Happy Place, an interactive, immersive pop-up experience with larger-than-life installations and multi-sensory themed rooms, is now open at its newest location in Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. On a mission to spread happiness across the world, “the most Instagrammable pop-up in America” (Urban Daddy) has helped people of all ages “find their happy” while exploring multiple vibrant rooms (Photo credit: Lexi Colvin).
Happy Place was joyfully welcomed to Las Vegas with a grand opening event on Thursday, Aug. 22, which was attended by local celebrities including Adam London, David Goldrake, Hans Klok, Jabbawockeez, Marc Savard and Xavier Mortimer, as well as the casts of Australian Bee Gees, FANTASY, FRIENDS! the Musical Parody, Legends in Concert, Tenors of Rock, Thunder From Down Under, X Burlesque, X Country and X Rocks. With bites and beverages provided by House of Blues, smiles were contagious throughout the night.

Happy Place features 15,000 square feet of playful spaces and cheerful moments including a Super Bloom room filled with 40,000 handmade gold flowers for the perfect photogenic floral backdrop, an Upside Down room that defies gravity and bends reality, six-foot tall X’s and O’s covered in thousands of mirrored squares and surrounded by red lips, the World’s Largest Indoor Confetti Dome, a Giant Rainbow complete with a Pot of Happiness into which guests can jump, the signature Rubber Ducky Bathtub of Fun, the wildly popular Cookie Room, which is like stepping inside of your favorite chocolate chip cookie complete with the aroma of fresh baked cookies, the just-added life-size Unicorn named Cornelius, plus other photo-friendly fantasy rooms. Turning Sin City into “Grin City,” Happy Place’s popular backyard is Las Vegas-themed with its own take on the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign with five-foot HAPPY letters and a 10-foot tall slot machine where guests can slide into a jackpot of coins.

Happy Place at Mandalay Bay also features its Lemonade Stand, where net proceeds benefit a different local non-profit each month, starting in September, with the Tyler Robinson Foundation. TRF is the nonprofit organization of the GRAMMY Award-winning band Imagine Dragons and is dedicated to supporting children battling childhood cancer. Additional local non-profit partners for future months will be announced soon.
With the perfect background to countless once-in-a-lifetime moments, Happy Place offers an extraordinary whimsical experience for groups of all sizes and ages, from birthday parties to date night to bachelorette parties. The pop-up has been the site of more than a dozen marriage proposals and prom-posals plus hundreds of first dates and private parties.
General admission tickets start at $30 plus additional fees at HappyPlace.me/tickets. Family or Group Four Packs also will be available at select sessions. Based on sold out runs in previous cities, Happy Place advises guests to book in advance. The exhibit is available for private bookings. Email privateevents@
