'Stranger Things' star makes surprise visit to MOA

An actor from a hit Netflix series surprised visitors at the Mall of America on Saturday.

David Harbour, who plays Chief Hopper on "Stranger Things," stopped by the Logchute ride - which has been transformed into Hawkins, Indiana, the setting for the show - for the weekend.

Harbour met with riders as they exited the Logchute. He is set to return to the mall on Sunday for a public Q&A. That will take place at 3 p.m. with a costume contest preceding it at 2 p.m. More information is available on the mall's website.

The visit comes as the new season of the sci-fi horror show is set to be released next month on Netflix.
