at $18 bucks a head you would expect more than three coins to make a single crayon, a single marker and a small lump of molding clay. The biggest problem was the lines though. They allowed in about three times as many people in as they should have. Just to make a single crayon, you had to wait in a line twenty people deep. To melt a crayon into a shape had a 45 min - 1 hour wait. You couldn't hear the person next to you talk unless you were inches from them and your kids couldn't run around at all - we had to hold their hand just so we didn't lose them. We could only stay for an hour at a time before the noise level and crowds started to make the kids want to leave. We went for lunch and came back and tried a second time and it was just as crowded.
Even if there were no crowds, this would probably not have been worth the money. Everywhere you went they were asking for even more money from you. You really had no idea how things were made as all you got to do was push buttons to create your crayon and your marker. The kids wanted to create and play, but instead they just got to push buttons and stand in lines.
I went to this place about fifteen years ago when it was called the crayola factory and it was wonderful. There was a lot to do and it actually resembled the factory it is located near. It was such a disappointment. We did end up getting our money back, with a explanation that they got more people than expected because of the rainy. I will certainly let everyone know to stay away from this attraction.
