The Activity Studio is a “larger than life” craft area that has everything you need to create your own masterpiece! There are tons of arts & crafts projects to try your hand at. This can include making a mask of a mythical creature, or crafting a Crayola guitar! The craft options change from month to month, so there will always be something new to make. There are also themed seasonal activities for all skill levels, and no age limit to participate. Cut, color, and paste your way into a great time!
Chaos and Creativity Show
The Crayola Experience debuted a new show this year, the Chaos and Creativity Show. This is the first fully animated theater show at this location! The show features Crayola’s crayon characters that star in the show with two new friends, Periwinkle and Cat. During the show, guests will join the Crayola friends working “behind the scenes” at the Crayola Experience Command Central. Then, a new intern comes along to run the show. The characters get caught up in some silly antics, but of course there is a happy message hidden within it. It is a perfect show for the whole family.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy some Crayola inspired foods! You can enjoy salads, chicken, pizza, pretzels, hot dogs and more. The kid’s meals are served in a Crayola lunch box and even include a special Crayola surprise inside! The Café Stage has daily live shows for guests to enjoy while they eat. During the live shows, you can learn about the science & magic of color behind popular Crayola products.
Be A Star
One of the coolest things you can do here is you can go into a coloring page photo booth and appear in your very own coloring page! You can appear by yourself, with your family, and even with some of Crayola’s characters! It operates like a real photobooth, so all you have to do is smile, pose, and push a button!
World’s Largest Crayon
Did you know that the world’s largest crayon calls the Crayola Experience home? “Bluetiful” is an enormous blue Crayola crayon that weighs 1,352 pounds and is 15.6 feet long. Although it is a bit too heavy to color with, be sure to check it out!
This two-story climber is very popular among the younger kids in your party! Kids can climb up a melted wax tower, bounce across a paint bridge, play through fun obstacle courses, and even slide out of a giant crayon box!
The Colossal Caddy is a huge crayon sculpture that holds thousands of crayons and is a great place to sit down and color your very own masterpiece! Grab a crayon and paper, because everyone can get together to enjoy this coloring experience!
Crayon Factory Show
In this fun and educational show, guests will join Crayola friends, Scarlet and Turk, as they show you how crayons are made. During the show, you will also learn why Crayola crayons are the best and you’ll learn lots of fun facts about the world’s most popular crayons!
