Temper Tank, Manchester’s first smash room, is giving people the opportunity to improve their mental health, work through their emotions and express their creativity by smashing stuff with baseball bats and sledgehammers, while dancing to the chosen playlist and having fun.
It’s a bit like that episode of The Simpsons where they visit a family therapist who gives them foam-covered sticks and tells them to work out their frustration by hitting each other. But instead of hitting people (which is, just to be clear, wrong), customers will be able to live out the rage-driven fantasy of destroying everything in the room.
A spokesman for Temper Tank said: “The concept came about as we know how satisfying it would be to be able to break items from our daily routines. We believe this will positively contribute to mental health by providing an environment to express pent up emotions partnered with stress and anxiety.”
Guests will be able to book a smash room for two, with one large item and twelve small items in the room to smash up. Open now with social distancing measures in place, the relieving experience costs usually just £54.99 for two – but Fever customers can take 10% off right now and snap up the deal for just £49.50. Not only that but it is perfect for shedding that lockdown tension.

Sessions will last 15 minutes to assist with social distancing and COVID-free measures. Only two people are permitted per room. You will need to book a session with the venue after purchasing your ticket; further instructions will be included in your confirmation email.
Temper Tank can be found at Unit 11, Wellington House, Pollard Street East, M40 7FS. Unfortunately this venue has now closed.
