Located in the Kittatinny Mountains of northwestern New Jersey, 50 miles from New York City, Crystal Springs Resort has debuted a 7,800-square-foot, three-season tented pavilion with panoramic views. Big Sky Pavilion can accommodate 350 attendees for a banquet or 500 for a reception. This property features one exceptional element: the Rage Room. Designed to look like a typical office, the space allows guests to use a large hammer to smash computers, printers, coffee mugs, and even the desk. Another option: Participants can write things that infuriate them on dinner plates, then throw them against the wall. Each participant dons a cover-all garment and goggles before entering the room, while colleagues can watch the action through a plexiglass wall.
