The Cinespace Studios Marine Terminal in Toronto will be transformed to resemble a certain town named Hawkins circa 1986 for a new Stranger Things immersive experience.
Netflix is teaming up with global live-entertainment discovery platform Fever on Stranger Things: The Experience opening on March 31, 2023.
“With this experience, fans are thrown into a world of supernatural mystery, enduring friendships, and ‘80s nostalgia in an atmospheric celebration of the Stranger Things universe,” reads a press release.
As part of the experience, visitors will be able to tour the infamous Hawkins National Lab and the Upside Down.
This new storyline, developed exclusively with the show’s creators, “propels guests into a parallel universe where they must run the gauntlet of terrors lurking in the dark and unlock their secret powers to help save the town.”
Visitors can also explore Mix-Tape, where they can meet real-life characters from the Stranger Things world, grab a USS Butterscotch sundae at Scoops Ahoy, attempt to knock off MADMAX’s high score, sample a tasty pie from Surfer Boy Pizza, try a unique cocktail at the first ever Stranger Things-themed bar, snatch up exclusive merchandise, and even get up close and personal with Vecna himself.
Children must be five or over to attend, under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
Tickets are limited and prices will start at $49 per person and can be booked at strangerthings-experience.com/toronto. The waitlist is now open for a chance to purchase tickets early. Sales open to the general public on Feb. 21.
