If, just like us, you’re eagerly waiting for the next chapter of Stranger Things, we have just the right remedy. The Stranger Things Experience has taken over Atlanta, and it’s only 5 hours away from Charlotte by car. The gang needs your help in saving one of their core members from demogorgons and the one and only, Vecna, after a sleep study that has gone terribly wrong. It’s a thrilling adventure into the Upside Down where you’ll uncover your own superpowers, navigate through set replicas, and delight in 80s-themed food and drinks.
In the midst of unexpected twists and turns, you’ll uncover your own special powers to guide El and the gang. We can’t say too much about what you’ll discover, but just know the enigma is a brand new storyline that has been developed by actual show creators, featuring exciting special effects that transport you straight into 1986 Hawkins.
After saving the gang from the imminent threat, you’ll get to relax at the Mix-Tape for as long as you want — it’s an open area that features replicas of Stranger Things locations, from the Byers’ living room to Palace Arcade and Scoops Ahoy, among so many others.
Grab a bite at Surfer Boy Pizza and indulge in a sundae at Scoops Ahoy before trying out the different themed cocktails at The Upside. The interactive space also includes exclusive merch and fun photo-ops, so you can keep a souvenir from your descent into the Upside Down!
You’re already waiting for the release of season 5, so might as well join the adventure!
