Universal Studios Hollywood Offering Daytime “Lights On” Experience of Halloween Horror Nights “Stranger Things” Maze

Stranger Things Maze Lights On

For the first time ever, Universal Studios Hollywood is offering guests the chance to experience a “Halloween Horror Nights” maze with the lights on. The new experience, which will be available to daytime guests offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the Upside Down comes to life at “Halloween Horror Nights.” This once in a lifetime experience will be available from Monday, October 29 through Friday, November 2, 2018. The self-guided tour of the maze will be included in the price of daytime admission to the park.

Working collaboratively with Netflix, along with the creators and executive producer of the blockbuster series—Matt Duffer, Ross Duffer and Shawn Levy, the maze is an authentic representation of “Stranger Things,” designed to transport guests into artfully recreated scenes and storylines in season one. 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, guests will discover how the chilling new maze offers surprising twists and unexpected turns around every corner – in the light of day.

Each night at “Halloween Horror Nights,” the parallel universe, referred to as the Upside Down, that terrorized the small town of Hawkins, Indiana in “Stranger Things,” brings the chittering, predatory Demogorgon to stalk unwitting guests as they encounter iconic scenes, characters and environments from the mesmerizing season one of the critically-acclaimed series.

Want to experience the maze with the lights out? Universal Studios “Halloween Horror Nights” has also extended its Halloween season and will continue on select nights through November 4. For more information and to purchase tickets for “Halloween Horror Nights,” visit
