Those of you that know me and follow my adventures, know that there’s nothing more exciting to me than a good spook, especially when fall is in the air! Who doesn’t love a little scare once in a while?
The event promises to be a chilling one, with more scare zones than ever! Also, with the introduction of the “Stranger Things” maze, with art designed exclusively by Kyle Lambert, the official illustrator of the mega-hit Netflix original series.
The “Stranger Things” maze, inspired by season one of the Netflix series, will come to life starting tonight, September 14th, at the Orlando Universal Orlando Resort.
The parallel universe, referred to as the Upside Down, that terrorized the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in “Stranger Things,” will bring the chittering, predatory Demogorgon to “Halloween Horror Nights” to stalk unwitting guests as they encounter iconic scenes, characters and environments from the mesmerizing series. The maze creation is a result of a collaboration with Netflix, along with the creators and executive producer of the blockbuster series—Matt Duffer, Ross Duffer and Shawn Levy, the area will include authentic representations of “Stranger Things,” designed to transport guests into artfully recreated scenes and storylines. From the menacing 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 chilling new mazes will offer surprising twists and unexpected turns around every corner.
Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” is the ultimate Halloween event. For more than 25 years, guests from around the world have visited “Halloween Horror Nights” to become victims inside their own horror film. Multiple movie-quality mazes based on iconic horror television shows, films and original stories come to life season after season, while the streets of each park’s event are transformed into highly-themed scare zones with menacing scare-actors lunging from every darkened corner.
I will be attending tonight with my husband, Sebastian, so our overnight bag is ready and we are excited to get spooked!
