FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Fort Wayne will soon be home to a business that will allow customers to trash the place.
All the Rage will be Fort Wayne’s first Rage Room, a new experience that allows folks to get out their stress in the form of smashing items like TVs, printers, or glass in a controlled environment.
“It’s going to be another experience-based activity, kind of like the escape rooms, but instead of solving puzzles, you’re relieving stress and throwing things, doing stuff that you’re not allowed to do at home,” Brianna Dailey, Co-Owner said.
“It’s a good way to de-stress and let loose with your friends.”
Participants get to choose a “rage package,” book a time, and then come to their appointment with closed-toed shoes.
Folks have to sign a waiver before going to town on old electronics, and they’ll also have to wear safety gear like coveralls, safety glasses, gloves and a protective vest.
Once you’re geared up and ready to go, all that’s next is to choose a “weapon,” like a sledgehammer, and begin your rage-induced rampage.
To pump you up, each room will have speakers to play the music of your choosing during the rage session.
Co-owners Abby Greutman and Brianna Dailey are opening up the shop at the old Nature’s Corner Antique location on Spy Run Avenue, which closed in March after 20 years.
There will be several options for folks to choose from, including a “bring your own breakables” package.
“You can bring stuff from your own house, go crazy, and we’ll clean it up for you,” Dailey said.
Now the pair don’t have a set date to open just yet, but they expect to be open by the end of the summer.
They are also currently accepting donations like old printers, TVs, or any other similar items that you might take to places like Goodwill.
