| | |

The hype for Universal’s Halloween Horror Night continues to grow as Universal has officially confirmed their second house for the 2023 season: Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”

Guests will be transported back to the upside down in the all-new haunted house at both Universal Orlando Resort & Universal Studios Hollywood, inspired by Season 4 of Netflix’s critically-acclaimed original series, where they will attempt to escape from Vecna’s curse. This marks the third time that a “Stranger Things” house has joined a Halloween Horror Nights event, & the first time since 2019!


According to Universal, 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 ex

perience 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.


Previously, Universal had announced that HBO’s “The Last of Us” will also be joining the 2023 Halloween Horror Nights lineup on both coasts.

Along with the news, Universal also announced that four new dates (November 1st-4th) have been added to Universal Orlando Resort’s version of the event, resulting in a record-breaking 48 nights of terror!

Halloween Horror Nights runs select nights from Friday, September 1 through Saturday, November 4 at Universal Orlando Resort and Thursday, September 7 through Tuesday, October 31 at Universal Studios Hollywood. Additional details, including new haunted houses, will be revealed soon. Stay tuned to ThemeParkProfessor.com for breaking news updates on all things Universal Studios.
