Visit Rage Room Philly To Take Out All Your Frustrations
Feeling frustrated like you want to smash a computer? Well, Philadelphia now has a rage room where you can take out all of your frustrations. Rage Philly, the City of Brotherly Love’s only rage room, where people suit up in protective gear and unleash their rage on old furniture, dishware, and children’s toys using metal bats, crowbars, and sledgehammers.
Rage Philly is run by Kea Tull and her daughter 20-year-old Nyerera Jordan. Together, they ensure that clients who participate in the obliteration of statuettes, plasma screens, playsets, and pasta strainers don’t get hurt as they smash away — and also keep customers working hard with enthusiastic exhortations to “turn it into crumbs!”
Rage Philly gives you disposable coveralls, hardhats, mesh face masks, protective vests, goggles, and lightweight work gloves to wear before you start breaking stuff. If you check out their Facebook page, you can see that there are groups of friends who go for fun, companies go for holiday parties, and even Sweet 16s are celebrated there.
“Rage rooms aren’t places where you’re going to sit down on the couch, talk about your feelings, and then be given a plate to throw — it’s not that,” said Jordan. “It can be a therapeutic experience, but we’re not licensed therapists.”
The fact that it’s owned by local Philadelphia residents who happen to be a mother and daughter makes it even more special.
“It’s a good place to allow folks to get out lots of things [built up], especially coming out of the pandemic,” said Green. “Also, we’re really excited to be able to support Black women entrepreneurs.”
