Stranger Things: The Experience officially opened its doors in Brooklyn on May 7 with a brand new adventure. The experience, hosted by Netflix and Fever, is set up at The Duggal Greenhouse, which has been transformed into iconic locations in Hawkins, Indiana.
When you step inside, you find yourself in Hawkins Laboratory where you are going to participate in a sleep study. After you are assigned into your color groups by the crew in white lab coats, you walk in to find that not everything is quite what it seems. After a quick test to determine group leaders, you are given a chance to unlock your powers. You’re then put into a room and the teens from “Stranger Things” help get the adventure truly started!
As you go through the experience, you’ll find yourself navigating your newfound powers in the lab and in the Upside Down itself to help Max and Eleven take down a pack of demogorgons. (Fans who come to Stranger Things: The Experience can expect some audio-visual effects and strobing lights, so those with sensitivities to those should proceed with caution.) Along the way, you will also see some sneak peeks at what’s to come in the upcoming fourth season of “Stranger Things,” which premieres on Netflix on May 27.
After finishing the adventure, you find yourself in The Mixtape, which is a recreation of the show’s Starcourt Mall. There you can find the bar with “Stranger Things” themed cocktails, grab some ice cream from Scoops Ahoy, explore the skate shop and video rental shop and try to beat MADMAX’s high score at the Palace Arcade.
There are also tons of photo opportunities in The Mixtape, including sitting in the Byer’s living room, a traditional photo booth, and you can snap a photo with a demogorgon! This is also your opportunity to shop a variety of licensed “Strangers Things” merchandise (as well as some exclusive “Stranger Things: The Experience” merchandise) and complete a QR code scavenger hunt for a special prize.
The Duggal Greenhouse is located at 63 Flushing Ave, Building 268. “Stranger Things: The Experience” will be open to the public on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Time slots are available every half hour and the experience lasts 45 minutes, and guests are encouraged to wear masks at all times and must adhere to local COVID-19 guidelines. Hand sanitizer stations are available to visitors on-site.
Tickets start at $54 and are available at strangerthings-experience.com/
