Los Angeles, do you copy? Attention Stranger Things fans! Lace up your high-tops, crank up that radio, and get ready to hit the road because it’s time to go back to the 80’s. Join your favorite characters…and even a few threats…for an immersive Stranger Things adventure.
The mysteries of Hawkins arrive in Downton Los Angeles this October. Starting today, fans can sign up for the waitlist at www.strangerthingsdriveinto.com to be the first to get their hands on tickets. Tickets will officially go on sale Wednesday, August 26, and pricing starts at $59 per car, with a variety of packages available.
This groundbreaking live experience takes fans of the global hit series inside some of its most iconic scenes, all from the safety of their own cars. Stranger Things: The “Drive-Into” Experience is an entirely new approach to interactive theater that reimagines live entertainment.
The beloved Netflix original series, created by The Duffer Brothers, will be transformed into an immersive theatrical production, complete with mind-bending sets, actors in costume, and otherworldly special effects. Upon entry, guests will drive their vehicle (in groups of 24 cars) through the multi-level experience, stopping for extended periods of time for scenes to play out around them. They will then be guided to drive to the next scene, where they park again for another “chapter” in the story.
During their journey, fans can expect:
- An epic 60+ minute tour through Starcourt Mall, Russian labs and the Upside Down.
- Encounters with their favorite Stranger Things characters surrounding their convoy.
- Mind-blowing sensory surprises that blur the line between reality and fantasy.
- Plenty of throwback nostaliga that brings the sights and sounds of 1980s Hawkins, Indiana into 2020.
“Stranger Things has always been larger than life and we wanted to flip the world upside down for our fans,” says 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!”
Stranger Things: The “Drive-Into” Experience is co-produced by Netflix and Fever, the premier event discovery platform. Engaging experience-seekers across the globe, Fever inspires its vibrant local audiences to discover the best their city has to offer and supports the creation of unique and unforgettable events. Creative is driven by Secret Cinema, best known for constructing epically scaled, intricately detailed fan experiences based on popular film and TV titles.

Together, Netflix and Fever have combined forces to bring to life a completely new and unique experience filled with sights, sounds and surprises that will leave fans on the edge of their (car) seats.
