Yelper Brigitte K. added, “A lot of fun and super interactive. Everything was colorful, candy for snacking in every room, great photo opportunities and very creative. You can tell the creator put a lot of work and care into her craft. It's fun for everyone of all ages.”

Candytopia has yet to post its hours online.
