The wait is finally over because Sydney’s Chaos Lab is now open in Harbourside. The family-friendly experience that’s fun for both the young and young-at-heart has been packed chock-a-block with interactive elements, immersive rooms and enough photo-ops to fill your socials for weeks. There are even a couple of science experiments to test out with Dr Splat.
Sessions are filling up fast so you’re going to want to grab your tickets sooner rather than later. But if you’re unsure when you can drop into Chaos Lab, you can now get open-dated tickets. These are great if you’ve got Parents NSW Vouchers to use.
Chaos and creativity collide from the first moment you step into Chaos Lab. From walking through the Decontamination Tunnel all the way through to Dr Splat’s lab on the other side of the immersive rooms, kids will embrace their creativity and adults will embrace being a kid again.
Each room is packed with surprises encouraging you to let loose, run riot and have fun in a controlled environment. The Mirror Maze is going to play tricks with your mind and the Mirror Room will recreate you infinitely. But, they’re not the only optical illusions you’ll find.
From there, it’s onto the Vortex Cannon where you can shoot air at targets and the Slime Station where hands are for sure going to get ooey-gooey. The Neon Room and the Dark Room are going to light up your favourite colours while you’ll also be able to express yourself on the Graffiti Wall.
Weave your own brand of chaos playing Neon Twister, disordering the pegs on the lite brite wall and destroying sandcastles in the interactive and illuminated sandpit. And forget to dive into the neon-drenched ball pit, either. Chaos Lab is a hands-on creative experience for everybody.
Sessions last 45 to 60 minutes and run all day on Saturdays and Sundays while sessions begin at 2pm on Thursdays and Fridays. Chaos Lab will also open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the school holidays. Currently, there are no adults-only sessions, but we’ve heard that they’re becoming a very real possibility. Otherwise, kidults keen to play would probably find the space kid free late in the evening.
Embrace your inner child, entertain your curiosities, and it will be impossible to get bored at Chaos Lab, now open in Sydney until 13 November. You can find it opposite Pancakes at the Rocks near the Maritime Museum on the ground level. Find open-dated tickets here.
