What is the Chop Shop?
The Chop Shop is a recreational and competitive Axe Throwing range located at the Creamery in Kennett Square, PA.
We provide a fun, safe and engaging environment for our guests to experience the thrill and excitement that is axe throwing!
What is Axe Throwing?
Only the best use of your time ever.
It's a competitive sport. It's a recreational activity. It's a great way to relieve stress and a great activity to share with friends and family.
Is there an age restriction?
Yes! On Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, you must be 18 or older to participate. However, on Sundays from 12-5, anyone 13 and up can throw! Minors must have a parent or legal guardian sign a waiver for them and accompany them in the lane for the duration for the experience, no exceptions. After 5pm, it goes back to 18 and older.
How big of a group do I need?
We make our best effort to accommodate everyone from the solo thrower to large groups. While we try to follow restrictions placed by the state of Pennsylvania, we are taking 60 minute reservations for groups UP TO SIX people, no minimum! If you show up with more than 6 people, the extra group members may be asked to spectate from a distance or wait for a later time to throw if one is available. Please see our reservations page for more information.
Does everyone get a coach?
You bet. And it's included in your lane fee! Every group will have a coach to help with training, technique and to do all the leg work so you and your group can just have fun.
Do I have to wear red flannel to throw an axe?
Short answer, nope. But it'd be a lot cooler if you did!!. We do suggest that you wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in.
And everyone in the range must wear closed toe shoes. No exceptions, we cannot allow anyone to throw or enter the throwing area without appropriate footwear.
How much does it cost?
We charge $25 per person for an hour of walk-in throwing or private lane rental. We are currently accepting online reservations and walk-ins during our business hours. For more info please see our reservations page.
Is Chop Shop BYOB?
We are proud to partner with The Creamery and we only allow food and beverages purchased at the Creamery into the Chop Shop. The Creamery has a full bar and food items available for purchase that can be brought into and enjoyed in The Chop Shop!
