It’s finally happening. Immersive art installations and theme parks are finally colliding. Are you familiar with Meow Wolf? If not, you should be. It’s a massive immersive art installation in New Mexico that’s absolutely mind-blowing. We covered it at TPU just after opening and since then, the themed entertainment has taken notice. Now they are teaming up with Elitch Gardens in Colorado and creating a new dark ride called Kaleidoscape, which opens in 2019!
According to a press release from Elitch Gardens, Meow Wolf’s Kaleidoscape is an interactive experience with “otherworldly motion, deep sound, wild color and interactive challenges.”
“All of us at Elitch Gardens are thrilled to be partnering with Meow Wolf to create this unique, mysterious and artistic new ride,” said Elitch Gardens’ Marketing Director Layne Pitcher. “The park is a long-standing Denver staple known for offering one-of-a-kind family fun and this new ride will continue that tradition in its most original way ever.”
Why am I personally thrilled about this new ride? Fans of the old Hard Rock Park know that the standout attraction was Nights in White Satin: The Trip. A lucid dream-like dark ride that took guests through a trippy visual representation of The Moody Blues classic song. It was one of my favorite dark rides of all time. This looks to be a similar concept without a singular well-known track as the focus. I definitely look forward to riding Meow Wolf’s Kaleidoscape when it opens April 2019!
