BRIDGEWATER, N.J. (NOVEMBER 8, 2021): Bridgewater Commons, the more than 1.2 million square foot shopping, dining and entertainment center in Somerset County, N.J., announced today it is teaming with BAYMO, the creators of wildly-popular, one-of-a-kind immersive experiences, to bring POP!, a unique, fantasyland photo playground with over 20 explorable places and countless surprises around every corner, to the Garden State.
Opening Friday, Nov. 26 (Black Friday) at 10 a.m., POP! at Bridgewater Commons will quickly become a must-visit entertainment venue offering a carnival of creative spaces and modern places, paired with state-of-the-art, multimedia technology, in which to capture unforgettable, sharable photos and videos.
“A truly remarkable experience, we are thrilled to offer this exclusive attraction here at Bridgewater Commons,” said Marketing Director Tom Kovacic. “Opening our new activation in a 5,000 square foot space has given its creators the ability for even more whimsy and innovation which we know will instantly ‘wow’ the thousands of Bridgewater Commons guests we expect to entertain over this limited time engagement.”
“POP! at Bridgewater Commons is all things color, fun, art, lights and cameras,” explains BAYMO Team Member Scot Redman. “The experience is full of pop culture references, multimedia visuals and more where our unique floor plan allows for multiple visits as guests can alter their individual experience each time through.”
The exterior of POP! at Bridgewater Commons greets guests with an array of vintage TVs continually updating with visuals and videos reminiscent of the 1950s. Guests enter through a lobby designed in the style of a New York City bodega. And, as they make their way inside, curious visitors find themselves in a 1970s laundromat with retro machines, checkered floors and all the sounds of that specific experience.
Around every corner secret entrances lead to thrills and surprises. As they make a turn, visitors may find themselves inside a laundry machine, a curved photography studio or in a vibrant tunnel of music and light. Spectacular photo opportunities, each complemented with lighting and sound, allow for sharable photos and videos. Professionally processed and sent directly to mobile phones, photos are instantaneously ready to be posted, shared and enjoyed. Hard-copy prints may also be purchased and printed on-demand in the POP! gift shop at the conclusion of the experience.
Located on the Lower Level across from Build-A-Bear Workshop, reservations for POP! at Bridgewater Commons are best made online at www.bridgewaterpop.com where guests will find the entertainment venue’s operating hours. Tickets are now on sale where pricing starts at $22 for adults and $8 for children under 12. Group discounts are available. POP! at Bridgewater Commons will run through May 31, 2022.
Keeping guests safe is top priority. With full COVID-19 safety strategies in place, BAYMO aims to ensure visitors’ safety without compromising fun through high-frequency cleanings, face mask requirements (except when taking photos), entirely touchless photo booths and a space twice as big that is designed to allow distance between each group of guests.
