Crayola Experience Coming to The Shops at Willow Bend

We are so excited to welcome the Crayola Experience to Plano’s The Shops at Willow Bend in spring 2018!

The hands-on attraction will measure 60,000 square feet and will be situated between the food court and Macy’s.

Plano’s Crayola Experience location will be the company’s fourth attraction, joining the ranks of the original Crayola Experience in Easton, Pennsylvania which continues to attract more than 400,000 visitors a year, and in Orlando, Florida, as well as Bloomington, Minnesota.

What to Expect

While known for its crayons, markers and colored pencils, the 114-year-old company now has more than 1,500 proprietary products and technologies — the inspiration for the hands-on activities and live entertainment at each Crayola Experience. With the average family spending three to four hours at a Crayola Experience, it gives the company a good platform to display new products.

“Crayola Experience is more than just an attraction,” Crayola CEO Smith Holland. “It’s a place where families come together to create, play and make memories that will last a lifetime. When we visited Plano, we saw a friendly, growing, family-oriented community, and we can’t wait to be a dynamic and colorful part of it.”

Plano’s location will include a 5,000-square-foot retail store and will be open 365 days a year.
