We’re Not the Only Cool Sh*t at AREA15
While there’s plenty to be excited about at Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart, we’re not the only cool thing AREA15 has to offer.

You likely drop in here every few weeks to see what’s new with our installations or our team... Or to ask about Denver. Y’all love to ask about Denver. Don’t worry, we’re working on it!

Ultimately, you come here to sate your curiosity about Meow Wolf, but we’ve noticed there’s something else you’re curious about: AREA15.

Everyone’s been blowing up our DMs asking, “What the hell is AREA15?”

You’re not the first person to ask and surely won’t be the last, but let’s settle this once and for all.

Government building? You can’t see us, but we’re laughing out loud.

Empty warehouse? Getting warmer, but still ice cold.

Convention center? At 200,000 square feet, it certainly could be.

No, it’s nothing like that, and you’re probably having trouble coming up with an answer because a space like this is the first of its kind.

AREA15 is the world’s first purpose-built experiential entertainment district.

So basically...cool sh*t lives here.

Now when we say cool sh*t, we obviously mean us, but outside of the walls of Omega Mart are 12 other immersive experiences that create a different kind of playground for all ages.

Once you check out with us, here are a few things we highly recommend.

Wink World

Wink World is where psychedelic arthouse meets carnival funhouse, created by Chris Wink.


You may have seen this one on our IG, but nothing compares to seeing it firsthand.

Wink World, one of AREA15’s newest spots to open, is a visually and sonically dynamic exhibit created by Chris Wink. Wink is best known as one of the three Co-Founders and the CCO of Blue Man Group. If you’re not a Vegas local, that may mean nothing to you, but trust us when we say he’s quite the genius.

At “Wink World: Portals Into the Infinite,” guests journey through six infinity mirror rooms; each one featuring black light and other dazzling stage effects designed to evoke “life force” and inspire wonder. Within the space, Wink World also features 15 works from rising art-star and psychedelic visionary, Alex Aliume.

If you love what you see at Meow Wolf, your next stop HAS to be Wink World.

Oddwood

Oddwood is an open-space cocktail bar in AREA15’s main corridor.


At this point, you’ve been at AREA15 for a couple of hours and you’re probably dying for a drink. If that’s the case, meet us at Oddwood.

Located in the center of AREA15, you can’t miss Oddwood’s 25-foot-tall digital maple tree. It’s a mesmerizing display of art revering nature, with more than 50,000 individually-programmed LED lights on 5,000 leaves.

It’s the perfect spot for a quick bite and beverage before you get back to business.


Oz Experience

Everything you know about VR? Yeah, you can forget about that.

Oz Experience by Backlight is the future of virtual reality. With various long and short-format experiences to choose from, this one is perfect for families with children of any age. Whether it’s saving the universe or chasing down a bird for a burger (yes, you’re reading that right), Oz is about to change your life.


Emack & Bolio’s

Emack & Bolio’s is an award-winning, Boston-based company specializing in ice cream, vegan ice cream, chocolates, and smoothies.


It isn’t just ice cream. It's award-winning ice cream. Emack & Bolio offers unique and decadent flavors like “campfire s’mores” or vegan ice cream options, chocolates, and smoothies. They’re also the inventors of the flavored cone, which means you can savor dessert until the very last bite.

We could go on and on, but typing with one hand and enjoying this cone with the other just isn’t working, so we’ll wrap it up. There’s still so much we haven’t shown you inside of AREA15, so our recommendation is to spend a few hours with our “helpful” Omega Mart grocery clerks, then spend some time exploring AREA15.
