In this all-new haunted house, guests will feel as though they have been transported into Hawkins, Indiana, where the newest supernatural villain, Vecna, is hell-bent on obliterating the volatile barrier between the eerie Upside Down and the real world.
Universal said the haunted house will mirror the mind-bending twists and terror that was introduced in last year’s Netflix release of season 4.
The theme park said the house will immerse guests in a heart-pounding experience alongside characters including Eleven, Max, Eddie, creatures like demobats and even Vecna himself. Fans of the series will also get to see popular and iconic scenes including the Hawkins Lab, the enigmatic Creel House and Vecna’s red mind lair.
“We’re excited for our fans to live Vecna’s curse as we recreate the iconic and terrifying moments from the show,” said Lora Sauls, assistant director of creative development and show direction at Universal Orlando Resort.
This is not the first time that the “Stranger Things” series has been at Halloween Horror Nights. Universal Orlando launched its first haunted house from the series in 2018 followed by another haunt in 2019.
Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights will run for a record 48 nights. On Thursday, the theme park extended the event dates through Nov. 4.
