It's easy to jump when you know you have someone to catch you

One of the biggest indoor adventure play centres in the country will open in Carrum Downs in October 2019.

It features Australia's largest indoor playground, the world's safest and most technically advanced climbing walls, restaurant-quality food and drinks as well as world-class party and function spaces.

Funtopia Carrum Downs has certainly been designed to keep everyone from toddlers to grandparents having fun.

What can you climb?

Climb over eight metres high through the clouds on Jack's beanstalk, scale brick buildings, walk atop skyscrapers or put out fires as you climb up a burning building.

The play centre has the world's most advanced safety and interactive technology to create the world's largest fully immersive fun-climbing adventure arena of its type.

The climbing walls are fully interchangeable and interactive – meaning that the 40 climbing challenges are regularly altered to challenge different skills sets and levels.

Climbing children are encouraged by the interactivity of the walls and the centre's approachable, highly trained staff, offering constant hands-on support that helps children achieve their personal best to build climbers self-confidence.

Safety First

Funtopia's auto belays and self-clip devices are the world's most advanced and do not allow for dis-engagement unless the climber is safely on the ground.

What's in it for parents?

Parents, family members and friends can sit back at ease as their loved ones achieve personal goals, resting sure that
the latest specially-designed safety equipment and highly trained staff are on hand every step of the way.

Play to their heart's content

Funtopia Carrum Downs also features Australia's largest indoor playground built with over 5km of steel, offering 2500 square metres of riveting fun and interactive technology.

The custom-designed centre pays homage to Australia's great landmarks and icons. Visitors of all ages can ascend the Sydney Harbour Bridge, explore the Great Barrier Reef, and marvel at the enormous Eureka Tower.

Kids and parents can take a tour through the sights of Australia on the signature Car Track that weaves through the playground arena, tolls, traffic and all.

And yet the experience is intimate

One of the most unique features of Funtopia Carrum Downs is the layout of each of the Worlds, designed to
naturally separate kids of different ages groups. All with great visibility from Mr Spriggins' dining arena the kids are
never far or out of sight so parents may watch them develop their physical and social skills in a safe environment.

What's to eat?

Funtopia Carrum Downs will house a full-service café, Mr Spriggins, incorporating a specially designed seasonal menu and serving a large mix of café favourites prepared by chefs with high-quality ingredients. And yes coffee is on the menu made by skilled baristas.
