Beginning in December, you can (without the gory deaths, of course, that’s a good thing right? RIGHT?!). Netflix is opening an immersive experience in Los Angeles called Squid Game: The Trials, combining a live high-intensity competition for participants, as well a “Night Market” offering Korean food, drinks, a Squid Game store and photo-ops. Chef Katianna Hong, of the Korean-Americana restaurant YANGBAN, is curating the food and beverage offerings.

The Squid Game will open at the Television City complex Dec. 6, with tickets opening up for purchase on Oct. 11. Tickets will start at $39, with the experience operating Wednesdays through Sundays. According to Netflix, participants will be greeted by the “Front Man,” the masked villain of the series, before tackling “a series of six escalating challenges, accumulating points as you advance,” revealed by Josh Simon, Netflix’s VP in a blog post.

What do you think? Will we see you in the game? Best of luck, competition.
