Strange things have been known to happen in taxi rides across the country. But riders using Lyft on Halloween weekend are set for even Stranger Things than usual.

Netflix and Lyft have teamed up to give passengers living in Los Angeles and Philadelphia some new nightmares this coming weekend. On Oct. 27 and Oct. 28, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. local times, Lyft riders can utilize "Strange Mode" to summon a vehicle that may or may not take them deep into the underbelly of the Upside Down — the haunting dimension that harbors the Demogorgon (and occasionally harbors David Harbour), featured in the Duffer Brothers' '80s-set thriller Stranger Things.

Exactly what's going to happen to the folks lucky (or unlucky as it were) enough to experience one of these rides? Glad you asked! Look no further than the video below for a sneak peek at the ride from hell: 

For those who don't live in Los Angeles and Philadelphia, Lyft is still offering ways to turn your ride into a Stranger Things experience. From Oct. 26 through 27, starting and ending at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. local time, passengers can use "Strange Mode" to transform in-app Lyft vehicles into icons from the Stranger Things universe, including waffles and Christmas lights.

Stranger Things returns Oct. 27. Follow THR.com/StrangerThings for continuing coverage of the Netflix thriller's second season.
