5. Lumberjaxes Throwing, Millvale.Lumberjaxes founders Corey Deasy, Matt Peyton, and Jack Welsh so enjoyed their axe throwing experience while on vacation in 2016 that they immediately knew axe throwing would be a welcome addition to the Pittsburgh region.

You can even book online reservations at one of the four area locations.
