Anticipation has been building for the release of the third season of Stranger Things, which will premiere on July 4. But in case you binge the whole thing in one night, you can still get a healthy dose of Stranger Things at Coney Island in New York City the next day.

From July 5 to July 7, Stranger Things will take over Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park. Starting at 11:00 AM and running until 6:00 PM, guests will be able to enjoy treats and rides inspired by the Netflix show.

Themed surprises include the Hawkins Fourth of July Spectacular Fireworks Show at 9:30 PM on July 5, and goodies from the Hawkins Scoops Ahoy ice cream shop. Classic Coney Island rides like the Tilt-a-Whirl, Wonder Wheel, and bumper cars will get a Stranger Things makeover.

Coney Island isn’t the only place getting the Stranger Things treatment. This weekend, the Santa Monica Pier in California is also joining in on the fun, with ‘80s cover bands, the Hawkins High School cheerleading squad, food eating competitions, magicians, and the Hawkins Bike Shop.
