The world of Willy Wonka meets pop culture and nostalgia in the Candytopia exhibit which has taken Atlanta by storm since opening Feb. 8. Upon entering, visitors are transported into a custom-made candy paradise. Southern hospitality will marinate topia-goers with enthusiastic zeal as they explore this sweet wonderland.

The massive displays within the entrance of the first room encompass the space and present the viewer with a one-of-a-kind treat. With swings, over-the-top interactives, and unique aesthetics, the photo opportunities are “NDLYSS” (excuse the pun).

The savvy team of engineers put the experience as a top priority. From the oversized lollipops, neon lighting, and rooms adorned with chandeliers, Sorkin’s touch of glam is breathtaking and simply unforgettable.

Coming of the hills of the infamous Infinity Mirrors exhibit, Sorkin has perfect timing for introducing ATLiens to Candytopia. In a city thriving off of culture and on its way to being adoptive of cool and quirky experiences like this one, Candytopia will bring attendees back to their adolescent roots. So, come with an open mind, willingness to be silly, and you’ll never want to leave the world of candy.
