Winter 2019

The World

Thousands of adventure-seeking kids of 1980s America descended to Hawkins, Indiana. Population: 10,000…and a couple of Demogorgons too.

From Scoops Ahoy to the Palace Arcade, the Hideaway to Mirkwood; there were coke floats to devour, arcade high scores to beat, tunes to get down to and lifelong friendships to be made...

The Highlights

Devilish dinner

Hawkins residents were in for a shock when they visited Billy and Heather for a dinner party like no other. It was only a matter of time before they were drafted into his army of darkness.

Hopper’s Cabin

When Hopper is away, El will play. If you made it into the woods then you were treated to a teenage shindig, some wild party moves… and a sudden paranormal freak out!

The Forbidden Lab

Beware: Restricted Entry! Those who made it out of the forbidden lab were sure to become whistleblowers and report what horrors they witnessed to the Hawkins Post.

The Upside Down

Remember when the Flayed Army wiped out the town fair? Billy and his undead drove all of Hawkins to Brimborn steel works as the spooky spores of the Upside Down floated in their slipstream.
