If you can’t tell by now, we love to eat, so Cheat Day is what we plan for weekly. When we heard about Cheat Day Land coming to Irvine Spectrum, we thought it would be a fun & perfect way to celebrate one of our favorite days of the week.

Cheat Day Land gives you an excuse to cheat by immersing yourself in a delicious and fun pop up museum exhibition at the Irvine Spectrum Center.”

Destination Irvine

We’ve been to many of the other interactive pop-up museums like Museum of Ice Cream, Happy Place, Color Factory in SF & LA. Since Cheat Day Land opened up not too far from my sister’s house in Irvine, plus it’s for the foodies who love to indulge like us, we knew it was a must visit when we were in town.

If you’ve never been to one of these interactive pop-ups, guests are taken on a guided tour that takes approximately an hour. Pump some iron in the donut gym, ride on the donut swings, make your way out of an oversized cereal bowl, jump on a skillet trampoline and try to look cool on the food wall (major fail for our group) take countless amounts of photos in all of the delectable spaces. There is so much to see, experience and pretend to eat—Cheat Day Land is a place where adults can release their inner child and kids can have fun.

It is definitely the most interactive of the museums we’ve been to, but it wasn’t our favorite. Check out our pics (below) and their Instagram to decide for yourself. As with all of the interactive museums, its always more fun with friends.
