Meet Happy Place, the world’s most Instagrammable exhibit coming to New Zealand

It's dubbed ‘the world’s most Instagrammable exhibit’ for a reason!

It’s filled the newsfeeds of people in Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Las Vegas, Sydney, Philadelphia and more, now pop-up phenomenon Happy Place is making its way to New Zealand.

On a mission to spread happiness around the world, the innovative experience has helped more than one million people “find their happy”, and now it’s Auckland’s turn.

Whether your Instagram-feed is looking a little dry or you’re ready for a topnotch day out, Happy Place has got you covered.

Step inside its vibrant doors and explore larger-than-life whimsical installations and multi-sensory immersive rooms including the world’s largest indoor Confetti Dome, a giant rainbow complete with a jumpable ‘Pot of Happiness’, six-foot-tall X’s and O’s surrounded by red lips, the famed Rubber Ducky Bathtub, the wildly popular Cookie Room scented with the aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, an Upside Down room that defies gravity, and Super Bloom, a room filled with 40,000 golden handmade flowers – and that’s only the beginning.

We can see the photos already.

“We founded Happy Place on the simple idea that the world could use a lot more happiness, and after seeing the joy it brought people in America, we knew the experience was something special. Since then, we have made it our mission to inspire more smiles and laughter by providing a momentary escape, but we never dreamed we’d be able to bring a little bit of happiness all the way to New Zealand.  We can’t wait for you all to experience Happy Place.

Jared Paul, Happy Place founder, veteran American entertainment manager and live event producer

Hundreds of thousands of guests visited the very first HAPPY PLACE in Los Angeles, with famous fans including Adele, Kourtney Kardashian, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, Hilary Duff, JoJo Siwa, Travis Barker, Jason Sudeikis and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
