who we are
Urban Forest Axe House is proud to be Arkansas’ original axe throwing venue and the state’s first facility to be certified by the World Axe Throwing League (WATL). We create the ultimate axe throwing experience and provide an amazing place to host birthday bashes, celebrate bachelor & bachelorette parties, organize corporate events, or spend an evening with friends!
After our WATL-trained instructors take you step by step through the technique of throwing an axe, they will help guide you through many different games and challenges. Our coaches will stay with your group for the entirety of your session to make sure the party never stops! We'll warn you now - whether you're 15 or 115, once you get your axe to stick, you'll never want to stop playing!
We’re located directly off I-49 in Bentonville, which means we are perfectly located in Northwest Arkansas and easily accessible from Bella Vista, Rogers, Cave Springs, Springdale, Fayetteville, or anywhere in-between!

For facility rentals, price varies based on the number of participants.

We host custom scheduled events for corporations, churches, schools, teams, or any other group 7 days a week. Requests for a session outside of our normal booking hours can be made on our Facility Rental page.
+ Do you serve walk-ins?
It's always best to book a session online. We will serve walk-ins when we have availability, but we can't guarantee anything.
+ Is there an age requirement?
Throwers must be at least 13 years old. Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We allow up to 3 minors per adult.
+ What do I need to wear?
You MUST wear CLOSED-TOE SHOES. Other than that, we are pretty casual! Just make sure you're wearing something that gives you a good range of motion. Flannel is never a bad choice...
+ Is it safe?
Axe throwing is similar to other target sports. It is very safe, but you must follow the instructions and safety rules to keep it that way. Our axe coaches are trained to provide fun, safe experiences.
+ What if I don't know how to throw an axe? Is it difficult?
The great thing about axe throwing is that it has nothing to do with size or strength. Our professionally trained coaches will teach you everything you need to know. They'll show you where to stand, where to aim, how you should swing your arms, and more. Once you get the form down, you'll be surprised how easy it is to hit the target!
+ Do I need to bring anything?
We ask that you bring closed-toe shoes, your photo ID, a little competitive spirit, and a smile! We'll supply all the materials and axes.
+ Can I bring my own axe or other throwing objects?
Our lawyers wouldn't like that. We'll need you to leave all your personal throwing items at home, UNLESS you are a member of our league. League members may bring approved axes to throw.
+ Can I bring my own food and drinks?
Absolutely! You are more than welcome to bring your own food and snacks. We are also a BYOB facility so feel free to bring your own beer or wine, but no hard liquor please! See "What is your BYOB policy?" for full regulations.
Those who rent the entire facility are permitted to have their own catered food and drinks.
+ What is your BYOB policy?
We are an axe throwing venue, not a bar, so we have some guidlines to ensure everyone stays safe. We can only allow beer and wine, no hard liquor. We also ask that you please leave the glass beer bottles at home. Since we can't serve you, go ahead and bring some cups if you'd like. Each person is allowed to consume two drinks per hour. We will be checking IDs to make sure no one under 21 is drinking.
If at any point our axe coaches think you may be unable to safely participate because of your intoxication, we have full right to prohibit players from continuing.
This privilege can be taken away at any time, so please play by the rules and help us keep everyone safe!
+ How do I book?
Bookings are made online. Just click any of the "Book Now!" buttons throughout the site to launch the correct page.
+ What is your cancelation policy?
Because we have to adjust our staffing based on the number of bookings, all sales are final. That being said, we know life happens. Please let us know about any conflicts as soon as they come up, and we'll see what we can do.
+ Do you have leagues?
We do! Please see the "Leagues" tab for more information!
+ Are you wheelchair accessible?
We are! The entrance on the south side of the building has an accessible ramp.
