Life Size Candy Land

May 16, 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm


It’s Back! The very popular Life Size Candy Land event is back and better than ever. During the hiatus the game was spruced up, touched up and is now ready to come to life with you as the gingerbread boy or girl.

You don’t want to miss out on the fun with Mr. Mint, Jolly, Lolly, Gloppy and the rest of the Candy Land characters. Players will go through the game in groups of four but before they start their sweet adventure, players can participate in different Candy Land themed activities like making your own lollipops and decorating cupcakes with frosting and sprinkles! Four players are allowed for each time slot; please arrive a half hour before your scheduled game time below to participate in the sweet activities! No walk-in registrations will be accepted.
