Fancy spending a day at Hopper's cabin solving mysteries? You're in luck...
Stranger Things, which is filmed in Atlanta, Georgia, uses several real places for the locations in the fictional Hawkins. The Palace Arcade, Melvald's General Store, Hawkins Lab and even Starcourt Mall are all real life locations that you can actually go and visit. Hopper's cabin is also one of those places.
Hop's cabin has been the scene of many many iconic moments in the show. The location was first introduced in season 2 when he brought Eleven to the cabin to hide her from the government and where he showed of those dance moves. In season 3, the cabin is destroyed by the Mind Flayer and presumably left abandoned after the Byers' moved out of Hawkins with Eleven in tow.
Who knows if we'll ever see it in the show again but the good news is that the cabin still actually exists... and you can actually go there to play a Stranger Things-inspired escape game.
Located in Powder Springs, GA (just outside of Atlanta, where the show is filmed), the cabin can be found on Sleepy Hollow Farm. It's also where the pumpkin patch was located in season 2. The cabin was built specifically for the show and now, it's being used as an escape room.
The description of the Escape Room reads: "If you have seen Stranger Things season 2, then you probably saw Hopper's Cabin a lot. Hopper and 11 [sic] spent much of the season in the cabin. Some of you may know that Hopper's Cabin is actually located on Sleepy Hollow Farm, which is where Escape Woods is located so we have decided to turn it into an escape room adventure for all of the Stranger Things fans out there.
In this adventure, you and your team will have to explore Hopper & 11's cabin, decipher clues, unlock doors, and solve the mystery before time runs out. Don't miss out on this totally unique adventure in the actual cabin from the hit show!"
The experience costs $33 per person and a private group of 10 friends are able to play for $309 total. (That means you'll get the full cabin to yourselves and solve the mystery together without any mouth breathers hanging around your party.)
