With Oversized Toys and Settings, The FOMO Factory Is a Must-Do This Weekend

This Sunday, the FOMO Factory will host an immersive exhibit filled with fantastical sets from iconic childhood moments. Visitors will shed their identity at the door as they shake off their worries and choose their new silly nickname before entering a fantastical world featuring 17 immersive rooms. And, of course, there will be plenty of fodder for social media photos! Check it out at The Galleria on June 23rd, beginning at 11:00 a.m.

Inspired by immersive environments, The FOMO Factory represents a new art form perfectly suited to a generation that venerates the selfie and curates GIFs. Lose yourself in a wall of balloons, spell your name in Scrabble letters, and play with toys in this limited-time pop up shop that speaks to the child in all of us.

In addition to FOMO’s now-iconic Birthday Room with its giant cake and Playground with rainbow seesaw, this new Houston installation will introduce nine new concepts. Visitors can don a lab coat and goggles to conduct weird experiments in the Science Lab, snuggle into a tent to tell ghost stories in the Summer Camp Room, or grab a giant marker and draw on the walls of the Coloring Book Room.

Unlike some immersive spaces, which operate much like a self-serve photo studio, The FOMO Factory specializes in offering an experience and not merely photo backdrops. The journey taps into all five senses by including a theatrical staff, smells piped into rooms, a retro soundtrack, and even tastes of childhood.

The FOMO Factory is located at the Houston Galleria in Suite 4710 on the mall’s third floor. Tickets to the exhibit are $28 for adults and $23 for kids. For more information, visit www.thefomofactory.com.
