Andy Berg Headshot

The NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers are taking anger management to the next level with a new “Rage Room” to be unveiled at their home opener on Tuesday night as part of a $265 million overhaul of the 23-year-old Wells Fargo Center. 

One in, Flyers fans can take up a baseball bat or other blunt instrument and take out frustrations on bottles, dishes or even a fishbowl stamped with the visitor’s logo

“The concept is definitely one-of-a-kind and non-traditional,” Flyers executive Valerie Camillo told the AP. “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.”

The Flyers will charge $35 per person or $60 for two for five-minute rage sessions and will let up to 14 fans per game participate. The room can be reserved online or in person. Fans also have to wear a rage room costume of jumpsuit and safety helmet.

Peter Caccioppoli, of New York was the first to try out the Rage Room, using a hockey stick.

“I broke the stick, which was a lot of fun,” Caccioppoli said. “The bat is easy to wield. I played baseball for a long time, so it was easy to throw a couple of plates and smash those. The sledgehammer was fun, too. It was a good time.”
