AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently visited the site of the all-new AREA15 retail and entertainment district in Las Vegas. It includes retail tenants, an ice-cream parlor, a gift shop and a food court. While AREA15 was scheduled to open in February 2020, it was delayed due to the COVID-19 crisis. There will be an arcade and an escape room, while traditional retail tenants are to incorporate interactive or V.R. elements in their “experience”. A large section of AREA15 will be operated by experiential art collective Meow Wolf for a project which is as of yet being kept secret as to its nature. Shogyo Mujo is a 12-foot-tall, 360-degree projection mapped skull.
AREA15 is located at 3215 S. Rancho Dr. in Las Vegas, NV. It opens to the public on September 17, 2020. Free advance tickets are available online at https://area15.com/
