Great to see something different (like not Walking Dead or Purge!) and a great property! I really hope they pull out all the stops and make this special.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Fans of the series will get the chance to brave the Upside Down and confront the supernatural as each park debuts all-new mazes inspired by season one of the critically-acclaimed series.


It's interesting that they specifically state that the maze will be focused on season one, if I were a betting man I'd bet that they've secured the rights to this property for a couple of years.

I haven't seen the show but I hear its really good. the thing about shows is they can do season after season, like the walking dead and American Horror Story. Should I watch the show or will it be self explanatory?

I'd recommend watching the show either way. But it feels like it'll be an attraction that you'd get a lot more out of if you had some familiarity with it.

Universal done did it. Stranger things is the ONE Intellectual property that could have woo'd me back after the B&T show was cancelled. I simply must visit that house.

Still not 100 percent getting Frequent Fear for the 5th year in a row, but I certainly just went from a "Might actually skip it this year and focus on Tampa Haunts/Not so Scary/Spooky Empire" to "Will at least buy the 2 night ticket".

They're basing the HHN stuff on the show's first season--watch at least that.

Last year, during Toronto's Nuit Blanche (White Light) art festival, Netflix did an upside-down installation where they made everyone put on the white suits to enter (great souvenir as well).

It was really cool.

Maybe Universal will do something similar. They gave out the suits at the start of the lines so you had tons of time to put them on.

You're joking right?
