Crayola Experience is to add a fifth US location to its attractions portfolio in Chandler, Arizona.
Due to open in Q2 2019 at the Chandler Fashion Centre, the 20,000sq ft (1,858sq m) facility will include interactuve features that allow visitors to name and wrap their own Crayola crayons, star in their own colouring page, use touch to make 4D art and create melted wax spin-art.
Also in the attraction will be a retail space called the Crayola Store, featuring Crayola products and souvenirs.
The Arizona location will add to existing Crayola Experiences in Orlando, Florida; Bloomington, Minnesota; Plano, Texas; and Easton, Pennsylvania.
"Crayola Experience is more than just an attraction – it's a dynamic and colourful place where families can come together to create, play and make memories that will last a lifetime," said Victoria Lozano, SVP & GM, Crayola Attractions & Retail.
"Our new Crayola Experience in Chandler perfectly aligns with its family-friendly community and we look forward to welcoming the community next year."
Ken Volk, SVP of business development at Macerich, which owns and operates Chandler Fashion Centre added: "Across our portfolio, we are adding dynamic new attractions and experiences – from art installations and entertainment venues to destination restaurants, virtual reality, upscale fitness and more – giving people and brands even more reasons to come to our market-leading centres.
"This unique attraction at Chandler Fashion Center reinforces Chandler's reputation as a community that embraces creativity and innovation."
The centre will be open 365 days per year and will create over 100 full and part-time jobs. It will offer the option of Annual family passes as well as standard ticketing.
