A new way of venting your frustrations has opened in Philadelphia.

It’s called Rage Release Room.

“The rage room is a place that is non-judgmental,” said Kea Tull, who runs the business with her daughter Nyerera Jordan. “It’s a place where you could come in and break stuff with everything from a baseball bat to a sledgehammer to release frustration anger anxiety stress, or some people do it for fun.”

Tull says they have two options for people, they provide things to break or you can BYOB — bring your own breakables.

“We have all types of things like glassware, we have kids toys, TV’s, keyboards, a lot a of stuff, anything that can be broken,” she said.

She remembers one customer who got a little carried away, breaking things he was supposed to leave alone. “The table that we were using to set our stuff up on one guy guess he thought it was part of his package, he was just going and going I said, wait, the table is not part of the package and he broke the table.”

You have to make a reservation online and pay in advance, and they provide protective clothing and eye wear as part of the package.

The facility is in the old Amoroso bakery building, giving people plenty of room to take out their frustrations
