Flyers debut ‘rage room’ for fans to take out frustrations

This seems appropriate.

Philadelphia Flyers fans who may be looking to get, oh, maybe 44 years or so of frustration out (1975, anyone?) now have the chance to do it at their team’s home arena.

The “Disassembly Room” is a first-of-its-kind “rage room” inside Wells Fargo Center that will offer fans the chance to do their own damage.

Flyers mascot Gritty helped christen it.

“The concept is definitely one-of-a-kind and non-traditional,” said Valerie Camillo, president of business operations of Philadelphia Flyers and the Wells Fargo Center. “We ran the concept by some of our fans who told us they thought this would be a fresh way to have some harmless fun. I had never heard of a rage room before the design team pitched the idea. Now, I can’t wait to get in there and take a few whacks.”

Fans can schedule sessions in advance. While wearing protective gear, they can smash and relieve their rage on things like TVs, dishes and mirrors with bats and sledgehammers. Rooms can be rented for $35 per person or $60 for a group of two.

The Disassembly Room debuted Wednesday for a game against the New Jersey Devils.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
