Coming this summer to The Florida Mall, Crayola Experience is sure to be much more than most of us imagined! Speaking of imagination – it’s sure to be a top spot to let yours run wild! This is the second Crayola Experience location, with the first being in Easton, PA.
Crayola Experience will feature 25 interactive, creativity-inspiring stations spread across two levels, totaling 70,000 square feet of fun. The full experience is expected to be a 4-5 hour adventure in science, technology, art, and inspired originality. Annual passes will be offered for only $29.99, which is a very small increase to the General Admission one-day ticket ($19.99). Both ticket options are already available for online purchase. Crayola Experience will be open daily, with varied hours. Crayola Experience will offer dining at Crayola Cafe – accommodating up to 200 guests. Additionally, group rates and party space are available.
Who doesn’t love the Crayola brand? There is no age limit on creativity, and this is a brand that has built up a generational standard!
