Stranger Things: The Experience

The outside appearance of Pullman Yards doesn’t give too much away considering the wild ride you’re about to embark on – although admittedly there’s an excellent first selfie opportunity stranger things log out there. However, once you’re inside, the intrigue ramps up pretty quickly. The official party line – one that a slick cameo by Paul Reiser’s Dr. Owens explains – is that the Hawkins Lab has reopened and invites you to take part in a sleep study that will help improve the lives of Hawkins residents.

Of course, once you’re in the lab, it becomes apparent pretty quickly that people like Dr. Brenner have ulterior motives in bringing you here. Who would have thought that now? As the experience progresses, you’ll discover the mysteries of the lab, form new alliances with familiar faces, and use abilities you didn’t even know you had. You’ll need them as a brand new adventure awaits you in Upside Down to save a beloved member of the gang.

We don’t want to spoil it so we won’t share too much of the storyline here, but let’s just say that it’s a completely original storyline that you haven’t seen in the Netflix show. Oh, and while the hands-on effects and cameos from everyone’s favorite Demogorgon hunters are fun, it’s the special effects that really add the wow factor. One jump scare in particular made our group gasp with excitement and left no doubt that a trip to the Upside Down is no easy feat. Especially with a very menacing villain on the loose…

After escaping the clutches of the Demogorgons, we were then unleashed in the ‘Mix-Tape Area’, which is a glorious neon-filled playground stranger things Locations and 80s nostalgia. The players in our group made our way to the Palace Arcade for a bit of button-pushing on the likes of Space Invaders and Joust (there’s no Dig Dug here, but it doesn’t seem like we’ve got a chance anyway had to beat MADMAX’s score). Elsewhere, you can explore the Family Video Store where Steve and Robin spend their day, or head to Rink-O-Mania to check out the exclusive merchandise.

For starters, we absolutely need one of these pink Rink-O-Mania jackets!

The photo shoot opportunities here in the mix tape are particularly numerous; Fans will be dying to take a selfie in the Byers’ living room with that infamous wall of Christmas lights in the background. Do a little hunt around and you’ll find costumes and props from the show, including Steve Harrington’s infamous baseball bat and a huge mural of our favorite Eddie Munson, a fan favorite.

One of the outstanding at Stranger Things: the experience must be the eating places. Maybe it was our growling stomachs after our time in the lab (escaping demons is hungry work), but being faced with the sight of Surfer Boy Pizza serving up huge slices was heaven. Even sweeter was the trip to Scoops Ahoy, where we set sail on an ocean of flavors: pecan caramel, in case you’re wondering. Oh, and The Upside cocktail bar is a must for its selection of themed cocktails. After a brief flirtation with the tequila-infused Friends Don’t Lie, I settled on the bourbon and peanut flavored Yuri Gonna Love This, a hit with anyone with a sweet tooth.

You could easily spend a few hours (and a lot of money with all that merch) on the mix tape, and that worked out for our team. Blushing from a successful escape from the Hawkins lab and a little waddled from all that pizza and ice cream, we headed home with plenty of pictures and memories to commemorate our trip to Hawkins. Remember: Friends don’t lie, so trust us when we say it’s one spectacular roller coaster ride that fans of the show have to check out!
