The World’s Largest Crayola Crayon – Bluetiful – Arrives in Orlando The 1,352-pound crayon makes its permanent home at Crayola Experience
ORLANDO – The world’s largest Crayola crayon, weighing in at 1,352 pounds and nearly 16 feet long, assumed permanent residence this morning at Crayola Experience Orlando. The family destination will celebrate the arrival with themed attractions, giveaways and a character meet-n-greet with Bluetiful herself.
Starting tomorrow and through Christmas Eve, the first 100 kids to visit the attraction will receive a free Bluetiful crayon, and all guests visiting on these days can:
- Name and wrap their own Bluetiful crayon at Wrap It Up!
- Color an exclusive Bluetiful coloring sheet at Colossal Caddy
- Meet-n-greet Bluetiful an 8-foot crayon character
All activities are included with general admission. Distribution of Bluetiful crayons will begin when the attraction opens at 10 a.m. All other activities will occur throughout normal operational hours.
The latest shade to join the Crayola family was announced at the Colorful World of Pigments event hosted at Oregon State University on May 5, 2017. The event was a celebration of YInMn blue and its impact on art, culture and industry. The new crayon shade was inspired by the YInMn pigment discovered in the laboratory of Oregon State Chemistry Professor Mas Subramanian.
Crayola received over 90,000 unique name submissions for the new blue crayon color and almost 400,000 consumers voted last summer to choose the final name for the new color. ‘Bluetiful’ was voted the winner and Crayola created the larger-than-life crayon to celebrate. The 1,352-pound, 15.6-foot crayon, was unveiled at the naming announcement in NYC in September.
Crayola Experience tickets are $19.99 online and $22.99 at the door. Kids under 3 are free. For tickets, hours and info, visit CrayolaExperience.com.
