Stranger Things is returning to screens next week for its third season and a slew of collaborative releases from the likes of Nike, Levi’s and more already has viewers gearing up for the release. London-based fans however can have the opportunity to get even closer to the show and even access the mythical world of The Upside Down.

Coca-Cola is opening an exclusive arcade, styled after the town of Hakwins in the year 1985 which is the year Stranger Things 3 is set in and coincidentally, the same year New Coke launched in the U.S. Located in Shoreditch, East London, the space is home to authentic, playable ’80s video games.

The free pop-up is open for one day only – July 11 – from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
