We Visited Happy Place in Toronto and Here’s our Honest Review

Posted by on Nov 26, 2018 in blog

Happy Place has touched down in Toronto, and this vibrant pop-up has been all over social media. The reviews have been a bit rough, so we visited it firsthand to see whether this insta-worthy spot is worth the hype. Right off the bat, the two biggest pieces of criticisms were the lines, and the ticket prices. Monday/Wednesday/Thursday: $32.50 incl HST Friday/Saturday/Sunday: $39.50 incl HST Tickets seem a bit pricey when comparing them to other activities like cineplex or the ROM, but considering the pop-up is only open for a limited window, and similar pop-ups such as Museum of Ice Cream costs approx $38, we think it’s worth the money. Kids under 4 are free, which is an added bonus.     So as you enter rooms, you can’t actually backtrack – so make sure you’re ready to leave before you move on. We went on a Wednesday at 3:00PM, and lines were non-existent. Around 3:30 it got a little bit busy, but there’s definitely enough content in each room to be entertained while you wait. Happy Place is set up for Instagram – there are multiple angles that you can experience (and photograph) each room in.     Our highlight was definitely the confetti dome – let us know what you think! We give Happy Place a 10/10....

It examined the demographics and habits of individuals regarding their consumption of news from various channels including T.V., online sites, print magazines or newspapers or from social media sites. Consumers of news from social media platforms were then asked various questions to gain more insight into their behaviours and habits. The most popular website for news consumption continues to be Facebook with YouTube coming in second followed by Twitter in third place. Across the board, respondents replied that while they did not always believe everything they read on social sites they head to them because these websites are a very convenient way to get caught up on the all of the latest news.
