Killer Road Trip: The Rage Room in Winslow
Saturday, December 3 and Sunday, December 4 —Winslow
Feeling stressed? You can rage out at Central Maine’s newest entrepreneurial venture, The Rage Room, run by Craig Stanton, who dreamed up a fun use of his extra garage space. A rage room or an anger room is a place where you can smash all kinds of bottles and electronics. Rage Rooms, which started in Japan, have been popular in other areas of the country, but it’s the first one in central Maine. As a car detailer, this is his side gig and the place is picking up all kinds of buzz around the state. A Pen Bay Pilot story is coming soon. In the meantime, you can book individual or party appointments with Craig via email or by calling (207) 250-1923.
