What is Sugar Rush?
Sugar Rush is an immersive experience brought to you by the same makers of Hauntoween and WonderLAnd. However, unlike these previous events, this is an open-air, walk through event.
As you begin your walk into Sugar Rush, you will feel as though you have entered Candy Land. There is no better way to describe it! The visual displays are stunning and just magical.
There will also be a TON of photo ops. Seriously…have your phone fully charged and storage space freed up.
Be sure to check us out on Instagram @asocalwayoflife for more fun pictures!
You will walk through 40,000 square feet of candy-lover’s bliss. You’ll find:
- Photo ops
- Art displays full of color
- Live performances
- Custom parade floats
Did I mention that candy is included with paid admission?
What are the Covid Protocols?
My family attended on a VIP night with extremely limited capacity. I do not believe I experienced the conditions that most will find when they head out to Sugar Rush. However, there are protocols in place in compliance with the county regulations.
Sugar Rush states that it will be following Covid safety protocols that include:
- Temperature checks for all upon arrival.
- All must wear a mask.
- Limited capacity inside the experience.
- Routine cleaning of communal surfaces.
- Social distancing to be required between all groups.
Tips to make the most of your visit
I have a few suggestions to make your visit the best and most comfortable that it can be!
Go at night if you can
We headed to Sugar Rush in the daytime. Everything was absolutely beautiful to look at, but I suspect that all of the light tunnels and light props lit up at night would just add an extra wow factor to it all!
Wear bright colors
There will be a TON of photo ops. All of the props and backgrounds are fun and bright (like candy!). Make your photos extra nice by wearing some bright colors. This will make sure you really blend into the pictures nicely. Extra points if you can get the entire group to coordinate a little bit 😉
If you can, dress in a cute outfit. Think Katy Perry in the California Gurls video. No joke, it feels like you’re stepping into the video.
Take a picnic lunch or dinner with you
There is a nice Swing and Park picnic area at the end of the experience. All are welcome picnic or play on the swings.
Wear shoes you can walk in
Maybe you can walk in 3 inch heels over a 40,000 square foot space. Or, you might be one of those people that chooses their footwear depending on the length of time required to walk (ahem…that’s me!). Just be aware that this will require a bit of walking and standing while enjoying the art.
Check the weather the day of!
For some odd reason, the weather jumped from the 60’s to the 80’s in the span of a week. It was super warm when we went and I’m thankful that I check before we went in pants and long sleeves.
If you have little ones with you…
Have a talk in the car before you enter
There’s no getting around it. EVERYBODY will want to touch the art installations. Trust me, they have this sort of mosquito to the bug zapper effect. You see the stuff, you naturally want to touch it. As a kid, I’d definitely want to pick up one of the huge lollipops!
Make your life a little easier by reminding your little ones that they can take pictures with the art, just not touch it or climb on it.
Take water and or snacks!
My little ones are not so little anymore, yet the heat was making them wilt. They were begging for water that I did not have on hand. Make your life a little easier and take water with you!
