If you’ve ever felt the need to let off some steam but had to content yourself with a silent scream in a cupboard, then Bedford’s newest attractions are for you.

Venture Games recently opened on Greyfriars (next to QD) and offers customers the choice of axe throwing or a session in their Rage Room to “literally smash things up in a controlled environment” – ideal for a de-stressing friends’ night out, team-building event or hen/stag party.

It is the latest business from the owners of Don’t Get Locked In Escape Rooms and The Cellar Bar, both successful businesses attracting visitors into Bedford town centre.

Anyone over the age of 12 can take part in either of the activities, full protective gear is provided and you can even bring your own playlist to soundtrack the mayhem.

“Our Rage Room experience enables you to literally smash things up to your own playlist or a specially curated list of songs,” explained owner Marcus Wright.

And there are electrical items, glass bottles, kitchen appliances, barrels, car panels, computers and TVs to take your rage out on.

“All our items are either broken or beyond repair,” said Marcus.

“We offer a free pick-up service for electrical items which is proving popular with Bedford residents as it avoids them having to take items to the tip or pay for someone to take them away. 

“Once the items have been smashed they are recycled at a waste recycling station. Where else can you literally grab a weapon and smash things to smithereens in a safe and fully insured environment?  We provide full PPE from head to toe, so players can just turn up and we take care of the rest.”

Of course, smashing stuff up isn’t everyone’s thing, so maybe axe-throwing is your bag.

Venture Games has space for groups of up to 10 people to learn the art of axe throwing to then compete against each other to find the most accomplished lumberjack. The winners even get a medal.
