Meow Wolf is an art and entertainment group based out of Santa Fe, New Mexico that primarily focuses on large scale immersive installation art experiences based around exploring a surreal multiverse. Established as an art collective in 2008 and creating various shows throughout Santa Fe, they would open a permanent installation in 2014 in a former bowling alley with the help of George R. R. Martin and begin expanding from there.

Currently, there are four Meow Wolf locations and a ride at Elitch Gardens.

View their website here.


Meow Wolf Locations:

  • House of Eternal Return in Santa Fe
  • Omega Mart in Las Vegas
  • Convergence Station in Denver
    • Kaleidoscape at Elitch Gardens
  • The Real Unreal in Grapevine (suburb of Dallas, Texas)

Includes examples of:

  • Alternate Tooniverse: The Cartoon Kitchen in House of Eternal Return.
  • Amazing Technicolor World: Common to all locations.
  • Cosmic Egg: Used in Kaleidoscape to open a path to a new universe.
  • Eldritch Location: The House of Eternal Return, which has fractured into multiple dimensions and was frozen in time before it could spread out infinitely.
  • Government Conspiracy: The Charter
  • Mascot: The collective has two: the Meow Wolf, a yin-yang creature that's half black cat with a missing eye and half white three-eyed wolf, and Shaggy, a fuzzy horned monster. The giant flower-smelling robot Becoming Human, originally a Burning Man statue repurposed for their Santa Fe location, appears on Meow Wolf's social media banners.
  • Production Throwback: In Convergence Station, one of the rules for the Pizza Pals Playzone states that "No Doggie-Woggiez, No Poochie-Woochiez" are allowed, calling back to Playzone creators Everything Is Terrible!'s film DoggieWoggiez! PoochieWoochiez!.
  • Suck E. Cheese's:
    • Invoked by the Wiggy's Plasma Plex Video Arcade at House of Eternal Return, which is run by a punk rat named Plotso and his street gang.
    • Convergence Station has the Pizza Pals Playzone, a Denver pizza joint that closed after "The Great Gooping of 2002" as the fictitious original tenant of the land the station was built on.
  • Xylophones for Walking Bones: The musical mastodon skeleton in House of Eternal Return.
