Stranger Things Confirmed for Halloween Horror Nights 2023

UPDATE as of 11:01 am EST: Universal has officially announced the return of Stranger Things for Halloween Horror Nights as well as the record-breaking extension to 48 nights.

The house will be based on Season 4 of the hit Netflix show. Universal says:

This year’s petrifying haunted house will once again transport guests to Hawkins, Indiana, where they will encounter the newest supernatural villain, Vecna, who is hell-bent on obliterating the volatile barrier between the eerie Upside Down and the real world in an attempt to reign supreme. 

The “Stranger Things” haunted house mirrors the mind-bending twists and supernatural terror of Season 4, immersing guests in a heart-pounding experience alongside valiant characters from the series, including Eleven, Max, Eddie and more. Guests will find themselves on the front line of Vecna’s deadly attacks on the citizens of Hawkins while traveling through iconic scenes, including the notorious Hawkins Lab, the enigmatic Creel House and Vecna’s chilling mindscape. Along the way, guests will confront their deepest fears and come face to face with otherworldly creatures like demobats and even Vecna himself. In a race against the clock, guests find themselves in the ultimate showdown within Vecna’s blood-red Mind Lair, striving to escape and save mankind from his deadly curse.

Original Story: It appears that Stranger Things is officially coming to Halloween Horror Nights 2023! The Netflix show has been part of the event in past years and is a huge draw to the annual Halloween event. The confirmation was found originally by Facebook user Misty Ricker Hunt. An HHN commercial was aired during an on demand show confirming Stranger Things as well as the date extension into November.

Universal hasn’t made an official announcement about Stranger Things, but it should be coming soon. Halloween Horror Nights kicks off September 1 and runs through November 4 on select nights. All tickets including multi-night tickets are now available.
