After drawing sold out crowds, the brand has announced a one-time, six-week extension. The confectionery wonderland will now remain open until July 28. New tickets will be released May 2 at 12 p.m. EST and are expected to sell out quickly.

Since opening at Lenox Marketplace in February, thousands of locals have visited, including Usher, T.I., Lil Yachty, Ludacris and Kandi Burruss.

Candytopia, which has had exhibitions in New York and San Francisco, features more than a dozen rooms of sweetness. You can expect to see a marshmallow pit made with foam and augmented reality technology.

You’ll find some fun elements unique to Georgia, too. For instance, there’s a huge peach, a wall that pays tribute to Ray Charles, an illustration of a few cast members from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and some other sweet treats in the gift shop.
