Visitor Tips and News About PEZ Visitor Center
Great detour off of 95! You get a neat PEZ lanyard and $2 coupon with your $5 fee. I learned more than I thought I needed to know about the incredible history of PEZ.[AKR, 09/25/2013]
Pez! Super colorful and fun. I think kids would really enjoy visiting this attraction. You can learn the history of Pez (it started as a gimmick to avoid smoking... that's why the dispensers flip like lighters!) and see dispensers of all kinds from the very old to ones yet to be released. There are also old vending machines, costumes, advertisements, and more. Of course, there is a gift shop, and lots of other fun things to see.[natty, 08/02/2013]
Fun place to stop and see the history of PEZ. Doesn't take long; fun for the whole family.[Jax, 09/03/2012]
Went to the PEZ Visitor Center, newly opened in Orange, CT. It has the NEW world's largest PEZ dispenser. I think the original one was in California (RA: Burlingame, CA) until this opened up.
This place was fantastic. The 12 ft PEZ Dispenser, a window into the actual factory, tons and tons of displays behind glass, some interactive multimedia areas, a timeline of PEZ history, a PEZ themed motorcycle built for them by Orange County Choppers, and I swear, every PEZ flavor or Dispenser ever seen.
Plus a gift shop area, of course.[Michael Bartkowiak, 01/14/2012]
