Everyone has their own ways of letting out frustration after a loss. On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Flyers announced a way fans can blow off some steam before, during or after the game in the newly created “Rage Room”. 

Wells Fargo Center has a new bar and lounge area called the Assembly Room. It is unexpected that the Rage Room, or “Disassembly Room” lies secretly behind a library wall of an entrance the the lounge, which makes it the first of its kind inside a professional sports facility.

The purpose of the Rage Room is simple: take out your anger and fury on TV’s, glassware, guitars, and other items using hockey sticks, baseball bats, and sledgehammers, to create the ultimate destruction. Fans are given one medium-sized item to break along with smaller items in a five-gallon bucket.

During each five-minute session, fans wear protective gear from broken and smashed debris. Some items can reveal the logo of an opposing team if they are smashed enough. If you are not interested in wreaking havoc, there is an observation room available.

According to Valerie Camillo, president of business operations of the Flyers and the Wells Fargo Center, “The concept is definitely one-of-a-kind and non-traditional.” Flyers fans think it’s a “fresh way to have some harmless fun” after the organization ran the idea by them.

The Rage Room made its debut on October 9 during the Flyers’ home opener against the New Jersey Devils. Fans must make specific reservations prior to a session that cost $35 for individuals and $60 for groups of two.

    I probably needed to go there after the last three games. (Fun fact: my paternal ancestors are from Philly, as in my great grandfather who was from there but was enticed to leave in order ot get “fresh air and cheap land” in Nebraska.) Guess my Phillie heritage still lives.
