"Acid Trip...Right Meow Wolf👇 - Santa Fe's Funhouse"
First, you're standing under a GIANT ROBOT outside of what Jignesh (the Uber dude) called
"the old bowling alley, man," which is just a plain old white building on the outside...
But on the inside... You're looking at Funky-bright walls and walking on neon carpets!
Next thing you know, you've got on 3D glasses walking down a psychedelic hallway,
You go through a door,
Welcome to frickin' Wonderland, Alice!
There's no easy way to describe it. It's a 2-story, fully-furnished house with trap doors & secret passages that lead out into a world of insane visual art and interactive music installations.
The whole thing's a visual mind f*ck that feels like a super rad
Tim Burton, Alice in Wonderland, and Pee-wee's Playhouse lucid dream.
Santa Fe, NM is home to this trippy art complex known as
which is named after the artist collective that put it together.
These wild ones are responsible for other gnarly STUFF LIKE THIS and also THIS IN SAN ANTONIO. They directed THIS UNUSUAL MUSIC VIDEO and the rap trio "Migos" filmed parts OF A MUSIC VIDEO at the very same
Meow Wolf Art Complex.
The 2-story house I mentioned earlier...that's the
"House of Eternal Return,"
and it's just one of many exhibits housed inside this interactive play place.

There's a giant laser harp and dinosaur bones you can actually play music with, a tree house to veg out in, and a coin-operated retro arcade! There's lights and a stage and wild performances on the regular.
Several artists had a hand in creating this cornucopia of euphoria, and they must have had access to some damn good kush because HOLY BALLS! This place looks cray!
The whole complex was shut down early February 2018 for just 2 weeks as it underwent some major renovations, including adding extra rooms and another portal! But it's all open again and ready for action.
The guy who helped 💲financially💲 back the project is George R.R. Martin, author of
"GAME OF THRONES,"
who practiced a hands-off, sit back-&-trust-the-artists approach.
Now, "Why tf Santa Fe," you ask?
Turns out Santa Fe keeps it weird too!

He'll do a Rubix cube in front of you, then turn around and "raise the roof" to celebrate.🤦 He's got a rad-ass toy room, though, & his Ninja Turtle loot could make Splinter do backflips🐀. He runs the weekly art blog UpChuxWhen I asked him to describe his style he said: "I like shit that looks good and feels right." First of all☝️: That's what she said. Secondly✌️: Sounds like appealing content to me.
