The best location is in the lobby just outside the actual hall. If the lobby is too small, it can be placed inside the hall. Other locations include a separate room, outdoors (under a canopy), mezzanine or basement level. FUNARAMA™ should be placed away from washroom or kitchen doors.
FUNARAMA™ can be run during cocktails, after dinner or both. Rental hours do not have to be consecutive. You receive 1 hour of free idle time with any package. If you have a receiving line during cocktails or a long dinner (2 hours or more), it makes more sense to run the FUNARAMA™ after dinner. It is also a good idea to announce the FUNARAMA™ to your guests.
FUNARAMA™ is 3'-6" wide by 6' long. A 6' wide table is required for the guestbook signing. FUNARAMA™ requires one regular electrical outlet no more than 20' away. FUNARAMA™ is delivered 1.5 hours before the start time indicated on the contract. There are no charges for set up time. FUNARAMA™ is not coin operated. It is free for the guests.
We have never encountered any venue that does not allow the FUNARAMA™. Some venues may require placing a mat under the booth to protect the flooring which is easily done.
Yes, although this is not recommended. Changing the setting between black & white and color photos consumes time. It is better to stick with either black & white or color photos for the entire event. It saves time and the guestbook will look consistent.
You will receive both the guestbook and photo CD approx. 30 minutes after the FUNARAMA™ closes. The booth butler will assemble the guestbook and make the CD then hand to you in person before leaving.
The guestbook comes with 10 pages with plastic sheet protectors. It is expandable to fit unlimited pages. We carry extra cardstock and sheet protectors, so you never have to worry about running out of supplies.
Yes. If you select the Standard or Premium w/frames packages (do not include a guestbook), you can provide your own guestbook and markers (We will provide the adhesive only). The booth butler will insert the funstrips in your guestbook and ask the guests to sign.
Yes. Nothing is set in stone at the time of booking. However we will need to know the exact times closer to the event date for scheduling purposes.
You are entitled to a full refund on the $500 deposit (less $50 admin fee) if the service is cancelled at least 3 months prior to the event date. If the event date changes and we have a FUNARAMA™ available on that date, we will simply change your date. Changing venues is fine as long as we are informed at least a week before.
Once we receive the signed contract and $500 deposit, the graphic designer will email you several custom graphic examples and ask for your specs. Once he receives your specs, he will send you the design for approval within 24 hours. You can make as many changes until you are 100% satisfied.
The open concept design allows your guests to change props before each shot is taken, exchange places with one another, allows other guests to jump in and out, and accommodates larger groups.
While having a photographer is an essential component of any special event, FUNARAMA™ is a totally different concept. A photographer focuses on taking group shots to capture the essence of your event. A photographer does not focus on taking personal shots of every guest, does not offer your guests any form of entertainment and does not create instant prints of the photos.
While some photographers may set up a studio like setting to take individual photos of your guests, this setting lacks many of the exciting features offered by FUNARAMA™. These include the excitement felt from an automated sequence of 4 different poses only seconds apart, the ability to see themselves on a screen, and the gratification of getting the photos instantly.
FUNARAMA™ is NOT just a machine. It is incorporates a host of “guest friendly", adaptable features that will delight your guests. This includes an actual person to assist your guests called the Booth Butler. He/she greets every guest with a smile, operates the booth, helps out seniors and children, prints additional funstrips for groups, inserts each funstrip in a frame and hands to each guest, suggests poses, offers props, adjusts camera zoom & tilt to fit your guests, adjusts volume, pauses or restarts photo shoot as necessary, supervises & assembles guestbook, prepares photo CD. FUNARAMA™ is the only photo booth of its kind.
Yes, we will be more than happy to meet with you at our showroom where you can try the FUNARAMA™ in person, see many sample funstrips, a sample guestbook, and we can address any questions.

FUNARAMA™ has been in business since April 2005, the first company to specialize in portable photo booths for special events in Canada. It continues to be the leading photo booth provider in the GTA and surrounding cities.
FUNARAMA™ has been placed in senior homes and the turnout was unbelievable! Both young and old will enjoy posing in the FUNARAMA™ since every guest will be eager to express their happiness and sign your guestbook.
No other concept offers more value for the money. FUNARAMA™ provides 3 services in one: an exciting entertaining activity, instant party favours and an everlasting guestbook.
If you were to purchase each service separately, you would be paying a lot more. Just do the math e.g.: For an average size event (150 guests), Entertainers can cost between $500-1000, party favors will run around $700 - $1200, disposable cameras and printing costs would cost an additional $700, and an elegant guestbook and markers about $100.
Moreover, FUNARAMA™ will make your event truly unique and offer a great way for your guests to connect which is priceless.
A $500 deposit and a signed contract are required to book the FUNARAMA™. The balance is due 2 weeks before the event date. Payments can be made by credit card, PayPal, cheque or cash. Please use our check availability tool to instantly check availability. CLICK HERE
