- What does Worlds of Wow do?
We're crazy-passionate about creating destinations at churches to reach kids and families. We believe that church should be a fun place that kids want to go, so we design ridiculously cool, fun environments that impact kids and families of all ages!
How we work with churches is unique, but straight forward. At the heart of Worlds of Wow is our experience in ministry (including former church staff) and our Kingdom-minded focus. We start by understanding the unique DNA of your church and ministry, think through priorities and options and end up with custom concepts and real-world budget numbers.
In addition to amazing themes, Worlds of Wow also designs and fabricates indoor playground equipment for churches. Fact is, we're the only company in the church market that can design, fabricate and install both themed environments and play attractions together. This provides easy one stop solution and budget savings!
- Wait. Theming AND play?
We have some of the most talented artists and play designers around. When combined, our themed play attractions become a kids' favorite-thing-of-all-time.
Having one team design, fabricate and install your theme and play attractions is a huge benefit because there's a big cost savings of working with one company throughout your project, not to mention that cohesively-themed play environments are ridiculously cool for kids.
- We need this, like, now. How long does it take?
Short answer: In as little as four months from start to finish for most projects.
Long answer: We work on projects anywhere from 4–18 months prior to opening date. Typical artwork turnaround time is 2-3 months and installation is usually booked 3-6 months in advance. Most installations take 12-14 days depending on the size and scope of the project.
Bonus: For churches with a licensed day care, we can even have our crews work evenings to ensure you stay open during business hours.
For realz: the earlier we get involved creatively on a project, the better! If you've got an architect or builder already, that's great, we can work and coordinate with them. If you don't yet have one, we can recommend several that work very well with churches.
- OK, so, level with me. How much?
We work on projects from $20,000 to over $1M dollars. We value helping churches be good stewards of their resources, so we always strive to put the maximum Wow factor into every project!
There are three factors in budget ranges: 1. More is more. The more theming and/or play, the more it will cost. 2. Artwork density. Rolling hills and blue skies are one thing; heavily themed, detailed artwork takes more time and costs more. 3. How far does it come off the wall? Generally speaking, the more 3D layers or effects, the more it 'comes off the wall' and the more it costs.
We work together with you right from the start so that what we design will fit your estimated budget with no surprises. While there are lots of budget range options, Worlds of Wow is highly competitive and, most importantly, the best value for custom theming.
- Can you travel to *insert your city here*?
We're a Texas-based company (Dallas/Fort Worth) but we have teams all over the country that travel anywhere. We also incorporate the latest technology to communicate and collaborate together throughout the project.
We've done installations from Washington state to Florida and from California to New York and everywhere in between. We're still looking forward to doing a project in Hawaii however :).

- Worlds of Wow is 'green' and enviro-friendly? Really?
It's not just our predisposition for the color green; we're literally going green with our environmentally-friendly changes and improvements. Here's a fun take on describing the steps Worlds of Wow is making to go green.
Paperless Office - It seems the Internet may be the greatest single greatest tree-saving invention. With all of the electronic communication, project management and file sharing, we've gone almost 100% paperless. As a result, our office paper shredder is getting lonely.
Materials - We're using recycled products in our manufacturing shops and changing to materials that are eco-friendly. The polystyrene we use for 3D sculpts doesn't include Ozone CFC's and HCFC's. The medium density fiber board we use is phase 2 carb compliant and 100% recovered and recycled materials.
Paint - Even our paint is becoming eco-friendly, as we've switched all of our primers, airbrush paints and top coat paints to a water-borne acrylic paint and clear coat.
We are proud to have implemented these initial steps to provide the same high-quality, huge wow-factor environments with a bit more "earth friendly" spin!
