Chopper’s Hatchet House, a next-level axe throwing and entertainment venue, hosted a Grand Opening party for the community, local business owners and VIPs on Thursday, March 8, 2018.
The BYO 13,000 square feet of space is located in the Woodcrest Shopping Center in Cherry Hill, closest to Haddonfield-Berlin Road, just off of exit 32 from 295 and has 12 arenas (2 of which are ADA-Compliant), pool tables, darts, vintage arcade games, a lounge, and a private event space with three projection-screen TVs.
At the grand opening, Chopper’s teamed up with Innovative Catering Concepts, who provided appetizers and refreshments for guests.
Entertainment was provided by musician Brian Bachorz who has an excellent voice and does amazing covers from Springsteen, to Pink Floyd to Jackson Browne while playing the guitar.
Chopper’s Hatchet House’s Co-Owner Keith Gibbons says, “We built this venue with events and special occasions in mind. We are excited to showcase our venue and invite the local community to experience the fun, safe sport of axe throwing for themselves.” Also on hand last night was Mike “Rupert” Moore, GM of Chopper’s Hatchet House, who just returned from the World Axe Throwing League Championship (WATL) in Canada, where he came within points of winning the World Championship. He is now 2017’s top ranked American axe thrower.
There are 12 arenas, two are ADA compliant. The soda looking cases are actually refrigerators for you BYO and food.
There is plenty of space to mix and mingle as well.

Overhead throws are the most popular, although some people have done one handed throws, but usually only experienced throwers as it’s harder.
