'Stranger Things' attraction is coming to Universal Studios

05 April 2018

Netflix has teamed up with the theme park brand to bring mazes inspired by sci-fi horror show “Stranger Things” to three of its parks for this fall’s “Halloween Horror Nights” events.

Season 1 of the hit supernatural series will be brought to life at Universal Orlando Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Universal Studios Singapore.

The temporary attraction will be set in a parallel universe called Upside Down, which fans of the show know was created by the Hawkins National Laboratory in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. The rural area is where the show is set in the 1980s.

In the show’s first season, a kid named Will Byers is abducted by a creature from this alternate dimension, and his friends and a psychokinetic girl named Eleven set out to find him. Will’s friends refer to the monster as the Demogorgon, a demon from the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons.

Universal Studios, in a release, promises that the mazes 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.”

The theme park giant worked closely with creators and producers of the show to recreate 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 adds in the release.

Though the “Stranger Things” attraction is brand new, the annual “Halloween Horror Nights” first debuted at Universal in Orlando in 1991 as “Fright Nights,” and later at parks in other areas. The spooky event is known for mazes based on horror TV shows, films and original stories, and actors jumping out to scare guests throughout the parks.
