Just two years ago back in 2019, a 21 year old student started up a unique business in Wales, bringing the thrill of axe-throwing, which was growing exponentially in popularity over the pond in the US, to Cardiff.

Since then, the thrilling and addictive experiences have gone down a treat with people from all around travelling to LumberJacks to have a throw.

LumberJack said: “The idea might sound slightly wild but it was a fast-growing sport in America and we thought it wasn’t fair that we were missing out.”

Even if you’ve never even held an axe before, whatever your ability and no matter your age, LumberJack promises that with a little practice and assistance from its instructors, the team will soon have you hitting the target every time.

Since it launched, the business has gone from strength to strength, starting off with just a team of two and with two customers in the first opening week, to a full team of instructors and staff and over 700 customers on average visiting each month

A visit to LumberJack is guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping. So if you know anyone who would love this experience, why not give them a gift card for Christmas? These are proving very popular and are selling out in the run up to the festive season, so get yours today so you don't miss out.

So how does it work exactly?

Once you’ve arrived at St Catherines Park, you’ll be guided through a simple demonstration on how to safely throw an axe and see how it's done right by the team.

After that, you’ll be ready to go, the team will get the music on and let you enjoy the experience.

Once everyone’s had a go and gets the hang of it, the tournament will begin!

Great for team building or simply a fun, social day out

There are both individual and group sessions available to book, so it’s a great activity for colleagues to enjoy together and get in some team building while throwing some axes. The experience promises to relieve some stress, bring team members together and have fun as a group.

Don’t just take our word for it

Gareth Davies from Cardiff said about this axe throwing experience: “This was an experience like no other. I never realised how much fun axe throwing would be but it is certainly addictive, which means I will be returning.”

Emily Walters, from Brigend, went along with her work colleagues, and said: “It’s the perfect team bonding exercise, plus I managed to get rid of some of the stresses of the working day. I cannot recommend it highly enough, it’s top class.”
