Where you'll be

Our San Francisco deployment location varies with the date and city activities. We often choose Union Square during winter holidays, Castro during Pride Week and Dolores Park during warm summer nights.

From the deployment location, we follow a loop route with points of interest that provide a dramatic setting for our bloom.

We went on this experience with our team from work and it was so much fun! Would absolutely recommend it to anyone who wants to let their freak flag fly! Just remember to never stop undulating. All your friends will be very jelly of you.

What a blast! I've never been a part of anything like this, and it completely exceed expectations. Patti and Rob's energy is contagious, and the amount of joy you see in the faces of the unsuspecting bystanders is incredibly rewarding.

This was my 2nd bloom, and it was just as magical as the 1st. Thank you for another amazing experience! I'll be back again soon.

This is just crazy fun! Patti and Rob are amazing hosts and they have created such a unique way of spreading joy throughout their city. It's hard to explain how fun it is to watch people's faces light up when they see a bloom of illuminated jellyfish dancing down the street. Do it!!!

Want IMMEDIATE access to why people love San Francisco? Do yourself a favor – trust humanity, embrace the unexpected, and DO THIS EXPERIENCE. I am SO GLAD my teammate suggested this as a goodbye celebration for one of our colleagues. MAN this how I want to spend every night: with a group of 12 new friends, with lit-up glowing tall puppets, EDM in the background, pure JOY on strangers' faces, impromptu dance parties, and people coming out of buildings and bars with cameras raised to dance through the Castro. This is a SIX STAR experience!

My oh my - sign up for this right now. This experience embodies San Francisco and the beauty of its people. Having lived in the city for 10 years, this was the perfect reminder of why I love it. Patti & Rob are gracious hosts with so much knowledge and love for the community. Their dedication to the power of the jellyfish is unwavering. Our group was the lucky bunch who got to take out the jellies during Pride week. The energy, smiles, and impromptu dance parties as we weaved through Dolores Park and Castro are things I am going to remember for years. I definitely plan on doing this again!! :)
