Stranger Things – The Encounter

Heads up, fans of Stranger Things – we checked and season 5 of the hit Netflix series is only going to drop in late 2025. Bummer. In the meantime, we’ve got something that’ll at least quell the need for new content. You can join Eleven, Mike, and the rest of the gang at Stranger Things – The Encounter

It’s an immersive experience that’ll be taking place from 30th June-1st October 2023 at Bugis+. Throw on your denim jackets, flannel shirts, and scrunchies – here’s what we know about the event:

Snap 80s throwback pics at 7 themed rooms

Once you cross the velvet ropes, you’re basically entering 1980s Hawkins, Indiana – the town where Eleven and the gang all live and hang out. There’ll be 7 iconic locations straight from the Netflix show.

Chill out at Joyce’s House, where Will first communicated to Joyce through Christmas lights. Otherwise, the Hellfire Club might be more your vibe if you love heavy metal and Dungeons & Dragons. There’s even going to be a recreation of the Palace Arcade and Starcourt Mall where we hear there’s merch up for grabs.

But it wouldn’t be a complete Stranger Things experience if you don’t get to visit the Upside Down. That’s right – the creepy parallel universe to Hawkins will be open. And the portal here? That’ll be at The Lab where Eleven developed her powers. As for whether you’ll meet any demogorgons or even Vecna – that remains to be seen at the eerie Creel House.

Hunt for digital collectibles to create personalised merch

Before you go all trigger-happy taking a thousand pics for the ‘Gram, make sure you interact with the exhibits. Your entry ticket is a wristband that can help you collect digital memorabilia from the Stranger Things universe – think Eggo waffles and the Hellfire Club logo.

And trust us, it’s worth the extra minutes finding these collectibles. The digital collectibles go towards customising your own avatar, which you can then have printed on a t-shirt or tote bag. 

Enjoy sundaes & pizzas at the Starcourt Mall

When you’re done exploring Hawkins and the Upside Down, you’ll get a chance to settle rumbly tummies at the Starcourt Mall. And yes, some familiar stalls will be making an appearance.

You’ll find ice cream and sundaes at Scoops Ahoy, where Robin and Steve first discovered the secret Russian base below the mall. Plus, there’ll be pizzas at Surfer Boy Pizza, where Argyle and Jonathan worked part time in California.

Visit Stranger Things – The Encounter in Singapore

Right now, you can score an early bird special. Ticket prices start from $33 (U.P. $39) for a regular pass and $99 (U.P. $109) for a VIP pass. The regular pass comes with a $5 voucher when you spend more than $80 on merch at the Starcourt mall. 

Yup, that same club tee as seen on Eddie.

It might be worth it for superfans to splurge for the VIP pass, as this gets you a Hellfire Club cap and t-shirt, as well as priority to jump queues with fast track entry.

We’re getting a little ahead of ourselves because Stranger Things – The Encounter is only coming at the end of June, after all. But that just means there’s plenty of time to binge-watch all 4 seasons on Netflix before you go.

P.S. If you can’t wait to visit the experience, you can have a tour of Hawkins right in our backyard yourself. Check out these Stranger Things places in Singapore.
