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".

Stranger Things is literally my favorite TV show ever made, so this is THE thing that's gonna drag me back to Universal. Can't wait!!

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.

Watched season 1 and thought it was a good show, but nothing crazy IMO. Need to rewatch though and get on season 2, because I don't remember anything at this point honestly. I had to google the monsters from season 1 because I didn't even remember anything "scary", and when this house was announced I was a bit confused. But I can see them doing something really cool with it all.

This is a show that can be very scary if they want to.
