Crayola Experience Opens in Orlando

Crayola Experience

The Crayola Experience opened in July 2015 and Theme Park University was invited to check out Orlando’s newest attraction!

Crayola ExperienceThis location, which is part of the Florida Mall, is actually the second Crayola Experience to open.The first is located in Easton, Pennsylvania, which is home of the Crayola Factory.

Think of this attraction like an indoor interactive theme park like DisneyQuest or the Legoland Discovery Center.

Tickets give you a day’s admission for all activities and attractions, excluding a few up charge experiences.

Crayola ExperiencePrices are quite reasonable, especially for an annual pass.I spent two hours at Crayola Experience and had a great time. I could have easily spent more time there if I had brought kids.  If you buy online in advance, you can save $3 on all admission, excluding annual passes.

Crayola ExperienceAll the attractions are located on the second floor of the 70,000-square-foot building. Seriously, this place is pretty massive.

It goes without saying that the Crayola Experience is geared toward the younger crowd and nearly every attraction is a hands on activity that gives kids a chance to expand their creativity and use their imagination.

After presenting your admission ticket, guests are given a souvenir bag with two tokens and a park map. Those tokens can be used for attractions like Modeling Madness.

Crayola ExperienceOne token gets you one of these packets full of moldable colored clay available in these vending machines. If you want more than one, they are available for purchase.

You can then take the clay and bring it over to a station where you can mold them into shapes using various kid-friendly tools.

Naturally, you can also color your creation with Crayola markers.

Your other attraction that will cost you a token is Wrap It Up. Guests choose a color crayon and can create their own custom wrapper.

Once the label is made, you bring it over to the wrapping station where you roll it directly on to the crayon which pops right out of the machine!

Crayola ExperienceIf you want multiple custom crayons, you can purchase more tokens. I’m quite proud of my Theme Park University Crayola Crayon!

Crayola Experience

All other attractions are included with the price of admission and require no extra fees.

Crayola Experience

Melt & Mold gives you the chance to take home a crayon in the form of a shark, ring, seahorse or race car.

Crayola Experience

As advertised, you choose a crayon color and melt it down to a liquid form where it sits in a die-cast mold and forms your desired shape, but still serves as a crayon!

Drip Art also melts down crayons, but in this version, it drips down onto a spinning sheet of paper and you can control the speed. A new spin on a timeless arts and crafts project.

In Art Alive! guests can digitally paint sea creatures using virtual crayons and markers via touch sensitive screens.

After you’re done creating your masterpiece, you can see it float around the giant video wall.

Crayola ExperienceFor me, the highlight of the Crayola Experience was a live theater show called the Crayon Factory. Since the Orlando location doesn’t double as an actual Crayola production facility, this stage show gives guests a glimpse on how the real factory works.

On stage is real working equipment that is used to make actual crayons right in front of you.

Crayola ExperienceThe show gives you a live shot of what is going on and breaks down the process so adults and children can understand. Considering I was in a room full of children on field trips and they were loudly reacting to crayons popping out of the mold, kids seem to love the presentation.

Crayola Experience

There are a lot more attractions and things to see and do here, plus there are party rooms available for rent.

Even a small food court and snack stand!

The merchandise store is downstairs which can be accessed within the Florida Mall, which doesn’t require admission.
