  • We had an amazing time. The staff was very helpful and nice. The food wasn't bad either. This is a great way to get some anger out and just throw axes.

    Brandon and his coworker, and the guy at the bar were the best! Such a fun and chill experience/environment!!! Definitely a fun way to get your energy out! Wish they had this place in Cape Coral because we would be there all the time! Definitely worth the three and a half hour drive!

  • What a fun place! And the staff is super informative and friendly. Reasonably priced for activities. Must do for a family night out, date night or just to hang out with friends.

    Great time. Anthony was very helpful telling us how to throw the 🪓 so we didn't get hurt and getting it to stick. He told us about other games they are coming out with soon. Really good time and good staff.

  • 5 star ratingWe had a corporate event here and it was a wonderful experience! The staff here is awesome. It was a great team building activity. Everyone was laughing and truly enjoying themselves. I would definitely recommend coming here for parties, corporate events, or just an evening activity!

    My wife and I tried The Backyard out as a late birthday outing for her. We really enjoyed it. The staff was super courteous and knowledgeable. The food was great! Overall, a wonderful experience...which we’ll be repeating more than a few times!

  • This was an impromptu last minute date night idea for my husband and I. Not only were we greeted by a super friendly and knowledgeable staff, but we were surprised by the amount of help, guidance, and above and beyond service that we received the whole time we were there. After throwing axes, we played darts, ate pizza, had some drinks and chatted with the staff. The whole experience was amazing and we will definitely be back.

    First time axe throwing. It made for a good afternoon with my son.
    I plan to return and try some of the food and other activities. Looking forward to more axe throwing too.
