And a chocolate chip cookie room which has been described as stepping foot into a cookie "complete with the aroma of fresh baked cookies," exhibitors say.
According to its founder Jared Paul the traveling multi-sensory exhibit which initially premiered in November of 2017 "has brought smiles to the faces of people from all ages and backgrounds as well as been a mecca of joy for celebrities," he said in a release.
Paul, who is veteran talent manager and producer has managed Boston's New Kids on the Block and spearheaded the “Boston Strong” benefit concert following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings.
He says that the project was inspired by his mission to provide a beacon of positivity and encouraging people to come together and embracing happiness.
'It’s been incredible to see all of the smiles created and lives it has touched so far,” he said. “Boston is one of my favorite cities, and I’m thrilled to help them find their happy and see how the city will express itself using Happy Place.”
But, happiness isn't free. Admission to capture the ultimate happy photo for the gram or boomerang loop will costs $30-per person for adults and $20 for children ages 4 to 12. In addition you'll need to reserve a time slot to visit in advance though their website www.happyplace.me.
