Concession Stand Fire at Funderland

On the evening of Tuesday, September 26, a fire broke out at the Funderland concession stand. Thankfully, no one was injured as it occurred while the park was closed and no guests or staff were present. The Sacramento Fire Department quickly responded to the fire and extinguished the flames before they spread to our rides. They are currently investigating what may have caused the fire. Our most heartfelt thanks go out to the SFD for their hard work protecting our park.

We are currently open for our normal fall operating hours as all our rides are fully operational. Additionally, we will be looking to bring in a temporary food facility in the near future to provide food for our guests.

Giveaway Rules

Fall Hours

It’s that time of year again – Summer is coming to an end, the leaves are starting to fall, and school is back in full session. Here at Funderland, we are getting ready for the Fall season as well.

Beginning tomorrow, September 6th, we will be open Wednesday through Sunday only. Weekday hours of operation are now 11am – 5pm, but weekends stay the same (10am – 6pm).

Although the Summer fun has come to an end, don’t worry, Fall comes with it’s own set of perks! Now through October 27th, you can enjoy our After School Special. We know you’re hitting the books hard all day, but once that bell rings, it’s time for some fun! That’s why every Wednesday through Friday for the next 2 months, we offer wristbands for half price after 3pm!

Next month, we are bringing back everyone’s favorite Fall event – Spooktacular Halloween! October 28th and 29th, join us at Funderland for Halloween favorites, including trick-or-treating, your favorite super heros, costume contests, and more! Stay tuned later this season for more details on the event.

So what are you waiting for? Come on in for a day of family fun – and don’t forget to tag us in your photos on Facebook and Instagram!

June “Ride Quiz” Giveaway

Who’s ready for June’s Giveaway?! We had such an awesome response from May Giveaway that we went straight into planning one for the next month. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve come up with this time!

For our June Giveaway, we decided to add a little fun into the mix. You might be asking yourself, “What could possibly be more fun than May’s Giveaway of spreading the word via Facebook comment how great of a time I have at Funderland? How could you brighten my day even more than waking up each morning for a whole week knowing I have yet another chance to win prizes that will bring joy to a special little person in my life?”

Well the answer is…

A super fun and interactive quiz that will tell you which Funderland ride you would be!

Yes you heard that right – not only can you win prizes to ride the rides, now you can BE THE RIDE. Have you ever wanted to bring joy to little boys and girls but never knew how exactly you would do it? Well, now you can see what method would work best! Will you be our Spinning TeaCups and spin children around till their bellies feels like they stuffed more butterflies than popcorn in there? Will you be our Red Baron who soars above the clouds and makes kids forget about being afraid of heights? Will you race the Flying Dragon around it’s track so fast kids will think they are in another time zone?

Find out now with a click of a button! Begin the quiz below to get your answer and at the end of the quiz, be sure to submit your email address to be entered for a chance to win TWO SEASON PASSES! Giveaway dates will last today (Wednesday 6/7/17) through next Wednesday (6/14/17).

This giveaway will work a little differently from last months, where instead of each day being a new entry, we will accumulate all the email submissions throughout the week into one drawing for a single winner to be drawn on the 14th. If you are already on our email newsletter list from subscribing pre-quiz, you can still enter to win by submitting it again at the end of the quiz. We will accept one submission per person (submitting your email more than once will not enter you for additional chances to win). Commenting on any Facebook posts or this blog will not directly enter you to win; you have to become a ride to be entered!

Please feel free to share your results on Facebook or twitter at the end of the quiz to spread the fun to others and let the world know what ride you are!

Easter Eggcitement!

Another Easter Eggstravaganza has come and gone and we would like to thank everyone who attended. To those who braved the cold, wet weather on Friday and Saturday, we extend a special thanks! Sunday, the weather cleared and we were blown away with the day’s success. We proudly sold out of every egg hunt on Sunday and the River Oak Center for Children received an outpouring of donations of toys, art supplies and games. The Easter Bunny and Happy the Squirrel enjoyed meeting the guests and doing dances for the kids. Thank you for making it an unforgettable weekend!

Stay tuned for lots of giveaway opportunities coming up in May! We are excited to begin our biggest series of giveaways next month!

Spring Forward with Funderland

March is upon us and we are springing forward into egg-citing times at Funderland! Mark your calendars, because the 2017 Easter Eggstravaganza is quickly approaching! Our event kicks off on Friday, April 7th at 11am and continues through Saturday & Sunday, April 8th & 9th beginning at 10am.

Our Eggstravaganza will include egg hunts ($3.50 per person), visits from the Easter Bunny and Happy the Squirrel, free ride tickets with donation to River Oak Center for Children, free arts and crafts, vendors, a prize wheel, and as always plenty of great rides, food, and fun! At Funderland, we believe in supporting the community that so strongly supports us. That’s why you will receive FREE ride tickets if you bring new games or art supplies for donation to River Oak Center for Children.

River Oak Center for Children provides comprehensive behavioral health services to at risk and troubled children and youth throughout Sacramento County. Their mission is to help children and youth who need support, coaching, and treatment to thrive in school, at home, and in the community. Funderland Park has worked with River Oak Center for Children for over ten years, and have had the opportunity to offer those families seeking support from River Oak to enjoy fun filled days at the park. These days often amount to over 600 people at Funderland in one afternoon!

We believe in River Oak’s mission and we are proud to be able to contribute to something positive for children and families in need. By bringing new games or art supplies, you are helping to support this wonderful organization!
