Candytopia, the candy-coated interactive art installation, is now in Scottsdale at Scottsdale Quarter (15059 N. Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85254).
It features more than one dozen rooms with larger-than-life interactive art installations and full sensory experiences. The marshmallowy mini-theme park launched in 2018 in Santa Monica and has traveled coast to coast, attracting long lines and sold-out crowds. Candytopia has quickly expanded nationwide with past runs in San Francisco, New York City, Minneapolis-St. Paul at Mall of America and Atlanta. It’s currently open in Houston and will be debuting in Philadelphia.
This specific location will include a marshmallow pit filled with over 250,000 foam marshmallows; an underwater-themed wonderland with fantastical candy covered sea creatures; a rainbow-filled room with flying unicorn pigs and confetti explosions galore, along with many more sweet surprises.
It has amassed a huge following among guests of all ages and A-list celebrities alike including Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Biel, Bruce Willis, Adam Sandler, Kevin Durant, Josh Duhamel, Christina Aguilera, James Corden, Wiz Khalifa, Usher, T.I., Hilary Duff, Alessandra Ambrosio and more. Guests are treated to candy samples throughout the entire experience including sours and gummies, chocolate treats, nostalgic favorites, and many sweet surprises.
Candytopia was created by global candy artist Jackie Sorkin (star of TLC’s “Candy Queen”), events and production design expert Zac Hartog, and retail veteran John Goodman.
