What are your hours of operation?

Crayola Experience hours vary depending on the time of year. Daily operating hours and special events are always posted on our calendar. We recommend allowing at least 3-4 hours for your visit to ensure you can try each and every attraction!

How much is admission?

Tickets are $27.99 plus tax per person. Children 2 and under are FREE.

Annual Passes, which include unlimited visits and exclusive perks, start at just $37.99. That's less than the price of two General Admission tickets!

Yes, you can purchase tickets at a cashier or kiosk on site. However, purchasing tickets online will save you moolah! And general admission tickets are good for one year from date of purchase. 

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept major credit cards, debit cards, and most payment apps. We can accept cash, but we do not accept personal checks. We will accept organizational checks for group reservations.

Do I need reservations or timed tickets?

No. Your Crayola Experience tickets are valid for one year from the purchase date and you can use them at any time. When you are ready to visit, just bring your tickets to the access area of the attraction.

If you previously purchased timed-entry general admission tickets, you can use them at the indicated time. However, if your plans change, you can use them at any time before they expire without having to reschedule. Timed entries are no longer available. 

How long are general admission tickets good for?

Your Crayola Experience general admission tickets are valid for one year from the purchase date. You can use them at any time. When you are ready to visit, just bring your tickets to the access area of the attraction.

I lost/forgot my annual pass. Can I still gain entry today?

All annual passes must be presented upon arrival. If you do not have your annual pass, there is a $5.00 replacement fee per card. If you have not yet received your permanent annual pass, but have a temporary pass, please present the temporary pass at the admissions desk and you will be issued your permanent pass.

Do you offer group rates?

Yes, for groups of 15 or more paying guests there is a group rate discount.

How long should I plan on staying there?

Bigger than an NFL football field, most families spend 3-4 hours exploring our attractions. While our Color Crew staff are always available all activities are self-guided, so you get to go at your own pace and stay as long as you would like!  We even have our Snack Shack and Café Crayola inside the attraction so you don't need to leave for a bite to eat or a refreshment.  

Where can I park?

There is plenty of free parking at the Mall of America where we are located. We recommend parking at P4 Florida on the south side of the East parking ramp.  A enclosed skyway bridge runs directly from Level P4 in the East parking structure directly to our entrance and mall.  

Is re-entry allowed?

Yes! Once you purchase your admission, it is valid until closing time that day. Be sure to get a wrist band before exiting if you would like to re-enter that same day.

Is there any place to eat lunch?

You can purchase lunch and snacks at the Snack Shack (hours may vary) or Café Crayola (currently closed), which are located inside the attraction area. There are also a number of restaurants in the Mall of America.

No outside food and/or beverages are permitted inside the Crayola Experience attraction.

How should the kids dress?

Crayola Experience is a fun-filled play day for your kids. So, dress for mess, not Sunday best. Most children wear play clothes when visiting the Crayola Experience.

Are there hand sanitizer stations available?

Yes. In fact, we’ve added additional hand sanitizer stations throughout the attraction. These stations are checked regularly, but please contact a team member if you see one that needs to be refilled. We also encourage guests to use our restroom facilities frequently to wash their hands for 20 seconds or more.

Is there a Crayola retail store?

Yes. We have The Crayola Store where you can shop the largest selection of Crayola products in the world with one-of-a-kind Crayola souvenirs. There are two entrances to the store, one from inside the Mall of America and one from the Crayola Experience attraction.

The Crayola Store is open to the public; admission to Crayola Experience is not required. See store hours and more HERE!
