While filming for the new season of Stranger Things has unfortunately been delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus, Netflix and the team behind the beloved horror-thriller series is now offering another social distancing-approved way to reconnect with Hawkins through an all-new “Drive-Into” experience, which it calls “an entirely new approach to interactive theater that reimagines live entertainment.”
Taking place in downtown Los Angeles, fans can drive into a massive facility set up to resemble the world of ’80s world Stranger Things, including locations such as the Starcourt Mall, the Russian labs we’ve been introduced to in the latest season, and of course, the Upside Down. The entire tour will last more than 60 minutes, featuring your favorite characters from the show and “otherwordly special effects.”
“Stranger Things has always been larger than life and we wanted to flip the world upside down for our fans,” said Greg Lombardo, Head of Experiences at Netflix. “So buckle up like Billy is driving, keep your eyes on the neon lights, and steer clear of the shadows because there’s no telling who or what you might come across in Downtown Los Angeles this October. Whatever you do, don’t get out of your car!”
The Stranger Things: ‘Drive-Into Experience will launch this October, with tickets available over on its website, going for $59 USD per car.
Elsewhere in entertainment, DC Comics’ 24-hour virtual event DC FanDome is going live this Saturday.
