It’s a unique way to let off some steam…
We’re all susceptible to one of those rough days. The ones where nothing goes right; where your family are doing your head in; where you want to pick up the nearest object and hurl it at a brick wall.
Sadly, it’s not socially acceptable to start destroying a room – unless you’re a rock star of course. Most of us mere mortals don’t have a stockpile of expendable things we can simply smash to bits for a little me-time, nor the time or patience to deal with the post-meltdown cleanup.
But that chanced with the arrival of the Smash Room last year – and now they’re raising the bar even higher with ‘The Epic Smash’.
This new monthly event will allow you and nine friends to smash up some more high-end items from washing machines and printers to yes, even an actual car.
These events will be announced at the beginning of every month so make sure you pre-book.
Before you enter the Smash Room, you will be dressed in protective gear and then have the choice of weapon. These include sledgehammers, cricket and baseball bats, hammers, crowbars and many more toaster-crushing items.
If you can’t make it to one of these events then on a regular day head down and release your anger on old TVs, furniture, plates, bottles etc. The Smash Room source these items from scrapyards across the UAE and recycle them afterwards. It’s a win-win situation.
We hope you have a ‘smash’-ing time!
