For the first time ever, Universal's resorts are partnering with Netflix to bring “Stranger Things” to life at this year’s “Halloween Horror Nights” events.
For Florida fans, that means followers of the series will get the chance to brave the "Upside Down" and confront the supernatural as the park debuts all-new mazes inspired by season one of the series.
The parallel universe, which is what is meant by the reference to the Upside Down, terrorized the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in Netflix's "Stranger Things."
Designers with Universal Orlando say they will bring one of the central spooky figures of the series, the chittering, predatory Demogorgon, to “Halloween Horror Nights” to stalk guests as they encounter iconic scenes, characters and environments from the series.
Working collaboratively with Netflix, along with the creators and executive producer of the series, the mazes at Universal Orlando Resort will be authentic representations of “Stranger Things,” designed to transport guests into recreated scenes and story lines.
From the 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 new mazes will offer surprising twists and unexpected turns around every corner.
Halloween Horror Nights begins Friday, September 14 in Orlando.
Universal is promising that additional details about the events will be revealed soon.
