Business Spotlight: Funertia

| July 12, 2016


VALDOSTA – Being a massive fan of playing games, owner David Schmidt wanted to bring a new place that is family-friendly and fun to Valdosta.

Funertia, a combination of fun and mysteries, takes on a three-part approach.

One part of Funertia focuses on strategic and trading card games such as Magic, The Gathering, Force of Will, Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh.

Schmidt doesn’t play fantasy card games but wanted to give local players a place to enjoy them.

The second part of the business is general gaming. There’s a game room space, which has a diverse collection of games: Miniature bowling, Indoor Bocce Ball, Giant Jenga, Ricochet Shuffleboard, and Bumper Pool.

Then the third approach is an escape room. Mystery rooms have become very popular across the world, and Funertia brings the trend to Valdosta.


Small teams of people are locked in a room and given a set time to figure how to get out.

The locked room is set up like a small living room with a second room attached. It’s full of things like in every other house: wall decors, books, lamps, and toys.

The team has to look for clues and solve puzzles that will lead to codes to open locks.

If the team doesn’t solve it by the end, they are let out but aren’t told the answers.

To make things more interesting, Funertia includes various tournaments events for locals and out-of-towners.

Funertia also offers useful activities for team building.

Funertia is located at 1835 Norman Drive units F and G, between Atlanta Bread and AT&T.

Operation hours are 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday.
