My son mentioned Bad Axe Throwing to us and we decided to give it a try. We check the website and found some walk-in hours and those times actually worked quite well. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. It's a bit higher priced, but we had a lot of fun.

My husband and 3 daughters went here as a belated Father's Day celebration. I was just going to be a good sport and didn't expect to like it, but I did! We all had a great time. We got there at noon on a Sunday and were the first and only ones there. The woman who worked there gave us each good throwing instruction and couldn't have been nicer. The location is on a short street across from a parking lot and doesn't have a lot of signage.

We had a team-builder with 14 people - some are super athletes and some are NOT. Cody was our coach and he was so much fun! He arranged games for us to compete with each other and continued to coach us so we could improve throughout the night. Great fun for a diverse group!

It was easy to park and there was no wait when I showed up, really enjoyed the whole time and the person helping from Bad Axe seemed to really enjoy the group.

Walk-in sessions are stupid. There is only one lane open and they compile all groups into one. You end up being paired with strangers and are forced to share the one lane with everyone else (15 others when I was there). You end up getting to throw just a few times and basically have to pay full price (just $6 cheaper than usual)

I'm very sorry to hear that you weren't completely satisfied with your experience at our West Loop location! We do try to accommodate as many people as we can without overcrowding the lanes, and during our walk-in hours, it is not possible to reserve a lane for private use. As it is open to the public and all first come, first serve, we try our best to rotate everyone evenly through the rotation in order to get each person as many throws as possible and maximize the bang for your axe throwing buck. I hope you'll consider throwing with us again sometime, either by booking a private event or by trying walk-ins at our second Chicago location in Lakeview, which has much more walk-in availability during the week!

I had to give a time fo rmy visit but I want to be clear that I have not yet visited - trying to in JULY - Ive been trying to book a corporate event at this location when we come for a conference in July but with no local number its sadly proving to be impossible. We would also need catering and while the website makes it sound easy to do - the two cust svc reps from the corporate office all the way in Canada had no clue as to help me with that - they were very nice, but unfortunatelty couldnt help. Im curious how others who have had corporate events there dealt with this?

Going into this adventure, I wasn't sure what to expect. We had an awesome time and learned a few trick throws as well. Having teams and playing various games made the time fly by and we had a ton of fun.

We went to bad axe for a team building outing. There were some that were very nervous but with the help of our awesome Bad Axe host, everyone eventually was able to throw and score! It was a safe and fun activity and will do it again for sure!
