Elitch Gardens Theme & Water Park recently announced that the park will partner with Meow Wolf to create an innovative new attraction that will open in 2019: ‘Meow Wolf’s Kaleidoscape.’
This attraction will take guests on a fully-immersive and interactive experience, as they experience otherworldly motion, deep sound, wild color and take part in challenges that just might save the day. This will be the first artist-driven dark ride in a theme park ever.
“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,” said Layne Pitcher, marketing director for Elitch Gardens.
Guests will be able to experience Kaleidoscape in 2019 before the new Meow Wolf exhibit makes its debut in Denver in 2020. Meow Wolf is composed of 200+ artists across all mediums including sculpture, architecture, painting, photography, video, virtual and augmented reality, narrative writing and more.
“Meow Wolf artists love amusement park rides,” said Vince Kadlubek, CEO. “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.”
The ride will replace the Ghost Blasters shooting ride. Here’s a look at it:
