If you haven’t already finished the latest season of Netflix‘s Stranger Things, fear not as this post doesn’t contain any spoilers. After finding out that the show’s Starcourt Mall was built inside Gwinnett Place Mall located in Duluth, Georgia, die-hard fans have been dauntless enough to sneak into the establishment that’s currently under deconstruction.
The streaming platform exceeded the audience’s expectations for season three and made the set as realistic as possible. Around 40 stores were constructed to match the ’80s theme of the show including stores like Burger King, Hot Dog on a Stick, The Gap, and even the series’ fictional Scoops Ahoy.
However, since Netflix officially announced that it won’t be keeping the mall as a permanent tourist destination, fans have been bold enough to sneak into the property before everything disappears. Photos of the set have surfaced online which you can check out below and a virtual tour has been filmed that you can watch in the video above.
While you’re here, be sure to check out the show’s Collector’s Edition Monopoly set.
This is amazing—Stranger Things 3’s Starcourt Mall wasn’t a sound stage. It was all built inside an actual dying mall in Georgia. And the set designers made more than simple storefronts—they made FULL INTERIORS, even for stores that were never seen on-screen… pic.twitter.com/v5RahFLPeR
