HUNTER VALLEY SMASH ROOM
Unfortunately we are currently unable to run the Wine Amazing Racedue to COVID restrictions on wineries, but we have adapted and we will be opening the new Hunter Valley Smash Room SOON.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
What is a rage room? Rage Room, also known as smash room or anger room, is a room designed to vent anger and destroy items within the room. Clients can breakitems by throwing them against hard surfaces or destroy items by smashing them with tools.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A rage room, also known as a smash room or anger room, is a business where people can vent their rage by destroying objects within a room.
Rage rooms may consist of fake living rooms and kitchens with replicas of furnishings and objects such as televisions and desks. The company may allow clients to bring their own possessions to destroy.
The first rage rooms to open were likely in Japan in 2008 or earlier. The concept spread to other countries, such as Serbia, England, and Argentina. Today, there are hundreds of rage rooms in cities in the United States such as Denver, Huntsville, Tucson, Austin, Milwaukee, Buffalo, Charleston, Rochester, Hampton, Eugene, Charlotte, Ogden and American Fork.
In an article published in July 2019, Dr. John Huber, a clinical forensic psychologist, on rage rooms stated "Therapy is very beneficial all the way around. I think this is a stopgap. I think if you use it in conjunction with therapy this would be great."
Safety is paramount when operating a rage room business. While rage rooms provide a safe space for destroying items, there are always obvious risks involved with sessions, including slipping and falling, flying debris from items being smashed, and emotional injury. Because of this, all rage room establishments have required participants to wear safety gear, and sign a liability waiver. Also, to prevent liability lawsuits and to satisfy insurance requirements, participants usually have to be at least 18 years old (18 if using the room alone, or 13 if accompanied by a responsible adult, who must sign the waiver on the child's behalf; minimum age limit varies by location), due to the obvious dangers involved, and pregnant women, intoxicated, injured or sick persons are usually always forbidden.
WHY A WINE SMASH ROOM?
WINE NOT! hahah get it.
Sorry bit silly but truth be told I keep getting asked this question and the reason is -
Do you know that wine bottles don't get money at the recycling centres so everyone in the Hunter Valley has to pay to get all the bottles removed. Im not kidding. Imagine all the bottles in the Hunter Valley Wineries?
Well I thought, if I could get bottles from the wineries and put them to use, then I found a lady that makes mosaic art from the glass, and she onsets it.
If you would like to donate wine bottles please get in contact with us or if you have a use for smashed glass, please let us know.
