Crayola Experience Grand Opening
March 23, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
Crayola Experience Plano, Texas’s newest and most colorful family destination, will open at The Shops at Willow Bend on Friday, March 23. Come see the crayon-wrapper ribbon-cutting and featured speakers Crayola CEO Smith Holland and Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere at 9:45 am in the Macy’s Court.
The 60,000 square-foot concept is a new addition to the shopping center and is situated between the food court and Macy’s. The Crayola Store also will open on March 23. This 5,000 square-foot retail store has the world’s largest selection of Crayola products and unique souvenirs, such as plush and apparel. The retail store will be open to the public, regardless of whether they choose to visit the entire experience or not.
Crayola Experience will feature 22 hands-on attractions inspired by Crayola products and technologies. Guests can do things such as name and wrap their own Crayola crayon (Wrap It Up!), star in a coloring page (Be a Star), create melted wax spin-art (Drip Art) and learn how crayons are made in a live Factory Show. There also will be two new attractions that debut in Texas – Silly Selfies and Kaleidoscope.
This is the fourth location for Crayola Experience, which also has facilities in Orlando, Florida, at Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, and in Easton, Pennsylvania. General admission is $20.99 at the door or $18.99 online. Annual passes are $30.99. Kids under three are free. Purchase tickets here.
No charge to watch the grand opening ribbon cutting in Macy’s Court.
