GRAND OPENING: OUTRAGE SMASH THERAPY
Outrage Smash Therapy commemorates grand opening
Outrage Smash Therapy recently commemorated its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
A one-of-a-kind entertainment venue, customers can smash, break and destroy various items in Outrage’s so-called rage rooms.
“Outrage Smash Therapy was an idea I had about three years ago. I thought, ‘It could work, yeah it would be really fun, but I don’t know if it would work out or not in Lafayette,’” said Evan Ledman, co-owner and CEO.
During a 15-minute break, he told his then-boss, Kali Foley about the idea. To Ledman’s surprise, she immediately jumped on board. Foley, a co-owner, also serves as Outrage Smash Therapy’s CFO.
“So,” he continued, “Over the course of many more 15-minute breaks and lunch hours, we made Outrage Smash Therapy. And you’re standing in it right now. We’re excited to introduce this to the community.”
Located at 135 South Earl Avenue in Lafayette, Outrage Smash Therapy also boasts a splatter box where customers receive a poncho, a canvas, goggles and 20 minutes of splattering fun.
“This is very, very exciting, and I hope you have a lot of business,” said Indiana State Representative, Sheila Klinker. “I think that people can take out their frustrations here. Congratulations.”
Tony Roswarski, Mayor of the City of Lafayette thanked Foley and Ledman for their investment in the community and commended them for having the courage to follow their dreams.
“When I saw this, I was intrigued. Most of the time when I get invited to places, I pretty much know what I’m getting myself into – this was a little bit different,” Roswarski chuckled. “We’re thrilled that you’re bringing another amenity to the community for people to try out.”
Outrage Smash Therapy has various packages from which to choose.
For $35, customers receive 15 dishware or glass items, a small electronic and one medium electronic to destroy with a golf club, crowbar or baseball bat, among other tools. Larger packages, ranging from $75 to $15, for groups are also available.
“I love it when people follow dreams. I love it when people bring new, exciting things into a community; it’s what makes it vibrant,” added Bob Schafstall, vice president of chamber operations at Greater Lafayette Commerce. “People will love this.”
