Due to the surge in Covid-19 cases and with the health and safety of patrons as our highest priority, we've made the difficult decision to pause Happy Place.

Live Nation and Crown Melbourne will be in touch with additional information including when you can experience Happy Place as soon as possible.

For further information contact Ticketmaster or email info@happyplace.melbourne

Thank you for your understanding.


HAPPY PLACE is a massive pop-up experience that is filled with smiles, laughs, one-of-a-kind installations, multi-sensory immersive rooms, and a whole lot of selfie moments that you don’t want to miss! We believe that our world today can use a lot more happiness. To make this dream come true, we set out on a journey to create a special place where anyone who walks in is surrounded by all things happy!

First opening it's doors in 2007 in the heart of Los Angeles and following sold-out residencies in Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Sydney and Auckland, Happy Place is the place for you to 'GET YOUR HAPPY BACK' which is exactly what you need to have on your post lockdown bucket list.  Our innovative experience has multiple rooms to explore and escape to that offer plenty of fun, laughter and most importantly, happiness.

HAPPY PLACE is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Featuring larger-than-life, fanciful and exceptionally playful installations and multi-sensory immersive rooms, you can get snap-happy in the world’s largest indoor Confetti Dome, six-foot-tall X’s and O’s surrounded by red lips, the famed Rubber Ducky Bathtub, the wildly popular Cookie Room scented with the aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and much more!
