Stranger Things coming to Universal Studios for Halloween Horror Nights


Stranger Things won’t returning to Netflix in time for Halloween this year. But an attraction inspired by the series is coming to three Universal Studios locations.

Universal Studios is about to get a bit stranger in three cities this Halloween, which may just be enough to tide you over until season three premieres next year — that is, if you don’t get trapped in the Upside Down.

As part of its 28th annual Halloween Horror Nights (HHN) event, Universal Studios will give fans the chance to navigate a Stranger Things-inspired maze this fall.

The attraction will be featured on select nights at Universal’s Hollywood, Orlando and Singapore parks — September to November in the U.S. and September to October in Singapore, according to the HHN website.

The maze is inspired specifically by Stranger Things‘ first season, according to the site. If you were looking for a reason the binge the show’s inaugural run… again, this is a pretty good excuse.

After all, you’ll need every advantage you can get if you want to brave the Upside Down.

In fact, you should be prepared to do so “more than once,” according to Universal. The maze will continually shuffle attendees between Hawkins, Indiana and the bone-chilling alternate dimension. And, yes, you won’t be alone.

The Demogorgon will be out for blood, so you should probably start doing cardio now. Hawkins’ babysitter-in-chief Steve Harrington won’t be there to save to you. Or will he?

According to Universal, the maze will feature characters from the show, including one major fan favorite.

"We’re very excited to be working closely with Netflix – to give our guests an immersive experience into the “Stranger Things” world by recreating some of the show’s most iconic scenes, 80’s settings, and most loved characters (#RIPBarb)."

As for recreating Hawkins itself, the maze will begin at Mirkwood, the road on which Will Byers first encountered the Demogorgon, and continue to the infamous Hawkins National Laboratory “where things have gone terribly, terribly wrong.”
