54: Stranger Things Experience

2023-01-07

  • For Christmas, Ellie bought us tickets to The Stranger things experience in London.
  • So, once again, due to the Train Strikes, I found myself driving into central London.
  • First stop, I dropped off some things for Ellie, then we got the tube Brent Cross and walked to the show.
  • First, let me start by saying that, like most of the western world, I things Stranger Things is a masterpiece.
  • It’s produced one of the best scenes in television history. You know which one I mean, don’t you.
  • So, to say I was excited was an understatement.
  • The experience is split into two.
  • Firstly you participate in some immersive theatre.
  • Invited to Hawkins Lab to participate in a sleep study, you are welcome to the lab by some cranky scientists, all slightly unhinged.
  • Then you are briefed by a member of the PR team, and everything goes downhill from there!
  • I won’t ruin the surprise, but it was an enjoyable experience, both Ellie and I had fun, and there was indeed some draw-dropping moment.
  • Also, the action was led by the main series actors, which was pretty sweet.
  • Once the main show is over, you visit some of the locations from the series.
  • The setting reminded me of an exhibition setup, with a stall for each element.
  • It was pretty much a glorified gift shop with ice cream from Scoops Ahoy, Pizza from Surfer boy Pizza as well as merchandise to buy.
  • But that didn’t distract from the overall experience.
  • There were plenty of photo ops too which was fun.
  • All in all Ellie and I had a great time. I’ll give it a solid 4 out of 5.
