In response to requests from those who'd like to experience a child-free Convergence Station, Meow Wolf began hosting 21+ nights, dubbed the Adulti-Verse, at the start of the year. On these evenings, adult patrons are able to trip through the multiple universes in the massive installation, drink in hand, and experience Convergence Station without a kid in sight.
The second Adulti-Verse of 2023 happens Wednesday, February 1. Tickets are $49.
Here are five places you won't want to miss during the Adulti-Verse (and where you won't run into kids, either):
That "alien bubble" can be found in the universe Numina, known for its ethereal yet swampy atmosphere teeming with secret nooks. On the second floor of the Cosmohedron is the Frog Egg Garden designed by Emmanuelle John; inside, you have a bird's-eye view of the mystical installation. But that's not all: If enough people sit on the cushioned depressions around the circular room and touch the windows, the colorful ceiling comes alive.
Upon entering the icy world of Eemia with its colorful Kaleidegothic Cathedral, you can't miss the two robots that offer thrones designed by the brain behind Eemia, Matt King, a co-founder of Meow Wolf who passed away in July. From these seats, you can play with various controls and buttons and control the lasers that reflect in the celestial ceiling — and you might even end up opening a wormhole. Since no kids will be around, this will be a good time to fully check out the cathedral; depending on your mindset, it might make you think of a psychedelic, mini-Hagia Sofia built by aliens.
Like most everything in Meow Wolf Denver, this car parked on C Street is meant for interaction. It's also a kid favorite, so if hordes of children bumped you out of a chance to rev the engine, the Adulti-Verse is your chance. Play with all the levers and buttons and widgets, and see what you can activate from inside the vehicle designed by Christopher Miller.
While you're on C Street, visit Magic Hollow, a haunted psychic shop designed by Moss Lair. If you see Sid the Psychic wandering about with a stethoscope, be sure to ask for your fortune: He'll tell you where you can go in Convergence Station to have your troubles disappear, even if for just a short while.
This secret room, made by local artist and DJ Cache Flow, is located in the world of Ossuary. Flowing black and white lines are projected throughout the room and interact with your movements, making this a prime spot to snap an interesting photo. Fair warning: Meow Wolf cautions that this may be a difficult space for those who are especially sensory-sensitive or epileptic. And it's also going to be tough if you've indulged in too many adult beverages during the Adulti-Verse.
