Come to the happy side where people can unwind and let go. Set in Los Angeles, California, HAPPY PLACE is a massive pop-up experience filled with larger-than-life size installations, multi-sensory immersive rooms, and dozens of moments curated to Capture Your Happy, including an upside-down room called “Dancing on the Ceiling,” where visitors can do just that. People wander around the room, jump on objects, hang from the ceiling, perform acrobatics from different angles, and eventually share their upended fun on Instagram and other social media channels.
