Deno's Wonder Wheel celebrates season premiere of 'Stranger Things'

CONEY ISLAND -

The hit Netflix show "Stranger Things" has taken over Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park.

The Coney Island amusement park has transformed into the summer of 1985 in Hawkins to celebrate the show's season three premiere.

Binge-watchers who already finished every episode say it's a great way to kick off the weekend.

"I'm kind of scared but thrilled at the same time," one parkgoer said.

The park's well-known rides like the Wonder Wheel, tilt-a-whirl, bumper cars and carousel have been filled with in-show elements. "Stranger Things" prizes like sunglasses, tattoos and more were also given out all over the park. 

The park's "Stranger Things" theme will continue through Sunday.
