HUNTER VALLEY SMASH ROOM
Have you ever just wanted to SMASH stuff? I know I have in the last few years with everything going on I saw on Utube people overseas smashing washing machines and microwaves and I though WOW we have all these wine bottles in the area that wineries have to pay to get rid of. The idea of the Hunter Valley Smash Room was born.
How does it work at Hunter Valley Smash Room -
We are taking bookings for up to 6 people every 30mins, for the two rooms. Meaning, we only take two groups and they are allocated a room with the viewing platform. If you're a larger group looking for a corporate event, team building, Christmas Party or Birthday Party, please book the session for groups up to 15 people. We can only allow 15 in the building at once, but there is picnic tables to wait outside or tables in the Axe throwing area. Unfortunately we do not have space for people who are not participating, and they can wait outside.
When you arrive, you will be instructed to sign a waiver, given instructions on PPE wear and suited up for the time of your life. You will be given a crate of smashable wine bottles and given the rules. Each person will have a go and there is a viewing platform to watch the smashers.
Price - $60 Per Person and includes a crate of smashable Wine bottles
Groups - From 4 to 15 $50 per person
If you have a larger group, please book consecutive sessions and send us a text to 0429088020 with details and you can show up at the same time.
Cheese Platters Available - $50 per platter suitable for up 3 people
Premium Package - $120 Cheese Platter (suitable for up to 4 people), Bottle of Hunter Valley Sparkling and Pokolbin Chocolate Company Chocolate Bar
1 Extra Crate - $25
Mystery Crate - $30
Please note - Its a Mystery what you get in a Mystery Crate.
We NOW have individual sessions available at 5pm each day we are open, due to demand. You will be mixed with other individuals but think of it as a Covid Safe social mixer, or if you want your own session, you need to pay for two people and you get 2 crates and you can go for gold.
Please arrive 5mins early to your session. If you're more than 10mins late (includes the 5 mins early), you will not be able to participate and we keep your money.

WHAT IS A RAGE ROOM
Rage Room, also known as smash room or anger room, is a room designed to vent anger and destroy items within the room. Clients can breakitems by throwing them against hard surfaces or destroy items by smashing them with tools.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A rage room, also known as a smash room or anger room, is a business where people can vent their rage by destroying objects within a room.
Rage rooms may consist of fake living rooms and kitchens with replicas of furnishings and objects such as televisions and desks. The company may allow clients to bring their own possessions to destroy.
The first rage rooms to open were likely in Japan in 2008 or earlier. The concept spread to other countries, such as Serbia, England, and Argentina. Today, there are hundreds of rage rooms in cities in the United States such as Denver, Huntsville, Tucson, Austin, Milwaukee, Buffalo, Charleston, Rochester, Hampton, Eugene, Charlotte, Ogden and American Fork.
In an article published in July 2019, Dr. John Huber, a clinical forensic psychologist, on rage rooms stated "Therapy is very beneficial all the way around. I think this is a stopgap. I think if you use it in conjunction with therapy this would be great."
Safety is paramount when operating a smash room business. While rage rooms provide a safe space for destroying items, there are always obvious risks involved with sessions, including slipping and falling, flying debris from items being smashed, and emotional injury. Because of this, all rage room establishments have required participants to wear safety gear, and sign a liability waiver. Also, to prevent liability lawsuits and to satisfy insurance requirements, participants have to be at least 16 years old (18 if using the room alone, or 16 if accompanied by a responsible adult, who must sign the waiver on the child's behalf; due to the obvious dangers involved, and pregnant women, intoxicated, injured or sick persons are usually always forbidden.
Update 2022 - Open 1 Year
I just love the feedback that we have received over the last year we have been open. with many 5 star reviews. Many people think that a Smash Room is an angry thing but most people come just to let out frustrations in a safe environment. I never get sick of watching peoples reactions. Some people cry, some laugh, some yell but however you react we want you to know you're in a safe environment to let it out and feel better. We have received many beautiful letters and calls saying how much we have helped people get through hard times and it really makes our day. Thank you so much.
WHY A WINE SMASH ROOM?
WINE NOT! hahah get it.
Sorry bit silly but truth be told I keep getting asked this question and the reason is -
Do you know that wine bottles don't get money at the recycling centres so everyone in the Hunter Valley has to pay to get all the bottles removed. Im not kidding. Imagine all the bottles in the Hunter Valley Wineries?
Well I thought, if I could get bottles from the wineries and put them to use, then I found a lady that makes mosaic art from the glass, and she onsells it and then we found someone who does pool filters out of the glass. and WIN WIN. There are some great businesses in NSW and you have one - please contact us.
If you would like to donate wine bottles please get in contact with us or if you have a use for smashed glass, please let us know.
