This unique experience is only available here in Jacksonville NC and another similar business in California. So if you feel the need to smash stuff, this is the place! Take that anger and channel it in a place that makes you happy. So don't wait....More

Smashing places are becoming more popular! We are unique in the fact that we are in a garage and not an official location yet. We like to call this self-help for those that need it, and just plain fun for people just looking for something...More

Thanks for the awesome review! The idea of smashing stuff at first might deter some, but for those who are brave enough, it's an amazing time!

A genius way to break the ice! You definitely want to know how someone handles themselves when they are allowed to break stuff without consequences! The music definitely helps too! We're happy for you and look forward to seeing you again.

An absolute BLAST! Cannot wait to get back to this event with my daughters. I haven't laughed and smile that much in years. My 4 year old daughter was hilarious to watch. My 9 year old daughter said it was therapeutic and fun.

No one doesn't have fun smashing things! Some are hesitant at first, but that quickly goes away as soon as the first items fly! We love that you had a blast, and you are welcome back anytime!

You just described OUR favorite! Using the bat adds another element to smashing things and really gets the blood flowing! The targets hanging also give another option just to mix it up and have fun! Come back anytime!
