Wink World at Mall of America
The venue blends Wink’s passions for art and music with his experience in black light design and music composing into a playful multi-media fun house. The innovative experience features seven unique rooms, each showcasing a different combination of light, color, sound, technology, and motion. These elements work together to deliver a one-of-a-kind show, and each immersive room offers a distinct tone and mood with elements such as bouncing slinkies, spinning neon ribbons, infinity mirrors, and lasers.
“We love bringing new and creative concepts to Mall of America, so we couldn’t be more excited to welcome the experiential vision Chris Wink has created,” said Carrie Charleston, vice president of leasing at Mall of America. “The magic that Chris Wink brings to all of his creations is truly remarkable and something everyone should experience in person.”
Area15 in Las Vegas
Wink opened the first Wink World in 2021 at Area15 in Las Vegas. The theatrical entertainment destination was his most significant project since departing Blue Man Group in 2017. With the success of the Las Vegas location, Wink is expanding his creative passions to offer Mall of America visitors a memorable experience for all ages.
“It’s essential to have places to physically go and have real and fun social experiences,” said Chris Wink, CEO of Wink World. “We chose Mall of America as our second site because this place really gets it, and we’re excited and honored to be bringing a new dimension of fun to this legendary facility.”
The second Wink World is set to open at the Mall of America this summer. This 5.6 million-square-foot complex boasts of being the most extensive shopping and entertainment complex in North America, with more than 520 world-class retail stores and restaurants. Wink World will join the extensive line-up of entertainment options at Mall of America that includes Nickelodeon Universe, Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium, FlyOver America, and Crayola Experience.
