“As guests move, the walls, floors, and tables react to their actions in a variety of ways, enhanced by 360-degree projection mapping that fully immerses guests in interactive games and dining experiences,” according to a press release.

Electric Playhouse opened its first and only current location in Albuquerque — home to its creator, Brandon Garrett — in 2021. Coincidentally, AREA15’s Meow Wolf, Vegas’ current leader in mind-gamery, was also born in New Mexico.

The brand’s second location will open to “children of all ages” on June 22 in 10,000 square feet on the Forum Shops’ third floor. That’s less than half the size of the company’s Albuquerque footprint.

The attraction “promises to lure visitors off the couch and into a vibrant world where their bodies become the controllers,” according to the release.

Later this year, the attraction will debut upscale dining and a full-scale bar. And, because the venue features an outdoor patio overlooking the Strip, it will also offer viewing packages for the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix on November 23.

Tickets, $30 per adult, are available at electricplayhouse.com.
