‘Stranger Things’ drive-into experience will turn your world upside down

by Samantha Davis-Friedman

These days, many people feel like they’re living in the Upside Down, the alternate—and much scarier—universe from the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things.” But this October, they can actually enter the Upside Down during the “Stranger Things” immersive drive-into experience.

During this brand-new unique-format event presented by Netflix and Secret Cinema (a U.K.-based company specializing in 360-degree participatory secret worlds), fans of the supernatural series will travel back in time to 1985 and become residents of Hawkins, Ind., all from the “safety” of their car.

After gathering at the Starcourt Mall (in a central Downtown Los Angeles location), they will quickly become immersed in a 60-minute “drive-into” experience as Hawkins’s story unfolds all around them. Participants will re-live some of the best moments from the series—and maybe even witness a few unexpected and unusual occurrences—while they travel through real-life locations from the show and experience amazing audio and visual effects. But beware, “Stranger Things” fans may also discover a more sinister truth than they ever imagined. After all, Hawkins is a town built on secrets, so things can quickly turn upside down.
