In Cairo, Egypt is a bookstore by the name of Bab Aldonia that features a 'Scream Room' for people to relieve their frustrations.
The room is dark and private, offering each person about 10 minutes at a time to scream to their heart's content or bang on a set of drums to release any tension or anger that they may feel. With the Scream Room, it is intended that consumers will be able to return to browsing or lounging in the store feeling a little bit lighter than before.
While there have been comparable "rage rooms" set up in different parts of the world with a similar premise, many of them require visitors to rent protective gear and encourage one to unleash their fury by smashing objects. Unlike these kinds of setups that require the exchange of money, this Cairo bookstore's Scream Room is entirely free to use.
