed would be a plus.

  • Guests will be throwing axes in a common area shared with other participants during each public session (90 minutes).
  • Guests are first guided through the basics of axe throwing by certified staff. After the safety introduction is complete, contestants go ahead and Axeplode against their targets and compete against their friends. Safety officers are present at all times.
  • Fast-paced action and adrenaline make this axe-throwing experience one of a kind—bystanders and groups of friends will be hooting and hollering every time an axe flies through the air. This exciting experience makes every 90-minute session a scene of action, adventure, and heroism that your group will be talking about long after the last axe has hit the bullseye.
  • All equipment included
