The time has finally come. The world's first Dr. Seuss exhibit is officially premiering in Toronto on Friday, October 26, and it's going to bring all your childhood dreams to life. The immersive installation makes Dr. Suess's whimsical worlds a reality, and you can wander through massive rooms decked out in playful Dr. Suess decor. This massive exhibit boasts several spaces that reflect different iconic storybooks, as well as a giant balloon maze that you won't mind getting lost in. The Dr. Seuss Experience is ready to open its doors, and here's what it looks like on the inside.
Hold onto your hats, because this experience will take you on the most magical adventure of your life. Set in a huge warehouse, the 15,000 square foot exhibit boasts a multitude of unique rooms for kids of all ages to explore, each one based on a different story. Travel through a field of clovers in search of the Whos, lose yourself in a ginormous balloon maze, meet the Cat-In-The-Hat, and surround yourself with a sea of Sneetches.
Upon entering the exhibit, you'll be welcomed by some friendly faces you might recognize from your favourite Dr. Seuss storybooks. There's a large gift shop open to pick up some adorable merchandise as well.
Step into this fantastical wonderland and be totally immersed in Dr. Seuss' imagination. The expansive maze is the first thing to greet you. Hundreds of colourful balloons float in the centre of the exhibit, inviting you to explore inside its vibrant walls.
There are so many bright rooms calling your name, it's hard to decide where to adventure through first. A small space made entirely of mirrors allows you to be entirely surrounded by blinking yellow Sneetches, and it certainly gets the prize for the most mind-bending area.
Kids of all ages (yes, that means adults too) are invited to ride a gleaming silver carousel from If I Ran The Circus. Afterwards, plunge into a fluffy field of clovers in search of the Whos who are calling for you. Once you've found the blossom, the sound will switch to another one so you can experience the search again.
A vibrant living room is full of all sorts of sneaky, adorable creatures from There's A Wocket In My Pocket. Take a close look to discover little fluffy creatures causing mischief everywhere.
Wander through an enchanting forest of Truffula trees and play on the swings hanging from their branches. You'll have to visit the Once-ler before heading into this whimsical room and be warned, he may decide to send you to a much darker place if he thinks you're greedy.
The most magical room of all is the Grinch's Christmas room, which has opened in honour of the upcoming holiday season. The twinkling lights and twirling presents will make your heart grow three sizes.
Explore these rooms and more at this nostalgic exhibit. The space will be open from October 26, 2019, to January 5, 2020, and tickets are already selling out fast. You can purchase some online or at Square One Mall. Spend a dreamy afternoon getting lost in your favourite childhood stories.
