What is Axe Throwing?
Ax throwing involves throwing an ax at a target and trying to outscore your friends and family. The activity has been around for hundreds of years, however, it has always been a very small niche sport. The popularity of ax throwing has really begun to boom in the past five years or so.
Axeplosion is the most popular ax-throwing venue in the Chicago metro area. The location allows groups of up to 8 people in a single range that is equipped with two targets made from solid wood. The targets are labeled similarly to an archery target. The goal is to hit the bullseye, or as close to it as you can, with your over-the-head ax toss.
During your time in your range, you will be accompanied by a dedicated coach for the entire duration of your stay. The coach is responsible for teaching you how to properly throw the axes as well as how to practice proper safety methods. Axeplosion also allows guests to bring their own food and drink inside! Axesplosion offers a handy event guide for those who would like to know more.
