In 1998, Funtime was established in the suburb of Bundall on the Gold Coast, Australia. Shortly after, the company opened a small amusement park in Surfers Paradise, a nearby Gold Coast suburb. At the time, the amusement park was known as Adrenalin Park and featured the company's Sling Shot and Vomatron rides.
In 2010, Funtime threatened legal action against Dutch amusement ride manufacturer, Mondial, after that company unveiled the WindSeeker which bears similarities to Funtime's patented Star Flyer ride. Mondial responded to the threat by stating that "there is no merit to Funtime's claim". The matter did not progress.
- The Bell — a ride similar to a Frisbee, except they are located inside a giant bell
- Chaos Pendle — riders are mounted on the ends of several arms and spun around in a propeller-like fashion
- Rocket — riders are harnessed into a rocket shaped car which is raised into the air and spun around a tower and on its own axis
- Sky Diver — an amusement ride similar to a Skycoaster where riders are winched to the top of a launch tower and then dropped towards the ground, swinging from a cable tether back and forth until brought to a rest
- SlingShot — a reverse bungee ride where passengers are propelled over 100 metres at speeds in the region of 160 kilometers per hour. The machine does not utilize rubber ropes or bungee cords as in a slingshot, but is powered by a patented spring propulsion device incorporating up to 720 specially-designed springs. The SlingShot can be custom designed to cause minimal disruption to existing venues.
- Star Flyer — a variation of the traditional swing ride where riders are swung around the top of a tower
- Tornado — a ride that simulates a tornado by sending riders in a figure-eight motion
- Vomatron — a type of ride similar to the centrifuges used in astronaut training, except on a vertical axis
- Skyfall — currently the highest transportable drop tower in the world with a height of 80 metres (260 ft)
