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.

Wells Fargo Center's latest renovation has a 'Gritty' feel to it thanks to Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center

Wells Fargo Center's latest renovation has a 'Gritty' feel to it thanks to Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center

Get ready to see more than one Gritty at the Wells Fargo Center.

Like a lot of Gritties.

For Wednesday’s home opener against the Devils, the Flyers are set to unveil the Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center, where fans will have a “variety of wacky makeover options with costumes and makeup, encompassing everything from orange hair dye and face paint, to hair extensions and wigs, and even simply getting blasted with orange ‘Grit Powder,’” according to a release by the team Monday.

The Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center, which is located on the main concourse outside of Section 118, will be open 90 minutes before puck drop and through the start of the third period every game.

“For the coming season, we’ve rolled out new, first-of-their-kind experiences for millennials, gamers, foodies, and hard core fans at the Wells Fargo Center,” Valerie Camillo, Flyers and Wells Fargo Center president of business operations, said in the release. “The Gritty C.O.M.M.A.N.D. Center is our latest concept — with a clear focus on enhancing the gameday experience for families and kids.”

Gritty, quite the cultured mascot, even provided a comment on his new digs, via the release:

I recently completed a rigorous quarter hour online course in Feng shui, so Flyers fans are basically getting some Architectural Digest cover-worthy aesthetic. It’s my space, my office really, so I committed myself to a true post-modern, farm house grunge minimal feel. Bobby Flay would be so proud.

This is very selfless of Gritty.

The home opener should be fun. The Flyers are 1-0-0, there’s a giveaway item, Wayne Simmonds will be back in town and things are about to get Grittier.

Flyers paint ice at Wells Fargo Center ... and there's a difference from years past

Flyers paint ice at Wells Fargo Center ... and there's a difference from years past

Whenever the ice is painted at the Wells Fargo Center, that's when you know hockey is right around the corner in South Philly.

It's a beautiful thing.

The ice was painted last weekend and you'll notice a difference from years past.

The Flyers are going with one single logo at center ice, which you can see in the video above. The team has always gone with the symmetrical double logos.

Here's more on that from the Flyers' official site contributor Bill Meltzer:

Flyers training camp starts Friday and the first home preseason game is Monday.

That's when everyone will see the single logo for the first time.
