As honored guests, you are given a guided tour through various departments of Mr. Kringle's toy laboratory. You will explore each area and engage in hands-on activities. Afterwards, enjoy a private tête-à-tête and photo opportunity with Mr. Kringle® to capture the memories of your annual visit.
Tour Length: Approximately 1 Hour
Start your visit at the NEW Kringle’s Coature Cache™! You will encounter new characters and fun inside, be officially sworn in as members of Mr. Kringle's elite team of Inventologists, receive your Inventologists’ Lab Coats, check your personal belongings, and head to the Inventionasium®!
Begin your Inventionasium® tour with Charolette Hollyhop™, receptionist extraordinaire and personal assistant to Mr. Kringle®. Charolette will measure the your group’s Imaginativity and prepare you for your tour.
Your first stop will be the Brainstorming Cave™, where your group will learn about Observation, Brainstorm spectaculous multi-use toy ideas, and build prototypes with our new Toobers & Zots.
In the NEW Imaginoise Workshop™, Inventors will be guided to create their very own Imaginoise - a sound you can make to help inspire you when you need new ideas or have Inventor’s block! Make your own, and put them all together to hear your group’s Imaginoise Symphony!
This year’s I.D.I.D.I.T. Testing Facility™ is home to another toy creation station, where you will create and name a Creature with fantabulous Zolo parts, while learning about the inventing principles of Design and Documentation.
Our NEW Build-A-Bubble Department™ will wow you as you build bolder bubbles than ever before! Have you ever held a bubble, or seen one vanish in a puff of smoke? Come and see some of Mr. Kringle’s most recent innovations!
The Grow Snow Laboratory™ is now experimenting with COLOR! Since we’ve now figured out how to get a White Krismas™ to warmer climates, now we’re endeavoring to brighten things up a bit by exploring Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary colors.
Wrap up your visit to the Inventionasium® with your Private Visit with Mr. Kringle®, where your Krismas™ joy and wishes will be shared, and our photographers will capture your Merriest Moments on camera.
