Just one year after the release of the original Stranger Things experience, Starcourt Mall, another new addition has made its debut on the platform. Though season five of the popular sci-fi series isn't set to come out until 2024, and season four wrapped up in July 2022, Netflix is seemingly hoping to fill the space between these releases with its mysterious Countdown to Stranger Things Day experience. For more information on this experience, including how to earn all of the free UGC items inside it, continue reading below.

Steve's Bat, Eddie’s Guitar, and the 80s Bike
All three of these items, Steve's Bat, Eddie’s Guitar, and the 80s Bike, can be earned by participating in the experience's interactive viewing party. To partake in this event, simply join the Countdown to Stranger Things Day/Stranger Things Immersive Watch Party experience and look for the massive movie screen. If a showing is currently playing, feel free to walk right up and join everyone who's watching it! Or, if a showing isn't playing, come back at the next hour to start right at the beginning.
While the episode is playing, random interactive elements will appear on your screen, such as demogorgons attacking, items falling, and prompts appearing. When these prompts appear, specifically the one that asks you to "Call Will", be sure to participate—the more that you click your mouse button during these prompts, the more points you will earn!
As you earn points, the bar on the right-hand side of your screen will begin fill up. Once it's filled all the way up to the top, you'll be able to click on the CLAIM button that's next to each item and unlock them all. Keep in mind that these items will only be available until Nov. 13, 2022, so grab them while you can!
What is Stranger Things Day?
Stranger Things Day is a reoccurring pop-culture holiday that takes place on November 6, the day Will Byers went missing, and celebrates all things Stranger Things. This year, Netflix has gone bigger than they've ever gone before, with screenings of Season 4 Volume 2 taking place in theaters across North America, a real-life version of Hawkins popping up in cities across the world, and even a step into the Roblox Metaverse for those who can't attend the in-person events. On Sunday, November 6, 2022, a live screening of Stranger Things' first ever episode, "Chapter One: The Vanishing of Will Byers," will start at 1pm CT and repeat every hour, on the hour, until Sunday, November 13, 2022.
