Toronto Has a New Tourist Destination, and It Involves Breaking All the Plates You Want
The only review for Toronto's new "Rage Room" reads as follows: "I had an awesome time in the Rage Room." Such a brief recommendation recalls a very Fight Club-esque vibe: The first rule about Rage Room is that you don't talk about the Rage Room. Don't get any wrong ideas—Battle Sports' space is simply a safe area for relieving stress in the most fun way possible: breaking things. The most basic "plan" will cost you $20 and get you 30 minutes in the room and five plates to demolish. Additional props—don't worry, they're all extremely smashable—are offered menu-style for an extra fee: plates are $2 each, pictures (in frames) are $2 a piece, wine glasses are $3, vases are $5, and a chair will run you $20.
It may not be the family vacation activity you always envisioned, but the oddball factor really isn't too far off from the trending "Escape the Room" challenges (i.e. paying to be locked in a room for hours to search for clues with complete strangers on how to get out). You can read more about Rage Room—and book your session—on its website. Check out the video below to see how it works:
