Merriam-Webster defines the word happy as “favored by luck or fortune; notably fitting, effective or well-adapted; enjoying or characterized by well-being and contentment.” Rather than cracking open the dictionary (app, that is) to discover the literal meaning of happiness, you could just buy a ticket to HAPPY PLACE. Following sold-out stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and Las Vegas, and a who’s who of celebrity guests—Adele, Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, and Philadelphia-bred mega DJs Marshmello and Diplo—the over-the-top interactive pop-up experience sets up shop at the former JCPenney at King of Prussia Mall Oct. 5 through Jan. 5.
Think of HAPPY PLACE as an Instagram wonderland: There’s larger-the-life unicorns to lounge on and a rubber-ducky-filled bathtub in which to splash around, plus surprise experiences with Philadelphia flair. “We’re excited to bring this unique, immersive, larger-than-life experience to King of Prussia,” says Geoff Gordon, regional president of Live Nation Philadelphia. “Just like when we opened the Met Philadelphia and the Fillmore, we will bring that same level of energy to HAPPY PLACE to create an experience like no other for the region.” Make sure your phone has a full charge.
