The 60,000-square-foot Crayola Experience at the Mall of America is a family attraction that provides 25 hands-on creative opportunities for kids and adults to explore art and technology in a new way. Guest experiences include “Wrap it Up!” where the user can name and wrap their own crayons; “Be A Star,” where the user can feature in a coloring page; “Color Magic,” which brings the coloring page to life in 4-D; and a live Factory Show where the user can experience how crayons are made. Crayola Experience also offers a Café with a full-service kitchen and The Crayola Store, which provides a selection of Crayola products and souvenirs.
