This place is amazing. Me and a group of friends drove from Raleigh to come drink some beer and throw some axes and i can say without a doubt that this is one of my new favorite activities. Each group is assigned a coach who helps you learn how to throw the axes efficiently and assists you whenever you need it, which was initially a concern of ours. The staff here is so friendly and I loved them all. I honestly can't quite find the words to describe how fun this was, so just go throw some axes and see for yourself.

We came here for a birthday group party and it was amazing! The staff is super fun and helpful. Axe throwing can be intimidating but they show you exactly what to do and walk you through it. We had such a blast we decided to join one of the leagues they have! They have a bar with beer and wine which is wonderful. They don't have food but you are welcome to bring your own food.

Totally awesome! This was a great experience and a ton of fun was had by all who came. Great instruction from Otto. Watch out for the long handle axe used for tie breakers it's a beast! Well worth the cost which is really quite reasonable. But make a reservation if you can or get there early if you wann visit as a walk-in, Urban Axes is super popular and spots full up quick!

I had so much fun here! Service was awesome. Our coach was so fun! Get a group of 6 or more together and book ahead of time online. Reservations are the way to go. I saw some walk-ins waiting quite a bit or being turned away. This place is popular for a reason! Bar had great beer selections too. 2.5 hours of fun for a group + drinks + and awesome coach = I'll be coming back for more.

Had such a wonderful time axe throwing here! Definitely would recommend it for a small party/little hangout with friends. Definitely a group activity and everyone gets a serious chance to learn through the awesome coaches. We had Andrew, and he was super great! The one suggestion I have is to pay after versus paying before, and I only say this because we really wanted to tip our coach a little more than what we had beforehand. Wonderful time all around!

Great fun, and highly recommend. Our coach made sure we had plenty of practice before we started competing, and someone is always on hand to make sure that everyone is safe. Be aware, however, that it's 35 bucks a head, so this may be more of a special event type of thing...

Such fun! I would come every week if I lived here. Our instructor, Miss Lisa, was fantastic! Everyone should try this at least once. My son already put himself on the wait list for a league.

Throwing axes?. Hell yeah!. Totally awesome. The instructors were great, really enjoyed it. This is a nice thing to do and to spend some time with your friends. Location is a three but the rest was good.

I had to travel for some times to get there and by the time I got there I really needed to use the restroom. I didn’t appreciate the front desk wouldn't let me use the restroom until i signed the waiver and change my shoes. After I do all that, come to find out the restroom was right behind her. I also didn’t like they made axe throwing a competition as I prefer more of the freestyle but the crew I was with seemed to enjoy it, that is why I’m not giving this place a 1 star.

Great time great experience. Staff is super helpful and always excited to have. great for any event corporate personal bachelor party anything you. only thing to note parkings kind of stuff in that part of Durham so make sure you plan to get there a bit early to find a parking spot if it's during the day.

Great team outing! It was a fun environment and felt very safe. Our coach showed us how to throw the axes and then we had about an hour to throw. The coach would give feedback on if you were leaning too far forward or other things that might mess up your form. All of the staff we interacted with were very friendly and helpful. Try it out if you're looking for something new to do.
