London, Jan 18: Two Serbian teenagers have developed a "Rage Room", where those with something on their chest can go to lighten their load.
Customers are handed a baseball and hardhat, before unleashing on lamps, beds, tables and any other unfortunate piece of furniture, the Daily Mail reported.
The Rage Room has drawn a flurry of attention since it opened in the northern Serbian city of Novi Sad in October, where two decades of war, political crisis and economic hardship have driven many people over the edge.
The teenage proprietors were inspired by a similar "Anger Room" in Dallas, Texas, who thought a Serbian version would be a surefire way to make money.
The Dallas version costs up to 75 dollars per session and has an array of objects to destroy, including computers and office furniture.
But the Serbian alternative, housed in a refurbished garage, is much more basic.
For 6 dollars customers, who are required to wear protective gloves, glasses and a helmet, can smash a coat-rack, chair, bookshelf, and other items such as framed photographs, empty cans and plastic containers.
After the destruction, they get to unwind with relaxing music, leaving the clean-up to staff.
Nikola Pausic, an 18-year-old who runs the room with a friend said that on average, they have one person a day, enough to keep them going.
Dozens of all ages have come so far, Pausic said.
He said that visitors, who have included a number of women, usually need about five minutes to destroy everything inside.
While it may be an easy way to let off steam, experts warn that projects like this are no replacement for anger management therapy.
Pausic said that each visitor must sign a document that includes a clause saying the Rage Room does not aspire to offer medical assistance.
After the session is over, customers are given a CD that includes information about professional therapists and how to contact them. (ANI)
