A ‘Stranger Things’ Drive-Into Experience is Coming to L.A. in October

*The hit Netflix series “Stranger Things” is bringing a “drive-into” experience to downtown L.A. this October.

The website promises “a brand new event concept where you drive into the world of Hawkins and experience the upside down” with “mind-blowing audio and visual effects.”

Here’s more from PEOPLE: “The series will be transformed into an immersive theatrical production, during which guests will drive their vehicles — in groups of 24 cars — through the multi-level experience. After stopping for periods of time for scenes to play out around them, they will proceed to the next scene to enjoy another “chapter” from their car,” the outlet writes.

The hour-long experience, which will be socially-distanced and COVID-19-safe, will go down at a currently undisclosed location in central L.A. Tickets will be released on August 26th starting at $59 per car.

“Stranger Things has always been larger than life and we wanted to flip the world upside down for our fans,” Greg Lombardo, Head of Experiences at Netflix, said in a statement. “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!”

In related news, series creators the Duffer Brothers have revealed that season 4 will not be the end of the sci-fi show. 

“Season 4 won’t be the end,” co-creator Ross Duffer recently told The Hollywood Reporter. “We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story.”

Season 4 was a month into production when it had to shut down after the coronavirus outbreak hit the U.S. in March. 

“We’ve had a lot more time to work on the scripts,” co-creator Matt Duffer said. “For the first time, we have all the scripts written and we’re able to look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments.”

Everyone’s excited to get back to work, but the priority is the safety of the cast and crew, and that will dictate when we go back,” Ross added.
