Today (July 1), the new Crayola Experience opens at the Florida Mall in Orlando, to entertain families. Yesterday, my family and I had a chance to preview the Crayola Experience during a media event.
I was unsure what to expect as this is a new experience in Orlando. The original Crayola Experience, however, has been open for over 18 years in Easton, Pennsylvania, and this Orlando location marks their second location. So we went with an open mind, as well as a lot of excitement. Who doesn’t love Crayola, right?
Among the many celebrities that will be immortalized in wax at the new Madame Tussauds Orlando is actor Johnny Depp.
The attention to detail shown to Depp and the other wax figures that will be at the Orlando location is amazing and truly life-like.
