Sometimes, you just want to break stuff. And when you do, you hit the Riot Room.
Destruction therapy is billed as a way to let your anger out safely, and options abound at the Riot Room, which arrived in Rochester’s East End in April 2019. True to its name, the bar (yes, there is a bar) boasts its very own “destruction room” where people can … break stuff! Spectators can watch the carnage safely behind polycarbonate windows.
Depending on how destructive you feel, different packages are available to order: the “I Hate My Boss” smash set provides you with four electronics, two bottles and two plates, along with safety gear and equipment to obliterate with.
Those who would prefer a slightly more civilized version of wrack and ruin can enjoy the Riot Room’s “throwing alley,” channeling their inner marauder with a lively axe-throwing session.
And if you’re feeling lucky, there is also a carnival game where you can throw hockey pucks at ceramic plates and win prizes. Truly, something for everyone.
