MEOW WOLF News:
DENVER, Colo. ― Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park announced today that the park will be partnering with new neighbor Meow Wolf to bring an innovative, alluring and sensational new ride to Denver in 2019.
Meow Wolf’s Kaleidoscape will be a never-before-experienced attraction that takes guests on a densely immersive and fully interactive adventure. Riders who journey on Kaleidoscape will be transported to other-worldly motion, deep sound, wild color and interactive challenges that—if well-played—may just save the day.
This intriguing attraction will be the first artist-driven dark ride the world has ever seen. A teaser video appears here.
“All of us at Elitch Gardens are thrilled to be partnering with Meow Wolf to create this unique, mysterious and artistic new ride. 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,” Elitch Gardens Marketing Director Layne Pitcher said.
Guests will experience Kaleidoscape in 2019 at Elitch Gardens before the new Meow Wolf exhibit debuts in Denver in 2020. Meow Wolf is a truly unique group comprised of 200 + artists across all disciplines including architecture, sculpture, painting, photography, video, virtual and augmented reality, music engineering, narrative writing, performance and more. The art is bold, daring and unabashedly weird in order to challenge everyday norms through immersive experiences that transport audiences of all ages into fantastic realms of story and exploration.
“Meow Wolf artists love amusement park rides,” CEO Vince Kadlubek said. “They are works of art with architecture, pacing, sensation, color, theme and more. To create a dark ride has been a true dream of ours and we’re deeply honored to work with Elitch Gardens to create the first ride in the world that is also a multimedia piece of contemporary art. Over a million visitors have experienced House of Eternal Return in Santa Fe and we aim to pack as much mind-blowing visuals as possible into Meow Wolf’s Kaleidoscape—an adventure that will be a prequel experience to our blockbuster Denver exhibit in 2020.”
Elitch Gardens Season Pass holders will be among the first to ride Kaleidoscape next April. Stay tuned for the biggest sale of the year beginning this Monday, Aug. 27.
