The team behind Funlab is on a roll and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. Most recently we told you about their brand new augmented reality darts bar, also a first for Sydney. And now, they’ve decided to raise the bar tenfold by bringing a brand new entertainment concept to town which is not only a first for Sydney and Australia, but also a world exclusive. Presenting the Hijinx Hotel, an immersive entertainment space comprising 15 challenge rooms, a faux hotel reception and a golf course.
As exciting as it all sounds, what exactly is a challenge room anyway? Basically it’s an escape room with a number of immersive elements including childhood games like Twister and the Floor is Lava. In a nostalgic callback to the 90s, Hijinx is all about vibrant experiences for kids and adults alike.
And they’re going the extra mile to make it a true blue curated experience. Each of the 15 eccentric and wild escape rooms are designed for a physical or mental challenge with each containing a delightful game for you to combat in just four minutes. At the Hijinx Hotel you’ll find themed rooms like Cereal Ball Room and the Titanic Room which promise to be as wacky as they sound.
And of course, what’s the point if it’s not Instagram-worthy? Which it most certainly is. With super OTT interiors and three brilliant bars, it’s like you’re in a top-tier hotel but one filled with childhood adventures. As for the design itself, they claim it’s a ‘mashup of The Grand Budapest Hotel and Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.’ Colour us VERY interested.
The Hijinx Hotel is set to open its doors this Friday, June 17 in Alexandria at the same precinct as the beloved Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq, along with a mega-sized Holy Moly with 18 brand new holes to demolish. Similar to the Hijinx Hotel, you can expect a number of grammable spots, themed bars and fun times galore.
It honestly all sounds wonderful and we can’t wait to experience it. Get all the details on their official website.
