You hear me talk all the time about choosing happiness and savoring the joy (and sorrow) in the journey. So, you can imagine my excitement when it was announced that Happy Place was coming to Chicago!
Happy Place was founded by Jared Paul and opened originally on November 20, 2017. It’s a traveling pop-up experience with beautiful installation art pieces that are sure to make you happy. Even reading about it brought out the kid in me. The rooms are filled with life size installations, multi-sensory immersive rooms, and dozens of moments curated to Capture Your Happy.
Highlights include: dancing in the middle of world’s largest indoor Confetti Dome, jumping off of a larger than life double rainbow into a pot of happiness, and posing inside HAPPY PLACE‘s signature rubber ducky bathtub of fun! And, let’s not forget 7-foot stilettos made of a million candies and 6-foot-tall X and O letters made out of thousands of tiny mirrors, surrounded by a wall of one thousand red lips!
Adults will love this experience, too. My kids asked to go back again – and, I think we will. Kids 4 and under get in for FREE, adults are $35. The best part about it is the staff will take pictures for you and they don’t rush you through the exhibits at all. There’s even a lemonade stand, a grill cheese stand and cotton candy at the end.
Check out some of our memories we made:
This summer – get out of the house, get the kids off the iPad, take advantage of the short amount of time we have with them and find a happy place of your own to make memories. And, if you’re in Chicago…. check out Happy Place Chicago before they leave town August 8th! You can read more and purchase tickets here.
