Prepare to head back to Hawkins, Indiana for another round of frights as the wildly successful Netflix supernatural series Stranger Things returns to Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights this fall. In celebration of the announcement, here are 5 reasons we can’t wait for the new maze.
The Upside Down
The new maze will once again take those who dare inside The Upside Down. Universal Studios Florida is partnering with Netflix and the creators and executive producers of Stranger Things to create authentic representations of the series, so you can bet the Upside Down and those terrifying Demodogs will be as real as they are on the show.
The Halloween haunt will pick up where last year’s house left off. Park-goers will get the chance to further explore the Upside Down, and experience more of the monsters and mysteries that live there. The house will carry on from Season 1’s storyline and into Season 2, where you will see iconic places form the series, like Jim Hopper’s Cabin and more.
Perhaps the most exciting part about the new Stranger Things house is that it will take guests through scenes from the upcoming Season 3. The haunted house will parallel the hit show as it leaps forward to 1985. Netflix’s Stranger Things 3 begins streaming on July 4, 2019.
Universal released an announcement video, which features a scene from the show with Jim Hopper in the Upside Down as the camera flips and unveils Universal’s signature logo. We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
Other HHN Haunts
The announcement of the Stranger Things house means that Universal is hard at work coming up with more haunts for this year’s event. That also means that Universal will begin to release more and more details about what’s to come to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights.
Stranger Things is the first house to be reveled for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. Orlando’s premiere Halloween event will have ten haunted houses, five scare zones and live entertainment. Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights runs September 6 through November 2. Stay tuned for more details.
