“Our Crayola Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Great place to visit for adults and children of all ages. It was great to see how crayons are made and the method has not changed much since 1903. Four floors loaded with different free activities for the children. High tech inactivate equipment to create a peak experiences for all. As a grandparent you can set back and enjoy the engagement from a distance or up close. With selected colors you can personalize a crayon yourself. There popcorn,soda from vending machines and different shows throughout the day. Hours 10-6 and those 8 hours are enough. Lol

“Great day trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Had a great time at the Crayola Experience with my kids (ages 2 & 6) and my mother in law. At first I was a little apprehensive seeing that several of the activities required tokens however the 3 tokens they provide per person ended up being plenty and I did not feel the need to buy more (or do any of the activities with extra fees involved for that matter). You can purchase tokens at several kiosks throughout the facility (50 cents a piece). We went on a weekday and it definitely got crowded as the morning progressed but we were still able to do everything we wanted to do. The climbing/playground structure was definitely a little crazy and I opted not to let my 6 year old do it because there were much older kids inside. The craft activities were fun and the staff were helpful. My daughter loved using the iPad to draw and was thrilled to be able to email her picture to dad who was at work that day. The model magic tools were also a hit (and they sell the same tools in the store/gift shop). The activities on the top floor were very crowded by the time we got up there. I wish we had started at that level first and worked our way down. We had to wait in line but it moved quickly. The store is really neat and there are some reasonably priced items and unique things…we had fun shopping. The Crayola website mentions street parking that does not involve meters or paying however I didn't bother to look for them. We parked in the garage behind Crayola - $2 per hour - which just seemed easier.

Tips:
-look for discounts online and print your tickets at home before you go so you can head right in when you get there (I found tickets online for under $14 a person)

-arrive right when they open (even a few minutes early as they were letting people in before the posted opening time when we were there)

-go to the top floor and work your way down...the activities on the top floor require more time to complete than the others so they seemed to get more crowded and had long lines as the day progressed

-Get your hand stamped for re-entry and walk around the corner to Cheeburger Cheeburger for lunch...great place and the kids loved it!

-If the climbing play area is too crowded, be sure to stop by Frozenlandia next door to Crayola for some frozen yogurt and their indoor climbing structure (much smaller obviously but there were hardly any people there when we went and it was just right for younger kids). I even found a coupon on the Frozenlandia website when we went.

What a great place for kids! This time they truly enjoyed making their own crayons and using the laptop that projected their drawings! They also love the big screen!!!!

“DON'T Waste your money!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We thought that this would be a nice break in our travels......we were very wrong! It was so crowded and people were not polite. Lines for everything and they were not well laid out so people kept cutting and we had trouble getting around with a small stroller. I felt really bad for the people with side by side strollers.

Horrible bathrooms (really one or two stalls per floor for a children's place???), no paper towels, only found 1 place with water fountains in the whole place, coins only given to the kids (even though everyone's admission was the same price), no idea what the coins were able to do so we ran out very quickly, everything cost more coins or money (very little signage about this), VERY EXPENSIVE!


THE only two things that were good were the Canal exhibit and the show about how crayons were made. However, why couldn't they hand out a small box of crayons to each of the kids who watched the show is beyond me?

“Kids enjoyed it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

This was our 3rd time at Crayola. Took my 12 & 14 year old kids & my niece's 2 & 6 year old. All the kids had a great time. We got the $3 off coupon which helped. It was very crowded compared to our previous visits but still lots of fun for the kids, as long as they're patient.
