Don’t like Easter? Sick of painting eggs? Ever fantasized about riding a bunny? Well then, this krazicarnival is for YOU! My girlfriend and I went to check out the new Full Bunny Contact at The Clemente on Suffolk Street in the Lower East Side.
Brought to you by the same gang that ran the horrifying NIGHTMARE NYC last Halloween, this is a much less scary and more “kid friendly event.” They recommend kids to be 10 and up, but all ages are welcome.
So just what is this all about? Full Bunny Contact (FBC) is the nation’s only Easter season extreme Egg Hunt and Insane Easter Carnival, presented by Lugnut Entertainment & Psycho Clan, where you can battle bunnies for prizes. You don’t have to participate at all if you don’t like. You can just watch the proceedings and enjoy the competition if you’re too chicken – or, rather, rabbit. There are games of skill and games that are just plain fun. There’s a café area, bar, DJ, and dance floor. Remember how much you enjoyed Easter when you were young? Well, this is all that stuff… on steroids!
I thoroughly enjoyed jousting with the warrior bunny outside and almost won, till he knocked the legs out from under me. My girlfriend did a bit better, and knocked him off his podium, winning us a golden egg prize! A bit better on the green than in the ring, I scored an ‘egg in one’ at the Egg Putt. My grandfather, an avid golfer, would be so proud! My favorite event though was definitely ‘shoot the peep’. Those marshmallow candies are DISGUSTING! It was a true pleasure to shoot a live one with paintball gun. Yeah, really…
We didn’t have time to do all the events as we got there late, but we’ll be going back this weekend with our friends to try and ‘Dunk the Savior’ and ride the big mechanized bunny.
If you’re looking for a wild and crazy different kind of Easter celebration, you’ll DEFINITELY wanna check this place out!

FBC: THE GAME
FBC is headlined by this crazy event. Two people at a time, armed with Easter Baskets, are put in a caged-in field and will have 40 seconds to collect as many eggs as they can. Once the shot clock goes off, three large Bunnies try to block you from being successful. This isn’t a football game, wrestling match, or an MMA fight. The key here is agility, quickness, and smarts. You are not allowed to strike, grab, or push the bunnies. Any illegal contact will automatically disqualify you. The bunnies are only allowed to target your eggs. They can block them, move them, kick them, grab them from your hand and swat them out of your basket.
To be clear, this isn’t Vegas. The eggs are worth chances for prizes, but no matter how successful you are, you are not paying your rent with the winnings. The more eggs you collect the more spins you will be given at the FBC Prize Wheel – where prizes range from stellar to complete crap!
Up for grabs are gift certificates to local restaurants and bars, Broadway & Off Broadway shows, Gym Memberships, stuffed animals, tchotchkes, toys, cocktails, candy, and cold hard cash (DollaDolla Bills Y’all).
This event is designed to bring out the athlete in you. You do it because it’s fun and you want to defeat the bunnies.
SHOOT THE PEEP
Shoot a giant peep with a paintball gun… because it’s awesome.
A nutty three-hole golf course. The catch? You are putting an egg. Each day’s champion will be invited back to compete in a special event: Masters of Raw Egg Putt. Win glory, or get egg on your face.
You and a pal will try to shoot baskets against a bunny defender. Oh, but the basket is moving and the bunny has a giant carrot he can use to knock down them balls!
TAKE A PICTURE WITH THE INSULT BUNNY
This bunny is a jerk face jerk who got thrown out of jerk school. But he has to let you take a photo with him. It doesn’t mean he has to like it. But you will!
ESP – STER ISLAND
Throw a hoop around one of the famous Easter Island Heads. Throw it around the gold one and win the big prize. Oh, and you are blindfolded as the idols are move around. It’s very telepathic.
DUNK THE SAVIOR
Yep, we went there. But all in good fun. Dunk Jesus and win a truck if and only if he walks on water. Other then that your prize is merely enormous satisfaction of being such an amazing pitcher.
PSYCHOTIC BUNNY FORTUNE TELLER
This bunny can see in your dark future… And he will scream it as you!LITTLE BUNNY FU FU’S
On this podium is a champion warrior bunny, armed with a foam stick. On the other podium: you. You also have a foam stick. One of you is getting knocked off.RIDE THE RABID RABBIT
Jump on the back of an oversized mechanical bunny who’s foaming at the mouth and wants nothing more than to toss you into oblivion.
