WARNING: This post is full of spoilers, where to find the secret puzzles and what to expect when visiting Meow Wolf Denver.
Meow Wolf Denver – Open Every Door
Just when you think you’ve seen all there is to see in a room, open every door – more lurks behind!
I’m won’t try to explain the layout of the mind-bending Meow Wolf map, as you’ll continuously discover new rooms and experiences.
Below are the 4 different connect worlds with some of the things you can expect to see and secrets to look for in each:
Numina – Six Dimensional Plantet
Magical swamp? Alien planet? However you describe it, my jaw dropped when entering into the lush world of Numina. It’s the largest section with multiple portals into with multiple levels.
It took artists 4 years to create. If you’ve seen Disney’s Strange World, you feel like you’re in the movie!
Speak in to the Ears of Numina: Look for glowing ears on the walls, and if you talk into them, they’ll talk back.
Frog Egg Garden Secret: . It’s in the middle section of the spaceship looking bulb with circular windows near the top of the structure, also known as Cosmohedron Tower. If enough people sit on each cushioned “seats” and touch the windows, the ceiling of “frog eggs” will awaken – chirp and glow pink.
More secrets and puzzles to look for in Numina:
- There’s Qpass readers that do not have a video screen throughout Numina. If you tap your Qpass card, it will trigger an activation.
- When you come across one of the illuminated spheres try touching them. Also known as Faerie Orbs.
- Find the telescopes on the upper walkways, if you point them to the correct location another activation appears.
Eemia – Ice World
Ride a spaceship, sit on an alien robot throne, and get lost in the bright musical cathedral. Keep your eyes up at the sky as its constantly changing and moving.
The ice world has multiple hidden puzzles that trigger activations.
Unlock 2 Meow Wolf Denver Secrets in Eemia:
Secret Wormhole Puzzle: Two robots reside in Eemia, the “navigator” robot is on the left and looks like a thrown you can sit on. and “spider” robot is to the right, looks more like a spaceship.
Using the navigator robot’s controls on the left, align the planets on the ceiling and the robot on the right will open a worm hole in the sky.
You’ll need a QPass to use this activation or see the full cheat code here .
Cathedral Organ: Play the correct pattern on the pipe organ by pushing knobs and pulling cranks and a symphony of sound and colors will fill the space. The Qpass will tell you the exact pattern.
C Street – Explore City Life
Transport into a future metropolis city on C Street and explore the laundry mat, theater, art gallery, even a salon. Our kids loved checking out the 2 cars as they had multiple dashboard controls that were interactive.
Walking on C-Street, one of the payphone’s rang and I picked it up and another person was talking to me on the line – WILD! Our kids hilariously were clueless on what it was or how to use it.
Supposedly there’s more puzzles that are unsolved related to the phones throughout Meow Wolf.
Pizza Pals Playzone: My favorite discovery was the pizza room. Take the stairs down and look at the history of the mysterious pizza palace. Inside the room is another secret door to a robot dancing room. But there’s also a video game here, and a dark “easter egg” (hint: watch the news report with audio).
Sa-Lawn Beauty Shop: Want to try a new hairstyle? The vanity mirror can activate crazy hairstyles to appear on the mirror. Continue to open the closet door to reveal a security room with monitors and a phone. The locker door also opens into another passageway.
The movie theater played a very trippy video that had seats for about 20 people. We watched it for a few minutes. There’s another hidden door inside the theater that takes you into a disco room.
In Mr Corner Store, say hello to Erk. There’s suspected puzzles inside based on all the codes on the wall.
Ossuary – Uncover a Labyrinth
In the subterranean world of Ossuary, it’s a fill with columns, crystals and many mysterious corridors.
Another hidden secret is there’s small numbers, codes and pictures on the wall that can activate certain things in other areas. One example is one specific code opens a memory box that can be used on one of the phones which gives you access to character recordings or specifics tasks.
R@z Nest is the dicey part of Ossuary. Tap your Qpass card on Vend-L vending machine and you’ll be sent on an adventure. In the center of the room, choose an opponent and battle to boxing rats.
Find the secret door from the R@z Nest or Daydreamers and discover the Sequencer Room, full of musical touch screens.

Does Meow Wolf Denver serve food and drinks?
HELLOFOOD Cafe & Bar serves food and drink on the QDOT section of Convergence Station. They serve beer and wine for adults and have good snacks and treats for the kids. Food and drink must be consumed in the cafe, it’s not allowed in the exhibits.
It’s the perfect place to take a break from the mind bending immersive experience of Meow Wolf. We took a pause and enjoyed a local beer and our kids each picked a sci-fi themed ice cream.
How long does it take to walk through Meow Wolf?
Plan to spend about 2-4 hours. There is so much to see, it’s up to you. We left after 3 hours and know there were definitely things we missed out on!
What to wear to Meow Wolf?
Be comfortable and casual. You’re moving the entire time exploring new places. At one point we even crawled on the ground! We visited in the winter but left our coats in the car, however there’s a coat check inside.
Where are the Meow Wolf Locations?
Meow Wolf has 3 location in Santa Fe, Las Vegas, and Denver. Each with their own unique theme and spin:
- Santa Fe, NM is where the first installation was created in 2016 – House of Eternal Return. Get lost in a house full of secret passages and unknown. Make sure to open every appliance, especially the washing machine which is a portal to another universe.

- Denver, CO Convergence Station is the newest and largest of the 3 Meow Wolf locations. Explore this 90,000 square-foot Sci-Fi art exhibition with over 80 exhibits.
While I’m hoping and praying a location comes to Miami or New York, all current locations are in the Western USA. If we head to Santa Fe or Las Vegas, you better believe we’ll be checking out their Meow Wolf.
