On Thursday 26th May, Netflix and Eleven opened the ominous gates to the Upside Down across malls in the Kingdom. A thrilling and mysterious experience lay in wait for fans at Riyadh Park, AlNakheel Mall, Mall of Arabia, and Red Sea Mall. The brave guests entered the world of Eleven and her gang via the Rifts for an unforgettable experience filled with supernatural awe, to get excited for the latest installment of this fan favorite.
A Strange Sighting at Elephant Rock
A group of influencers discovered another Interdimensional Rift to the Upside Down while out exploring Elephant Rock in AlUla. Startled by bright lights and strange noises, the intrepid explorers fled, but their phones captured the horrifying but spectacular Rift projected on the mighty rockface. The eerie gate was open for just 24 hours before Eleven managed to close it forever.
