Put your hand up if you would be open to the idea of trading in your adulthood subscription? Flashing back to the days that were so much sweeter? What if we told you, that your dreams might have just become your reality?

Introducing Sugar Republic, Melbourne’s Insta-worthy, interactive exhibition. Relive your childhood memories as you explore 12 different rooms of fun. Make sure you take a dip in the ball pit, enjoy the swing in the fairy floss room, and try your luck spinning the Wheel O’ Treats. Better yet, jump out of a giant birthday cake and climb inside an enormous gumball machine! Oh, and did we mention that there is a ‘press for confetti’ button? It does exactly what you think it would do: showers you with an epic downpour of confetti.

The geniuses behind the exhibition are Creative Nation Australia. Melbourne creative Allison Jones drew her inspiration from similar exhibitions like Colour Factory and Museum of Ice Cream, initially earning her reputation through the Melbourne pop-up, which went totally wild!

Tickets to the must-see exhibition will be released September 3, with the first display opening up to the public on September 23. So what are you waiting for?! Your sugar rush and attempt to dodge all adult responsibilities is only a click away.

Where: Valley Metro Centre, 230 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006
When: 23 September – 21 October 2018
