Do you remember Candytopia, the imaginative confectionery wonderland where you can explore your sweet tooth like never before? Well, this time, Candytopia teamed up with Planet Hollywood to bring Movietopia, a multidimensional cinematic experience for movie lovers of all ages! I was invited to Movietopia Houston’s VIP preview event - here’s my take on Houston's Movietopia experience & what you can expect!
As soon as we talked in, my initial reaction was like, WOW! I felt like I was ready to walk on a red carpet and take crazy amount of selfies with the every background. The lights were so bright though, I felt my body heating up. You might get hot throughout this experience if you wear a sweater. Wonder if this is how celebrities feel when they go to Met Gala or fashion week?
All of the staffs are friendly, ready to take many photos, and explained what each stations are like. I really liked this area (photo below) with all types of movie posters. Throughout Movietopia, they have classic American movies like Flintstones, Terminator, Titanic, Pulp Fiction, Honey I shrunk The Kids, and so many more! Which movie scene do you want to take photos first?
I felt like the lighting in some of the areas wasn't as great, it was either too bright or dark, where the photos came out not the best. Be sure to take advantage of the QR code and take photos from the designated areas since it sends you all the photos to your email. It was a great decision to check out Movietopia early since when I arrived, there were not a lot of people - which helped me to take photos without waiting in line. Just try to avoid crowded certain times like after work or the weekends!
I've never seen a bear with human legs... have you?
I think the most memorable one was diving in this shrimp pit from Forrest Gump. How cute are these shrimps? I almost wanted to take one. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to play inside this ocean of shrimp without feeling like I can hardly walk.
Overall, you will spend about an hour to 90 minutes in Movietopia Houston. This fun entertainment is located in Marq'E where Candytopia was at. It's right next to the newly opened restaurant, Warehouse 72. The tickets are $28 for adults, $20 for kids 4-12 and free for kids under 3. The hours are 10 am - 8:30 pm from Monday through Saturday, and 11am - 8:30pm on Sunday. Definitely a fun way to spend your day in Houston if you have some time to spare!
