Rage Xscape

122 S. Division St., Spokane

It was October of 2020, and Kitten Rose and her three teens had decided to start the process of getting rage rooms opened in the Spokane area. At first, her idea was doubted, considered a “novelty store,” and told by loan companies that it wouldn’t bring in enough revenue. At the encouragement of her teenagers, she went forward with the plan by saving up enough to get a month’s worth of inventory and secure a location. That brought into the existence of Spokane’s very own Rage Xscape! At Rage Xscape, you can vent your anger and frustrations at your life’s problems in a safe, fun environment where you get to go into a room and “rage” at all the breakables at your disposal. It’s the perfect stress reliever!

This is the perfect hot spot for those that always wanted to experience what it’s like to race against the clock to beat impossible odds, just like in the movies.
