    ‘Stranger Things’ returns to Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights
    • July 13, 2023

    Universal Studios Hollywood will bring season four of the popular Netflix sci-fi thriller “Stranger Things” to life during its annual Halloween Horror Nights seasonal event.

    The walk-thru attraction will bring guests back to Hawkins, Indiana, where they’ll come face to face with perhaps the scariest villain in the series yet, Vecna. He’s hell-bent on destroying the barrier that exists between the real world and the Upside Down. The maze-like attraction will put those who dare to enter right in the middle of the action and supernatural terror that the television characters Eleven, Max, Eddie and the others experienced.

    Patrons will find themselves in the crosshairs of Vecna’s attacks as they venture through familiar scenes from the show including the Hawkins Lab, the Creel House and Vecna’s lair. After facing their biggest fears and the creatures that lurk in the shadows, they’ll have to escape Vecna or live in the Upside Down, cursed forever.

    “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.

    Halloween Horror Nights runs select evenings from Sept. 7 through Oct. 31. So far, the Universal City theme park has revealed that there will also be attractions based on the “Last of Us” video game, which went on to become a popular TV series on HBO earlier this year, and a maze based on the USA and SyFy series, “Chucky.” Additional maze announcements will be made in the coming months.
