LET US BREAK IT DOWN FOR YOU
WHO CAN DO STUFF?
The Wreck Room is for ages 16 and up. Anyone younger than 18 will be given additional safety equipment (optional for all other participants) that is required to be worn while breaking.
What things will i break?
We have a revolving door of assorted items that are featured in our packages. No package will be the same and will include items such as: beer bottles, mugs, cups, plates, trinkets, vases, VHS tapes, DVDs, CDs, vinyl records, cassettes, and the like. Additionally items like large ceramics, computers, monitors, printers, and TV's are available for an additional cost - while supplies last.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS COST?
We offer various packages ranging from $30-70 with the option to add-on ala carte items to extend the fun.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, Laurence Oliver, it is. Pretty much. Of course, forcefully smashing fragile items with heavy tools does carry an inherent risk. We give you the face/head/body/hand protection that you need to emerge unscathed. Also, we only allow one person to break at a time, with the rest of the group viewing from a shielded window.
How can I prepare?
Listen to a lot of Metallica on the car ride over. Beyond that, we have everything you need - except shoes. Please come with closed-toed footwear.
WHat about covid-19?
Yeah, that whole thing sucks. But it hasn't stopped us, so don't let it stop you! For the health and safety of the public, our staff wears masks and frequently disinfects all touch points including the protective gear and tools used in the wrecking process.
HOw many people can party?
Our lobby is small, but mighty! Still, we have to limit group sizes to 6 to ensure everyone has ample room to suit up and smash down. If you have more friends (congrats, by the way), they are encouraged to kick it upstairs and grab a bite at Fork Forty Food Hall.
how do I find this place?
We are located at 440 State Street, Salem OR 97301. In the basement of Fork Forty Food Hall. Please enter at the back of the alley, behind the building. There'll be a big logo on the door.
Do I have to book in advance?
We love to know who is coming and encourage you to pick a time slot (no added cost). But if you are living in the moment and find yourself downtown looking to have some fun, come find us! If we have an opening, we'll gladly fit you in.
what if I get smashed before I come to smash?
We have a zero tolerance policy for intoxicated participants - for your safety and ours. Tipsy, drunk, stoned or high - please come back when you are not.
Do you have a theme song?
We do. And it has the lyrics "broken glass, everywhere..." Sorry, Ms. Cyrus - you didn't make the cut.
