Universal Studios is gearing up to deliver spine-chilling thrills and unforgettable scares as it announces the addition of an all-new haunted house based on Season 4 of Netflix’s hit series, “Stranger Things.”
The house will be part of both Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort’s Halloween Horror Nights.
This year’s petrifying haunted house will once again transport guests to Hawkins, Indiana, where they will encounter the newest supernatural villain, Vecna, who is hell-bent on obliterating the volatile barrier between the eerie Upside Down and the real world in an attempt to reign supreme. The “Stranger Things” haunted house mirrors the mind-bending twists and supernatural terror of Season 4, immersing guests in a heart-pounding experience alongside valiant characters from the series, including Eleven, Max, Eddie and more. Guests will find themselves on the front line of Vecna’s deadly attacks on the citizens of Hawkins while traveling through iconic scenes, including the notorious Hawkins Lab, the enigmatic Creel House and Vecna’s chilling mindscape. Along the way, guests will confront their deepest fears and come face to face with otherworldly creatures like demobats and even Vecna himself. In a race against the clock, guests find themselves in the ultimate showdown within Vecna’s blood-red Mind Lair, striving to escape and save mankind from his deadly curse. “From the opening shots of ‘Stranger Things 4,’ episode one, we knew this was meant to be an experience at Halloween Horror Nights,” said John Murdy, Executive Producer of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. “We’re excited for our fans to live Vecna’s curse as we recreate the iconic and terrifying moments from the show,” added Lora Sauls, Assistant Director, Creative Development and Show Direction at Universal Orlando Resort.
In an unprecedented move, Universal Orlando Resort is extending Halloween Horror Nights to a record-breaking 48 nights of fear, running until Saturday, Nov. 4. All event tickets are now available for purchase, including the popular Frequent Fear and Rush of Fear Passes, which allow guests to visit on multiple nights. For an even more immersive experience, guests can upgrade their Fear Passes to include express access.
Additionally, guests can opt for the Scream Early ticket, granting them early entry to Universal Studios Florida from 3 to 5 p.m. to enjoy the park’s thrilling attractions before the horror commences. To enhance their visit, guests can choose from various event upgrades, such as Express Pass, R.I.P. Tour, and the daytime Behind the Screams: Unmasking the Horror Tour.
So far, Universal has only revealed two other house themes: ‘The Last of Us’ and ‘Chucky.’
