Time Out says

Happy Place lets you feel like an influencer for the day – get ready to take lots of selfies

Melbourne is about to get a lot more Instagrammable with the opening of Happy Place.

The larger-than-life immersive exhibition is an influencer's dream. Grab a friend to take with you, this is an experience that is meant to be shared both IRL and on the grid. You'll need someone to take cute pictures of you in the world's largest confetti dome, someone to play six-foot-tall noughts and crosses with, and someone to help you in and out of the rubber ducky bathtub (and do the same for them).

While you're there, take a bit of time to appreciate the elements that can't be posted to your grid. In the absence of smell-o-vision, your followers won't be able to appreciate the Cookie Room that actually smells like freshly baked cookies – but you can.

Happy Place has multiple sessions a day to keep capacity both Covid safe and to ensure that everyone has a chance to get the perfect pic for your grid.

The pop-up has sold out all around the world, so make sure you get your tickets quickly. And for Pete's sake, clean your camera lens.
