Funlab brands Holey Moley and Hijinx Hotel are at it again, this time opening in the Canberra Centre, Canberra, on 5 April.

These brands are designed to be more than a typical pub or restaurant.

The two venues will employ 80 new staff (known as ‘Motherfunners’) across the multiple function rooms, themed bars, minigolf course, karaoke, and 15 rooms dedicated to immersive quick play competitive games.

Holey Moley, which has been entertaining Aussies for the last eight years, is an indoor mini golf course that “turns traditional putt putt into a multi-sensory labyrinth of unique holes”, bringing 80s and 90s nostalgia to life.

Each hole has a theme, and Canberra will see three new themes included in their 18 holes: You Wanna Pizza Me, Bear NecessiTEES and Wheel of FOREtune.

The 80s and 90s theme continues in the Caddyshack bar, where drinks and food include vegan, gluten free and non-alcoholic options.

Meanwhile Hijinx Hotel (designed to play, not stay) comprises sets of “magical and immersive” quick-play challenge rooms, designed for groups of two to six players competing to score the most points. Like Holey Moley, there are whimsical themes throughout, with new themes for Canberra including Abandoned Arcade, Basket Ballers and Clawesome.

At the end of the challenge, players can drink and dine at the restaurant and bar.

Funlab CEO Michael Schreiber says he’s thrilled to bring their all-ages fun to Canberra.

“At Funlab we’re passionate about creating spaces where people can let loose and experience the joy they had as a kid in the playground, as an adult.

“We combine competitiveness, fun, delicious eats and unique cocktails with a theatrical and immersive environment – a fun-filled experience like no other.”

Gary Stewart, general manager of the Canberra Centre said he is excited for the new experience these venues will provide.

“The addition of Holey Moley and Hijinx Hotel continues to elevate the experiential offers available to our customers with first to market experiences available at their doorstep.”
