I don’t want to say, “I told you so,” but I did. Universal Studios just announced that Stranger Things will indeed be one of the houses included in this year’s edition of Halloween Horror Nights. This may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but those who love this event will surely understand that excitement.

Coming off an amazing season 4, the Netflix series is one of the most popular streaming experiences ever! It makes sense that Universal would include a house dedicated to Eleven, Mike, Lucas, Will, and Dustin! This isn’t the first time the crew has made their way to Halloween Horror Nights. Stranger Things made an appearance in 2019 as well.

Terror hides around every corner! 2023 will be the 32 edition of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando and Universal Hollywood. The highly anticipated event incorporates everything we love about Halloween into a night of terrifying fun for Guests. As the sun sets, both coasts transform, monsters come out to play, and fog rolls in. Guests are treated to elaborate haunted houses with scary actors and movie-quality set designs. Visitors to Halloween Horror Nights can find exclusive merchandise and food as they navigate numerous scare zones located around the Parks. Halloween Horror Nights is a separate ticket event and will begin Friday, September 1, 2023.

If you’ve been living under a rock, that’s the only acceptable answer for not knowing what Stranger Things is. Still, if you don’t know, the top-rated Netflix series follows a group of teenagers who meet a young girl with special powers. Together they must save their Hawkins, Indiana home from unspeakable, parallel terrors. The show recently wrapped up its fourth season and is preparing for its final run in the summer of 2024. The Netflix series is extremely popular and has led to branch out careers for actors like Millie Bobby Brown, David Harbour, and Sadie Sink. Other notable names in the series are Winona Ryder, Paul Reiser, Joseph Quinn, Jamie Campbell Bower, and Sean Astin. Stranger Things has been responsible for many pop-culture references, including some we expect to see in 2023’s Halloween Horror Nights House

”Stranger Things’, Halloween Horror Nights

There is little information, but we know that Halloween Horror Nights’ new house will focus on season 4 of Stranger Things. This means that fans can expect popular characters such as Eddy and Vecna! Guests can also expect to visit the mind lair with Vecna. We hope to see numerous scenes from season four in this year’s house. We speak for everyone when we say we need Dustin and Eddy fighting demi-bats while Metallica’s ‘Master of Puppets’ wails in the background.

‘Stranger Things” HHN Merchandise

Wasting no time, Universal has already started putting out Stranger Things merchandise. Matt Dobrovolsky shared the following images to Facebook. Featuring Vecna, HHN merchandise will include t-shirts and hate (so far). Stranger Things Halloween Horror Nights merchandise can be found at several locations around Universal, including All Hallow’s Eve.
