rage room

Now you can smash things in Toronto's first rage room

When you're feeling frustrated, upset or just plain angry, you probably get a primal urge to break something. However, most of us don't indulge our inner devils because destructive behaviour is not acceptable in polite society. But now, Battle Sports is changing that with its Rage Room.

"Society prevents us from expressing that anger outward most of the time, so this Rage Room is a cathartic relief for participants," says Battle Sports co-founder Tim Cheung via email. Battle Sports also runs archery tag survival games. According to Cheung, losing players are known to visit the Rage Room.

Like the Ye Olde Dandy's table flipping service, the Rage Room provides a safe space for you to take out your emotions on inanimate objects.

The Battle Sports team also arms you with a baseball bat (and protective gear) to maximize your destructiveness. And, for $20, you get half an hour in the Room plus five plates to break. If you run out of items to destroy, you can order more off the a la carte "Smash Menu."

The Rage Room, located in North York, has been open for one week and so far eight people have tried it.

Would you want access to the Rage Room next time you're feeling angry? Let us know in the comments.
