Our Story

"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, restaurants, retail and even private residences.

In 2020, Wacky World was acquired by PlayCore, which has provided us 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.

PlayCore is a purpose-driven Company committed to building stronger communities around the world by advancing play and recreation. The company infuses scholarly learning, through its Center for Outreach, Research, and Education, into its comprehensive family of brands. PlayCore combines best-in-class educational programming with the most comprehensive portfolio of commercial play and recreation products and services to create tailored solutions that match the unique needs of each community served.
