(ATLANTA, Ga.) Atlanta is getting sweeter just in time for the summer.

The popular photo experience Candytopia is returning to the city this summer. The experience made its debut in the Buckhead area in 2019 and this is the first time it's chosen to revisit a city.

When the museum first came to the city, it sold out almost immediately and extended its stay twice to accommodate close to 250,000 guests within 6 months.

For a limited time, residents and visitors can flick up Instagram-worthy pictures with fun props and bright colors. Enjoy views of flying unicorn pigs, colossal candy creations and marshmallow tsunamis in an interactive experience.

“We’re thrilled to be returning to the city of Atlanta where we were so warmly welcomed in 2019. We’ve created an updated experience that our guests will find familiar, but with plenty of new surprises to discover,” John Goodman, the CEO of Youtopia Entertainment, said in a statement.

The exhibit is family-friendly and great for a day out with friends, family or date night. According to a press release, the experience is described as “an imaginative fantasyland with a one-of-a-kind immersive experience that beckons you to soak in the wonder.”

The museum features over 12 “rooms” that showcase over-the-top art installations and make for great interactive photos and videos.

“As they travel through each area, guests are treated to a variety of packaged candy samples, including some nostalgic favorites, and many sweet surprises,” the press release said.

Doors to the experience officially open on June 11 at 3330 Piedmont Road NE, next door to Disco Kroger in central Buckhead.

Tickets are officially on sale and must be purchased in advance.
