Do you ever just want to break stuff or smash things without the repercussions of ending up in jail? The SC Riot Room has a place for you.
Small History of the Riot/Smash Room
According to the SC Riot Room website, this concept was developed in 2008, with the first room in operation in Japan. It then spread to other parts of Asia and then Europe. There are now several rooms located throughout the United States.
Benefits of Raging/Smashing
Some experts claim that this form of physical exertion is not just for fun but can actually be good for your mental health. In an article in USA Today in November 2018 titled: Rage rooms: Why recreational smashing could be good for your mental health , people detail their experiences which included emotional and physical release of stress and mental frustration. This does make sense, since most of us, in one time or another in our lives, have in fact broke something in anger. There is somewhat of a satisfaction in taking anger and releasing it onto an object (hopefully not a person). These rooms offer a safe environment to destroy things and give you safety equipment so that you don’t hurt yourself.
