KIRTLAND, Ohio--  It's your favorite game taken to an entirely new level and it's a giant one!

The Penitentiary Glen Nature Center in Kirtland has set up a life-sized version of the popular game.

They describe it as, "Play just like Candy Land, but with a natural twist." You draw a card, move from space to space and explore nature through the year.

"So if you were to come here, you have all the different seasons, and you'd have all the different foods you would find in those seasons. So you play it just like Candy Land, but you would have a maple syrup station; you'd have a honey station, berries, picnic, campfire, and you'd have a nut station," said Caitlin Ambrose with Lake Metroparks.

Candy Land is open now through January 3 from noon-5 p.m. It is closed on holidays. Admission is free. CLICK HERE for more information.
