We take the safety of our guests & team members very seriously & offer Private Ranges for all group sizes. See prices & availability below.
Take a peep at the steps that we take to ensure your & our continued health & well-being.
Our policies will be based on what is recommended by the City of Philadelphia, and be assured, safety is our highest priority.
We are also just a Bar & Lounge with really cool decor. Come have a drink & play board games. No axe throwing required!!
If you have an axe throwing reservation, please plan to ARRIVE 15 MINUTES EARLY!
Also, you must wear or bring CLOSED-TOE SHOES (save the piggies :)).
All reservations are for One Hour & a Private Range
To book longer times, simply reserve the same range number in the subsequent time slot (can be done in the same booking cart by clicking ‘Add Another Booking’ before final checkout).
Private Range for Two | $29 per person
Available Monday through Wednesday
Private Range for Three | $29 per person
Available Sunday through Thursday & Saturday until 4 pm
Private Range for 4-10 | $29 per person

Groups larger than 20, please contact us at email@example.com.
Are you a bar where we can just come & have drinks?
Yes! Get your axe in here and have drink & some food and chill in our gorgeous lodge-like lounge. We have board games to help you relax by the fireplace.
How much does this kick axe activity cost & do I have to pay up front?
The cost is $29+tax/pp for a 60 minute range reservation and you pay when you make the reservation online. Normal reservations are fully refundable up until 24 hours before. Minimums or day of week availability may vary. See pricing above. Book HERE !
Walk ins - How do they work?
We welcome walk-ins! There may not be availability to throw axes but you can book for a later time and have a drink & some food! To guarantee availability, definitely reserve your Kick Axe experience online! ;-) When we do have walk-in space, the range times only start at fixed times, so you probably won't be able to walk in and start throwing - you'll have to wait until the next available start time. Kind of like walking in to the movies. :)
For current start times, click HERE and select the date you want to walk in.
If it shows spaces are available, your best bet is to just reserve the spots!
Do I need a large group to throw?
No! During COVID, those that don't have larger groups can book for however many they have. There may be minimums depending on the day of the week, but check the prices & availability at the top of this page.
Can we just get a range to ourselves?
Yes, during COVID, we are only offering private ranges. Minimums or day of week availability may vary.
More than 20? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We are all booking separately so we can pay for ourselves. Will we get to throw together?
Let us know if you are booking with other parties in the notes section at checkout (pick one name to say your are with). We will do our best, but the only foolproof way is to create one booking under one name.
I don't want to throw, I just want to come hang with my friends and watch. Do I have to pay?
We have had to change this policy to not allow non-throwers back in the range area due to space requirements. Sorry!
What ages can throw at Kick Axe?
Ages 8 and up as long as they have the strength and coordination to effectively throw a hatchet as judged by our Axe-tructors. All children must be under the immediate control of an adult! Officially, there must be 1 adult per 3 kids aged 8 - 14; kids 15 - 17 just need one adult per range. Ages 7 & under are not allowed on site. Sorry!
We have implemented a cool solution for kids who just aren't sticking the axe - they throw one of our foam axes and score wherever they hit the target! This way they can compete with the adults. Yay!
What is your Lateness Policy?
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO ARRIVE 15-20 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR START TIME!
If there is a reservation right after yours, your throwing time will just be shortened to end at the regular time.
Can we bring our own food and/or drink?
If you just want to bring cupcakes, you are able to bring them to any type of reservation (just as long as they're store-bought (health code)).
You may bring a store bought birthday cake but we require a Special Event table. Just email us at email@example.com. Please note we cannot allow ice cream cake or home-made cake or cupcakes ever (health code).
No BYOB is allowed, as we do have a bar on site.
Does Kick Axe sell alcohol & food?
We cannot have hangry, thirsty axe chuckers, so we have a full bar & delicious food menu! ID required for the alcohol.
Do you offer catering?
Absolutely! But only for groups of 20+ or reservations 2 hours or more. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
Birthday Parties, Team Building, Bachelor(ette) Parties... are they hard to arrange?
We make it easy! If you don’t want food or just want to bring in store-bought cupcakes, just make a regular booking.
If you plan on having more than two ranges or an event two hours or longer, and want a food or drink package you must book through our Special Events department! This way, we can guarantee that the ranges assigned to your group have space for food, are next to each other and start at the same time. Check out our private party page or email us at email@example.com to learn more!
Our Special Events department can also help you book for groups larger than 10, or if you want a longer session or two ranges next to each other. For weekend events, try to contact us as far in advance as possible!
Can I book an event outside of your normal hours?
What is your cancellation policy?
Oh, no you don't! You can't chicken out! Just kidding. You will get a FULL REFUND up to 24 Hours in advance of your time. Sorry but within 24 hours there are no refunds. :'(
If you book a Special Event, you will get a full refund up to 72 hours before your reservation.
Can I change or cancel my booking online?
Yes! Up until 24 hours before your reservation, just go to your confirmation email and click the orange View/Change Booking button. You will be able to change the date & time (if available) or cancel.
Will we be taught how to throw?
Yes, you will have an Axe Pro that not only teaches the rules, but coaches you on how to throw.
What should I wear? Do I have to wear a plaid shirt?
We have only two requirements:
*Closed-toe shoes (no high heels even if they are closed-toe)
*A shirt which gives you full range of motion.
We DO have plenty of plaid flannels for photo ops along with faux tattoo sleeves and beards for the full-effect. Maybe not during covid. You're welcome.
Are you handicapped accessible? Can I throw if I am in a wheelchair?
10-4 on both of those!
Can I bring my own axe?
Unfortunately, our insurance guy says no (this does not apply to leagues).
Can I buy Gift Certificates?
Yes, please? Kick Axe Gift Vouchers are fantastic gift ideas for that person who has everything (or just likes to do everything)! Plus, they will probably bring you! Buy one HERE.
Where can we find our photos?
We post each motley crew on our Kick Axe facebook page in albums by date and location. Please tag yourselves and share!
Would you like to Kick Axe again? At the end of each month, the group pic with the most likes, tags and shares wins a free session! Get on it!
Do Axe Pros accept tips?
Tipping is never required but always appreciated! Our Axe-tructors will do their best to make your experience fun and exciting. It is nice to show them some love! If you don't have cash, our Axe- Pros take Venmo (an awesome cash app) and/or have a Square reader for credit cards.
