Crayola Experience to Open Summer 2019 in Chandler, Arizona
The High Tech Oasis is getting a huge splash of Crayola color.
The iconic family brand announced at a press conference today that it will open a Crayola Experience at Chandler Fashion Center next summer. This is the fifth location for the popular family attraction, which also has facilities in Orlando, Florida; Bloomington, Minnesota; Plano, Texas; and Easton, Pennsylvania - the home of Crayola crayons since 1903.
The 20,000 square-foot attraction will be situated near Kona Grill on the west side of the mall. It also will include a 4,000 square-foot retail space, The Crayola Store, which features the world's largest selection of Crayola products and unique souvenirs, such as plush toys and apparel. The store will be accessible to the public.
Although best known for its crayons and markers, the 115-year-old company now has more than 1,500 proprietary products and technologies, which serve as the inspiration for Crayola Experience's 19 hands-on activities.
