Stranger Things’ Upside Down Comes to Hollywood
How did Netflix reward Stranger Things fans in advance of the debut of Season 2? By hosting its first ever official binge race at Goya Studios! 150 binge racers converged at the space to watch more than nine straight hours of the show. The event was produced by Damminger Productions.
But the fun did not end there, the entire design-forward campus was reinvented to bring Stranger Things to life, making it a spectacular special event. Per Mashable, “Netflix’s event truly put binge racing to the test. Supplying a functioning ’80s arcade as well as an eerie vine-covered theater filled with couches and an endless amounts of coffee, pop, and food — including grilled cheese, cereal, candy, and of course waffles — it felt like Hawkins had come to Hollywood.”
After eight hours, the approximately 50 remaining bing racers emerged from Stage C’s converted movie theater “looking nothing short of battle-hardened, squinting at the blaring Hollywood sun as a crowd of employees handed out medals proudly declaring them ‘official binge racers.’”
To fuel up for the strange day ahead, they headed to the Eggo waffle truck for a taste of the ubiquitous food and also noshed on eggs, bacon and orange juice. Now fans just have to hold tight for Season 3.
