Candytopia in Philadelphia – A Visit with Kids & All the Sweet Fun There Is!

If you haven’t already heard…Candytopia opened this past weekend in Philadelphia. I wanted to pop on today to share with you my candy-covered experience there. Graham and I were invited to preview the event the day before it opened, which was really cool to be a part of – Brooks was invited as well, but sadly he has school every day now – he was so bummed he missed it, but don’t worry, I brought him home a special treat.

What is Candytopia?

Candytopia is an outrageously interactive candy wonderland that transports guests to an imaginative confectionary world with one-of-a-kind full sensory experiences—you can expect larger-than-life installations inspired by pure, sugary bliss throughout Candytopia’s dozen unique rooms, along with candy samples and lots of fun surprises.

Something all your senses will enjoy, especially if you’ve got a sweet tooth {like me!}

Each room – there are 14+ rooms – has a different theme or experience that is candy based. There are TONS of photo ops and interactive ways to enjoy the show and inside each room there is a different treat.

There was SO MUCH for the kids to enjoy – but I have to admit, I think Graham was sort of overwhelmed by it all {also possibly on a sugar high} and we zipped through a lot of the rooms really quick. We also went at a time when – since it was pre-show opening – we had the place to ourselves – so he could run around and enjoy everything quickly, but then wanted to move on to the next candy coated room experience.

I was LIVING for all the fun photo ops.

Seriously, this was so much better having the place to ourselves for pictures alone! So yes, I’d highly recommend checking out a non-busy time to visit for fun pics.

Aside from all the fun exhibits for the kids – a play house, slides, bubbles, jungle gym {inside a jungle} and so much more – there was lots for the adults to appreciate and enjoy as well.

Art installations everywhere – and all COMPLETELY made out of candy. I didn’t take as many pictures of this sort of stuff as I would have liked {I blame chasing around Graham and his sugar high} but it was very impressive.

And there were so many Philadelphia specific art projects – Fresh Prince, the LOVE statue, Rocky and more. I assume with each location {also in Houston and Phoenix and NYC} the project is catered a bit to the locale, which we totally love here in Philly.

Back to – Treasure trunks of candy around every corner – and we found them all.

And a not so little see saw that even the mamas can enjoy ! Sugar highs all around.

My favorite part of it all?!

Hands down the marshmallow pit. It’s filled with 300,000 mallows!

Yes, its totally for kids, but adults can 100% appreciate its awesomeness as well. I posted a slow-mo video on the ‘gram – because a slow motion marshmallow pit experience is the only kind to have.

I was living my best life.

I’d love to know your thoughts on Candytopia – Is it something you would be into? Something your kiddos would enjoy?!

Let me know what you think – it’s in town now through January 5th – so if you make your way down to this sweet part of town, I’d love to hear about your sweet adventure!

    Best guess at a normal pace how long were you there?

      Hi Nikki, We were there before it was officially opened, so we didn’t have to deal with any crowds – but I bet you could easily spent 1-2 hours!
