Imagine your happy place. Does it smell like freshly baked cookies? Is it filled with cheerful, bright colours? Then, you’ll be happy to know that your happy place will be brought to life at a massive, playful and multi-sensory pop-up exhibit. Happy Place, also known as the World’s Most Instagrammable Exhibit, is now open at Crown, and they’re determined to put a smile on your face.
This photo-friendly exhibit has made dreams come true all around the world. After bringing smiles to Los Angeles in 2007, Happy Place went on to have sold-out residencies in Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Sydney and Auckland. And now, it’s sprinkling some joy into Melbourne.
“Melbourne has had a pretty tough time throughout the global pandemic, and now on the other side we are delighted to be able to bring Happy Place to all Victorians,” said founder Jared Paul. “Our mission is to allow our guests to immerse themselves in an over-the-top themed experience that is designed to deliver a super-sized dose of happiness.”
This exhibit has multiple rooms filled with unique and playful installations. Enter the world’s largest indoor confetti dome and be amazed by a room filled with 40 thousand golden flowers. Then, return to your childhood in the Rubber Ducky Bathtub and feel at home in the Cookie Room, which is scented with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. After that, feel the love next to some six-foot-tall X’s and O’s, surrounded by luscious red lips.
