Get lost in Wonder World, a new whimsical interactive experience in NYC

Written by

Andy Warhol once said that everyone needs a fantasy, and NYC is certainly embracing the famed artist's words. 

From swimming in sprinkles at the Pint Shop to indulging in all-things rainbow at Candytopia, Gotham is continually falling head over heels for immersive art experiences. Wonder World—which set up shop at Warhol's old loft at 76 Wooster St—has just joined the ranks of New York's wildest artistic endeavors, keeping our multi-colored, surreal fantasies alive.

Though it goes without saying: Ready your Instagram. This new attraction adds a touch of whimsy to its two floors, making each turn more photo-worthy than the previous. All ages will love the balloons floating amongst the airy clouds. Visitors won't be able to resist snapping a selfie with the oversized mushrooms. Taking a dip in the bubble swimming pool and wandering through the flower tunnel are just two parts of the fantasy that deserve attention. You'll most likely want to embrace your inner Alice and jump down the rabbit hole!

Tianyu Qiu, a young NYC-based artist, is the mastermind behind the new immersive experience. General admission is $26, and Wonder World will remain open until Nov 4, so no need to rush to make a visit before back-to-school season. When will you leave NYC and get lost in Wonder World? Grab your tickets here.
