This axe throwing chain has locations throughout the region, including one in King of Prussia and another in Philadelphia. A session can range anywhere from $25 to $40 depending on the day of the week, number of guests and length of the session, with 15 minutes dedicated to training for first-time throwers. The remaining time is all about perfecting your newly learned skills. Bonus: Both the King of Prussia and Philadelphia locations are BYOB, but neither establishment permits hard liquor.

Stumpy’s has been a big name in the axe throwing business since 2015, when Stuart and Kelly Josberger and their close friends Mark and Trish Oliphant started an impromptu game of axes. Since then, they’ve expanded across the country and landed in Cherry Hill and Delran, NJ, and also Bristol, PA. Prices starts at $15 per person per hour. You can bring your own food, and Stumpy’s even has a pour-your-own beer system.
