Art collective Meow Wolf's permanent interactive installation, "House of Eternal Return," has invited all kinds of odd characters in for a trippy Halloween haunted house. It's located in an old Santa Fe, New Mexico,bowling alley "Game of Thrones" mastermind George R.R. Martin purchased for the group.
If Martin's vision for the bizarre immersive exhibit comes true, a visit to Meow Wolf on Halloween could become a bucket list item for every experimental art and sci-fi fan.
Here's Gaby, who just wants to play, which she'll tell you over and over again.
All kinds of creatures from other universes escaped from their home dimensions to wander the haunted house, including this marching band with abstract heads. The band encourages everyone to join in the music-making.
There's nothing particularly scary about Meow Wolf's "House of Halloween," but it taps into that more enigmatic element of Halloween to deepen a mystery which, fortunately, is open to visit year-round.
This family, normally only present at Meow Wolf in photos and videos, appears in person for the Halloween shows, acting out scenes from life in their home. They're the only characters on hand for the haunted house who won't interact with visitors, supposedly because they're in another dimension.
While Meow Wolf's "House of Eternal Return" exhibit is open year-round, it turns the spookiness up to 11 for Halloween. You enter the exhibit through this Victorian home, but look around long enough and you'll find secret passageways into alternate universes, which the family who lives in the home has apparently disappeared into.

This spider isn't just here for Halloween, it's actually installed permanently in Meow Wolf's parking lot. While the trippy haunted house doesn't have much of a traditional Halloween feel to it, it always feels a little bit like Halloween at Meow Wolf.
