Located at Tilling Road Troubadour, Brent Cross, London NW2 1LW We were invited as VIP guests for the purpose of a review, and we were absolutely delighted as my teenage nerds love the Netflix show Stranger Things.
We arrived by car as we had a disabled member of our group. They had parking available for blue badge holders, so we found it easy to park. In general you would have to park elsewhere and make you way to the venue, which is well signposted and easy to find. The Experience is interactive and allows you to join in your favorite show. All actors are in character and made it more believable so you can now go and Join Eleven, Dustin, Mike, Lucas, Max, and Will for a very special episode you are a star part of ! You will Go inside Hawkins Lab for a 45 minute immersive experience featuring a brand-new episode with special effects.
You can be the hero and unlock your power in a brand-new, exclusive Stranger Things story line and Interact with your favourite Stranger Things characters This Netflix and fever production has incredible special effects in 4D which I can’t tell you about and spoil the experience..
You can then Explore their 80s-themed shops and iconic locations straight from the show like the video store and ice cream parlour You can buy themed food & drinks and take home exclusive merchandise which I thought was expensive It’s free to Take photos though like in the Byers’ living room, and in an 80s-style photo booth(extra charge) or at the Palace Arcade, and with a Demogorgon which we did and got some fabulous shots
Duration: the immersive experience lasts 45 min., but you are welcome to stay and hang out in the Mix-Tape for as long as you’d like which was really cool playing 80s music and had a great atmosphere.. pizzas corn dogs and ice creams There is a Age requirement for this experience that it’s recommended for ages 13+. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Due to the nature of the experience and special effects, children under 5 will not be admitted …remember Parking is only available for customers with accessibility needs. Please use public transport or park elsewhere. The venue is wheelchair accessible There is sequences of flashing lights, which may affect guests who are susceptible to epilepsy. Dress to impress. Be part of the fun and dress for the 80s. Lots of mullet hair styles on display from the die hard fans and shoulder pads and leg warmers.
We had a lot of fun and would recommend it to anyone who’s a fan of the show. It was really well done, and we got some fabulous merchandise. Even though it was pricey, it was a 16th birthday treat and the ice cream was delicious. We rate this a 5star experience and it’s not here for long so get booking asap.
Price: from around £57.00 for an adult, 42.00 for a youth and £46.00 for senior/youth/NHS
