Dragon at Denver immersive experience Distortions Monster World

Distortions Monster World Now Open at Denver Pavilions

Distortions Monster World, a brand new experiential artainment adventure presented by the world-renowned “Monster Makers” at Distortions Unlimited and award-winning production team at Blazen Illuminations, just debuted its limited-run engagement at Denver Pavilions on Denver’s 16th Street Mall.

Distortions Monster World is an immersive adventure for all ages that takes guests through a series of cinematic environments featuring interactive installations and infamous creatures and characters – many recognizable from music, film, T.V., and attractions.

Visitors will be transported to another place as they explore many different worlds in a more than 19,000 square foot space where giants roam, aliens have arrived, and you never know what’s around the corner – life-sized ghouls, snarling gargoyles, creatures of the night, and more! This is the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal for an otherworldly photo. 

The monsters featured throughout the exhibit are the creations of Distortions Unlimited, owners Ed Edmunds and Marsha Taub-Edmunds, their talented team, and the many artists and sculptors Distortions works with. Distortions has been making monsters out of Greeley, Colo. for more than 40 years and is one of the preeminent designers of animatronic monsters and displays for the dark entertainment industry. Edmunds, Taub-Edmunds and the creative team at Distortions Unlimited were also the focus of the reality show “Making Monsters” that aired on The Travel Channel for three seasons.

Distortions Monster World is a celebration of a lifetime of making monsters and a way to share our love for all things monster,” said Edmunds. “I have never seen monsters as ugly, and certainly haven’t associated them with just one time of the year. My hope is that visitors will walk away appreciating the art and beauty behind these creatures, and realize there is more to monsters than meets the eye.” 

Each scene features vibrant theatrical lighting and immersive sound design, projection, special effects, and more. These elements of the exhibit are designed, developed, and produced by the award-winning production team from Blazen Illuminations, a Loveland, Colo.-based business. 

Distortions Monster World is a large, explorable, interactive art installation,” stated Nate Webb, co-owner of Blazen Illuminations. “This artainment experience will immerse visitors in unique environments using interactive technology, props, sets, and engaging storylines — all tied together by the theme of a lifetime of making monsters.”
