Stranger Things: The Experience is now in the Los Angeles area, but tickets are disappearing faster than water evaporating in the desert. November is almost sold out, and only a limited number of tickets are available in December. Fortunately, the event continues into next year, with good availability in January and February.
Recommended for ages thirteen and over, the forty-five minute immersive experience has the audience volunteering as test subjects for an experiment at the Hawkins Lab, providing an opportunity to interact with live actors portraying their favorite characters from the popular Netflix television series. The event promises a greatest hits selection of fan-favorite moments, plus photo ops, and food options. After completing the experiment, guests are invited to remain in the Mix-Tape lounge as long as they like.
Prices start at $37 for “Standard Youth” tickets (ages 5-17) and $47 for adults. VIP tickets start at $65 for youths and $87 for adults. There are discounts for Group Bundles. Children under five are now allowed; minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Dressing for the occasion is encouraged but nor required.
Stranger Things: The Experience takes place at 1345 N Montebello Boulevard in Montebello. Get more information at strangerthings-experience.com/los-angeles.
Note: This promises to be an all-new experience, not merely a walkthrough version of the Stranger Things Drive-Into Experience from 2020-2021, reviewed below.
