FUNWORKS! has been in continuous operation in Modesto since 1960. Originally located near the corner of Floyd and McHenry, Putt-Putt Golf, as we were known until 1995, operated one of the first miniature golf courses in the Central Valley of California. In 1968, Putt-Putt Golf relocated "way out" Floyd Avenue at Old Oakdale Road. At that location Putt-Putt opened the first batting cages, bumper cars and trampoline thing in the area.
In 1989, next to the Putt-Putt Golf on Floyd Avenue, the first FUNWORKS! opened in a strip center called Copper Pointe Plaza. FUNWORKS! was a 5,000 square foot game room focused on a new style of coin operated gaming called Redemption Games. FUNWORKS! was the first business to operate ticket giving, interactive gaming in Stanislaus County. In fact, the concept was so new and unfamiliar to Modesto Police, soon after opening, the Modesto Police Department Vice Squad investigated FUNWORKS! for operating gambling equipment! The police found that FUNWORKS! only operated and still only operates coin operated games of skill and amusement which are family centered.
In 1990, FUNWORKS! opened a location in Turlock, CA at the corner of Geer and Monte Vista. In December, 1994, construction began on the present day FUNWORKS! on Coffee Road in Modesto. In July, 1995, the new, 18 acre FUNWORKS! opened with a wide variety of attractions including: The only triple level go-cart track in California, 54 holes of Putt-Putt Golf, Bumper Boats with squirters, a nine station batting cage, the Pizza Company, Playworks Play Zone, The Game Zone and Prize Counter, and Laser Tag. In 1998, FUNWORKS! Turlock relocated to it's present day location on West Main St.
Since 1995, FUNWORKS! Modesto replaced it's Laser Tag arena with the FUNWORKS! Teddy Bear Factory, Bump-N-Tag Bumper Cars and the FUN WORK Community Conference Room. We have also added "The Rock" Climbing Wall, an enclosed Prize Zone Store, Highway 66 Bowling, a Full Service Pizza Parlour, Freddy's Farm and Modesto's Corn Maze, and our in 2010 is the FUNWORKS! RC Raceway!
In 2012, FUNWORKS! closed the Turlock location and added Spin Zone Bumper Cars and 2 more lanes of Highway 66 Bowling!
