Plano’s newest and most colorful attraction, the Crayola Experience at The Shops at Willow Bend, is an amazing place where visitors can explore the 60,000 square foot attraction that Parents Magazine calls one of the “Top 10 Trips to Take Before Your Kid Turns 10.”
Plano’s Crayola Experience location is 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 at the Crayola Experience
Experience 22 hands-on attractions inspired by Crayola products and their technologies. Visitors can name and wrap their own Crayola crayon, star in a coloring page, create melted wax spin-art, and learn how crayons are made in a live factory show. There are also two new attractions that debuted in Texas: Silly Selfies and Kaleidoscope.
“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 includes a 5,000-square-foot retail store selling the world’s largest selection of Crayola products and unique souvenirs, such as plush items and apparel. This venue is perfect for hosting private events, group trips, and birthday parties. General admission is $20.99 at the door or $18.99 online. Annual passes are $30.99. Kids under three are free.
