Philly fans take venting to greater heights

The Flyers announced Tuesday that the Wells Fargo Center now has a "Disassembly Room," the first-ever "rage room" inside a major professional sports arena.

Located behind a "hidden" library wall entrance in the team's new "Assembly Room" lounge and bar area, the anger cave allows Flyers fans to take out their aggression on household items like TVs, dishware, bottles and guitars using a variety of tools like baseball bats, orange and black sledgehammers and, of course, hockey sticks.

There's been times I've wanted to embed the remote in the tv screen, but I wonder about this.  Probably have better things to do with my money.  Might be fun though!

This might be a great business opportunity the next time we make the SCF.  Imagine a fleet of trucks/trailers/containers throughout downtown, where people could go inside and smash stuff safely and legally for a change!

 

Might save the city a bundle.

It'll last until the first person hurts himself and sues the Flyers.

Is this room a one person only thing?  What if the Flyers let in more than one guy, and the fans started beating on each other?  Do the Flyers make sure the fans aren’t drinking before?  You are right about coming lawsuits.

This is one of the dumbest ideas ever.

There's more details in the link.  I kept it short to make it easier to post using my phone.

 

These things exist elsewhere,  and perhaps unsurprisingly seemed to originate in Japan.  There is safety equipment, and I doubt more than a group of two can be in the same room at a time, but I don't know for sure. There is also an observation area, so others can witness the carnage.

 

I'm sure the Flyers have protected themselves from a legal perspective as best they can.

 

Good point on alcohol, though.  My guess is they watch out for that, too.
