FUNBOX Pop-Up Maze at The Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks (extended to February 3, 2019)

Looking for something unique to do in Thousand Oaks this fall? Stop by FUNBOX pop-up maze located in the former 9,000 sq ft Charming Charlie store at The Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks. It is located on the east side of the 2nd floor, a few doors down from The Apple Store and across from Anthropologie.

This temporary pop-up is a maze of over 20 large art installations, using over 60,000 pieces that will amaze and entertain all ages.

FUNBOX is the brainchild of Antonio Nieves and Laurance Hallier, inspired by the children in their lives.

I stopped by FUNBOX on Thursday, August 30th, as staff worked steadily in constructing this interactive exhibit. Each room has something unique and both visually and tactically appealing. Each room is a work of art inspired by toys and childhood dreams. The room motifs include:

  • Teddy bears

  • The alphabet

  • Gigantic crayons

  • Large emojis

  • Giant Monopoly board

  • Fortnight room

  • Giant, interactive cereal bowl full of Fruit Loop-like cereal

  • The mirror room

  • The pool noodle room

  • The monkey and banana room

  • The upside down room

  • And many more!

FUNBOX will be open on a limited basis over the Labor Day holiday weekend through FEBRUARY 3, 2019 (originally was end of October). Admission is $17 for adults and $12 for children. Free of charge to 5 and under. Learn more and purchase tickets at
