Rage rooms have become increasingly popular in recent years as a unique way for individuals to release their pent-up anger and frustration. These rooms are designed to provide a safe and controlled environment where people can smash, break, and destroy various objects without fear of judgment or consequences.


Rage rooms first appeared in Japan in the early 2000s and have subsequently spread to other countries, including the United States and now the Philippines. Typically, the rooms are furnished with goods such as old televisions, furniture, and glassware, that guests can demolish with various equipment such as baseball bats, sledgehammers, and crowbars.


While rage rooms may appear to be a violent and destructive pastime, they can be a therapeutic experience for certain people. People often come to rage rooms because breaking objects can create a sense of release while providing relief from stress and anxiety. Rage rooms can also be a unique and fun way to commemorate special occasions or team-building events.

Superslam Rage Room

Taksyapo walls were maybe the first prototype of rage rooms in the Philippines. The term "Taksyapo" is an old Kapampangan idiom that loosely translates as "irritated." Words scattered on a huge wall become targets for easily broken pottery or glass bottles. 


They draw the same idea as the Superslam Rage Room in Pampanga, but on a more visceral and artistic scale. Ragers can exercise their crude display of power against heavy crates and LCD screens if they are outfitted with Superslam's weaponry. The inanimate things reflect all the regrets and grievances that have been carried into Superslam. For a therapeutic release, use a baseball bat to grind them into a fine powder.
