What a great space! We got to break a bunch of stuff and just let loose. I would go back in an instant.

This place is so fun, we can't wait to go back! Something about smashing stuff to bits- relieves a lot of stress!


We went here for a work function and had a blast! The owner takes donations of glass recyclables, non-screen electronics, vases etc... I would highly recommend this for you next family or friends night!

This is a fun place to let go of things and let the stress out. My Daughters; ages 5 and 7 loved the painting room. When you're told you can make a mess after being told for years to not make a mess, it's like a 'yes' day to them. I want to break some stuff the next time we go. The kids were too young to do that.
