Ever since it's first season, Stranger Things has been a smash hit just about everywhere. If you haven't dreamt of defeating the Demogorgon yourself, well, you're one of the very few. Turns out there's the perfect way to get all of the satisfaction of being apart of the Stranger Things gang, without having to go to the Upside Down. A list of Austin's best libraries, including the Austin Public Library, are holding a Stranger Things Escape Room and it's actually the best thing ever.
On Saturday, June 29th from 10 AM to 6 PM the Austin Public Library is offering time slots to sign up for "Return of the Demogorgon" and visit a Middle School AV Club room in the 1980s. Ringing any bells? The event is totally free and you can RSVP on their Eventbrite page. Make sure to bring and show your ticket at the door, you'll be added to the waitlist and enter when it's your turn!
The hosts of the Stranger Things event announced that due to the high volume of RSVPs, they will be adding more dates and may have more openings coming soon so stay on the lookout and sign up for their waiting list in the meantime!
There are also going to be Stranger Things themed escape rooms at the Little Walnut Creek Branch Library, the University Hills Branch Library and the Ruiz Branch Library, all located in Austin. You can check out each locations date and times on the Eventbrite here!
The event is anticipated to fill up fast and RSVPing doesn't guarantee entrance, so be sure to show up early! You don't want to miss out on something as cool as this. There'll be tons of props and mysteries to solve, plus it's 18+ only so you won't have to worry about any kids ruining the fun. Though I'd still plan on tons of shrieks and screams!
Escape Rooms are already a great time, and going to one with a theme from your favorite TV show makes it even better. Parking is totally free at the library so you won't have to worry about any of that! Grab your friends and take them to the strangest thing Austin has ever offered. You won't regret it!
