Now I’m a bit late to the game but it’s only this year I started to get into Stranger Things, so when I was invited to The experience… I jumped at the chance. The Stranger Things Experience from Netflix and experience discovery platform Fever, offers guests a brand new adventure – developed exclusively with the show’s creators – through the darker side of Hawkins, including a visit to the infamous Hawkins Lab and the Upside Down.

I didn’t know what to expect throughout our time but my friend and I loved it from start to finish. We were totally immersed as we ran from demigorgans and helped the Stranger Things Kids defeat Vecna.

After our escape from the Upside Down, we were  free to explore Mix-Tape, where you’re able to 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 at the Palace Arcade, try a unique cocktail at the first ever Stranger Things themed bar, chat with the friendly skater on Rink-o-Mania, snatch up exclusive merchandise and even get up close and personal with Vecna.

On the day we visited on 6th November for Stranger Things Day, Stranger Things actor Matthew Modine, known for playing Dr Brenner

, stopped by Stranger Things: The Experience in London and surprised some lucky guests venturing through the immersive experience. We just missed out on meeting him but this didn’t dampen our spirits at all.

Stranger Things: The Experience is open in north west London at the Troubadour Brent Cross Studios until January 2023.

The experience lasts for 50 minutes + unlimited time at Mix-Tape, a collection of Stranger Things greatest hits. Tickets are on sale now through Fever’s marketplace here, with prices starting from £39, and group bundles and VIP tickets available.
