Won-Door part of the Crayola Experience
By Sharon Haddock
They can color inside and outside the lines, play, explore, create and learn with 25 different hands-on attractions in 70,000 square feet of space.
"Won-Door is part of this unique adventure at the new Crayola Experience Orlando in The Florida Mall providing life safety, and no one even knows we are there," according to Eric Eiffert, Won-Door Florida District Manager.
Designed for Crayola by Callison architectural firm in Los Angeles, Calif., the door serves as fire separation between the covered mall building and the anchor building which formerly was a Nordstrom's store. Normally in the open position, hidden in its pocket, it is also able to be closed in a non-fire condition as an access control barrier, if needed by the store staff.
"At Crayola Experience we immerse our families in color and creativity," said Senior Vice President and General Manager of Crayola Attractions and Retail Victoria Lozano. "Our mission is to raise creatively alive kids, and this attraction helps to do just that."
In a single day, a child can star in his or her own coloring page, then watch his creations come to life on huge projected surfaces. Kids can watch a live theater show featuring the animated crayon characters, Scarlet and Turk, make melted wax drip art and doodle in the dark. Families can eat at Café Crayola, buy unique souvenirs and products at the Crayola Store and even name and wrap their very own authentic Crayola crayon.
Located at 8001 S. Orange Blossom Trail, Crayola Experience is open year-round for family and group outings, birthday parties and school field trips.
