IS IT SAFE?
Safety is our top priority. The National Axe Throwing Federation sets guidelines for axe throwing, pit dimensions, and safety parameters, which we follow carefully. Each throwing lane has a safety cage. Axe Masters give safety orientations and throwing tutorials to participants, and our trained staff oversees the lanes. And, if you’re not playing by the rules, we’ll boot ya.
HOW LONG DO I GET TO THROW?
Groups with reservations get 90 minutes of lane time, including a short orientation with your Axe Master. Walk-ins get 60 minutes including orientation.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Flannel, obviously. Costumes encouraged. But most importantly, CLOSED TOE SHOES. No flip flops or sandals. No exceptions.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
WILL I HAVE TO SIGN A WAIVER?
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Visa, MasterCard, Discover, AMEX, cash. We do not accept $100 bills or personal checks.
CAN I JUST WATCH?
You are welcome to come in and sit at the bar or in our designated hangout areas. Only guests who have paid, signed the waiver, and received a wristband are allowed in or near the throwing cages and arena tables.
DO YOU HAVE LEAGUES?
Oh yeah. Coming reaaaal soon.
WHAT'S ON YOUR MENU?
We have a full bar including beer, wine, craft cocktails, soda, and juice. Snacks include soft pretzels, beef jerky, and more. YUM.
SHOULD I TIP THE AXE MASTER?
We are a team-based facility. All tips are pooled and divided equitably in a valid tip pool arrangement. You can hand your tip to anyone, and the team as a whole will be rewarded. Thanks!
CAN I BRING MY OWN AXE? DRINKS? FOOD? DECORATIONS?
CAN WE BRING A PICTURE OF SOMEONE TO PUT ON THE TARGET?
Hah! Yes. The only restrictions on a cutout/picture is: A) it needs to be a non-human character, like a zombie or Homer Simpson, or B) if it depicts a human, that human has to be present in our facility to give consent. So it can't be a politician or a celebrity, unless you bring them with you.
IS YOUR FACILITY HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE?
Yes. The City of Milwaukee is still working on our ADA ramp approvals, but in the meantime we have wheelchair access via our overhead door. Please indicate on your reservation that you will have a guest in a wheelchair with your party. Walk-ins should call upon arrival to have the door opened for wheelchair access. The interior of the facility, including the restrooms, is fully accessible.
ARE KIDS ALLOWED?
AXE MKE is an adult environment. Everyone who enters must be at least 16 years old, and customers ages 16-17 must be accompanied by an adult.

Do I need a reservation?
do we pay now, or when we arrive?
You will need to provide a credit card number to make a reservation and hold spots; however, the credit card is not charged. Payment will be made upon arrival. This way, your group members can pay for their own spots when they arrive.
what is the cancellation policy?
A valid credit card number is required to reserve spots on a lane. Reservations can be cancelled or reduced without penalty up to 24 hours prior to the start time via the Reservation Management System, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 414.488.9340. Cancellations or reductions in group size made less than 24 hours prior to the start time will be charged the full per person cost for each unused spot. AXE MKE will charge the method of payment provided at the time of reservation for any unused spots not cancelled 24 hours prior to the start time, unless a different form of payment is provided.
What if we show up late?
You must participate in the Axe Master training before you can handle an axe. If your whole group is late, the Axe Master can do the orientation when you arrive, but you will lose more of your reserved lane time. If a member of your group misses the Axe Master training, he/she can purchase another one for $10 upon arrival.
how do i book more than one lane at a time?
The online system only allows you to book one lane at a time. Groups larger than 6 will need multiple lanes. Please call 414.488.9340 to make your reservation.
CAN I MANAGE AN EXISTING RESERVATION ONLINE?
hOW DO I BOOK A PRIVATE EVENT?
CAN I RENT OUT THE WHOLE PLACE?
CAN YOU DO ANYTHING SPECIAL FOR MY BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE PARTY? BABY SHOWER? BIRTHDAY? FUNDRAISER?
Absolutely! We've done engraved axes, golden axes, "pop the ballon with an axe" gender reveals, birthday piñatas, and even divorce parties. Give us a call and we'll help you make sure your celebration is AXE-tra special.
DO YOU SAVE LANES FOR WALK-INS?
No, walk-ins will be slotted in whenever a lane opens up.
WILL YOU COMBINE WALK-IN GROUPS?
On busy nights, we may combine walk-in groups with other walk-ins. The only way to guarantee that your group will have its own lane is with a reservation.
