A mixture of film, retail, live action and whimsy, the M&M’s Academy at the Showcase Mall in Las Vegas offers guests an opportunity to experience the creation of the world-famous M&M’s candies.
This branded attraction features a 3D film by Will Vinton Studios, creator of the popular M&M’s candy television commercials, and a walk-through experience that delights kids young and old.
CD+M provided lighting design and controls specifications for the Academy and the fourth-floor retail and café area under contract to Cunningham Group Architects and attraction designer Landmark Entertainment.
The project was awarded a 1999 Award for Excellence from the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) and was featured on the cover of Lighting Dimensions International.
