Candytopia, the candy-coated experience that brings a dreamworld candy factory to life, officially opened in mid-August. While the experience was due to shutter soon, the popularity of the event has allowed organizers to extend its stay until January 6, 2019.
For anyone who’s ever dreamed of scoring a Golden Ticket or nibbling their way through Candyland, Candytopia transports guests to an imaginative confectionary wonderland with a one-of-a-kind full sensory experience.
Candytopia features more than a dozen unique rooms and larger-than-life interactive art installations inspired by pure, sugary bliss. Guests are treated to candy samples throughout the entire experience including sours and gummies, chocolate treats, nostalgic favorites and many other sweet surprises.
Candytopia’s first location in Santa Monica drew sold-out crowds during its limited run and amassed a huge following among locals of all ages and A-list celebrities alike including Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Josh Duhamel, Christina Aguilera, James Corden, Wiz Khalifa, Hilary Duff, Alessandra Ambrosio and more.
The New York City location features the most popular attractions from its Santa Monica location in addition to new, New York-inspired elements that will thrill locals and travelers alike including a candy portrait of Cardi B, a life-size candy cab, a candy Statue of Liberty and much more.
Candytopia is located at Penn Plaza at 145 W 32nd Street. Tickets are available at
