Multi-attraction venue, The Funderdome opens its doors at Highpoint

The Funderdome at Highpoint is located next to HOYTS

The Funderdome “Home of unprofessional sport” makes its debut at GPT’s Highpoint. The large 2,000m2 space located next to HOYTS is zoned for maximising fun no matter your age, your skills, or how you love to play, with each attraction harking back to a different pre-internet nostalgic era.

It’s a fun competitive socialising destination with a world-class two-level 18 hole crazy golf course, cornhole, shuffleboard, old and new school arcades, karaoke party rooms and diner-style pub food and beverages.

Rachel Duggan, Highpoint Regional General Manager said: “The exciting Australia-first launch of The Funderdome joins HOYTS, Strike Bowling, Timezone and more in Highpoint’s growing entertainment and dining precinct in The Junction on Level 1, where visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to family fun, dining and late night entertainment options.”

The Funderdome’s New School Arcade features an ever-evolving collection of immersive experiences

The multi-attraction venue features Playas Crazy Golf – an 18 hole mini-golf and two levels of putt-putt perfection designed in collaboration with the world’s leading mini-golf course designer (Zachary Pulman Design Studio), Playas promises challenging play in a cool retro Coney Island atmosphere.

Tyrone Dodds – Director of Property & Business Development, HOYTS said: “The Funderdome celebrates the joys of unprofessional competition and takes you back to a nostalgic time where we’d play for fun and friendship, not fame and fortune. Every aspect of the Funderdome experience, from the games, the hospitality, to its super positive club rules and folklore is about low-stakes winning and celebrating every win in not all-together serious ways.”

The Funderdome’s Old School Arcade includes Space Invaders, Pacman and epic pinball and the New School Arcade showcases an ever-evolving collection of the latest and greatest arcade games.
