Universal Studios has announced that Stranger Things will be coming to their Halloween Horror Nights this year! Fans will be given the opportunity to enter the Upside Down and face the horrific creatures that dwell in it. Each of the Universal theme parks will debut mazes inspired by the first season of the hit supernatural series. Here are the details from the press release, which also came along with a little promo teaser:
The parallel universe, referred to as the Upside Down that terrorized the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in Netflix’s mega-hit “Stranger Things,” will bring the chittering, predatory Demogorgon to “Halloween Horror Nights” to stalk unwitting guests as they encounter iconic scenes, characters and environments from the mesmerizing series.
Working collaboratively with Netflix, along with the creators and executive producer of the blockbuster series—Matt Duffer, Ross Duffer and Shawn Levy, the mazes at Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Singapore will be authentic representations of “Stranger Things,” designed to transport guests into artfully recreated scenes and storylines. 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.
I'm a huge fan of Halloween Horror Nights and I've been attending it for years. As a fan of Stranger Things, I'm pretty excited to experience the madness that Universal will deliver.
Halloween Horror Nights opens on Friday, September 14th in Hollywood and Orlando and on Friday, September 28 in Singapore.
