Fans of the global phenomenon Netflix series Stranger Things will get a chance to unlock their powers and help Eleven save Hawkins
The year is 1986. The town is Hawkins. But the location is Toronto. Netflix and leading global live-entertainment discovery platform Fever have teamed up to deliver Stranger Things: The Experience, a new immersive experience which opens at Cinespace Studios Marine Terminal in Toronto 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.
Guests are taken on a perilous adventure through the darker side of Hawkins, including the infamous Hawkins National Lab and the Upside Down. This brand 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. With the gang’s hometown on the line, there’s room in Hawkins for heroes of all ages (5+) to work together to save the day.
After their escape from the Upside Down, guests will be free to 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.
Join the waitlist now for the chance to purchase tickets before anyone else! Sales will open to the general public starting February 21. Tickets are limited and can be purchased in advance by visiting strangerthings-experience.com/toronto.
Co-produced by Netflix and Fever, this groundbreaking experience takes fans of the global hit series inside some of its most iconic settings on an intimate guided new adventure alongside their favourite characters before the chance to hang out and explore major locations from the show.
Stranger Things: The Experience follows the smash-hit successes of the first official Stranger Things Stores that brought the “Upside-Down” to New York City and Los Angeles in Fall 2021, welcoming hundreds of thousands of guests and fans of the show over the course of its run. That followed Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience which took place in Los Angeles in Spring 2021, selling out every day for more than seven months and receiving rave reviews.
Netflix and Fever are bringing the groundbreaking, in-person live multimedia experience Stranger Things: The Experience to Canada for the first time.
The venue, located at Cinespace Studios Marine Terminal, will be transformed into iconic sets and challenges from Stranger Things.
Tickets are limited and prices will start at $49 per person and can be booked at stranger things experience.com/toronto.
Though there’s room in Hawkins for heroes of all ages, this experience contains mature language and graphic imagery and effects. Children under 5 will not be admitted, and anyone under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
The Experience traveled to various cities in 2022 including New York, San Francisco, London, LA and Atlanta, with Paris and Toronto opening this March.
Fans can expect mind-blowing audiovisual effects but are warned that they will also have to face their fears as things can quickly turn uʍop ǝpᴉsdn.
