You’ll travel back in time to 1985, and all you will need is your car (and a ticket of course!). The cost of this experience, which starts at $59 per vehicle, is based on the number of people in the car. Just 24 cars at a time will enter the Stranger Things world, which is full of 80’s tunes, familiar characters (hello, Eleven!), and iconic settings like the Starcourt Mall and the chilling “upside down.”
Recommended for ages 13 and up, this Stranger Things drive-through is sure to have you on the edge of your seat. Patrons will drive through parts of the experience while stopping often to witness scenes unfold. With audio and visual effects, along with actors, this unique experience will involve some immersive aspects that can be experienced right from your car without even rolling down the window.
To truly get the most of your experience driving through the fictional town of Stranger Things’ Hawkins, guests are encouraged to explore the Hawkins Online Portal. The portal is where you can learn all about the experience, from your assigned character and dress code to the location and other hidden secrets. Dressing up is definitely encouraged, as you will be a part of the experience, instead of just a witness or audience member.
Along with your Stranger Things-inspired attire, a smartphone with Wi-Fi connectivity is a must to gain full audio access to the experience. Connecting your smartphone to your car’s Bluetooth speaker or to a separate speaker is highly encouraged.
Before you drive your limo or bus to the event, please be aware that there are some minor restrictions on vehicles here. Buses, RVs, bicycles, motorcycles, convertibles without a top, and any vehicle over 7 feet tall will not be able to explore the world of Stranger Things.
Although seeing the Netflix series isn’t required to enjoy Stranger Things Drive-Into, having watched Stranger Things will greatly enhance the overall experience. Iconic characters, recognizable settings and sinister monsters await with this immersive, Los Angeles-based drive-into show.
