Cookie Room and Candy Café announced for Canadian premiere of pop-up phenomenon, HAPPY PLACE

A Cookie Room and canoe mural have just been announced as a few of the never-before-seen, made-for-Canada rooms added to the roster of HAPPY PLACE, an interactive, immersive exhibit with larger-than-life installations and multi-sensory themed rooms. Initially launched in Los Angeles, the mission of the exhibit is to spread happiness across the world.

Making its first international stop in Toronto, ON, happiness comes in the form of the world’s largest indoor confetti dome with half a million pieces of confetti, a 20-foot-tall double rainbow that encourages visitors to jump into a pot of happiness, 7-foot stilettos made of a million candies and a superbloom room with over 15,000 immersive flowers. HAPPY PLACE features 20,000 sq. ft. of whimsical spaces and happy moments.

With more than 10 fun-filled, extravagantly styled rooms in which to capture your happy, HAPPY PLACE is a great setting for the family holiday photo or your new Instagram profile pic.
