Dopamine Land / Fever

A multisensory experience including a giant pillow fight, ball pit and musical squares is coming to Manchester.

The new experience called ‘Dopamine Land’ combines media, technology and play in one place and promises to ‘channel the limitless imagination of your inner child into reality’. 

It will be a magical place where families can immerse themselves in a variety of experiences to delight the senses at Manchester Arndale this September.

Dopamine Land, which came to London last summer, will be coming to Manchester Arndale on September 14th and is organised by Fever – the company behind the immersive Van Gogh, Kimt and Monet experiences, as well as the Candlelight Concerts.

Providing a world of happiness and an escape from the outside world, the organisers claim each room uses a mixture of sensory experiences to heighten levels of dopamine — known as the ‘feel good’ chemical.

Commenting on the launch, organisers said: “Fever’s new immersive experience transports guests into a different imaginary realm, full of optical illusions, sound effects and themed rooms for the ultimate sensory overload.”

There will be nine different rooms for visitors to discover and interact with, each of a different theme to heighten dopamine levels through different ways — and all will look great on the ‘Gram.

Of the themed rooms coming to Manchester, there will be: a Pillow Fight room, a Ball Pool room, a Musical Squares room, a Calm Forest room, an Infinity room, and more.

Visitors will begin their journey through Dopamine Land in the Reset room, as the switch-off from the world outside, decompress and get ready to start their feel good experience.

The experience was hugely popular in London last year with Secret London describing it as an ‘Instagrammer’s paradise which allows people to ‘relive the joy of childhood imagination’. 

Fever hopes to replicate its London success when they bring Dopamine Land to Manchester. The event is open to all ages and tickets for the experience go on sale on August 2nd at 11am. 

Tickets cost £8.50 for kids up to 15 years old and £13.00 for over 16s. 

There will also be family bundles available at £10 per person and group bookings for over eight people at £11 per person. To book tickets click HERE.

The legendary Manchester Flower Festival is returning to our city later this month, complete with pop-ups, installations and tributes to some local icons.

Taking place over the late May Bank Holiday, the event will be headlined by its ‘Floral Trail’.

This year’s theme is Manchester Icons, with a host of names past and present being honoured in flower form, including the late comedy legend Caroline Aherne, pop star Sarah Harding and suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst.

Collaborating with Manchester illustrator Stanley Chow, floral designer Liv Woodward will create a portrait of Caroline Aherne at the Floral Marquee on New Cathedral Street, using sustainably sourced plants and flowers.

Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding will be remembered in a ‘tribute garden’, sponsored by the AO Arena, with visitors able to donate to the Sarah Harding Breast Cancer Appeal by scanning the QR code at the display.

The homage to Pankhurst has been created by female-led Decordia, featuring an ornate wooden Manchester Town Hall-inspired planter with sashes, posters and colourful icons, alongside a wicker figure of the suffragette herself.

This can be found at the corner of Cross Street and King Street, adorned with purple, green and white plants – the colours of the suffragette movement.

Other local legends will also be honoured with their own installations, including Happy Mondays vocalist Rowetta and iconic Manchester brewery Boddingtons .

Fringe events will be taking place too, at locations including Northern Quarter art shop Fred Aldous, The Bridgewater Hall, the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel and the National Trust’s Castlefield Viaduct.

Selfridges Exchange Square, El Gato Negro, Tast Catala, Franco Manca, Grand Pacific Manchester and Urban Playground will also be taking part, with alfresco dining, festival-related dishes and cocktails.
