It’s billed as an interactive retail experience, but no, you’re not just splashing cash to spend more money. The pop-up, sprawled over 10,000 sq ft over two levels in the mall, will have six rooms of interactive audiovisual activities that will take visitors through the Stranger Things universe that’s dripping with 80s nostalgia.
Channel your inner Eleven, Will or Dustin or the rest of the gang as you make your way through Joyce’s House, scope out the situation at The Lab, navigate through the Upside Down and even venture into the chilling Creel House. And after all that, reward yourself with bites from Surfer Boy Pizza and Scoops Ahoy. Will Vecna or the Demogorgon make an appearance at the experience, organised by Mighty Jaxx and Netflix? Your guess is as good as ours.
What we do know, though, is that the experience is expected to last about 45 minutes. Need more time here for more thrills and spills? There’s a Starcourt Mall area that fans can access for an additional S$15, to enjoy more food and drinks and buy exclusive merch. Pics or it didn’t happen? Schlep over to the Stranger Things Visitor Centre in Bugis+ Level 2 that has free admission and where photo opportunities, a Demopets statue and more merch await.
