Giveaway- Pip’s Island Comes To NYC!

Pip’s Island Opens In The Times Square Area of New York City! We Have A Family 4 Pack Ticket Giveaway!

Our family is constantly on the prowl looking for great family fun adventures in NYC and the tri-state area. Recently we were invited to the newest show in town, Pip’s Island- located in the Times Square area of New York City. Pip’s Island in NYC is a must do for families! This immersive experience with transport you for the hustle and bustle of the city streets into a world far away. Your little explorer will be outfitted and briefed on how they (along with the group) can help to solve the mystery. Each room is filled with wonder and amazement unmatched to any other theater experience in NYC! Our family found Pip’s Island to be beyond incredible!

Is Pip’s Island a show? That was my big question. I could not wrap my head around what we would be seeing when we visited. So, let me explain it to you without any spoilers. First of all, Pip’s Island is not a show, it’s an immersive experience based on imagination. There are several rooms that you will venture through with your family. In each room there will be a separate adventure which all leads up to the end and helping to solve the big problem. As each room opens into the next you will be amazed! I don’t want to say too much because part of the enjoyment of going to Pip’s Island is the magic of the surprise of it all.

As you adventure though Pip’s Island your family will be introduced to the Spark Principles -Creativity, Adventure, Realization, and Empowerment.

What surprised our family the most was the amount of interaction in each room of the experience. Both the children and the parents will be involved in every step of the adventure at Pip’s Island.  As the journey begins in the map room the children will be outfitted with their own name tag, Pip’s Island vest and legendarium which they wear on their wrist. Everyone will join Expedition 12 in hopes to save the island and help to defeat Joules Volter, the villain. Each group of children and adults will be led through the experience by their own personal guide. Along the way there will be snow, performers, bigger than life characters, puppets and interactive sets. Each room will help to solve the adventure along the journey while you find your inner spark!


Pip’s Island is geared for children ages 4-11 but you have to be the judge of your children. This interactive immersive experience takes a little over an hour to go through. There is also a gift shop at the beginning/end so you can bring home a part of the magic. In addition there is a birthday party room so you can plan a party!

Directed by Academy Award winner Rob Marshall, who helmed screen adaptations of “Chicago,” “Nine” and “Into the Woods,” and starring Emily Blunt, Golden Globe®-nominated for her role as practically-perfect nanny Mary Poppins, and award-winning composer, lyricist and performer Lin-Manuel Miranda as charming lamplighter Jack, the fantastical film arrives into homes instantly on Digital 4K Ultra HD™/HD and Movies Anywhere now and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD March 19  – with a sing-along version and never-before-seen bonus features.
Bonus material explores the making of “Mary Poppins Returns,” going behind the scenes with the star-studded cast and crew who collaborated to make even the impossible possible. Extensive extras include a trip down Cherry Tree Lane with original cast member Dick Van Dyke, a sing-along version including the heartfelt Academy Award®-nominated “The Place Where Lost Things Go,” bloopers, deleted scenes, a deleted song and filmmaker commentary. Features also reveal the magic and moxie that went into creating large-scale musical production numbers, such as “Trip a Little Light Fantastic,” a rousing song-and-dance number led by Jack and his fellow lamplighters; “The Royal Doulton Music Hall” and “A Cover Is Not the Book,” showcasing the tremendous talents of  Blunt and Miranda; “Turning Turtle,” an upside-down sequence featuring Meryl Streep as Mary’s eccentric Cousin Topsy; and “Can You Imagine That?” an underwater adventure with Mary Poppins and the Banks children.
In “Mary Poppins Returns,” Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) – just a child when Mary Poppins first visited 17 Cherry Tree Lane – is now a grown man raising his children Annabel (Pixie Davies), John (Nathanael Saleh) and Georgie (Joel Dawson) with help from his sister Jane (Emily Mortimer). Times are tough in Depression-era London but the winds begin to change and the enigmatic governess, whose unique magical skills can turn any ordinary task into a fantastic adventure, enters the lives of the Banks family once again, having not aged a single day. Teaming up with an old friend, Jack, they take the Banks children on a series of whimsical adventures, encountering colorful characters like Mary’s eccentric Cousin Topsy (Streep), Jack’s lovable band of leeries and bank executives William Weatherall Wilkins (Colin Firth) and Mr. Dawes Jr. (Van Dyke) – bringing life, love and laughter back into the home.
