Crayola Experience coming to Chandler in 2019

CHANDLER, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Crayola announced it's bringing one of five of its brand-based attractions to the Chandler Fashion Center.

"It's all about experiencing the creative process and creating and making family memories," Victoria Lozano said.

The full Crayola Experience will include 21,000 square feet of 19 hands-on coloring and digital learning activities.

The company says their brand is creating opportunities for family experiences and the city of Chandler was at the top of their list.

"Families are very important to us, education is very important to us," Mayor of Chandler Rene Lopez said. "We have a lot of partnerships together with all of our school districts and we work and it enhances the community and Crayola is right there one of them... very family-oriented."

Along with city and the company's announcement, Chandler Fashion Center also unveiled that the Crayola attraction will be opening in mid-2019 near the west side of the food court, next to Nordstrom.

"We really focused on the experience and how do we grow that experience with the stores that we have and also the restaurants and entertainment and Crayola really fit that for us," David Moss said. "We are so excited because this is their fifth in the country, so we're super excited for that because you don't get to experience this hardly anywhere and now you get to experience it right here in Arizona, in Chandler."
