There's a new place to take your rage out in Metro Vancouver

Jul 11 2018, 5:15 am

Is the price of gas driving you crazy? Did your landlord hit you with another rent increase for the privilege of living in an overvalued home? Is your favourite cafe fresh out of avocado toast? Are you generally mad at the world and need a place to let out a little bit of that pent-up aggression?

Then this new place in Richmond might be your go-to spot.

Operated by Exit, and known as The Anger Room, the facility offers patrons the opportunity to “bring all of life’s frustrations and let loose to your heart’s content.”

The concept is simple: you smash stuff, and they take care of the rest.

Depending on your level of lividness, there are different options and pricing structures.

Every booking comes with one basket of stuff for smashing. However, you’re welcome to fill the basket with your own stuff for a 20% discount. Patrons can also bring their own music to play over the venue’s speakers via aux cable.

The “Standard Angry” option costs $30 a person, lasts for 20 minutes, and each person is given a basket of 10 random items for them to break.

If a 10-item basket isn’t enough, participants can purchase additional baskets at a cost of $15 each. Larger-ticket items, such as TVs, computer screens, and printers, are also available for the smashing at a cost of between $8 and $25 each.

So next time you’re cut off in traffic, stuck on the SkyTrain during rush hour, or running late for a lunch-hour meeting that could have been an email, remember there’s a place in Metro Vancouver made for moments like these.

If you’re planning to drop by the Anger Room, make sure to wear close-toed shoes.

Other than that, they’ll provide all the protective gear, including coveralls, face masks, and gloves.

To use the Anger Room, you must be at least 18-years-old with a valid government ID.

Operating hours are:

  • Monday to Thursday: 12 pm to 11:40 pm (Last Game)
  • Friday: 12 pm to 1:40 am (Last Game)
  • Saturday: 12 pm-1:40 am (Last Game)
  • Sunday 12 pm to -11:40 pm (Last Game)

Find the Anger Room at 9111 Beckwith Road, in Richmond.

Happy smashing!
