Finish off that Eggo, don your geometric romper and lace up your old-school sneakers; a time-warping trip inside the screen awaits. Stranger Things: The Experience has ripped a rift into the fabric of reality, opening a gate into 1985 Hawkins at Troubadour Brent Cross Studios in London. Put yourself in the shoes of Eleven and the gang as you explore iconic sets, uncover supernatural secrets, live out fan-favourite moments and enjoy themed food and drink. Just be warned the doors to this reality-warping gate close on January 8, so better grab your tickets now as there’s not much time left to visit this epic experience.
Following in the footsteps of San Francisco and New York, London is inviting curiosity voyagers (in the inimitable words of Dustin) to discover the universe of Stranger Things with a wonderfully immersive experience. Netflix and Fever have teamed up to bring the Upside Down to life – minus the apocalyptic ramifications and shady experiments of course.
If the walls of Hawkins laboratory could talk, they’d be whispering shudder-worthy secrets of mind-flaying monsters, unsavoury psych evaluations and otherworldly portals. Well, they won’t be spilling their guts any time soon, but Stranger Things: The Experience invites you to spend an hour exploring the eerie halls of the mysterious laboratory yourself (plus as long as you’d like in the rest of the experience) – overcoming obstacles and hunting for hidden secrets. Who knows, you might even unlock your special power along the way.
In between dodging ominous figures in lab coats and blood-sniffing demogorgons, there’ll be an unlimited time to enjoy Hawkins’ other delights. Namely, the 80s’-drenched Mix-Tape Area where you can wander through sets seemingly plucked straight from the show and experience memorable moments. One minute you could be showing off your Stranger Things-inspired get-up in an immersive photo op, the next you could be gulping down a delicious concoction from the unique themed bar.
Stranger Things: The Experience is an immersive adventure that takes you deep into the world of the supernatural series. To help you along the way, there’ll be a few familiar faces – armed with flashlights and walkie-talkies – to impart some of their heroic wisdom and guide you through the interactive narratives. Make sure you get your tickets now if you want to be part of the story. Wastoids and mouthbreathers need not apply.
