Adelaidians — it’s time to have some good old fashioned FUN with the latest and greatest place to hold a function or event finally landing in SA!

Funlab is about to open its new entertainment precinct in Rundle Place on November 30, and it’s set to be like nothing we’ve experienced here before! This excitement-filled establishment will feature three different venues; Hijinx Hotel, Strike Bowling and Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq and will also be home to function rooms, gourmet food and beverage options AND two themed bars! The best part? Bookings for corporate functions and events are open NOW, so you and your posse can be some of the first to feel the fun!

Funlab’s aim is to curate the sort of fun that isn’t just entertaining — it’s entirely enthralling. They create a space where guests can connect with each other in a creative world of colour and fun! This epic emporium of excitement is the perfect venue to host a special occasion, a date night, a team building activity, or an upcoming Christmas party.

Funlab will plan, prep, cook and clean – so you can get back to your team and give them an event they’ll actually enjoy, tenfold (or ten-pin). There’s packages for all budgets in all three venues, so you can have all the fun under one roof.

Here’s a little more about what Funlab has to offer…

Hijinx Hotel

The motto here is ‘play, don’t stay,’ and it’s easy to see why. From the moment you arrive, you’ll see Hijinx is no ordinary ‘hotel’. Bright and quirky, Hotel Hijinx will have you thinking you’ve stepped into Willy Wonka’s eccentric mind. Each themed room is uniquely designed for you and up to six players to work together to complete quick-play challenges in a four-minute window and score points on a leaderboard. Just watch those competitive spirits come out of the woodwork!

Perfect for a Christmas party, the Penthouse Package includes ten challenge rooms for your event, a range of snacks and pizzas as well as a reserved area and a drink on arrival! Keen to take things to the next level? The Funlab Presidential Suite package will add a 2-hour beverage package and even more delicious finger food for your event to really impress your guests.

Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls — step right up to Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq and allow your senses to be tantalised by all things fun and games! At Archie Brothers you’ll have a variety of activities to entertain you including arcade games, dodgem cars and virtual reality, just to name a few. You can even win prizes for your efforts — game on!

After all the fun and games, you’re bound to feel a bit parched. You can then head up to Archie’s bar and grab yourself one of their famous crazy cocktails or iconic loaded shakes. These extravagant bevvies are as much a feast for the eyes as they are for the tastebuds!

Ready to plan your most exciting party yet? At Archie Brothers, you’re spoiled for choice with endless thrills, plenty of games, delicious food, and incredible cocktails. Try the Top Hat package, which gives your guests one hour circus access, mixed pizzas and snacks, a delightful two hour beverage package and your own Party Host and reserved area, for a real three ring circus of fun!

Strike Bowling

This is no ordinary bowling experience folks. Strike boasts eight bowling lanes and three function rooms and includes… wait for it — karaoke! The lights will be dim, the music cranking and you’ll be able to get food and drink service while you bowl. Now THAT’S up our alley! The lanes also feature interactive technology which projects animated targets onto the lanes which guests can aim for and hit to score extra points. What fun!

Ready to Bowl Up? Grab our package, which includes a game of bowling each, delicious pizza to share as well as a choice of fries or corn ribs as well as a beverage package! Hanging out in your own reserved area with dedicated party host, it will help take your festive event from drab to fab!

Funlab will be an amazing all-ages addition to the Adelaide CBD where guests can enjoy hours of competitive social fun under the one roof. Go on, get there mother-funners!
