Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights Enters an Alternate Dimension with the Highly-Anticipated Arrival of Netflix’s Original Series “Stranger Things” as All-New Supernatural Mazes
Award-winning Sci-Fi Thriller Comes to Life for the First Time Ever at Premier Halloween Events in Hollywood, Orlando and Singapore
Halloween Horror Nights is one of the premier haunted events to attend during the Halloween season. If you want to immerse yourself in your favorite horror films, look no further.
For many years now, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood (and most recently Universal Studios Florida) has frightened and delighted me and my Wife Nikki. We love the non stop barrage of scares and, of course, the incredible designs of the mazes offered at the events. One big thing we always look forward to is stepping into our favorite films, tv shows or video games. Coming face to face with Jack Torrance from The Shining, having Pyramid Head loom over you or even trying to escape the grasp of Alice Cooper while traversing the seven layers of hell itself is such a rush. All of that seems to be overshadowed by one of the biggest properties in current pop culture…STRANGER THINGS. We are huge fans of the television show and simply cannot wait to see what the creators and artists, who put together Halloween Horror Nights, have in store for us! We just hope we come face to face with a Demogorgon or even dead Barb! Below you will find the official press release from Universal Studios regarding this HUGE announcement.
What do you think about this announcement? Are you excited? Do you think IT can be topped by another intellectual property? (see what I did there…) Let us know on social media!
For the first time ever, Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Singapore are partnering with Netflix to bring “Stranger Things” to life at this year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” events. Fans of the series will get the chance to brave the Upside Down and confront the supernatural as each park debuts all-new mazes inspired by season one of the critically-acclaimed series.
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.
Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 25 years, guests from around the world have visited “Halloween Horror Nights” to become victims inside their own horror film. Multiple movie-quality mazes based on iconic horror television shows, films and original stories come to life season after season. And, the streets of each park’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones where menacing scare-actors lunge from every darkened corner.
