This fall, Universal Orlando will take you inside the Upside Down when Stranger Things comes to Halloween Horror Nights.
The Orlando theme park announced on Tuesday that it is partnering with Netflix to bring the network’s supernatural adventure thriller to life at this year’s annual scarefest. The small town of Hawkins, Indiana will be recreated at Universal Studios’ Hollywood, Orlando and Singapore, where guests will experience some of the show’s most iconic moments, 80’s settings, and most loved characters.
“From the menacing Hawkins National Laboratory, under the U.S. Department of Energy, to the Byers home adorned with an erratic display of flashing Christmas lights and the eerie Upside Down woods oozing a shower of floating orb-like spores, the chilling new mazes will offer surprising twists and unexpected turns around every corner,” Universal said in a statement.
The series, set in 1983, and around a small town in Indiana, follows a group of adolescents whose young friend mysteriously disappears. The show is prepping for a third season.
Stranger Things is the latest pop-culture phenomenon to be added to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights in recent years. The house joins The Walking Dead and American Horror Story that have been part of the terror in years past.
The Stranger Things haunted maze is just one of nine announced for Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, beginning September 14 through November 3. Stay tuned for even more gruesome and demented details of the annual event.
