Lately I have been feeling as if a lot of the Pop-Ups are similar – a ball pit, a swing, and a photo booth. But, Coach’s Pop-Up was next level – bringing “immersive” to the next degree with carnival games, postcards, cotton candy, horoscopes, tarot readings, and a blank canvas room with markers for you to write all over!
You start off receiving a bag of coins which you can use on different stops in the Pop-Up. The first stop is a white room where people are encouraged to grab a bucket of markers and stickers to decorate the room. You are able to spend as much time as you want drawing and sketching. You then head into the carnival room which is meant to resemble Coney Island. There is a Zoltar machine (where you can use a coin to get your fortune), a hammer game, spin-the-wheel, and even a station to write postcards to your future self. A cute touch! You then walk through to another room which resembled a forest, with various tarot card readers. Note: you can only use the tarot card service if you were one of the lucky ones to get a rose gold coin in your coin bag. This is done completely random! When you leave, you also receive a little envelope with your horoscope.
Definitely one of the cooler pop-ups I have seen lately. When you have a busy schedule running from meetings and class you need to pick and choose! You are able to secure your tickets here on Eventbrite. Tickets are running out fast, walk-ins are allowed but not encouraged due to the overflow of people in the rooms. Although I had a ticket they were backed up and I ended up going in a half an hour late, so plan accordingly!
