‘Smash Room’ lets customers smash away stress

U.S. & World

(KSL) A unique way to relieve stress, and you could say it’s all the “rage” across the country. A new “rage room” in Utah County has opened to allow people to blow off a little steam.

“I wanted to do a smash room because I wanted to do something different,” said Nate Stutz, owner of “Phat Ax”.

Participants put on protective clothing, gloves, a hard hat and goggles before entering the smash room. They also get to choose between a baseball bat, a sledgehammer, a golf club, an axe handle or a crowbar for their weapon.

Finally, they decide what they’re going to break, anything from glass bottles and plates to old TVs and furniture.

Even with differing opinions on how effective rage rooms are as anger management tools, there’s no question in Stutz’s mind, as long as his customers leave smiling, it’s a smashing success.
