Flyers debut a 'rage room' inside Wells Fargo Center where fans can break stuff

The total transformation of the Wells Fargo Center continues with one room in particular that Flyers fans may not have seen coming but could probably desperately use.

There's now a "rage room" where fans can break stuff.

No, for real.

Now Flyers fans won't have to take out their frustration by throwing glow-up wristbands onto the ice, they can simply take some swings at a television and shatter some glass instead. And not have to clean it up.

It will officially be dubbed the "Disassembly Room" and is described as such in the release:

"The concept is definitely one-of-a-kind and non-traditional,” Valerie Camillo, Flyers and Wells Fargo Center president of business operations, said in the release. “We ran the concept by some of our fans who told us they thought this would be a fresh way to have some harmless fun. I had never heard of a rage room before the design team pitched the idea. Now, I can’t wait to get in there and take a few whacks."

The rage room-style space allows fans and guests a stress-relieving outlet amid all of the game action. Through scheduled sessions that can be reserved in advance, participants wearing protective gear can smash, break, and unleash their rage upon everyday items like televisions and dishes using bats, sledgehammers, and more. Some of the items that can be disassembled might even bear the logo of an opposing team.

ESPN's Katie Nolan got a sneak peek of the room and got to break stuff with Gritty. Talk about dreams coming true.

The room will be open for the Flyers' home opener against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday. Fans can do walk-up sessions or reserve a time slot here.

Flyers take a page from Phillie Phanatic for a stylish Gritty headband

Flyers take a page from Phillie Phanatic for a stylish Gritty headband

Bryce Harper took to the Phillie Phanatic in 2019 in ways most didn't expect. The duo built a loving relationship and the Phillies' slugger even incorporated the Phanatic's googly eyes into his cleats and headwear.

That started a trend throughout the ballpark this summer with fans jumping on board, wearing the Phanatic atop their heads whenever possible.

Some weirdo in my office even wore said headband to work. Hi Spence!

That headwear trend will now likely move over to the Wells Fargo Center where Gritty's eyes can be found on headbands. The Flyers tweeted about it on Tuesday and the team store has them available to purchase.

Here's the description from the Wells Fargo Center website: "Steal Gritty's look with the new Gritty headband from Bani Bands! Bani Bands are designed to fit just right and neither slip out of your hair nor squeeze too tight. Bani Bands are simply the best headband for working out, hanging out, playing hard, and looking good!"

$20 well spent, if you ask me.

If bobbleheads are more your speed, a uniform-less Gritty streaking is now available or you can even get a bobble of Gritty and the Phanatic together. It'll cost you though.

Watch: Gritty's birthday stroll through Philly finishes with a run up the Rocky steps

Watch: Gritty's birthday stroll through Philly finishes with a run up the Rocky steps

In celebration of his first birthday on Tuesday, Gritty took a stroll through the streets of Philadelphia with a string of balloons tied to his back and a birthday hat on top of his helmet.

The big orange fella started at the Delaware River and walked the streets through City Hall, over a couple of water fountains, through Love Park, and down the Ben Franklin Parkway to the Museum of Art, where he ran up what he called “Dr. Balboa’s steps.”

Gritty is not one to follow rules, so he didn’t exactly stop for traffic. More like traffic stopped for him.

There were plenty of selfies, high fives, and Gritty even took a moment to admire the heck out of one random guy’s beard.

Perhaps the only real hijinx came when Gritty “borrowed” a stroller with a kid in it. Thankfully, he didn’t get far.

So, uh, happy birthday, Gritty. Nice of you to celebrate with your people.
