Welcome back to the Upside Down.
Netflix’s Stranger Things is returning for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights with new mazes inspired by seasons two and three.
Announced by Universal Studios, Halloween Horror Nights begins Friday, September 6 for Universal Orlando Resort in Florida and Friday, September 13 for Universal Studios Hollywood in California. This year’s Stranger Things mazes will pick up where last year’s left off, “continuing the suspenseful storyline where a predatory entity terrorizes the small town of Hawkins, Indiana,” delving even further into the Upside Down.
As a continuation of last year’s maze, which was based on Stranger Things Season 1, this year will be inspired by Seasons 2 and 3. The mazes will parallel the show’s jump to 1985, and include portions of the upcoming season. Stranger Things 3 won’t be released on Netflix until July 4, though this gives guests plenty of time to experience its story prior to Halloween Horror Nights.
Last year, IGN had the chance to check out the Stranger Things maze, and we found it terrifying and authentic. If you’re wondering just how scary it was, see where it landed in our ranking of last year’s Halloween Horror Nights mazes.
