As restrictions on gatherings lifted, so has the revenue of one of Las Vegas’s most unique hangouts: Area 15.
A play on the mythologized Area 51 down the road, the Area 15 futuristic shopping experience, art exhibits, and party spaces have generated $13 million in revenue and counting.
From Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart to the Museum Fiasco, Area 15 Las Vegas is one of the most visually arresting and mind-bending experiences in Sin City.
However, prices vary per experience and Area 15 tickets.
In the following article, we’ll break down the cost of Area 15 Vegas and drop some insight into this multimedia experience.
Area 15: What is it?
Developer and Area 15 CEO Winston Fisher described Area 15 as an “experience box” to the Reno Gazette-Journal. The monolithic black box minutes from the Las Vegas strip don’t offer its secrets from the outside, except for its eye-popping art garden as you approach its main doors.
To get a sense of what really goes on inside, you must go inside and experience the Area 15 shopping experience, art installations, virtual reality simulations, restaurants, bars, rave spaces, and Avant-Garde museum-quality studios.
Inside you’ll also find Hale’s Comet: The first indoor, electric dual-track suspension attraction in America. Also, you’ll see a 23-foot-high Japanese apple with 5,000 LED lights at the heart of Area 15’s Oddwood.
Or you can enjoy a cocktail at the Lost Spirits Distillery and the Emporium Bar and Arcade.
Area15 tickets for general admission are free up to 10 p.m. and are referred to as Entry Passes. However, many of the best exhibits and experiences require an extra admission fee.
Meow Wolf’s Omega Mart costs $45 for adults, $40 for children, and $35 for Las Vegas residents. At this experience, one of Area 15 anchor establishments, you’ll feel like you’ve left your plane of existence for another dimension.
Shopping blends with sensory overload and striking visuals. You can spend hours enjoying the visceral experience of the Omega Mart.
Another exciting venue to check out at Area 15 is Wink World. This experience cost $18 for adults, $13.50 for children. This is one of the most immersive halls of mirrors in the world and was created by one of the founders of the Blue Man Group.
Mind-bending reflections mixed with curated, must-see art make Wink World one of Area 15’s most enjoyable (and affordable) attractions.

One of the best things about Area 15 is that the space and the attractions inside are constantly rotating. On one trip, you might catch Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, and on another, the zombie apocalypse through the Army of the Dead.
Honestly, this immersive shopping and entertainment experience is a must-see next time you visit Las Vegas.
