Stranger Things Fans: You Can Visit the Upside Down This Halloween

Visit the freaky Stranger Things maze at Universal Studios' annual Halloween Horror Nights, if you dare.

October 12, 2018

If you're (im)patiently waiting for the season three release of Stranger Things (like me!), then add Universal Studios' Upside Down World to your fall must-visit list. The theme park partnered with Netflix to create a terrifying Stranger Things maze for its annual Halloween Horror Nights. The seasonal attraction features elements from the Upside Down, the Byers' house and Hawkins National Laboratory with special appearances by the predatory Demogorgon. (If I'm speaking gibberish to you, then you need to binge-watch ASAP.) If you muster up the courage, visit the attraction now through November 3.

To get guests even more excited about the theme park's brand-new Stranger Things attraction, Hilton Orlando is concocting delectable themed treats. Ensuring the fun continues past the park, guests can sip on warm waffle cocktails, dark and stormy spirits and dive into yummy upside-down cakes inspired by the show.

A nostalgic ode to Stranger Things' '80s setting, the hotel is serving up the retro pastry as a pleasant contrast to the terrifying Upside Down World.
