‘Stranger Things’ at HHN
“Stranger Things” was featured in houses and mazes at Universal Studios Florida and Universal Studios Hollywood in 2018 and 2019. This new “Stranger Things” house, inspired by season four and Vecna, has been rumored for a few weeks.
An official press release is available here.
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.
“Stranger Things” season four aired in 2022. Season five, the final season, does not have a release date yet. Season four follows the group as they are separated; with Mike, Will, Jonathan, and El in California; Hopper in Russia; and the rest of the gang in Hawkins. It introduced several new characters, including fan-favorite Eddie Munson, and villain Vecna.
Halloween Horror Nights 2023
Halloween Horror Nights is an annual hard-ticket event held each fall at Universal Orlando Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood, Universal Studios Japan, and Universal Studios Singapore. It takes place on select nights between September and October (and sometimes November).
Admission is separate from regular theme park admission. You do not need theme park admission to attend Halloween Horror Nights, but if you have a day ticket, it allows you to stay in the park to wait rather than exit and re-enter when the event opens.
Halloween Horror Nights 32 at Universal Orlando Resort will feature 10 haunted houses, 5 scare zones, and an unconfirmed amount of live entertainment.
The event’s tagline for 2023 is “Never Go Alone,” after a common saying between veteran HHN attendees.
