Big, slapping news this morning fam… now the South Island will get their chance to step right up with the addition of two new OTT spaces made especially for Cantabrians. Score. 

After taking Auckland by storm, entertainment masters Funlab have announced they’re opening an Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq AND a Holey Moley right in the heart of Christchurch. Yes and yes. 

Situated in Christchurch’s EntX complex, just below HOYTS, Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq and Holey Moley Golf Club are the two new kids on the block—boasting mind-blowing arcade games, crazy golf courses, and 8-lanes of bowling all jam-packed into one epic precinct.

In case you’re not familiar with these kidult hotspots, here’s the lowdown.

At Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq you’ll want to take stock as you mull the dizzying array of options on offer. Imagine every game you ever played growing up, then make them 100 times better than you remember and you might come close to what you’ll experience here. Arcade games, 8-lane bowling, VR Rides and so much more will compete for your attention in the most overstimulating ways possible. 

At Holey Moley, you’ll get two sets of 9-hole courses of mini-golf obstacles and traditional putt-putt with a twist where you’ll make your way through The HMS Teetanic, Kong Live the King, Kid in a Candy Shop, and Morning Tee with Nana.

You’ll be absolutely spoilt for choice by way of refuelling options too, pick up a gram-worthy cocktail or two—think bubble gum flavoured liquors, decadent hard shakes and even the brand spanking new Rub a Dub Tub cocktail which comes in an actual mini tub with floating rubber ducks. What’s more, the American diner will be slinging burgers, hotdogs, loaded fries and more to soak up all that good booze.

Opening in October it’s time to get excited Christchurch, your childhood dreams are almost here.
