Strange & Revamped Tours at Atlanta Movie Tours

Atlanta Upside Down Tour

Atlanta is a hot bed of filming activity and being huge fans of the Netflix hit Stranger Things we are thrilled to be able to take guests to some of the great locations featured on this show! Deciding which ones to kick things off with was no easy feat and we will be building on this for tours in the future, including a long version, think all-day, where you’ll immerse yourself in the world of the Upside Down!

For now, the Atlanta Upside Down Tour is available on various days during the week and weekend and you can always book a private tour for your group so you can tell us when you want to go! This 3.5 hour tour is chock-full of clips, fun stories from our Insiders and so much more that you’ll have to Get In. Geek Out. to experience for yourself!

We want to ensure that we respect production and locations so while we can’t show you everything, we promise you’ll have a blast! The excitement around this show and tour is off-the-chain and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to add this to our other great tour offerings! Make sure to binge the show before the tour because another thing we promise is that we will all be talking about that Season 3 ending! If we could just get them to turn the Plaza Arcade into a real 80’s-style arcade we would be geeking out even more!

Location Shoutout: Sleepy Hollow Farm (http://sleepyhollowtrees.com) is a 60-acre family-owned farm 30 minutes outside of Atlanta where families, friends, and teammates can bond outdoors in nature. The farm started as a cut-your-own Christmas Tree farm back in the 1970’s and has expanded over the years to include various fun activities such as a very popular corn maze and pumpkin patch in the fall. Sleepy Hollow Farm also started the first outdoor escape “room” business called Escape Woods where teams work together to solve clues and puzzles to escape from their various family-friendly and scarier escape game adventures. With 3 generations of family living and working on the farm Sleepy Hollow Farm is truly a family-owned and operated destination.

One final shoutout! Saturday, August 10th from 10am-4pm the Jimmy Carter Library & Museum, as part of their Georgia On My Screen Exhibit, will be having a STRANGE SATURDAY and it’s free (definitely snag a ticket for the full exhibit though!! Come in costume, join us in the lobby and live out your Stranger Things fantasies. For one special day, things at the Carter Museum will be stranger than the town of Hawkins. Their spacious museum lobby will be transformed into an 80s video arcade with D&D demos, panel discussion, a live podcast (thanks to The Upside Down Podcast – listen if you’re not already!!) and more!
