The Funplex celebrates 25th anniversary
The Funplex amusement and water parks in East Hanover and Mount Laurel, New Jersey are celebrating their 25th anniversary with a laser light show experience. Paired to music, this spectacular show features 3D aerial laser beams projected over guests’ heads.
Beginning July 8 and running through July 14, The Funplex Mount Laurel will be home to a customised and dazzling display of lights from every direction and timed to a classic playlist. The following week, The Funplex East Hanover will begin its nightly run of this family show July 15 and continue through July 21.
The Funplex has partnered with Laser Encore, a full-service production company specialising in laser light shows, to provide an experience for the whole family. From fairs and festivals to private corporate events, Laser Encore has worked with some of the largest corporations in the country.
First purchased in 1996 by local businessman and developer Randy Lahn, The Funplex has grown significantly over the years with continued investments and park expansion.
Randy Lahn said: “We started with a mini-golf course and batting cage and built two full amusement-water parks in East Hanover and Mount Laurel, NJ.”
“A lot of families have passed through these gates over the years, and they keep coming back which tells me we are doing something right. I’m incredibly proud of the team that helped us get here and I’m fortunate to work side-by-side with my kids.”
In addition to its two locations in New Jersey, The Funplex opened its first compact amusement park in Myrtle Beach last summer, broke ground on a dual-branded hotel at The Funplex Mount Laurel back in October and has plans to turn The Legacy Club at Woodcrest, purchased in December 2021, into a family-oriented entertainment destination.
On Monday, July 11 in Mount Laurel and Monday, July 18 in East Hanover, The Funplex will host an invitation only event for its Members and Season Passholders. This exclusive event will include dinner, exclusive water park access, the light show, and a special commemorative gift.
Introduced this summer, The Funplex is offering commemorative 25th anniversary souvenir cups with free refills through Labour Day. Guests can also purchase exclusive 25th anniversary special merchandise at both Funplex locations.
Featuring indoor and outdoor rides, waterparks, restaurants, arcades, bowling, laser tag, go-karts, and more, The Funplex offers family-fun year-round.
