Have you ever been so angry that you wanted to just SMASH EVERYTHING - reality eventually sets back in and you don't actually break the things you worked so hard for. There's actually a place in Tampa that lets you give in to that urge to break stuff, and it's absolutely smashing.
There's a little place in Tampa and even a 2nd location in Lakeland called Smash Room, and it's exactly what it sounds like: a room where you get to go and just break things. Except you get to do it with a bat or sledgehammer, or you can still use your hands - that's cool too!
Between work, bills, staying in shape or taking care of a family, life sometimes gets to be too much to handle, it seems Smash Room understands this enough to open up a place like this for you to just smash it all out. They even have an option for you to bring a box of your own stuff; perfect if you have an ex you need to crush out of your life or maybe you could just find a new use for that old Windows '95 computer you have in the garage.
And it just looks so cathartic. One de-stressor took a nice swing at a glass that you can see below:
It will cost you $29.99 to have a therapeutic 20-minute smash sesh alone that includes 20 smash-ables, plus 1 electronic. If you're looking to come in a group of 2 or with your closest girlfriend to vent about that crappy break-up, you'll have 30 minutes to get it out for $59.98 with double the items so you each have your own set to break.
Their website also offers some group pricing for larger groups that also include additional things to break and longer time periods if you have something you really need to get off your chest. They even include all the safety gear and tools, so you can make a breakthrough in style as an ax-wielding bad-ass.
The Smash Room of Tampa location is open 5:30 pm to 9 pm Tuesday through Friday - with Saturday and Sunday, being open 2 pm to 9 pm. Mondays they are closed. If you're under the age of 18, you will have to have a parent accompany you. Regardless of your age, all smash-ers are required to sign a limited liability waiver that can be downloaded from their website.
