Halloween Horror Nights 2018: The World Turned Upside-down


Let me just get one thing out of the way real quick:


Now that’s out of the way. In lieu of a Transformation Tuesday post, I’m using today to talk about the latest announcement out of Halloween Horror Nights.

It looks like I need to get caught up on Stranger Things because, as of this morning, it’s finally been announced that the Netflix hit will be coming to Halloween Horror Nights in the form of a maze. I apologize to all of my friends who texted me in excitement this morning only for me to say, “yeah…”

It’s basically been one of the worst kept secrets since the rumors started swirling around earlier this year.

I’m sure I’ll be more excited once I’ve seen the show. I started the first season when it first came out but I just couldn’t get into in. I made it two episodes in if I recall. I was told I needed to give it a chance but I just didn’t have it in me to stick it out with something that wasn’t holding my attention.

I sit here now and solemnly swear that I will give it a shot for the sake of Halloween Horror Nights.


Here’s what we know about the maze:

It will be based on Season 1 and will include the predatory Demogorgon and the Upside Down, an alternate dimension, along with characters and locations from Hawkins, Ind., including Hawkins National Laboratory and the Byers home. Series creators Matt and Ross Duffer and executive producer Shawn Levy are collaborating on the project.

From the Horror Nights Blog:

We’re very excited to be working closely with Netflix – to give our guests an immersive experience into the “Stranger Things” world by recreating some of the show’s most iconic scenes, 80’s settings, and most loved characters (#RIPBarb).

You’ll faithfully follow the storyline, starting off on Mirkwood and then quickly moving to inside Hawkins National Laboratory where things have gone terribly, terribly wrong.

From there you will experience all the most memorable moments and environments from the show while being hunted at every turn by the Demogorgon.

And of course, you’ll step into the mysterious darkness of the Upside Down more than once – whether you like it or not.

So there we have it.

The first house of the year!

With 164 days to go, I wonder if I’ll get my IT themed house.

  1. Stranger Things was the same way for me–it took about 5 episodes before I was fully vested in watching it all. Then I was foaming at the mouth for season 2. Then I had a marathon of that season. Now I can’t wait for season 3. Hope you end up having the same experience!


    1. We shall see! I haven’t found the time to start the series yet. I think it’s one of the ones that netflix will let you download for offline viewing so I might just download a couple episodes for my flights tomorrow since I’m traveling!
