Some NHL teams appease their fans with free hats or magnetic timetables. However, the Philadelphia Flyers know what their fans really want: the opportunity to smash a flat screen TV with a hockey stick.
The Flyers announced on Tuesday that the Wells Fargo Center now has a "Disassembly Room", the first-ever "rage room" in a large professional sports arena.
The Rage Cave is behind a "hidden" library entrance in the team's new lounge and bar area "Assembly Room", home appliances such as televisions, dishes, bottles and guitars with a variety of tools such as baseball bats, sledgehammers and orange hammers and of course hockey sticks.

Fans wear protective clothing during the session.
Shatter some of the items enough and, according to Flyers, they could reveal the logo of an opposing team.
"The concept is definitely unique and not traditional," said Valerie Camillo, President of Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center. "We implemented the concept of some of our fans who told us that this would be a new way to have harmless fun."
The "Fury" concept started in Japan about a decade ago and eventually spread to US locations like Break Stuff Bay Area in San Jose, California, using recycled electronics as feed and charging $ 25 for a " BYOB "option, which allows people to bring their own stuff, book fans for a certain time before, during or after the home games in Philadelphia for $ 35 for individuals and $ 60 for groups of two. Participants will have five minutes to smash objects and receive a five-gallon bucket of smaller, fragile items and a medium-sized item they can break. Flyer Fans.
