About Us

"If You Can Dream It, We Can Theme It" is not just our motto, but what we do best!

In 1997, founder Bruce Barry was contacted to create an engaging children's space for a small church in Arkansas, and Wacky World Studios was born! From the very beginning, we have been the industry leader in creating one-of-a-kind immersive children’s church environments. Most recently we have branched out into healthcare facilities, museums, libraries, parks & recreation, restaurants, retail and even private residences.

In 2020, Wacky World Studios was acquired by PlayCore, which has provided us with an opportunity to accelerate our products, service offerings and customer reach. In return, we are able to bring our award-winning immersive theming solutions to PlayCore's already extensive product and service offerings.

What We're All About!

From concept to reality, we deliver world-class interior one-of-a-kind design solutions that are both educational and inspirational for every space and any budget.
