I went to Area 15 for the sole purpose of going to Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart, which was AMAZING. The rest of Area 15 was kind of disappointing.

The open space inside was cool to hang out in. There are about 4 bars, including the one inside Omega Mart, a coffee bar, an ice cream booth (the BEST), and one - ONE - restaurant, Beast, which was just ok, and also a bit disorganized.

The only other attraction I bothered going to was Museum Fiasco - and it turned out to be a total ripoff. It was a big, dark, suffocatingly foggy room, with a series of LED lights on columns that were programmed to some bizarro mash-up of a dance club and a locomotive train wreck. Impressive programming, but boring, underwhelming experience for a high price. You can’t even sit down to enjoy the experience. Maybe entertaining if you just dropped acid.

So, in summary, go to Meow Wolf, and skip everything else except the ice cream and coffee.

You have tickets to one of the attractions on the inside. We did two Meow Wolf & Van Gough experience, plus the virtual.

Meow Wolf Omega Mart is a trip and fun for all ages. Go early. I did a review for it too.

The Van Gough experience was relaxing and neat. Different experience and beautiful. It was cool learn a bit about the artist and watch how his art changed as he also changed mentally. We bought the VIP went up stairs after did the virtual part as well which was different.

There so much to do in Area 15 and really hard to explain. Zipline, art, food, Rocket Fizz Candy shop, bar, couple of gifts shops. Honestly more I just did not explore the whole building. Great place take kids and families.

I wasn’t aware of what this was before I arrived. My niece wanted to go. She and my brother had a great time and found it very exciting. I found it noisy and expensive. This is probably a great hang out for teens with money.

We were so excited to go here but we’re very disappointed once we arrived. $55 each to enter Omega Mart. This would be ok if you got the story line and experience with that but they tell you after you are in there that it is another $2 a person to get the two hour experience. The staff say it is totally fine to go in without it so we did knowing that we had dinner reservations for later.
It is very confusing and the staff were nit very helpful. We walked around and tried a few things but couldn’t really figure out what was going on without the storyline,
If you are going to go, give yourself a lot of time and buy the extra part. Not sure if it’s worth it but a waste of time.
To enter other experiences in Area 15 it is approximately $18 extra per person for each experience.
The bar in the middle of the building looked nice as did some of the restaurants.

This was my 4th time to Area 15 and the experience gets better each time.
This visit I did the newest attraction LiftOff!! the panoramic views were so pretty, I went as the sun was setting and loved it. You are able to bring drinks with you and they have nice cup holders to place them in. After I went and ate at The Beast and ordered my favorite Pizza The BRONX.

We came here as we’d seen lots of videos/pictures on IG and lots of advertisement around vegas. When we arrived everyone was super friendly and the atmosphere and look was great but as we went round the different experiences they were extremely over priced for what was available, we left after not long and was really disappointed.

After seeing this on tiktok we were sooooo excited to check out the omega mart. We pre-purchased our tickets online and we were wowed by the inside of the building. We walked around for about 10 minutes before our entry time at 1220. Once inside we opted to do the 2 hour challenge but when we got into the omega mart and surrounding areas it was sooooooo crowded we couldn't do any of the activities. We walked around for about 20 mins. before deciding we didn't want to waste our last day in vegas waiting in crazy lines.

Such a waste of time and money. This whole complex is probably great for kids and young adults. The staff is not helpful at all. They wont explain what anything is. They just tell you that you have to buy tickets. We did the Lost Spirits Distilary. It was pretty expensive and not at all what I thought it would be. You gets basically 4 shots of different rums. You wander around a barely lit area for awhile. There are about 10 minutes worth of entertainment. Not worth the time or money.

After seeing some videos online, my wife and I wanted to check this complex out as something different..... Different it is! The atmosphere is very well done and you feel like you are taking part in something unique the moment you walk in the door. That is when you realize that everything in there is its own cash grab.

Let's start with the good. The staff at the complex were all very friendly and accommodating across the board. We popped into multiple business and did not encounter an employee that made us turn around. Additionally, the sculptures leading into the entrance are unique as well.

The unfortunate thing is that there are only about a half dozen "unique" experiences to take part in. The rest are normal businesses you could find anywhere. A few examples.
- There is a golfing simulator
- There is an adult arcade(Booze, food and arcade machines)
- There is a general concession area

For unique experiences, everything we tried felt overpriced. They have an AI machine that reads brainwaves and responds to it. We didn't try it because it was $5 to ask one question. We did take part in Museum Fiasco. A unique and fun experience surrounded by mirrors, programmable lights, and a lot of very powerful sound(used in a good way as I am a bit of an audiophile). You are given a pair of glasses to help distort your view of the mirrors/lights and really get something that is one of a kind.... Then it wears off after about 2 minutes. They offer different shows every hour at a cost of $18/person for the day.

Our second experience was an immersive art experience. A room with a 360 degree view of an artists work(We had Gustav Klimt). The only downfall here was that seats were provided and you were not really encouraged to walk around. 360 degrees turned out more like 270 if I had to be honest. May be my fault, but didn't seem like I was missing much. The experience here was to project a bunch of art over some sound with fancy transitions. No words, no segways(to my knowledge) and about 35 minutes in length. Like the previous comments, this was just disappointing. I don't feel like I need to do this one again.

From what we have read and seen both before and after our trip. The Omega Mart seems to be the best experience here. People claim 3-6 hours of entertainment are possible in a grocery store like setting where nearly everything can be interacted with. We did not try this out as the cost to get in is $50 per person. I do feel it would be wrong to not acknowledge that this was the most popular item while visiting as well.

Overall I can't recommend this at all. Given the prices of the events I do not feel like I got any sort of value out of the things that I took part in.
