Nickelodeon Expands Screens Up AR App With ‘Danger Things’ Interactive Event

Magic portals and floating donuts are just a few of the offerings in this Stranger Things inspired Henry Danger AR experience.

Good news to all those looking to enter the Upside Down. You no longer need a psychokinetic 12-year old to rip open the fabric of space time in order to enter the parallel dimension! Leading up to Halloween, Nickelodeon is bringing its signature Screens Up AR app to its hit show Henry Danger in the “Stranger Things” inspired episode,Danger Things.”

Nickelodeon launched the Screens Up app this past July beginning with the Kids’ Choice Sports Awards. Now, the extended screen experience is making it’s way to the networks live-action original series, Henry Danger, as part of a Stranger Things-themed Halloween episode. 

Titled “Danger Things,” the special episode aired this past Monday and included everything from swirling whirling portals, to a creepy creature from another dimension as Kid Danger and Captain Man embarked on a daring rescue mission to save the day:

“When Piper (Ella Anderson) is taken by a creature from another dimension, Kid Danger (Jace Norman) & Captain Man (Cooper Barnes) must rescue her from the evil science corporation that opened the portal!”

How To Watch

At home, you can get immersed by launching your Screens Up app and interacting with an AR world filled with animated jelly donuts, floating cotton candy, and other “stranger things” to experience. There will be three specific AR moments taking place during the episode, as well as live votes, various polls, GIFS, trivia, and much, much more.

Kids and parents can download the Screens Up app for free on the App Store and Google Play. You can also play along by visiting on your smartphone or tablet device!

Looking ahead, Nickelodeon, alongside its tech partners, Monterosa, The Mill, eyecandylab and We Are Royale, will continue to explore further AR TV experiences, as well as provide fun updates to its Screens Up application on a regular basis.

Grab your proton pack, strap on your super hero mask of choice, and launch the Screens Up app for the Henry Danger “Danger Things” interactive encore tonight at 8:30 pm ET/PT.
