ESB brought the Upside Down from Netflix's "Stranger Things" to her entire southern façade with a first-of-its-kind, dynamic light show. There was a special appearance from the "Stranger Things" cast, who debuted the one-of-a-kind, life-size Demogorgon photo opportunity for visitors on the building's open-air 86th Floor Observatory.
"We are happy to unite New Yorkers and our visitors with once-in-a-lifetime experiences at the World's Most Famous Building," said Jean-Yves Ghazi, president of the Empire State Building Observatory.
"Now, our guests can come face-to-face with one of television's most iconic monsters on our 86th Floor Observatory."
ESB in the Upside Down – On Thursday, May 26, the ESB's south side transformed into a portal into the Upside Down.
Cast Visit - That morning, "Stranger Things" cast members Noah Schnapp, Gaten Matarazzo, Cara Buono, and Priah Ferguson visited the Empire State Building for a photo opportunity at the Observatory Experience.
Face the Monster – Fans now have the chance to pose with a life-size Demogorgon on the building's 86th Floor Observatory as he peers out over New York City. The Demo gorgon will remain within the Observatory Experience through July.
These special experiences for fans were in partnership with Netflix and advertising agency Giant Spoon.
The Empire State Building Observatory Experience recently underwent a top-to-bottom reimagination that added a dedicated guest entrance, a digital and tactile museum that celebrates the icon from the moment it was conceived to its current place in pop culture, and a completely re-imagined 102nd Floor Observatory.
